Madensky Square , IBBOTSON, Eva
401 5906 IBBOTSON, Eva Madensky Square
Hardcover St Martin's Press: NY; 1988; First US Edition Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
253 pages; Spine ends bumped, page edges have a few faint smudges. Unclipped dust wrapper is lightly edgeworn. A nice copy. ; "Susanna Weber, the elegant and discreet proprietress of her own dressmaking shop plies her trade on quaint Madensky Square. In the spring of 1911, Vienna is a world of romance, music, and gossip, where charming men pay outrageous compliments at the Opera and ancient noblewomen pay for silk petticoats with antique candlesticks. Susanna, at the hub of it all, ministers to a young ugly duckling desperate to become a modest swan, dresses cranky countesses and competitive social butterflies , and tries to convince her anarchist assistant that to marry the man who loves her - capitalist or no - is no political crime." Highly recommended.; "Madensky Square and Countess Below Stairs are my two favorites" by this author. -Susie W. of the DES email discussion group. "Madensky Square was my favourite" by this author. -Susan D. of the DES email discussion group. Also recommended by several members of the DoveGrey email discussion group.

410 1632 Jameson, Storm Company Parade
Softcover; Mass Market PB Berkley Books: New York; (1934)1976; Very Good  
315 pages; Edgeworn, no spine creases. ; The sixth volume in the Mary Hervey family saga. This is the story of Britain between 1918 and 1923, and of Hervey Russell, caught up in the fervor of London with her husband away in the Air Force and her baby left behind in Yorkshire. In some respects the novel is thinly veiled autobiography, shadowing as it does Jameson's early domestic upheaval and forays into literature. Breaches of loyalty and failed love are recurrent themes. Wonderful supporting characters are drawn, including the sympathetic portraiture of a Jewish press empire, a rare outlook in British literature. The author called this a "good crowded book" and the reader is likely to amend that to an excellent crowded book. ; Mary Hervey Family Saga

Wishing, Jarrett, Miranda
414 381 Jarrett, Miranda Wishing
Softcover; Mass Market PB Sonnet: NY; 1999; Advance Review Copy 354 pages Fine 
Faintest edgewear; looks unread. ; In 1721, Captain Samson Fairbourne is a confirmed bachelor, a deep-water sailor happily wedded to his work. When he pens a description of the perfect, obedient wife, and hefts the missive overboard in a bottle, all he has in mind is a cutting joke to teach his young cousin a lesson on the foolishness of wishes -- and women. Instead, his prank leads him to Polly Bray, a hardworking seafarer who is about to shake his disparaging notions of femininity -- while reeling in his heart.

Left an orphan in a Massachusetts fishing village, Polly dresses in boy's clothes to work aboard her father's fishing boat, the one possession he left her. Pulled under by a devastating storm at sea, she is rescued by Samson Fairbourne, and a sparkling, passionate bond takes hold. But the handsome captain seems determined to confine Polly to his limited view of womanhood. And Polly fears she must surrender her precious independence -- or cut the stubborn, impassioned Samson adrift....; Cover matches sample image.

A nice copy. ; You do not need to read the first Cece Caruso mystery in order to enjoy this second title in the series. A fun mystery, especially for those of us that grew up with Nancy Drew or are members of an author's 'fan group'.; "Besides her beloved collection of vintage designer clothing, there is nothing Cece Caruso cherishes more than her childhood memories of Nancy Drew. Her near obsession with the fictional teenage sleuth led her to become a professional biographer of classic mystery writers. And now that she's working on a book about Nancy's pseudonymous creator, "Carolyn Keene, " Cece's in heaven.

At the L. A. home of another rabid Drew-ophile, Cece finds a treasure trove of useful memorabilia, including one unique and somewhat shocking collectible. Later she finds a dead body -- and a puzzle that would sorely test the skills of her spunky girlhood heroine. Now she'll have to channel her former idol and unmask a murderer, and the killer may be coming for Cece next."
