THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: “A “
My choice for this weeks A-Z is Ashes to Ashes by Lillian Stewart Carl. If you have not read any of her books, you are missing out. They are excellent!
From Lillian Stewart Carl’s website
“Historian Rebecca Reid comes from Missouri to a replica of a Scottish castle located outside a small town in Ohio. She’s cataloging a collection of historical artifacts, among them, supposedly, a scandalous letter written by Mary, Queen of Scots. But her co-worker, Scottish historian Michael Campbell, has his own plans. And the ghosts of the past, not to mention a very contemporary antagonist, want them both gone.”
Here are some reviews!!
“Gothic fans will be overjoyed…all the trappings of that subgenre are present–the brooding men, sinister servants, and a mysterious mansion–but the setting is decidedly modern…will make the reader glad that the author is planning a sequel.” –Toby Bromberg, Rave Reviews
“There are ghoulies and ghosties (honest) and long leggety beasties (a wonderful cat) and a myriad of things that go bump in the night…a host of suspects to sift through…not your common romance, but then, who said romance should ever be common?” –CC, Heartland Critiques
“About the author:
Her novels have been compared to the classic works of Daphne du Maurier, Mary Renault, Mary Stewart (no relation), Barbara Michaels/ Elizabeth Peters, and Tolkien’s colleague, Charles Williams–except Lillian’s novels take place squarely in the twenty-first century…
…where the past lingers on into the present, especially in the British Isles, Lillian’s home away from home.”
