The Stormy Petrel

The Stormy Petrel - Mary Stewart 3.5 stars. I liked the setting very much -- a small Scottish island. I liked the heroine and was easily drawn into the story. The ending was a little anticlimatic, but it was a quick, enjoyable read. I certainly did not expect the outcome with Bagshaw -- not sure if those actions were in character, but it certainly made him more likeable. I'll have to try some other Stewart mysteries when I need a quick read/lift -- if they are like this one or better.
