What People are Saying About This

Michael Slung

Scholars might be loath to hear this, but, popular culture being the continuum that it is, Miss Cayley's Adventures can be seen as a superior example of the chick lit of its era. Its heroine remains to this day as appealing and amusing as any Bridget Jones, and her exploits are filled with moments of wit, action, and sheer fun. (Michele Slung, editor, Crime on her Mind: Fifteen Stories of Female Sleuths from the Victorian Era to the Forties)
