The Henna Artist worth savoring.—Publishers Weekly

Christy Lefteri, award-winning author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo.

"With its beautifully complex cast of characters, THE SECRET KEEPER OF JAIPUR plunges readers back into the sumptuous world of THE HENNA ARTIST, where power, money, and secrets abound — and where carefully cultivated reputations balance on the knife edge of influence
