“A gripping, immersive read, S.C Lalli has written a tightly woven thriller featuring my new favourite complicated female protagonist. Sara – Saraswati Bhaduri – is riveting as a struggling, savvy law student who becomes embroiled in a gritty murder mystery, while also tackling issues of race, class and identity at her Ivy-league college. I couldn’t put this book down, and neither will you!” — Uzma Jalaluddin, bestselling author of Hana Khan Carries On

“Dynamic women with complicated lives take center stage in this twisty mystery about a rideshare mix-up which results in murder. Lalli is a fresh voice in the thriller genre and a writer to watch!” — Wendy Walker, internationally bestselling author of Don’t Look For Me

Are You Sara? is a crackling spit-fire of suspense. I read it in two sittings! And that delicious little twist at the very end is a brilliant depiction of just how cunning women can be.” — Wanda M. Morris, acclaimed author of All Her Little Secrets

“Romance author Lalli (A Holly Jolly Diwali as Sonya Lalli) ventures into thriller territory with exhilarating results… The twisty plot upsets conventional expectations while shining a light on casual sexism and racism. Readers will hope to see a lot more in this line from the versatile Lalli.” — Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review
