About Jessica

Agatha award nominee Jessica Ellicott loves fountain pens, Mini Coopers and throwing parties. She lives in northern New England with her dark and mysterious husband, exuberant children and a precocious poodle named Sam.

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.

As Jessica Estevao she wrote the Change of Fortune Mysteries. When inspiration strikes she writes contemporary mysteries as Jessie Crockett.

A heaping helping of period English country charm.
Kirkus Reviews
A treat for readers who enjoy following the adventures of disparate yet complementary sleuths.
Publishers Weekly

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.
