Interesting.

Amaranthae I'm finding it interesting too but, at the moment, I can't see me carrying on with this series. This book is OK, for me, as a stand alone but beyond that... the jury s out. 4mo
PhyllisH @Amaranthae I‘m sorry it‘s taken so long to reply. I‘ve been away from Litsy for awhile.
I feel the same way. It was interesting but I found the repression of women to be depressing.

Part mystery part historical fiction, I ended up enjoying this bookclub choice. Set in early 1900‘s India, the story revolves around a Parsi woman who has earned a law degree from Oxford University and is hoping to use her knowledge to aid woman‘s rights in her country. Lots of interesting content regarding the different sects with their customs, laws, traditions and beliefs. Bonus for the delectable food descriptions & recipes included.

Cinfhen I think I‘ll continue on with the series 😊💕 7mo

I started this one on audio, switched to print because I was struggling to get into it, and then finished it on audio. I think maybe in the end the struggle was my own, because eventually I found myself not wanting to turn it off. I love Perveen. This isn‘t a true dual timeline book in my opinion, but I love how the author took us back to Perveen in 1916/1917. What happens to her (🤬) during that time plays a huge part in the person/solicitor ⬇️

Bookzombie she becomes. I will definitely be continuing with this series. #setinacountrywhereUNpeacekeepersare This is my final book for #Booked2021 ! 11mo

I was transported to a time and place I have never read about before, 1920s India, which made a rich backdrop to this mystery. I loved the strong female protagonist and her relationships with family and friends. I enjoyed the journey this book took me on. And I‘m glad #booked2021 gave me a reason to read it. I will definitely continue with this series for #UNpeacekeepers prompt ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Next up for #booked2021. It has been on my list to read forever and by happy coincidence whilst looking for a book to fill the #setinacountrywhereunpeacekeepersare prompt it was on sale. I want to celebrate India as the biggest contributor of troops since the the UN peacekeeping inception and the first country to deploy an all female contingent to a UN peacekeeping mission in 2007 (which I think the female sleuth in this book would be proud of)

I really enjoyed this novel but besides the mystery, I was fascinated with the history behind the story: how women were treated in India during this period of time and that main character was inspired by Cornelia Sorabaji‘s life. This edition has an interview with author, a glossary, information about Parsi, about Cornelia Sorabaji & even some recipes. It also mention some references.The audiobook help me to know how to pronounce some words.3.85⭐️

What a fun read! I think the slightly corny way almost every chapter ends was unnecessary. I also found the implicit anti-Muslimness interesting. The actions of Mr Farid are not at all how the Quran instructs men with multiple wives to behave, and almost all the Muslim characters are dishonourable. That aside, I still found it a lovely read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I didn‘t know that I wanted to read a historical mystery set in 1920s Bombay, featuring a plucky, progressive heroine drawn into unraveling a murder mystery at the home of three secluded Muslim widows. But I did. This was fascinating. I learned so much about the various cultures & religious practices that came up throughout the novel. The book does a great job balancing flashbacks to Perveen‘s past with the mystery she‘s unraveling in the present.

BarbaraJean This is my #DoubleSpin for February, and number 4 for #NewYearWhoDis. So glad this was recommended by @MeganAnn —I probably wouldn‘t have come across it otherwise! And now I‘m looking forward to the second book in the series. 2y

A straightforward murder mystery that patiently guides the reader through the complicated setting of 1920s India. Perveen is a Parsi solicitor, and one of the first women from Bombay to study law. Haunted by her own failed marriage, she stumbles upon a conspiracy surrounding three widows in purdah. Perveen and the reader are called to reconcile the diverse culture Perveen loves, alongside the antiquated laws that seek to oppress her.

I read Sujata Massey‘s mysteries about a Japanese-American living in Japan a few years back and enjoyed them but has given up looking out for any more. I was pleased to spot this on Libby: a new series set in the 1920s, featuring Perveen Mistry who is a young female solicitor in Bombay. So far it is lots of back story and not much mystery, but I‘m enjoying it.

Sujata Massey made it on my auto-buy list after reading the tagged series and realizing she also wrote The Sleeping Dictionary which is another favorite of mine.

Others are Rebecca Roanhorse, Nnedi Okorafor, Kevin Kwan. I loved books by N.K. Jemisin, Jasmine Guillory, Kwame Mbalia and Mira Jacob and would definitely auto-consider anything by them as well. I need to read some of their back lists too.

I found this slow & ended up skipping sections but I think it's another case of *me being the problem rather than the book. Our MC is the first woman to practice law in Bombay (based off a real person, I learned) which should have been fascinating. It also gives an overview of the various religious & ethnic subcultures living in the area. I hadn't known there was such variety. Really, I should have LOVED this but I just couldn't get into it.

This was a great mystery set in 1920s Bombay with a side of incipient feminism 🙌🙌 It is definitely one for mystery lovers first and foremost - Perveen is India‘s first female solicitor with the support of her progressive Parsi family. She usually is limited to paperwork rather than meeting clients - but when a client dies her ability to gain access to the man‘s widows living in purdah puts her in a unique position ⬇️

Centique It‘s well set up for a series, and what makes it special is Parveens harrowing back story. The book jumps between 1917 and 1921 to give us the back story as well as the mystery. Lots of great food references which are making me really hungry too! 😂 2y

This mystery series is a new favorite! Perveen Mistry is the first woman lawyer in Bombay. She uses her skills to help women living in full purdah, meaning they do not have contact with any men besides immediate relatives. Perveen as a woman can meet face to face with these women where her male colleagues cannot.

I've been fascinated with books set in India or about Indian culture lately and these two are hands down my favorite. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Set in early 1920s India, this story revolves around Perveen Mistry, Bombay‘s first female solicitor. Much of the first half of the novel focuses on Perveen‘s backstory, while the second half focuses more on solving the narrative‘s mystery. In many ways the novel is less about the mystery than it is about Perveen, making it similar to how the narrative of the first Maisie Dobbs mystery played. I‘ll read the next book in the series ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

MsMelissa @vivastory @Cinfhen @Librarybelle I‘m at the halfway point and like it, but the mystery component is only now taking off. All lot of the narrative thus far has been backstory for the main character. In that regards it reminds me a lot of the first Maisie Dobbs book, if any of you have read that one. 3y

Came upon this goodie the old-fashioned way: browsing with curiosity at my branch library😁.

The years: 1916-1921 in Bombay. The investigator is Perveen Mistry, a Parsi Indian who becomes one of the first female lawyers in India. This read has history, mystery, sub-plots, Indian and British characters, and the convergence of old and new attitudes and customs regarding gender, culture, and religion. #mystery

Sujata Massey‘s historical crime novel (the first in a series) is a well constructed affair that does an excellent job of portraying 1920s multicultural Bombay, what the rise of the independence movement means for the city‘s various religious and cultural groups and the problems faced by women, but the murderer is a little easy to guess and I wanted more of Alice and Perveen‘s friendship than what‘s on the page.

Really enjoyed this one. It as the tone of a cozy mystery , but the setting (1920‘s Bombay) is fascinating and full of details about the different religions in India, including Hindu, Muslim and particularly Zoroastrianism which is the religion of the main character. The mystery involves a young female lawyer (one of the first in India at that time) who gets involved in a mystery involving the widows of a Muslim man. A fun and different mystery!
