Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Hi! I'm looking for a brainstorm of books you've enjoyed/heard good things about in the mystery/thriller genre that are either written by a woman or feature a woman as a key character!

I have about a million Ruth Rendall, Val McDermid and Martina Cole suggestions but they are all quite dark'n'shiz so I'm not sure if it's what you're after.

We should totally read some Agatha Christie tho - I'd recommend starting with either Murder on the Orient Express or And Then There Were None!

Orrrr there's Minette Walters and I'd suggest either The Scold's Bridle or The Ice House, both of which are amazing.

The Brighton Mermaid by Dorothy Koomson is told from the POV of a woman, by a woman, and it's a thriller with dead people and missing people and plot twists.

His Fair Assassin by Robin LaFevers is a phenomenal series! Fantasy and the women are the ones doing the murdering sometimes ;)

I can’t remmeber if I’ve recommended it before but I love these books. I discovered them because the author visited my high school when we were studying Women’s Literature and I’ve been hooked ever since!
