She writes from her two-story home library, where she lives with her husband, five precocious cats, a large doll collection, entirely too many fountain pens, and over 4,000 catalogued books.

Reviews

Praise for No Cure for the Dead: "Skillfully blending the stories of actual people with fictional characters, including several from her `Lady of Ashes' series, Trent weaves a serious tale with a sobering tone that will appeal to fans of Nancy Herriman's British-born nurse." -Library Journal "A natural fit for fans of Ann Perry's William Monk mysteries." -Booklist "Trent transforms the Lady of the Lamp, Florence Nightingale, into a natural and formidable sleuth. Filled with fascinating historical details, a cast of diverting characters, and a perplexing mystery, No Cure for the Dead is a riveting to start to this new series." -Anna Lee Huber, bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries "Mystery meets medicine in No Cure for the Dead, Christine Trent's absorbing tale-a suspense-filled reimagining of the historic Florence Nightingale as a resolute sleuth, determined to keep both murderers and illness at bay. Weaving in authentic period details, Trent offers a fascinating glimpse into the grim world of nineteenth-century nursing, as well as the larger social conflicts of the day. Overall, an intriguing, well-crafted and satisfying read!" -Susanna Calkins, author of the award-winning Lucy Campion historical mysteries "The Lady with the Lamp proves herself to be no slouch as a sleuth in this historical mystery featuring nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale. The grislier aspects of murder-to say nothing of the only slightly less horrific details of 19th-century medical practice-are leavened with subtle humor, and sharp-eyed readers may spot characters from Ms. Trent's earlier series featuring Victorian undertaker Violet Morgan." -Sheri Cobb South, author of the John Pickett mysteries "With the formidable Florence Nightingale as sleuth, Christine Trent has crafted a clever mystery rich with details of common medical practices, and which also lets us peek into the upper-class world of mid-19th century London. Great fun." -Nancy Herriman, author of the Bess Ellyott mysteries "An engrossing murder mystery set in a 19th century version of a nursing-home with a cast of characters who might have stepped out of a Dickens novel." -Rennie Airth, author of River of Darkness "Clever and complex, with many hanging threads that are ably clipped by Florence during the denouement. Trent is doing double duty here: telling a great story, and educating the reader." -Mystery Scene Magazine
