When away from her desk, she obsessively knits wool socks and enthusiastically speaks Portuguese with a shocking disregard for the rules of grammar. She indulges her passion for historical fiction and all things British by writing the Beryl and Edwina Mysteries.
Jessica’s books have twice received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly as well as one from Library Journal. Her first novel won the Daphne du Maurier award for mystery.
Well-drawn women, plot twists, and details of wartime and postwar Britain distinguish this historical cozy.
With its strong sense of place and time, this will be welcomed by fans of Brody’s Kate Shackelton mysteries.
