From Kirkus ReviewsThe recent death of Eleanor Hibbert, the indefatigable, reliable popular writer who appeared as Jean Plaidy, Philippa Carr and Victoria Holt, has saddened her large following. Hibbert through the years perfected cherished formulas for romantic suspense, real or fictional dynastic dooms and delights (in palaces or English manor houses), and period galloping adventures. Here, in the first Holt novel to be published posthumously, an orphan lass finds love on two continents and helps to solve an old murder. Carmel March had been found as an infant under an azalea bush, and thanks to kind Dr. Marline--­the ailing Mrs. Marline is horrid- -­Carmel is raised with the Marline children, although she's still regarded as an outsider. Still, Carmel finds people to love. There's the boy Lucian of a titled family nearby; a lovely governess destined for tragedy; some pleasant gypsies, one of whom takes an unusual interest in Carmel; and Mrs. Marline's sea captain brother, Uncle . . .

Book Three in the Amulets series but may be read as a standalone story.

Sabina Comte has two passions — singing and Adam Morelly. One has brought her fame and fortune. The other just might get her killed. Sabina possesses a power amulet given to her by the gods. Megalomaniac Victoria Price not only wants the amulet, she wants Adam as well. Killing Sabina would give her both.

If dealing with Victoria isn't enough, Sabina discovers Adam's uncle belongs to the mafia. She becomes increasingly suspicious of Adam when he keeps showing up right after someone's tried to kill her. Sabina begins to wonder if Adam and his uncle know about her amulet and are after it too. But even doubt and suspicion cannot alter the growing attraction she has for Adam. When he is badly injured, Sabina puts her heart on the line and races to his side, determined to save him. She is about to find out if love will send her careening toward the celestial heavens or plant her six feet under.

Black Opal is an approximately 130 page novella.

“I knowed you'd be coming.­” The voice came from next to my arm, male but high and reedy. “You here to make things right, ain't you?­”

Not according to Peri Jean Mace. She might communicate with ghosts, but right now she’s on a mission to catch her two-­timing boyfriend with his pants down.

Instead, she's drawn into a decades-­old murder mystery, in a house full of strangers. To top it off, her boyfriend's mother gifts Peri Jean with a spectacular gemstone that enhances Peri Jean's own supernatural abilities.
