"I don't know what book to write about." I said in despair.
"How about 'Nine Coaches Waiting' by Mary Stewart?" she chimed.
"What's that about?"
"It's about this girl who goes to be Governess of a wealthy French family. The parents are dead so the uncle takes care of the boy, who's heir to a huge estate. So then things start happening to the little boy and it becomes clear someone's trying to off him."
I wrinkled my nose.
"It's a love story." She reassured me.
"Set in what time period?"
"The right one."
"Like old, with fun dresses?" I prodded.
She rolled her eyes. "Yes."
So that's what I'm going to read next.
Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart.
Here's the official review:
The opulence and history surrounding Linda Martin at ChateÂu Valmy are all part of some wondrous, ecstatic dream. But there is a palpable terror crouching in the shadows. And then an accident that is no accident nearly kills the young English nanny's innocent, nine-year-old charge.I'm still a little wary. I just finished a book called Flint by Paul Eddy and I was less than pleased so my patience with murder mysteries is running thin.
This is not "chance" -- this is something planned...and deadly.-Publisher's Review
However, this particular friend of mine gives good book recommendations so I can't really argue with her. Have you read it? What did you think?
