Historical Novel Society Editor’s Choice Nominee
From the Historical Novel Society’s Review of Violet’s Problem:
“…the heroine of Martinelli’s slim volume won me over almost instantly, and the style had me snickering and sometimes laughing throughout.”
“I adored this sweet little book and look forward to continuing my acquaintance with Violet in the future.”
The Violet Strange Mysteries are nine detective stories for young-adults, each story a major case for Violet Strange, a debutante and secret high-society detective, living and working in New York City in 1899, The Gilded-Age. The stories are based on A.K. Green’s 1914 short stories, but they are completely re-imagined and re-written for tweens, teens and adults today.
