    • Thank you Carol. Thats lovely of you to say and to let me know. These books represent my own wonderful memories of the ten years I spent in India, so it is so nice to hear from enthusiastic readers. I wish you all the best. Vaseem, LONDON


  1. I’ve just read The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra for my March online ‘Comfort Book Club’ book. Everyone loved it! Wonderful characters and evocative descriptions of Mumbai. I am now going to read all your other books.


    • Dear Karen, that’s so lovely to hear! Your Comfort Book Club sounds wonderful – and what a lovely name for a book club. What could be more comforting than books? If you would ever like me to Zoom call to chat with your book club, let me know. I’d be happy to do so.


      • Hi Vaseem, thanks for your lovely reply. It isn’t actually my book club – The Comfort Book Club is hosted by Miranda Mills on YouTube but I will pass your message on to her.


  2. Please do and say hi to Miranda and the Comfort Book Club members from me! Love that name! Makes me think of being on a sofa with a good book on a cold day with a nice bowl of custard and cake to go with it 🙂
