Death Among Rubies by R.J. Koreto. Published by Crooked Lane

Lady Frances Ffolkes is alarmed when she discovers fellow suffragists, Gwen and Tommie have been threatened. Frances travels with her friends to Gwen’s father’s lavish estate, intent on sniffing out the scoundrel bothering her friends. But when Gwen’s father is stabbed to death with a ruby dagger, Lady Frances finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, one with plenty of suspects, including a Turkish diplomat, a couple of meddling widows and an American heiress. I like the fact that Koreto uses period appropriate dialogue in her books and the history of women suffragists is fascinating. Hard to believe women have had the vote for less than 100 years!
