Pocketful of Rubies introduces the Good Offices team, a group of friends who band together to help victims of violence. In the village of Moonshire, at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, murder is unusual enough to come as a shock. In this unabashedly cozy story, plot intricacies take second place to human relationships.
Pocketful of Rubies features Luna Montejro, a Brazilian-American journalist of Sephardic descent. She joins the Good Offices after terrorists kill her estranged husband in Baghdad. Initially, she edits the organization’s electronic magazine, but when a local heiress dies under suspicious circumstances during a spa party, Luna hastens to put into practice the motto of the Good Offices, “Justice you shall pursue.”
