Praise

Praise for Silence in the Library 
“Schellman’s gracefully written whodunit is equally a tale of 19th-century female empowerment and societal conventions…More than a clever murder puzzle, this is an immersion in a bygone era.”
—Kirkus Reviews


Praise for The Body in the Garden:
“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

“[An] elegant, excellently-paced, and thoroughly engrossing mystery.”
—Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries

 ”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
 
“Sensitive handling of class and race issues common to London in the early 1800s give the story depth…[A] smashing debut.”
BookPage, starred review
 
“Schellman’s well-researched fiction debut uses nuanced, elegant prose to depict a fully realized world.”
Kirkus Reviews

“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.”
Booklist

“Will appeal to fans of Catherine Lloyd.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“An incredibly charming debut mystery. I look forward to more of Lily’s adventures.”
San Francisco Book Review, 5-star review

“If you need a truly enjoyable start to a new historical murder mystery series, this is your book.”
BookRiot, Unusual Suspects Newsletter
 
“Katharine Schellman’s 1815-set debut has all the glittering trappings of the era, while examining the privilege and racism at its core.”
