News and Reviews...
“In BURNING EDEN, Sarah Bewley creates a wonderful cast of characters, skillfully depicting life—and crime—in small-town Florida. BURNING EDEN is one hot debut!” — Alan Orloff, Anthony, Agatha, and two-time Thriller Award-winning author.
“We tend to associate the Sunshine State with the glitz of Miami and the whirlwind of colorful theme parks that is Orlando. But Burning Eden, Sarah Bewley's strong debut, is a gritty procedural set in the drought- and brushfire-stricken swamps of northern Florida. Complex, sympathetic characters and a well-plotted mystery make for a compelling introduction to this author. Just don't start it until you have plenty of time to read. It's hard to put down.” — Loretta Ross, author of The Auction Block Mysteries.
“From its first descriptions of the burning swamps of north Florida to its slam-bang ending, I couldn’t put down Sarah Bewley’s debut, Burning Eden. Part Southern Gothic, part contemporary Florida man, it’s filled with vivid characters and richly described settings. Sure to be on my Best of 2023 list.” — Neil S. Plakcy, author of the Angus Green FBI thrillers
