Product Description

About the Author

Ann Bridge (1889-1974), or Lady Mary Dolling (Sanders) O'Malley was born in Hertfordshire. Bridge's novels concern her experiences of the British Foreign Office community in Peking in China, where she lived for two years with her diplomat husband. Her novels combine courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire. Bridge went on to write novels around a serious investigation of modern historical developments. In the 1970s Bridge began to write thrillers centered on a female amateur detective, Julia Probyn, as well writing travel books and family memoirs. Her books were praised for their faithful representation of foreign countries which was down to personal experience and thorough research.

Quite a well crafted mystery but falls down by being crossed with a guide to flowers, the details of too many Alpines distracts the reader.

A good enough read if nothing else is available but it is a bit dated and somewhat like an adult "famous five"

As with all of Ann Bridge's books the local description is evocative. It is a novel of its time with a zany heroine, a handsome hero and a wise older lady. As a pleasant beach read, I recommend it.

I have not yet finished this book. Although the storyline is good and I can relate to many of the locations in Switzerland along the journey, I am finding the pace of the plot a little slow to reach its conclusion.

Enjoying this series 4 Jun. 2013
By aguipa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been enjoying this series but, as mentioned in one review, I couldn't find a list of the order these books were written. Well I have, at last, found a publication date list. I will leave the commentary to the other reviewers.

Julia Probyn mystery Series

The Lighthearted Quest (1956)
The Portuguese Escape (1958)
The Numbered Account (1960)
The Dangerous Islands (1963)
Emergency in the Pyrenees (1965)
The Episode at Toledo (1966)
The Malady in Madeira (1970)
Julia in Ireland (1973)

I hope you enjoy them as much as I am.

A Great Period Piece 22 Jun. 2013
By Susan Bonello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I intend buying every Ann Bridge book available on Amazon. She writes beautifully in books set in Scotland, the U.K., Europe & North Africa. Her heroine, Julia Probyn is delightful. If you enjoy Helen MacInnes & Mary Stewart you will love this author.

I just found a great new author 17 Mar. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am always looking for new authors because I like to read everything that is written by the same person, if I like them. Ann Bridge is one I hadn't read before, even though she is an older author (wrote her books in the early 1950's). If you like well-writeen travel descriptions of foriegn places with a good mystery, these are nice. The kind of book to read on a summer's day, relaxing! They are sort of written in a series, but I haven't found a list showing the order yet. Still great reads, whether you read them in sequence or not. I also don't know what the "Bloomsbury Readers" are, but this author's books are listed as such.
