Nobody's Secret hc

Nobody's Secret - Michaela MacColl An entertaining YA cozy featuring a teen-aged Emily Dickinson as the sleuth. Emily meets a handsome stranger who later turns up dead in the family fish pond. She feels the authorities aren't giving the case the attention it deserves and sets out to solve the mystery. The author pays great attention to the details; vividly describing the world of Emily's time and the life she led. Each chapter starts with a snippet of Dickinson's poetry that sets the mood for that chapter. I really enjoyed this one and wouldn't mind reading more about the teen-aged Emily.
