This Just In . . .
A Veil Removed

is getting lots of great press from reviewers and fans alike! (And by the way, wouldn’t Rita Hayworth make a great Henrietta?) Check out a few of the reviews rolling in so far:

“Entertaining…Composed of large dollops of romance and a soupcon of mystery, this confection will appeal.” – Publishers Weekly
“Cox draws textured visuals of a 1930s Chicago mansion replete with cherrywood drink carts, embroidered goose down pillows, brand new wireless radios, Worth gowns, Rothschild coats, and the music of Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. It puts us back in the romantically turbulent 1930s Chicago. This engaging story charms us.” – BookTrib

“These two are a delight as an investigative duo. They work well together and their banter is delightful. If you are looking for a clever series to read this will be for you!” – Broken Teepee

“As Henrietta’s extended family continues to develop, they are rewarded with stories of their own in this engaging historical-mystery series.”
 “I love how the author provides readers with historical details such as clothing, architecture, society and culture. As with each of the books in this series, I found all the characters to be very likable and the stories are mysterious without being too much.  Ms. Cox has a great writing style and the characters are very well written.”

And speaking of reviews . . . so many of you have been kind enough to tell me in person, online or in an email about how much you like the series – and I truly Thank You!!! You don’t know how much each and every message means to me. 

But what would REALLY HELP is if you would put up even just a 1-line review on Amazon or Goodreads about the books!  I would be so very grateful!
