|Editorial Review||Review Quotes "Well developed with strong characters, the reader is drawn in. I recommend it." 4 star Amazon Review by Katy, July 8, 2016. "As a historian the author weaves her expert knowledge of era and place into the story with fine detail and transports the reader into the life of early settlers on the banks of the river and the intrigue of the paddle steamer trade...I recommend this book to anyone who loves a "cozy" with a difference and appreciates good storytelling." 5 star Goodreads review by Helena Holton, Jul 13, 2016. "It was amazing. 1870s Australia might not be a conventional setting for cozy mysteries, but "A Gem of a Problem" shows exactly how well suited it is. The backdrop of pastoral Australia is beautifully written to bring out its charms and challenges, evocative of the era and with uniquely Australian characters." 5 star Goodreads review by Jacquie Garton-Smith, 12 July 2016. "Such a great read...In a theatre situation [Major Barnaby] is the one you boo and throw stuff at." Facebook Recent Reads review by Judy Borrett, 20 July 2016.|
