Rose Gallagher Mysteries

Murder on Millionaires’ Row (#1)
“With a strong, likable heroine and a well-drawn cast of characters, this highly recommended romp through late 19th-century New York will have readers clamoring for the next installment.”

Library Journal, Starred Review

“Lindsey kicks off her new series with a spooky paranormal mystery/thriller filled with historical tidbits, a touch of romance, and a talented and delightfully gritty sleuth.”

Kirkus

“Lindsey’s quirky mix of supernatural shenanigans and well-drawn historical detail augurs well for future installments.”

Publishers Weekly

“Rose, Thomas, and an NYPD detective join forces with various practitioners—a warlock, a medium, an apothecary, various witches—to thwart the apocalypse. The first in a projected series, this should win fans with its plucky protagonist, who defies expectations of her class and gender; genre-blending plot; brisk pace; and potential for romance.”

Booklist

“A delectable brew of lighthearted intrigue, drama, and yes, even a little bit of romance as we go hunting clues through the streets of late 19th century New York City with one of the most delightful lady detectives I’ve ever met.”

“A delectable brew of lighthearted intrigue, drama, and yes, even a little bit of romance as we go hunting clues through the streets of late 19th century New York City with one of the most delightful lady detectives I’ve ever met.”

Fresh Fiction

“Sharp, insightful, and more than a little sassy, Rose Gallagher is a heroine to cheer for. Lovers of historical mysteries and all things supernatural will devour MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES’ ROW and clamor for more.”

Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Death in St. Petersburg

“MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES’ ROW is utterly charming, scrupulously researched, and beautifully felt. I enjoyed every page and cannot wait for Rose to stick her fingers into ever more perilous pies.”

Lyndsay Faye, bestselling author of Gods of Gotham and Jane Steele

“A charming mystery of manners. Ghosts, murder, magic, and a heroine who’s impulsive but also refreshingly smart about her choices. What’s not to love?”

Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo-award winning author of Shades of Milk and Honey

A Golden Grave (#2)
“A rousing paranormal adventure that explores the vast class differences shaping the heroine’s romance, with real historical personages adding a fillip.”

Kirkus

“If Amy Stewart’s adventures featuring Miss Kipp married an episode of TV’s Murdoch Mysterious, it would become this books’ balanced blend of mysticism and mystery.”

Library Journal

“Lindsey’s rollicking sequel to 2018’s MURDER ON MILLIONAIRES' ROW […] Fans of paranormal historicals will be well satisfied.”

Publishers Weekly

“Wonderful characters and intricately described class divides of the time. For fans of the previous book and of Amanda Allen’s Santa Fe Revival mysteries.”

Booklist

“Lindsey balances history, a budding romance, a dash of paranormal activity and surprising humor. (A scene involving the as-yet-unveiled Statue of Liberty is surreal and hilarious.) In the language of its time, this is a corker.”

BookPage

“A GOLDEN GRAVE was another great read from one of my favorite authors.”

The Bibliosanctum

“Ms. Lindsey does a wonderful job bringing the charm and shadiness of the Gilded Age of New York City to life […] If you enjoy some history in your mystery, with the addition of some supernatural elements, you will want to add A GOLDEN GRAVE to your TBR pile.”

All About Romance

“A lively, entertaining book, with an interesting background and use of history, and a vigorous and determined heroine.”

Genevieve Cogman, author of the Invisible Library series

“Clever and spunky sleuth Rose Gallagher encounters a paranormal mystery with a fascinating cast of characters in this charming and compelling novel. A deft and delightful blend of history, mystery, and the supernatural, A GOLDEN GRAVE kept me turning pages late into the night, and I will happily follow Rose on future adventures!”

Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries

“A GOLDEN GRAVE is an intriguing mystery that combines historical and paranormal elements seamlessly. Rose’s journey as she tries to navigate her new world, while remaining faithful to the old, is charming. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!”

Alex Erickson, author of the Bookstore Cafe Mysteries

The Silver Shooter (#3)
"Superbly characterized . . . Based on historical characters and filled with high adventure, romance and scares, Rose’s newest adventure is a winner."

Kirkus
