Sujata Massey’s mystery Shimura Trouble (Severn House) is my Featured “Book of Color” Pick of the Day. This tenth book in Massey’s Rei Shimura series gives you a glimpse into Japanese culture, keeping you intrigued as the story unfolds.
Antiques dealer and undercover spy Rei Shimura is expecting some peace and quiet when she goes to Hawaii with her ailing father for a family reunion. She is quickly drawn into a web of chaos and mayhem involving some distant relatives, who enlist Rei’s help in resolving a property dispute dating back to World War II.
I chose this book because of its excellent reviews and intriguing plot. We need more voices that give us entry into worlds we otherwise would have no knowledge of.
