Yes, there are a bunch of Mary Stewarts cheap on Kindle in the UK as well just now.

And Julian Fellowes' Belgravia is 99p today.

Yes! Have you read MS yet? I do love her books, even as dated as they are, the nylon panties and nightgowns are so endearing.

Her Merlin series is on my top 10 list. But her contemporaries are my favorite 'brain candy'. They're just right when I don't want to have to do any heavy thinking!
