Rococo romance and mystery Great descriptions of exotic locales a bit dated and very English.Fun I enjoyed all Mary Stewart s early books, and some of her historical books She had a deceptively simple style that pulled you in and allowed her to work quite effectively on your emotions, while being light and literate and entertaining My favourite of all her books was always Madam Will You TalkIt was probably the first one I read and I loved the lazy sidekick and the small boy like her heroines I ve always had a soft spot for small boys and the car chase But all the books in this edition are good, as I recall, and I plan to revisit them this summer.

Such a fun anthology Mary Stewart s novels are among my favorite books, ones I pick up and read over and over Her stories are full of adventures happening to ordinary people and I can say to myself, that could happen to me and, of course, I would prevail by the strength of my wits from the safety of my comfy chair And, a little romance never hurt a good story i only read the moonspinners too busy to read all 4 books right now good but wayy different than the movie Yup I m going to read them all again start to finish Ahhh summer Buddy Read of Madam, Will You Talk with Diane Lynn Hj 3.5All the elements of a good Mary Stewart novel are here A strong female lead in Charity SelborneA child in danger in David ShelleyA man who may or may not be a villain and murderer in Richard ShelleyThrow in some Insta love and stir well We also get a potential wicked step mother, view spoiler and I could tell from the very first pages something was off about her Then when it was revealed she d lied about Richard dying to David I realized what a monster she was hide spoiler Having previously read The Ivy Tree, I wanted to read Mary Stewart This book combines four into one and seems like a lot of Mary Stewart at once Of the four, Nine Coaches Waiting is my favorite, Followed by The Ivy Tree, Madam, Will You Talk and then, finally, The Moonspinners All are tales of suspense, with very romantic undertones and an old fashioned quality that I rather liked They are set in the 50s 60s so one has to accustom oneself to the lack of modern technology and references to womens wardrobes such as petticoats But after settling in with these, I quickly adjusted and was whisked away into some very unique European vistas Nine Coaches Waiting and Madam, Will You Talk in particular, feature some very thrilling scenes that I can very well imagine would make excellent Hitchcockian type movies The stories are admittedly improbably but provide a very nice escape Madam, Will You talk, which is set in France, has marvelous descriptions of food Mary Stewart s writing style is so descriptive that you are immediately transported to her thrilling scenes I did find Moonspinners to be rather dull, but I think it was mostly because I had a hard time visualizing Crete and it seemed overall unappealing to me So happy I ve read these all I am a bonafide Mary Stewart fan
