In the entire canon of tough-girl sleuths, gumshoes, PIs, detectives, and investigators, there's no one quite like Fritillary Quilter. A New York arson investigator, a sassy, fresh spirit with a nose for arson and an eye for dubious burn patterns, "Tilly" pushes the envelope of the traditional female investigator with a young, hip outlook and indefatigable zeal. Weeping is an arson investigator's term and also the usual state that befalls a fire's grief-stricken survivors. So it's with some surprise and suspicion that Tilly meets the seemingly unconcerned Faith Browning, whose sister Dorsey has just burned to death in their family home. When Faith puts in a quick claim without giving the insurance company a chance to look around, the company calls Tilly. Tilly teams up with the arson pro Isaak "Ike" Blessing, and together they must sift through the ashes to find the truth. Written by a real-life private eye and fire investigator, Weeping is fueled by technical authority, lively characters, and stylish prose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anna Fields.

What would a Tilly and Elmer Christmas be without a minor mix-up in communication? Tilly only has one item on her wish list, but letting Elmer know what it is without just telling him is, as usual, a difficult challenge. Hints only go so far, although Tilly doesn’t think even Elmer can miss this one. And Elmer is certain he is on the same page as Tilly. Of course, that’s what he thinks every year. 1.

When Sophie is suddenly orphaned at the age of six, she is taken from her parents' tea plantation, the only home she has ever known, to be raised halfway across the world in Scotland. As the years pass and her exotic childhood becomes a distant memory, adventurous Sophie finds refuge in her friendship with her kind, shy cousin, Tilly. It is no surprise when the girls follow each other to India to embark on new adventures, new lives and new loves. But the reality of 1920s India is far removed from their dream: the jungles are too humid and the breathtaking tea gardens too remote. And amongst the stifling beauty, intrigue abounds; while Sophie struggles with affairs of the heart, Tilly, alone in a difficult world, delves into the mystery of Sophie's parents' deaths. As the past begins to darken their friendship, will long-held secrets shatter everything they've ever striven for? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Coomes.
