Strangers in Company by Jane Aiken Hodge. Published by Bloomsbury

First published in 1973, this book was a trip down memory lane. Marian has been rejected by her sons who have chosen to live in the United States with their father, leaving her alone and on the point of bankruptcy. She finds a job caring for a woman who needs a helper to accompany her to Greece. It’s a life saver for Marion and the two set off on a package tour of the cradle of civilization. But strange things begin to happen to members of their tour, accidents it seems, but are they really? Everyone is suspicious of each other, no one knows who to trust. Even the classics professor on the tour who seems to be sweet on Marion is not to be trusted. My mom’s book shelf was full of romantic suspense like this and others by Mary Stewart and Phyllis Whitney. While my friends were reading Nancy Drew I was wrapped up in Victoria Holt and company. Thanks for the memories
