Can you believe this was my first ever adult mystery book? As a kid I was mildly obsessed with Encyclopedia Brown, and devoured every single Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys book, but then I went away from the mystery genre and never made my way back. The Widows Of Malabar Hill was the perfect re-entry into this space. 

It is the story of four women who’s lives get  tangled up with each other following a gruesome murder. Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female solicitor, and the three widows of wealthy industrialist Omar Farid who lived on Malabar Hill. A classic who done it that will keep you guessing till the end! Honestly, I had no idea who the killer could be till the very end – I kept changing my mind.

What I loved even more than the mystery aspect was the historical references. Sujata Massey made 1920’s Bombay come alive in my mind. I felt like I was right there, in the fabulous Mistry Courthouse, or down at the gritty docks, it all felt so real.

Things you should know about me. I'd always 'rather be reading', cute shoes are my jam, and I've never met a carb I didn't want to try.

I'm also a bad-ass at launching brands, and my marketing campaigns have won international recognition. I also love writing and Instagramming (that's a word now right?)
