Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

The Matchmaking Menace
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Bookstorm: Ladies' Mystery/Thriller
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!
