It’s been a week of governesses and companions for me, mostly re-reads.
— Elsie Lee, Silence Is Golden.
One of only three Elsie Lee historicals (she’s better known for her 1960s and 70s romantic suspense), this one is her Victorian orphan book. It has all the classic hallmarks of the Gothic– orphaned companion, large house, sinister overtones, handsome and brooding master.
— Mary Stewart, Nine Coaches Waiting.
What can one say about Nine Coaches Waiting? It is always that good.
— Sherry Thomas, Tempting the Bride.
I’ve only just started this one– the sequel to Ravishing the Heiress— so more on this one next week.
