Has Kerry Greenwood ever been nominated for a Barbara Jefferis Award? She should be. Miss Phryne Fisher is independent, brave, confident and caring. She respects herself and other women. She knows who she is and what she wants. She also knows how to laugh.
The best thing about Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is the delightful Miss Fisher herself — sassy, self-assured and stylish.
In Murder in Montparnasse, Miss Fisher extricates herself from a brutal man, helps other women take control of their lives and enjoys herself immensely. Surely that makes her a role model?
