The Widows of Malabar Hill

51IfRuAFLSL._SY346_The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey was another choice I keep reading about. And, while I liked it, I didn’t love it. I don’t know if my expectations were too high expectations. It was a good story with likable characters, but it was too long and the main character said a few things over and over that made you crazy (like I was the first female solicitor in India). I don’t normally read mysteries, so perhaps this was part of the problem as well. I wouldn’t discourage people from reading it, but I wouldn’t rush out and make this one a priority either. In a nutshell (from Amazon): “Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female lawyer, is investigating a suspicious will on behalf of three Muslim widows living in full purdah when the case takes a turn toward the murderous.” Add it to your summer list if you like mysteries, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
