CHARACTERS The Gift Shop CHARACTERS Í The Gift Shop Charlotte Armstrong Ä 0 CHARACTERS She was just a girl who was working in the airport gift shop for the summer But when a fatally wounded private eye staggers off a plane gasps out a message and collapses in front of the souvenirs. Four stars because it s very nice within its genre it s not a terribly ambitious genre so if I had to rate it within books in general it d probably get fewerAlthough the cover and blurbage are all about what a thriller it is for me it s really a cute smile inducing romance built on a set of feel good characters with oh yeah some crime and murders and mysteries and stuff as the framework to support them all There are clues and bad guys and races to see who will get to the next important place first and all like that but for me mostly there are Harry and Jean obviously and cutely falling in love and for good measure Calli and Rex and the mob of children being this wonderful idea hippie family in a ramshackle house making me smileDefinitely a well done and fun airplane read I know because I read it on an airplane

CHARACTERS The Gift Shop CHARACTERS Í The Gift Shop Charlotte Armstrong Ä 0 CHARACTERS An international chase as they try to stay one step ahead of the killers She’s within a hairsbreadth of unraveling the mystery if only she can do it without giving away the secret to her enemie. Humorous noir thriller published in 1966 This book screamed for Doris Day and Rock Hudson to play the main characters They would have made a fun movie of The Gift Shop Enjoyable novel for a nice retro change of reading pace The author Charlotte Armstrong was unknown to me until I unearthed this book at a library book sale Armstrong was a prolific writer with 29 novels many plays short stories and screenplays to her name when she passed away in 1969 I look forward to exploring some of her other works

CHARACTERS The Gift Shop CHARACTERS Í The Gift Shop Charlotte Armstrong Ä 0 CHARACTERS Pretty Jean Cunliffe finds herself at the heart of a dangerous plot beyond anything she ever imaginedAt the side of a mysterious playboy millionaire who has asked for her help Jean is pitched into. I read this years and years ago and suddenly had the urge to revisit some of my favorite authors so of course I had to re read this book I think it s one of Armstrong s best books Her heroine Jean Cunliffe is somewhat rare in that she is feminine but also strong and independent not whiny and constantly in need of rescue Even when being held captive she can stand up for herself Fear doesn t immobilize her she doesn t give up She shows initiative and intelligence in the face of danger and when she unintentionally messes up she takes full responsibility for her own actions The hero Harry Fairchild is a good match for Jean Smart funny brave and loyal Harry takes on the search for a missing little girl who may or may not be his sister without a second thought The youngest son of a wealthy father he s in some ways overshadowed by his brothers one a governor and the other a surgeon He hides behind a playboy facade while pursuing academic fields These two characters have a great rapport almost from the beginning and together they are able to resolve the case
