Book Excerpt: 
. . .Aggie.

"Beautiful!" His tone was ardent enough to please even Aggie.

He sat without speaking for a time, and none of us liked to interrupt him. Outside it had stopped raining, and the moon was coming up over the Camel's Back. We could hear Modestine stirring in the thicket and a watery ray of moonlight came into the cave and threw our shadows against the wall.

"If only," said Sheriff Muldoon thoughtfully—"If47 only I could get my hands on that chap with the red beard!"

We all went to bed soon after. Aggie, as usual, went to sleep at once, and soon, from, behind the kimono screen across the cave, loud noises told us that Mr. Muldoon also slept. It was then that Tish crept over and put her mouth to my ear.

"That may be Muldoon all right," she whispered. "But if it is he's got a wife and two children. Mrs. Muldoon is related to Hannah."48

Simple but amusing adventures of three spinsters.

Tish is a crazy 50-year-old with a penchant for leading her two friends into improbable and amusing adventures involving borderline judgment and the inadvertent kidnapping of various officials with a view to furthering various good causes, such as romance or justice or Art. Everything always ends...more

Very funny book, sort of the adult version of Amelia Bedelia. Tish (Letitia) is someone who sees what she wants and goes after it, with sometimes hilarious results.

The author, Mary Roberts Rinehart is better known for her work in the HIBK sub-genre in mysteries. (Had-I-But-Known), but her humor...more

I came across this while browsing in the Kindle bookstore. I always think of Mary Roberts Rhinehart as a mystery writer but this isn't a mystery. Tish is a middle-aged spinster with a talent for getting herself into escapades. Her loyal friends Aggie and Lizzie, also middle-aged spinsters, can't...more

Reading the Tish stories is feeding my growing conviction that Rinehart is one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. While the stories aren’t strictly mysteries, Tish is clearly the progenitor of such characters as Miss Marple and Aunt Dimity. The plots are early examples of the sc...more

I enjoy MR Rinehart's mystery/suspense books, so I was curious to see what she'd do with humor. Letitia Carberry drags her two (often protesting) gal pals from mountain hide-outs to WWI trenches in (misguided) efforts to do good, and madcap adventures ensue. Tish is something of a literary precur...more

I find it completely believable that Tish, Lizzie, and Aggie could have re-captured a small French village during World War I. She is my hero!

A fun and improbable read from one of my favorite authors.
