    1 thought on “Waiting For Willa”

    1. This book is comparable to an early afternoon Lifetime channel mystery. It is 1969 and we have a rather brassy, loose young woman named Willa who goes missing, leaving a string of male acquaintances behind supposedly scratching their heads. Willa's cousin Grace senses something amiss and arrives in Sweden to unravel the clues and keep herself out of danger.It's ok. A quick, cozy sort of mystery if it wasn't also a bit sordid. Not a keeper for meNTENT:Sex: one scene fade to black, talk of infidel [...]

    2. Grace’s drab life gets a jolt of excitement when she flies off to Sweden after getting a cryptic message from her cousin Willa --signed Wilhelmina (for distress.) But Willa’s disappeared leaving behind some bitter, annoyed and suspicious acquaintances, not to mention some odd clues -- barbaric fairy tales she told her bosses children and a cryptic diary written in code. Is Willa caught up in a desperate situation and on the run or has she been kidnaped? Wonderful quick paced mystery with lot [...]

    3. Just finished reading this for the second time. It had been so long since I first read it that I couldn't recall the ending. What a wonderful mystery, set in a gloomy, cold, dark forest in Sweden for the most part. Grace's cousin Willa has disappeared and Grace, an English novelist, takes off for Sweden to find her. This book captured my attention and I couldn't put it down. What a page turner! I felt like I was there in Sweden with Grace and her professor friend Polsen. I can't say enough good [...]

    4. Waiting for Willa by Dorothy Eden was originally published in 1970. Recently, Open Road Media has begun releasing some of Dorothy's backlist in e book format. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Grace receives an unsettling letter from her cousin Willa. Grace and Willa are more like sisters than cousins, although they have entirely different personalities. Willa has been living in Sweden. She gives Grace the code in her letter that ind [...]

    5. A brisk little suspense novel about Grace, a young British novelist who answers a distress letter from her cousin Willa, who has been working as a secretary at the British embassy in Stockholm. Intense and private, Grace is the opposite of her cousin, whose fondness for drama, extravagant living--and men--seems to have caused ripples in a tiny circle of neighbors, colleagues and friendsd perhaps is why she has vanished. The reader follows Grace into the nooks and crannies of Willa's life and thr [...]

    6. I was rather disappointed with this book. Had I gone into it intending to read a mystery alone, it may not have been so. However I read it hoping for a good old Gothic romance but the romantic interest was thoroughly unappealing.And truth be told even the mystery aspect had over stayed its welcome quite a few chapters before the book's actual end.

    7. What's going on with Willa? What's happened to her, where is she, is she okay? Her cousin Grace is left with a cast of potential suspects and clues galore. It's a fairly quick and easy read, no blood and guts, no descriptions of violence - just a mystery to solve.

    8. An interesting book if you like figuring clues for a mysterywhich I do. The setting and tone reminded me of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but the characters are not nearly as interesting, and it is not nearly as well- written.

    9. “Waiting For Willa” sounded like a gothic adventure. It wasn’t but I love variation. I revel in it, when authors veer from the expected. Stories should be appraised for what they are. The story I found within was not a U-turn but a whole other genre. It was a dark journey, which is something I can enjoy too but all the way to the conclusion; this was grim and dour and not at all an outcome I consider rewarding. I am stunned by it, unfortunately not in a pleased way.I certainly commend the [...]

    10. It's been many years since I first read this book but I had never forgotten the overall atmosphere of the cold, the rain dripping on the roof, the wolves of the wind. I quite enjoyed this second reading as much as the first.

    11. During my early 20s, when I was really hooked on gothics, Dorothy Eden's books stood out as remarkably readable. I can't COUNT the number of times I've read this one, even though I know the outcome -- it's just told so well, the characters still keep me guessing and the atmosphere, the forests and city of Stockholm in 1969, surprisingly still spooks me. (Definition of foreboding: see this novel.) If you're looking for coffee beans to neutralize your nose in-between test sniffs at the perfume cou [...]

    12. When novelist Grace Asherton receives an SOS from her cousin Willa she flies to Sweden to help her. The cousin's have always been close even though they are the direct opposite in temperament and outlook. When Grace arrives in Sweden Willa is nowhere to be found and no one seems concerned for her welfare.This is a tautly written cozy suspense. There aren't an overabundance of characters and the author does a fine job of keeping the tension going. The dark Swedish winter provides a gloomy backdro [...]

    13. Another "old love" this one. The combination of a mystery with an amateur sleuthe and a romantic interest in fact eventually became my style as well. I loved the atmosphere created here, a mini-travelogue of Sweden. And trying to figure out which of the men in the life of Willa, who has gone missing, is the mysterious lover she refers to as Gustav in her diary is a worthy puzzle. This is the kind of book I would want to read on a dark winter night by the fire.

    14. This was a quick and enjoyable read about a missing cousin who obviously was swept into a dangerous love triangle. Lots of Swedish detail and a little bit of romance and a whole lot of mystery in this Gothic romance!Definitely not one of Edens stronger works, as it doesn't pack as much punch as some of her other works.Read a full review on my blog: gothicromancereviews

    15. I really enjoyed this 1970's paperback thriller, maybe partly because it takes place in Stockholm and the surroundings. I'd never even heard of Dorothy Eden before but I'm sure I'll be reading more books by her!

    16. I have read most of Dorothy Eden's novels. Waiting for Willa is one of my favorites. I took the day off to read the book and quickly read it from start to finish. I didn't even want to get away from the book to eat a meal.

    17. This book makes a good quick read. Every step of the plot is unforeseeable and keeps you guessing till the end.
