"The portrait of the claustrophobic, creepy Borden household and its denizens, Lizzie especially, is grippingly vivid.... Read it for the suspenseful plot." --Kirkus Reviews
"This is a very intriguing glimpse into Lizzie Borden's persona.... When a book has you wondering and searching for more on the subject, that's a sign the authors achieved their goal. Engaging historical novel that gives readers another glimpse into the infamous Lizzie Borden." --YA Books Central
"This thrilling novel will keep readers on their toes until the last page. Fans of historical fiction and horror will thoroughly enjoy this book." --VOYA Magazine
"It is the promise of Lizzie finally succumbing to her madness that drives the story forward." --Hypable
"The authors weave together such a beautiful and ghastly novel that I finished the entire book in under 48 hours.... The...characters in Sweet Madness are also very well-written and help to retell the Borden's story in such a way that I felt like I knew them personally. I think that the best part of this novel is that it is written in a very stylistic manner and the dialogue used by the characters...are profound. This novel was an enjoyable read and gives a new perspective on what could have happened all those years ago." --The Young Folks
