Fiction Review: Shelley Freydont’s “A Golden Cage”

This review is a stop on the Great Escapes Blog Tour for A Golden Cage.


I really need to get and read the first of this series! And all subsequent, of course! I’m definitely hooked.

Incredible depth of language. That’s how I can sum up this work in one sentence. The author’s use and mastery of description, dialogue, and story is amazing. The characters are given more and more facets with each scene, which brings amazing depth to this “cozy mystery” – a genre where many authors often focus on the plot and only scratch the surface of their subjects.

The author also does a great job of setting the time period through character dialogue and actions – one of the best “show, don’t tell” examples I’ve read in a while. It is very easy to become immersed in the story!

I’ll admit, it would be fun to hang out with Dee, and have adventures, but she definitely needs a partner, someone to go with her and keep her out of the worst of her dangerous investigations. Perhaps there are hints this will come in future books? We shall see!

You have the chance to win your own copy! Enter here, and good luck!

I received a review copy of this work from the publisher through NetGalley
