A book of short stories featuring the sleuth adventures of Jaya Jones

The Cambodian Curse and Other Stories: A Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Collection

By: Gigi Pandian

Rating: 5 of 5

I’m a fan of the Jaya Jones mystery series. It is like Indian Jones and Amelia Peabody rolled into one and set in a current day setting with a feisty sleuth.

Jaya is a professor who seems to like to venture outside of the classroom to solve mysteries (Jones and Peabody in one!) She always seems to be put into the heart of the action whether she wants it or not (but she usually is happy to be right in the midst of it.)

In this book, we are given nine short stories which feature Ms. Jones. She is given a series of “unsolvable” mysteries and guess what? Does she solve them? Well, you’ll have to read the book for yourself.

While I love to get lost in one of the full novels by Gigi Pandian, it is fun to have this series of stories to read when I have only a little time. It is the same group of characters and the stories and fun. You don’t have to read the series to enjoy the stories but having the background makes them that much more fun.

I’m looking forward to reading another full novel in the Jaya Jones series – hopefully this coming year!

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Edelweiss.
