Mary Stewart reading marathon. I read about her on someone's blog a few months ago (I'm sorry I can't remember who) and now I'm up to my 5th book! Has anyone heard of her? She was born in 1916 and is apparently the 'mother' of romantic suspense. So as you would expect, the stories have both mystery, yes usually someone has been murdered and there is always a fabulous romance and they are always set somewhere gorgeous and exotic. Yes, it's probably not high literature, but they sure are good reads and after the story ends I'm always dying to know what happens next to the characters...oh yes, they have (well in the four that I've read) a happy ending so no doubt they all live happily ever after. Yay to that. Sometimes in life a happy ending is what we need They are the perfect, by the pool, holiday book. Unfortunately I'm neither by the pool or on holidays..and am reading them late to get to sleep after some late night sewing. I believe all her books are still in print. Read all about her and the books here.
These are the covers of the books that I've read so far. I'm reading My Brother Michael now. Yes, these covers look somewhat dated don't they!? Don't be put off.
