Angie (sparkingjoyinreading) | 7 comments I'm trying to find the title of a Joan Aiken romance/romantic suspense novel. I read it in either the late 80s or early 90s, but it was probably published in the 60s or 70s. In it, the main female lead dies at the very end of the book from a heart condition- she's friends with people in a nursing home. The death comes out of left field. Any ideas as to what the title is?

Angie, can you tell us more about the heroine - job, age, family, memorable traits, etc.?

What's the location?

Angie (sparkingjoyinreading) | 7 comments It takes place in England and it was a contemporary story- so probably takes place in the 70s. The male lead was older and decided at the end to be with the female lead, only to find out she died. I know there was a nursing home somewhere in there, but that's all I can remember.

You're welcome. I thought it was most likely one of the books on this list.
