I haven't read it but now I want to, killer nuns?? ha!!!I haven't been keeping up with the thread so I don't know if anyone has mentioned Red Sister by Mark Lawrence? It was a daily deal on audible, so I got it. I wasn't thrilled by it - I guess if you're going to read/listen to a book about killer nuns you have to expect a lot of violence, but there was a lot of violence.
Anyone else read it?
Those books sound really interesting. I'll have to check them out.I just finished two books by Sujata Massey, the first two "Perveen Mistry" Mysteries. They are about a Parsi female lawyer in 1920s Bombay. They are easy to read provided you have a bit of background information on cultures in India. The take on mysteries is interesting because as a female lawyer, she is able to access the wives, daughters, and mistresses who live in seclusion to help them solve money and property problems that would have otherwise been usurped by male agents "advocating" on their behalf. It definitely glosses over the real world that was 1920s India: Mistry is from a wealthy, progressive family; she studied at Oxford and so has high-level British connections; and her clients so far have been wealthy widows and even royalty, but they are fun, engaging reads. I'd suggest them if you like mysteries that aren't too rooted in the nitty gritty hard-boiled real world.
The author has another series about a female English teacher in Japan solving mysteries...I might try those out although I might have a strong reaction being an English teacher in Asia as well. Haha~
Let us know if you enjoy it or not. I think the only books I read by her were a trilogy, but I really, really enjoyed them. Here's the Goodreads link if anyone is interested: Penny Vincenzi The Spoils Of Time Trilogy 3 Books Collection Pack SetI'm reading Penny Vincenzi book called Almost a Crime. Its 800+ pages so will take a while.
