Harini Nagendra recommends
Glory Be (2023)
(Glory Broussard Mystery, book 1)
Danielle Arceneaux
"Glory Be is a hilarious and thrill-filled ride through the bayous of small-town Louisiana and is filled with rich descriptions of place and superb characterization. Glory Broussard grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go. I can't wait to find out what Glory and her daughter Delphine will get up to in their next set of adventures."
Unladylike Lessons in Love (2023)
(Marleigh Sisters, book 1)
Amita Murray
"A superbly crafted historical novel, and a romance that doubles up as a mystery, with a delicious Indian twist--what's not to love? Amita Murray's brilliant take on a traditional Regency romance is smoking hot--and heartbreakingly realistic about the racial and class divide that dominated 18th century English society. I can't wait to read the next book."
