The Widows of Malabar Hill (2018)
(Perveen Mistry, book 1)
Sujata Massey
"Perveen is strong, tenacious and smart, just the kind of advocate you'd want to have on your side. And as someone who was born and raised in the city, I love the way in which Massey recreates colonial Bombay, down to the architecture, social interactions,politics and gender dynamics. You can feel the breeze coming off the Arabian Sea and taste the pastries at Yazdani's bakery."

Murder At Morrington Hall (2019)
(Stella and Lyndy Mystery, book 1)
Clara McKenna
"Murder at Morrington Hall gallops along with horses, murder, an arranged marriage, and intrigues in a grand English house. It's a fast-paced, perfect afternoon's read. I'm looking forward to the next one."
