Praise for The Body in the Garden:
“Schellman’s well-researched fiction debut uses nuanced, elegant prose to depict a fully realized world.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[An] enjoyable debut…Schellman’s colorful detective trio and skillful use of historical fact will appeal to fans of Catherine Lloyd.”
Publishers Weekly

“The mixed-race identities of her partners in crime solving and the methods through which they navigate London society add richness to the tale beyond mere Regency-era tropes…Pleasant.”

“Katharine Schellman’s 1815-set debut has all the glittering trappings of the era, while examining the privilege and racism at its core.”

“Schellman throws in several twists and turns and suspicions move from one character to another… The Body in the Garden has a good story, is well researched, and employs good writing.” 
—New York Journal of Books

“An incredibly charming debut mystery. I look forward to more of Lily’s adventures.”
San Francisco Book Review, 5-star review

“A perfect London crime novel and a masterful debut; fast-paced, expertly researched, and intricately plotted. I actually gasped when I got to the end!
—Alex Grecian, New York Times bestselling author of The Saint of Wolves and Butchers

“[An] elegant, excellently-paced, and thoroughly engrossing mystery. Filled with charm, wit, and vivid historical detail, Katharine Schellman’s debut is a pure delight from start to finish!”
—Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries

 ”Clever and satisfying, this debut novel delivers characters that draw you in and plot twists that keep you guessing. Fans of Tasha Alexander’s Lady Emily mysteries will want to set aside space on their bookshelves for the adventures of widowed amateur sleuth Lily Adler.”
—Greer Macallister, bestselling author of The Magician’s Lie and Woman 99
