Pauline | 1 comments Hello Marie I don't use Facebook or any other social media platforms anymore, just Goodreads , which I consider to be the best for an avid reader. Having said that, I miss our Jean Plaidy group on Facebook, especially the different posts with book reviews.

Lisa | 3 comments Not sure if this group is still active, but I just started Goodreads. As a teenager, I read many Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy books and am planning to revisit them in the coming years. Would love to connect with others who appreciate the same author!

Anna Getz (goodreadscommys52fan) | 3 comments I read all of Victoria Holt books back in the 70s and 80s. She was my favorite Gothic writer. I was thinking about reading some of them again. I used to have almost all of her books, but with moving through the years, lost some. I still have many left yet.

Lisa | 3 comments Nice that you have some of the books still. I only read what was in our local library - harder to find these days! ;)

Anna Getz (goodreadscommys52fan) | 3 comments They are hard to find. Once in a great while in a used book sale. The first ones I ever read were Mistress of Mellyn and Kirkland Revels as Victoria Holt.

April (aapjebaabje) | 1 comments I read almost all of the Jean Plaidy books and recently read her Mary Queen of Scots books for a comparison project between her and Phillipa Gregory i.e. writers of historical fiction old and new. An interesting exercise for sure.

Lisa | 3 comments April, that does sound interesting! I read almost all of the Victoria Holt books, and a few Jean Plaidy . . . but am now curious about her other author name books, so may have to search for a few to read.

Sallie Brown | 1 comments I’ve read them all. It is difficult to find a writer that gives you that, mystery, clean romance and great story. I’ve found Mary Kingswood is very good. She has a series out now called the Stranger Series that I’m enjoying. It is set in a small village of Maeswood and different characters keep coming into the village, hence the “stranger” theme. The first is the “Stranger in the Dower House”. I might give them a try. Happy reading!
