The book I have is actually a combination of The Voice of the Dolls (published 1950) and Listen to Danger (published 1957). I inherited it in my mother's library and just now have gotten around to reading it. Both of these stories are gothic novels with a touch of the cozy mystery vibe in them. Dorothy Eden was very good at creating lively, likeable characters that carry off her plots of murder and mayhem without a lot of gory, graphic details. The Voice of the Dolls is set in London, where a young woman named Sarah Stacey is hired as governess to look after Jennie Foster, a troubled eight-year-old who lives with her severely dysfunctional family. Sarah quickly finds something is terribly off with her new employer, Oliver Foster. After a suicide and a suspicious accident, Sarah doesn't know who to trust and turns to a mysterious uncle for help. Will Tim be her savior, or is he the one behind all the mayhem? In Listen to Danger, a young widow, Harriet Lacey, is left to support herself and raise her two children, but when the children are kidnapped, she turns to the unlikeliest of heroes, her neighbor Flynn, a blind man who may or may not have been the cause of her late husband's demise. I liked this story the most. I found the plot intricate but believable, and the characters endearing. ( )
