A good friend has a juicy, layered 1920s mystery MS and I realized how hard it is to find amazing prohibition-era mysteries that aren't lighthearted sleuthing or cozy mysteries. I'd love your recs (and as always this is a #MSWL !)

The descent of a character going from a naive cinnamon roll into a ruthless and calculating villain is a particularly exquisite pain that I'm a total masochist for. *Cue ugly sobbing* #mswl

#mswl Send me cute books! Thrilling books! Wholesome books! Devastatingly clever books! Books that feel like warm blankets! Books that feel like taking a walk on a cool night when you can smell roses see stars!

#mswl I go crazy for "surprising yet inevitable" moments in books. And if you can sprinkle *several* of these twists throughout your manuscript, I'll probably be smitten.

#mswl I adore close, soulmate-style friendships in stories, but I also love stories about having the courage to distance yourself from unhealthy friendships. I welcome stories with best friend breakups.

#mswl I’d love to see chapter books and MG and YA stories with humor that works on multiple levels -- funny for young readers and funny in a more nuanced or ironic way when they reread it years later.

“High stakes heists, with interesting complicated criminals and the heat of the chase – thrill me! Something like the adult version of DEATH PREFERS BLONDES.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL
