DEADLY RESCUE is a story of determination, ego, and grit. A fascinating look at lesser-known parts of WWII added to my enjoyment of this stellar series. I eagerly await its next installment.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Overall, this is a solid, historical mystery with a good plot, authentic characters, and plenty of ‘atmosphere’ that will immerse the reader in the story. I especially loved the authentic atmosphere of Deadly Rescue. Everything throughout the story felt true to the period, from dialogue to thoughts to the setting.

Livvy makes a wonderful sleuth in this historical cozy. Readers who like historical fiction and particularly the WW II era, will find much that resonates and are sure to enjoy this one.

When the daughter’s German fiancé is murdered, the police refuse to let anyone depart until they find the killer. If Olivia wants to escape Denmark with the chemist and his breakthroughs, she will have to unmask the killer before the Nazis stop her forever.
