PRAISE FOR THE FIONA FIGG MYSTERIES
PRAISE FOR High Treason at The Grand Hotel
"A clever mix of humor and espionage that will keep you turning the pages and laughing all the way!" - Dianne Freeman, author of the award-winning Countess of Harleigh mysteries.
"The Fiona Figg mysteries are a perfect blend of wit, fun, and intrigue. With Fiona's ever-changing outfits and innovative methods of spying, author Kelly Oliver has created another winner with her well-written High Treason at the Grand Hotel." - Debra Goldstein, Author of the Sarah Blair Cozy Mysteries
"On assignment in Paris, during The War, novice spy Fiona Figg wears disguises to broaden her information-gathering net. Soon she's up to her fake eyebrows in intrigue, jewel thieves, invisible ink, double agents, and master spies. Lushly layered in period detail, Book Two of the Fiona Figg Mystery captivated my attention. Fiona Figg runs on moxie, heart, and stunning hats. This historical mystery delivers twists and turns in a lighthearted tale of suspense and derring-do. I can't wait for the next one!" - Muddy Rose Reviews
"Oliver offers another whimsical World War I espionage escapade featuring a file clerk/spy-in-training working for British Intelligence. In between murders and speculation about double agents, Oliver treats readers to an often amusing romp through upscale 1917 Paris, where the partying stands in stark contrast to the squalid conditions that the protagonist experiences in a Parisian jail. A fun diversion with an entertaining female lead." - Kirkus Reviews
"A delightful romp through WWI Paris, rich with period detail, effervescent with British resourcefulness, and full of gentle humor reminiscent of early Hollywood zany comedies. A refreshing lark." - Keenan Powell, author of the award-nominated Maeve Malloy Mysteries
"High Treason at the Grand Hotel is a tale marinated in feminist sensibility. Underestimated, condescended to, oft overlooked, Fiona is easily the better of her confederates and is the novel's only true match for the diabolical Fredericks... If you're a habitué of the continent of cozy, if you want your excitement without too much blood on the wall, if you enjoy a resourceful heroine who (mostly) saves herself, then you'll find a great deal to enjoy." - Paul Eberly Reviews
PRAISE FOR BETRAYAL AT RAVENSWICK
"Take a plucky sleuth, a handsome soldier, a shady stranger, add mystery and a dash of espionage, shake well, and you have Betrayal at Ravenswick. Fans of traditional mysteries will root for Fiona Figg as she navigates the treachery of London and a seemingly bucolic English country manor at a time when everything in England was changing." - Liz Milliron, author of The Homefront Mysteries
"I truly enjoyed reading Betrayal at Ravenswick. Fiona's self-deprecating humor and unspoken asides connected me to her from the start. The story is filled with memorable characters, and it is wonderfully suspenseful. I am awestruck by how seamlessly Oliver has woven in researched material. What great details-from medical treatments of the time to facial glue! I'm glad this is a series, and I can look forward to more." - Lorraine Lopez, PEN Faulkner Award-Winning Author of The Darling.
