    I used to love the Mary Stewart books.

    Yes, I read quite a few of them when I was younger, Cilla. I think I used to get them from a book club.

    Shirley Jackson and Agatha Christie are 2 of my favourites. SJ’s novels veer between unsettling and downright creepy and her life is worth reading about too. Agatha Christie can’t be beat :-)

    Jane – ‘We Have Always Lived In the Castle’, ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ and ‘The Lottery’ by SJ are especially good. She is sometimes lumped in with the ‘southern gothic’ genre which I am a bit obsessed with at the moment :cowboy:

    Oh, Jane, meant to say, if you like AC you may enjoy ‘A Talent for Murder’ by Andrew Wilson or ‘The Mitford Murders’ by Jessica Fellowes :-)
