Author Biography

A Bustle attached to a keyboard, occasionally to be seen floating on a canal ...
After studying Early Music in Italy followed by a brief career in concert performance, the Bustle exchanged vocal parts for less vocal arts i.e. a Diploma from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia.
Her inky mess, both graphic and verbal, can be found in various regions of the Web, and appendaged to good people's works (for no visible reason that she can understand).

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite

Julia Warren must unravel a mystery more than a century and a half old in Greenwood Tree by B. Lloyd. Ex-Officer Orville has charmed his way into the 1783 Lichfield society, the salons and grand houses, and secured a substantial inheritance from the eccentric and highly extroverted Sir Morton. As Julia Warren begins to unravel the mysteries surrounding Officer Orville in 1927, she suddenly finds that there is more than just one mystery to solve. Legend and reality become an intertwined mix of confusion as she tries to figure out who the agent, Oddman, was and why he was sent to spy on Orville. Who is Mr. Grenall? Why would a pagan god walk away because you stopped looking at it? Does the Gronny Patch dream when it sleeps? How do all of these intricate parts fit together in the multi-layered mystery? Has Julia bitten off more than she can chew and will it drive her mad before she draws all of the strings together?

The mystery that B. Lloyd has compiled in Greenwood Tree is certainly complicated and full of intricate twists and turns. In fact, it is several mysteries wrapped up inside of each other. It is impossible for the reader to stop following the knotted up mess, just as it is impossible to leave a ball of string that is tangled in knots. The reader is fully engaged with Julia throughout and can feel the perplexities right along with her. Suspenseful, intriguing and intricate; Greenwood Tree is certain to draw plenty of attention among mystery enthusiasts and will keep them scratching their heads right up until the end.
