#MyrtleMondays: Year-End Honors for Cold-Blooded Myrtle

Huzzah! Dear Readers, I am so excited to share some good news that’s come our way. Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries Book 3, Cold-Blooded Myrtlehas been named to two (2!) Very Exciting Lists!

First up, the Wall Street Journal featured Cold-Blooded Myrtle in their annual holiday gift guide:

“Younger Holmes fans (and older ones too) should be charmed by Elizabeth C. Bunce’s “Cold-Blooded Myrtle,” the latest entry in her series featuring 12-year-old amateur sleuth Myrtle Hardcastle. In 1893, Myrtle receives a double Christmastime shock: the death, in “The Final Problem,” of her fictional idol Holmes, and the apparent murder of the proprietor of her town’s mercantile store. Tidings of discomfort, indeed.” –The Wall Street Journal

And I’m thrilled to announce that Kirkus Reviews has named Cold-Blooded Myrtle a Best Book of 2021! (Kirkus also gave Cold-Blooded a starred review.) Myrtle and I are in some truly incredible company. Check out the 10 Best Middle Grade selections here. Egg nog all around!

Big thanks to Kirkus and the Wall Street Journal for these fantastic honors!
