Just came across this author who had many books published during the70's and on through to 2008.


Has anyone read her books and if so what do you think?

I have a few of her books. They're short and good enough reads, but can be a little sketchy on the history. Sarah over at Reading the Past did a nice tribute to her:

Thank you for posting this link BB, I wouldn't mind having a gander at her Falcon saga :) I've got quite a few of Maureen Peters' books on Mt. TBR, but I've yet to read one.

I have several of her books and have read a few - a little hit or miss (kind of like Plaidy...)

Thanks for posting the link to my note about her, BB. Her books are pretty fast reads. Some are more imaginative in the accuracy department than others (Plaidy is generally better for that), and I prefer the ones she wrote about fictional characters.
