Praise for Nora Charles:

"Death With An Ocean View is the first in the Kate Kennedy senior sleuth mystery series. Anyone who reads this will realize that life doesn't end at sixty. There are plenty of characters, which create a number of suspects thus, making this an excellent debut mystery. The surprise at the end as to who the killer is makes it a entertaining read." Kelly Ross, The Romance Readers Connection (Read the full review)

"A charming new series ... Kate Kennedy is a warm and funny heroine." Nancy Martin, author of the Blackbird Sisters Mystery series

"Miss Marple with a modern twist... (Nora Charles) is a very funny lady!" Donna Andrews, Agatha and Anthony award-winning author of You've Got Murder

"Kate Kennedy is a stylish and sophisticated Miss Marple, seeking justice in sunny South Florida instead of a rainy English village, and meeting the most delightfully eccentric suspects in the process." Victoria Thompson, author of Murder on Mulberry Bend"

"In Death With an Ocean View .. the author nicely pulls together a large cast of characters, each of whom seems realistic despite individual eccentricities. Charles nicely expores the power of longtime friendships and how a senior citizen sees beyond her image as a widow and begins to rebuild her life." Oline H. Cogdill, Mystery Columnist for the Sun Sentinal

"Death With an Ocean View launches the new Kate Kennedy series ... the setting is exquisite -- warm and cloudless -- and this feeds Kate's dislike for Florida. She came from New York, where gloomy days are part of the package. Little details of that nature shape her character and make her extremely likeable ... Kate owns an adorable Westie named Ballou who serves as her companion and protector ... those looking for a charming mystery series will be pleased with Death With an Ocean View. I am anxious to see more of Kate and Ballou." Tracy Farnsworth, Romantic Times

"Nora Charles has done a great job creating the characters and setting for this story. I look forward to reading many more in the series! I highly recommend this book." Dawn Dowdle, Reviewer, B&N.com

"The characters in Nora Charles' excellent debut mystery are active, thrill-seeking and full of joi de vivre." Harriet Klausner, Reviewer, B&N.com.
