Entertainment Weekly Reviews WHY MERMAIDS SING!

This week's ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY is running a review of my new Sebastian St. Cyr mystery, WHY MERMAIDS SING. It's my first-ever Entertainment Weekly review, so I'm pretty excited about it. Not sure I'd have described the book this way, but hey, I'm not complaining! Here it is...

Why Mermaids Sing
by C.S. Harris
Reviewed by Tina Jordan

Regency-era London--abuzz with the grotesque murders of several wealthy young men--looks to noblemen/sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr to solve the crimes

MOVIE PITCH: It's Hannibal Lecter--early 1800s style!

LOWDOWN: A serial-killer thriller set 200 years ago? It may sound incongruous, but it works, thanks Harris' pacing and fine eye for detail. A real plus: the murk and stench of the age only heighten the suspense.

Wow. Great news!

And you must have got blogger really, *really* excited about it too! The post is up there three times!

Great job, Candy. You worked really hard on this book, and you deserve all the praise it gets and more...

congrats. That "Hannibal Lecter" connection can only help.

This is huge! Wow, I am really excited for you. Was this something a publicist worked to place? How do things like this happen -- after the obvkious, which is that someone writes a really great book?

Congratulations!

I was excited to see it in EW, too. Barnes and Noble Online shipped my copy early, I've already finished it, and I think it's the best one to date.

Lisa, as I understand it, EW contacted my NAL publicist. She said she suspected GOD's three starred reviews brought their attention to the series.

Well congratulations on writing a great book and having good things come from that!
