    One thought on “Spindrift”

    1. I remember reading Phyllis Whitney mysteries in high school. I thought they were awesome. Perhaps I will go to the library and reread some of her stuff soon

    2. Cuando estaba en la secundaria, había una librería de usados cerca de mi casa que vendía libros baratísimos y además te regalaba con la compra unos señaladores de cartón con frases geniales (*).Este libro me lo compró mi mamá en esa librería sabiendo que yo compraba casi todas las semanas, pensando que me iba a gustar. La verdad, es una novelita sentimentaloide de poco vuelo, para nada lo que suelo leer. Al menos sirvió para despejar la cabeza en época de exámenes, a la manera de la [...]

    3. When I first gave this four stars, I think I was applying a liberal nostalgia filter. Figure I haven't read this since middle school.But the story? Eh, I found myself rooting for the house burning down about a third of the way through. The main character mainly moves the action forward by annoying other people into doing stuff. Near as I can tell, she moved the timetable up by irritating other people into action but other than that didn't affect how things would've turned out.And she's, well, co [...]

    4. The characters unfolded themselves slowly. Some suspicions I had were true and some weren't. It kept me guessing until the end. The main character was at times pitiable, powerful, annoying, and lovable. I am amazed that Ms. Whitney was able to fit it all in the book.

    5. I give up. After plodding along, and I mean literally plodding, I am going to put this on on the did not finish pile. The story moved beyond slow and all the characters were unlikeable in their own nasty way, whether it be indifferent, domineering, standoffish or whatever. And I didn't even get a good sense of place with this story. I had high hopes but this book let me down.

    6. Read all of her books in High School and still remember them all. Think this is why I love mysteries along with all of Nancy Drew's books.

    7. In Spindrift, the heroine (Christy) is married, with a child. She has become estranged from her husband following her father's suspicious death, and after spending some amount of time in a psychiatric hospital, she's finally returned to her old life with the goal of solving her father's murder and spending more time with her son.I can't stand kids, so son Peter just irritated me. I think he was necessary to keep Christy trapped in this house with so many awful people. Lots of intrigue and conspi [...]

    8. Christy Moreland has never believed that her father committed suicide and further she was certain that he was murdered. She was also fairly certain her rich and powerful mother-in-law knew something about it.Now she is invited back to the old mansion in Newport and is determined to find out the truth. Will she maintain her sanity in the search of the truth?This was a slow and plodding mystery

    9. A not very well written light read that works well if you have a cold and need something to read while you are wrapped up in blankets and drinking cups of hot tea! It was obvious who the bad guy was but it has been eons since junior high and a book like this would have been "exciting"! Short and quick!

    10. Maybe this is not one of her best works. I found it boring, it did not hold my interest. I will read more of her work because I do remember reading Phyllis Whitney in High School eons ago and really enjoying her stories.

    11. I have a feeling I might not enjoy her books so much now, but these were a lot of fun in junior high. I still get a twinge of nostalgia when I see one of her titles at a thrift store or garage sale.

    12. Enjoyed this suspenseful mystery about the mansion of a Press Empire, The Morelands, the people in the family and those close to them. Surprise ending. Very well done.

    13. Fun to read, to a point - I knew the guilty party long before the dramatic end of the book. I read it only because here it was sitting in my house - as a discard from the library. Time could have been better spent.

    14. Reading Spindrift reminded me of my afternoons in high school watching All My Children. Such wild drama and absurd plots!And yet, for what it is, a modern Gothic, it works. Whitney does know how to spin a tale of romance and intrigue.

    15. I absolutely love gothic romances with all of the mystery and the strong female characters. Phyllis A. Whitney is an amazing author incorporating an unforgettable story with amazing characters.
