Praise for Death on Tuckernuck

“A mystery that’s so suspenseful it’s hard not to skip a chapter to see if certain deeply likable characters are still alive . . . The novel lives and breathes New England island life, with a plot brimming with the best kinds of rude surprises.”
The Washington Post 

“A story of murder and mayhem set against a chilling storm that threatens all of New England…what makes Death on Tuckernuck so riveting is Mathews’ description of the storm and turbulent sea.” 
The Denver Post

“If you’ve never experienced a hurricane, this is the next best (or worst) thing to it, as the author describes in vivid detail the power and devastation it can cause . . . a fast-moving story involving greed, murder, and the will to survive.” 
Mystery Scene

“A wedding, a hurricane, and a murder combine in a breathtaking mélange . . . An exhilarating, page-turning blend of mystery, detection, romance, and people-versus-the-elements.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Gripping . . . Readers will keep turning the pages to see what happens next. Mathews once again displays her storytelling powers.” 
Publishers Weekly

“Nature’s fury and the frantic, batten-down-the-hatches scramble to protect man and beast make for gloriously tense reading . . . the race against the clock is thrilling, and the remote island setting, where everyone knows their neighbors and police must do without state-of-the-art crime labs, makes the title a good fit for fans of rural or small-town police procedurals.”

“A striking page-turner . . . Mathews is a gifted storyteller, able to keep both storylines pumping with adrenaline and shreds of hope.” 
Kingdom Books

“The mystery is a cracker…If you want to read books that make you feel as though you’re experiencing life on Nantucket Island, you need to read Francine Mathew’s Merry Folger series. It also goes without saying that, if you want to ‘experience’ a hurricane without actually living through one, you need to read Death on Tuckernuck.”
Kittling Books 

“Fast-paced from beginning to end . . . Death on Tuckernuck thoroughly intrigued me with its exotic locales, vast assortment of interesting characters, and suspenseful action.” 
Gumshoe Review

Praise for the Merry Folger Nantucket mysteries

“Wonderful . . . Nantucket and its impenetrable fog and characters come to life.”
—Diane Mott Davidson
“What a treat to have a new addition to one of my very favorite series! Francine Mathews’s prose is elegant, her heroine appealing, her setting vivid, and her characters shine. For mystery lovers, the Merry Folger books hit every note.”
—Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author of Garden of Lamentations
“An admirable, well-written series, with Folger evolving into an ever more complex character as love and loyalty collide with her professional pride and ethics.”
The Orlando Sentinel
“​Mathews is a story teller, and she has a fine sense of time and place. Her descriptions of Nantucket make you taste the salt air, and the drawl of the long-time residents puts you on the island​.”​
—The Denver Post ​
