"Fans of spunky, historical heroines will love Henrietta Von Harmon." --Booklist, starred review
"Flavored with 1930's slang and fashion, this first volume in what one hopes will be a long series is absorbing. Henrietta and Clive are a sexy, endearing, and downright fun pair of sleuths. Readers will not see the final twist coming." --Library Journal, starred review
"Michelle Cox masterfully recreates 1930s Chicago in A Girl Like You, bringing to life its diverse neighborhoods and eclectic residents, as well as its seedy side. Henrietta and Inspector Howard are the best pair of sleuths I've come across in ages--Cox makes us care not just about the case, but about her characters. A fantastic start to what is sure to be a long running series." --Tasha Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The Adventuress
"In A Girl Like You, Michelle Cox offers striking descriptions of the seamy side of 1930s Chicago. Readers of historical romance and suspense will root for the destitute but hardworking Henrietta Von Harmon as she risks everything for Inspector Howard in a story that will keep readers guessing right up to the last page." --Kristen Harnisch, award-winning author of The Vintner's Daughter and The California Wife
"The authentic setting rich in cinematic detail of Chicago during The Great Depression is the perfect backdrop for a plethora of vivid characters in Michele Cox's novel A Girl Like You--one being an ambitious dance hall girl, Henrietta von Harmon, soul breadwinner of her fatherless family. But when her boss is found dead, in walks Inspector Clive Howard whose chemistry with Henrietta promises even more twists and turns in this highly entertaining mystery." --Sande Boritz Berger, author of The Sweetness
"Cox brings the economic hardships and rigid class structure of 1930s Chicago to life in her captivating mystery, A Girl Like You. Henrietta Von Harmon must provide for her family after the suicide of her father, but jobs are scarce. Although she must hide her job from everyone she knows, Henrietta becomes a taxi dancer, a woman of questionable virtue who dances with men for money. When someone is murdered and a girl disappears, Henrietta is persuaded by Clive, a handsome homicide detective, to go undercover at a dangerous venue. Anyone who enjoys a well-written romantic mystery set in a gritty time and place will enjoy A Girl Like You." --M.A. Adler, author of In the Shadow of Lies
"The Depression-era world of a poor girl's Chicago is a dicey deal for Henrietta Von Harmon--but she is resilient. In Michelle Cox's capable hands, Henrietta takes the reader of A Girl Like You on a wonderful romp through the seamier side of an early 20th-century working girl's life. The realities of a fatherless family, a weary mother, and a dearth of opportunity don't overpower Henrietta's curiosity, her willingness to work hard, her knack for making alliances, and her vision of a better future. The book's cast of additional characters, headed by Inspector Howard, accompanies Henrietta through a murder, a dangerous job, and touching reminders that life turns on small intimacies. This engaging book bodes well for the following works in the series!" --Barbara Stark-Nemon, author of Even in Darkness
"Cox does an excellent job in her description of the era of the 1930s. Her characters are well developed and introduced in a timely manner. A Girl Like You is very intriguing, well written, and the plot very entertaining. Readers will be drawn into the sights, smells, and seedy side of Chicago." --Reader Views
"Reminiscent of clandestine affairs with a Philip Marlowe vibe, A Girl Like You: A Henrietta And Inspector Howard novel by Michelle Cox, will transport the reader into that golden era of gumshoe romance. Cox's use of literary detail brings scenes into full focus as the reader anxiously races through the pages of this deliciously written cloak and dagger affair. A delightful story." --Readers Favorites

Kurzbeschreibung

Henrietta Von Harmon works as a 26 girl at a corner bar on Chicago’s northwest side. It’s 1935, but things still aren’t looking up since the big crash and her father’s subsequent suicide, leaving Henrietta to care for her antagonistic mother and younger siblings. Henrietta is eventually persuaded to take a job as a taxi dancer at a local dance hall—and just when she’s beginning to enjoy herself, the floor matron turns up dead.

When aloof Inspector Clive Howard appears on the scene, Henrietta agrees to go undercover for him—and is plunged into Chicago’s grittier underworld. Meanwhile, she’s still busy playing mother hen to her younger siblings, as well as to pesky neighborhood boy Stanley, who believes himself in love with her and keeps popping up in the most unlikely places, determined to keep Henrietta safe—even from the Inspector, if need be. Despite his efforts, however, and his penchant for messing up the Inspector’s investigation, the lovely Henrietta and the impenetrable Inspector find themselves drawn to each other in most unsuitable ways.
