Murder Under a Red Moon
A Bangalore Detectives Mystery
by Harini Nagendra

“When new bride Kaveri Murthy reluctantly agrees to investigate a minor crime to please her domineering mother-in-law–during the blood moon eclipse, no less–she doesn’t expect, once again, to stumble upon a murder.  Anti-British sentiment is on the rise, a charismatic religious leader is growing in influence, and the fight for women’s suffrage is gaining steam.”

Meeting location: Jo Hill’s – see your branch directory for the address.

A Novel
by Jacqueline

“The private, quiet ‘Miss White’ as Elinor is known, lives in a village in rural Kent, England, and to her fellow villagers seems something of an enigma. The residents of Shacklehurst have no way of knowing how dangerous Elinor’s war work had been, or that their mysterious neighbor is haunted by her past.”
