Review:

You know those little piles of books that have been laying around just waiting for you to be in the mood to pick them up? Well, I did a little scavenging in my home and came up with The Mistress of Mellyn by Victoria Holt, first published in 1960It is a gem of an historical romance where you find yourself rooting for the charming governess who's been charged with the upbringing of the willful, motherless Alvean in a sprawling mansion towering above the misty cliffs of CornwallThe perfect recipe for romantic suspense: a leading man with a cool and arrogant demeanor who unleashes unfamiliar sensations and turmoil in a spinster governess with host of past tragedies and current dangers to faceAdd a pinch of supernatural and a host of endearing characters and you have a gem of a lighthearted read.
