Praise for Widow’s Wreath:
“An exciting and twisted tale of hatred and family honor that will keep you guessing until the end.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Absolutely delightful!”
Suspense Magazine

“Riggs opens up important topics in a thought-provoking mystery.”
Manhattan Book Review

Praise for the Martha’s Vineyard mysteries:
“There’s no better Vineyard guide than Cynthia Riggs and her character, Victoria Trumbull. She’s got the island’s DNA in her genes, knows all the history as well as its mystery, and creates a spellbinding tour of my favorite place on earth.”
—Linda Fairstein, NYT bestselling author of the Alexandra Cooper mysteries

“Satisfying…Fans of darker cozies will enjoy Riggs’s blend of crime, island lore, and well-drawn characters.”
Publishers Weekly on Trumpet of Death

“Riggs’ pleasantly old-fashioned sleuth is still clever enough to come up with a surprising culprit in another graceful homage to the island both she and her author call home.”
Kirkus Reviews on Trumpet of Death

“Riggs, who describes the beauties of her acerbic sleuth’s island home as lovingly as ever, provides a…satisfying conclusion.”
Kirkus Reviews on Bloodroot

“Riggs, a 13th-generation Islander in her mid-80s, is adept at fashioning an intriguing puzzle rendered in no-nonsense New England prose with particular respect for the abilities of the elderly. And she spins another good yarn.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch on Bloodroot

“Delightful…a cozy that celebrates the springtime beauty of the island as well as its quirky, endearing residents.”
Publishers Weekly on Touch-Me-Not

“Riggs’ character development and her lovely descriptions will have readers longing for both a trip to Martha’s Vineyard and the next book in the series.”
Booklist on Death and Honesty

“People are so nice in West Tisbury that even the villains seem less than evil ― more like seriously naughty.”
The New York Times on Indian Pipes

“Lovely descriptions of the Vineyard in the fall, plenty of suspenseful action and a cast of eccentric supporting characters…help make this another winner.”
Publishers Weekly on Indian Pipes

“There are many levels on which to enjoy Cynthia Riggs’s latest mystery….There is the twisting and turning plot of a good murder mystery. And there is prose, beautifully written, by a wonderful writer.”
The Martha’s Vineyard Times on Indian Pipes
