    Has anyone else noticed the similarities between these books and Andrea Penrose’s Wrexford & Sloane books?

  2. Shannon: 10 months ago

    Could anyone tell me if the St Cyr mysteries are gory or anything? I love a good mystery, but would rather not have explicit descriptions of mutilated corpses or anything like that. Need a new writer and hoping this series will fit the bill

    • Andrea: 8 months ago

      I finished the first book in the series and there are only two murders within the story but, yes there are detailed descriptions of the bodies. Gory? Explicit? I would not go that far. It is certainly given in an informative way and relative to the story. I would classify it as rated R if it was a movie.

    • Stan Smith: 1 month ago

      Not in the sense of violent scenes or actions… but it’s a murder mystery series and does occasionally contain situations in which a decomposing body is examined and relevant to the story.

      I loved the Anne Perry Charlotte & Thomas Pitt Series and read that Harris was “like” Perry. Yes and no. Different writing styles but each is addictive. I was just happy to see that she’s relatively young… hahaha. I hated that Anne died and miss her.

      If you start with book ONE you’ll like the series a lot. By the end of Book Two… you’ll need a 12-Step Program to quit.

    Have read and enjoyed all of the St.Cyr books.
    Just finished reading “Good Time Coming”! Absolutely wonderful. I am in awe of all the incredible research you did for the book. I must say that you truly brought real life into your characters. I have never had a true interest in the Civil War History, but your book brought such passion and reality into the situation of the characters that I was left with a lump in my throat and a new special regard for its history. Thank you.

    I have been reading the St Cyr series for a few years. I have them all except for the newest one. I want to try some of her other work. These books have been read and reread many times.

  5. Renee: 1 year ago

    Best series. I am reading them all! Just bought three more to add to my two on my shelf ready to be read. And reading book #3.
    Great writing.
    Thank you.

  6. Lorie Poff: 1 year ago

    An enjoyable series. I wish her historical romance and thriller series were available as audiobooks

    • Rachel: 1 year ago

      I have listened to most of the books through Hoopla – most libraries allow you to access a huge collection of audio books for free from hoopla so check out your local library.
      I also suggest the Veronica Speedwell series.

      • Rachel: 1 year ago

        Oops was referring to the St Cyr series.

  7. Connie Lee Zech: 2 years ago

  8. Rollaynne M Bentley: 2 years ago

    Good Time Coming was exceptional, your research was incredible. Hope to see more like this and, of course, St Cyr novels. Thank you.

  9. Kate Martindale: 2 years ago

    Have come to find these books exceptional.
    The story lines and historical facts that are woven into them outstanding.
    My library has most of them and only too happy to purchase the ones that they don’t.
    Can’t put them down and read well into the night.
    Look forward to any further books published to read.

  10. Judy: 3 years ago

    Love Love LOVE the series. My only complaint is that I read faster than she can write.

  11. Margaret Price: 3 years ago

    What a thrilling collection of stories about Sebastian and Hero St. Cyr. My daughter and I are both reading them, finding that we finish one and pick up the next. Thank goodness our library has all you’ve created to date. When can we expect the 2022 edition? Keep on writing!!!
