Though I abysmally prefer Metz as her A.K. "Elisabeth Peters" and her Peabody Novels there is quite good reading and light relief in her gothic suspense novels as well.One of her better books in this capacity is "Be Buried In the Rain".If you like your reading as girl comes to mysterious old house, meets former love and new trials, with an ending both super-natural and natural,this is what you get.Written by a prolific author who can take the old cliches and give them one more twist, most competently.Though lacking the depth as her "Peters" writing Barbara Michaels most often deliver good value for your money. As said above, do you like the genre,this is one of the best craftswomen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crumbling Plantation house dripping with vines, ghosts..... 4 Mar 2001
By A. Y. Smittle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I went looking for what Barbara Michaels has to offer: I wanted a modern "gothic" romance. I wanted a a creepy old house on a vast old Virginia plantation, dripping with creeper and ivy, with crumbling foundations and spooky attics. Something like an adult Nancy Drew. (I beg your pardon!) Ms Michaels always manages to set the perfect stage; regardless that the story flows excellent, the dialogues are excellent, too excellent. Ok, yeah, she misses the last star because the story wasn't the best---but atmosphere, my dear, is everything! I'll bet is was a joy to write this story and what a joy it was to read it. If you are looking for a book that has a little of everything....suspense, mystery, romance, etc. This is it. Graveyards, archaeology, family secrets....read on! Don't forget to check out her other stuff to! All in the same sort of line. The "feminist" heroine, the Mr. Rochester-type hero, the spooky background...ahhhh, the spooky background....

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Michaels writes another intriguing book. 25 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book doesn't just smack you in the face with realizations. It let's the answers come to you slowly. The characters seep into your subconcious. As a writer Barbara Michaels has surpassed herself again and again. I highly recommend all of her books. Also check out her books she's writes as Elizabeth Peters. They are well worth the read

5.0 out of 5 stars Michaels at her best! 1 Sep 2001
By Tamara Blackwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite Michaels' book. The creepy old house, the mystery surrounding the old woman and her maliciousness, the ruined love affair rekindled, and the archaeological dig combine to make a great story. A reader who reviewed this book was disappointed that the ending was left up in the air; it was the perfect ending in my opinion - it literally sent chills down my spine!

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming from beginning to end. 10 Mar 1999
By Lugg2@Juno.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Has all the best elements of a good ghost story with enough modern skepticism to keep us enthralled. Michaels is master of the modern gothic.

I cannot put her books down! I finish one and order 3 more. Her finess at suspense with a touch of supernatural is God given. May she never stop.
