Praise for THE VANISHED BRIDE:
Romps along and is lashed with Gothic colour. Fun and inventive
Brontë fans will undoubtedly get the most out of this: possible inspirations for [the sisters' works] 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
Brilliantly entertaining and original
Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Brontë sisters would have been delighted. A standout book
Incredible . . . Bella Ellis is a very special talent: the Brontës are magically brought to life in this gripping, twisty mystery. I need more!
Brontë 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 Brontë mysteries are to be expected
Evocative and utterly enchanting
Ellis's writing flows beautifully. The book gathers pace as the 'detectors', which the women like to be called, become more involved in the circuitous plot and the eventual outstanding denouement, which is one of the best and most unexpected I have come across recently.
A Gothic mystery perfect for Brontë fans
Great Gothic fun for fans of the Bronte siblings
Ellis's portrayal of this extraordinary family is so loving and persuasive that the book is more heart-warming than blood-chilling
