Rose Cottage

I couldn’t help myself! I just had to read another Mary Stewart for my R.I.P.-XIV challenge! I do love Mary Stewart’s books, and Rose Cottage has been on my TBR list for quite awhile, so this weekend I picked it up and read it almost in one sitting.

from the publisher…

Rose Cottage, a tiny thatched dwelling in an idyllic English country setting, would appear the picture of tranquility to any passerby. But when Kate Herrick returns to her childhood home to retrieve some family papers in the summer of 1947, she uncovers a web of intrigue as tangled as the rambling roses in its garden. The papers are missing. The village is alive with gossip. Did her elderly neighbors, suspected of being witches, really see nighttime prowlers and ghosts in the cottage garden?

This was a fun read for my PERIL the FIRST for the R.I.P.-XIV challenge. A very nice read for a rainy weekend.

    I’m trying to remember if I’ve read this Mary Stewart book. Surely I did. Think I read almost all of her books. Glad you enjoyed it! She is the author of some real favorites.

    Robin, I am pleased to hear Rose Cottage was a fun read, as I think I have a copy of it in my Kindle’s to-be-read folder. I was also hoping to read Mary Stewart’s The Moonspinners for the R.I.P. XIV challenge, but haven’t got to it just yet.
