Praise for The Vanished Bride: Rumours. Scandal. Danger. The Bronte sisters are ready to investigate . . .

  • Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Bronte sisters would have been delighted. A standout book

  • Bronte fans will undoubtedly get the most out of this: possible inspirations for Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall are everywhere. But you don't need insider knowledge to enjoy either the splendid adventure, or the touching and often funny portrayal of the sisters' devotion to and exasperation with one another and their debauched brother. - Guardian

  • A gorgeous book - perfectly paced and completely charming. As a mystery, it is compelling and satisfying; as a portrait of the Brontes it is insightful, moving and inspiring. It is an absolute treat from start to finish

  • Brilliantly entertaining and original

  • Bronte aficionados are sure to enjoy the accurate characterization and context, the twists turns and Gothic touches of the plot, and the strong feminist streak that manifests itself throughout, but most triumphantly at the end. Happily, more Bronte mysteries are to be expected. - TLS

  • Romps along and is lashed with Gothic colour. Fun and inventive. - Daily Mail

  • Wonderful . . . A treat for everyone. I loved it so very much

  • Incredible . . . Bella Ellis is a very special talent: the Brontes are magically brought to life in this gripping, twisty mystery. I need more!
