"A sweet new mystery series by a top-notch author who writes under a few pen names. Katie is a likable heroine, fallible yet strong, tough but tender. A great book for readers looking for something light--and who also look for happy endings. I expect this series to go on for a long time."
--The Cozy Library

"[A] fantastic start to a new cozy series . . . A Crafty Killing kept my attention from the very first word until I turned the last page. The red herrings were aplenty, and the killer a complete surprise. Ms. Bartlett has created a crafty tale that must be read."
