A few comments…The Widows of Malabar Hill is the first in a new series by Sujata Massey. Ms. Massey also wrote the Rei Shimura series which is one that I very highly recommend. The first book for Rei is The Salaryman’s Wife. Each title in the Rei Shimura series looks at an aspect of Japanese life. Malabar Hill is the first of a new series set in India. I have read both in this new series.
Dorothy Simpson writes a very solid set of books set in a small English town and featuring Luke Thanet, his team and his family. They are easy, good reads.
Margery Allingham wrote during the “golden age” of mystery. Here are three of her novels.
Enjoy these and the others listed below.
