What with the sultry summer heat, I’ve been on a huge Gothic/romantic suspense kick. So here’s this week’s “If You Like”.
If you like Mary Stewart, you’ll probably also like….
— M.M. Kaye’s Death In series, in particular Death in the Andamans and Death in Kashmir;
— Susanna Kearsley’s The Shadowy Horses or Season of Storms;
— Emma Cole’s Every Secret Thing;
— Pretty much anything by Elsie Lee, but particularly Mansion of the Golden Windows, Dark Moon Lost Lady, Satan’s Coast, and The Spy at the Villa Miranda;
— Barbara Michaels’ Houses of Stone (contemporary) or Sons of the Wolf (historical);
— Victoria Holt’s Bride of Pendorric.
Any other ideas? I’m always looking for successors to Nine Coaches Waiting….
