Rebecca and Friends

There's nothing like a little romance and a little danger to get your heart plumping.  What better way to honor Daphne du Maurier's May birthday than to check out a romantic suspense book or movie.  Her novel Rebecca is a real classic romantic suspense novel and Alfred Hitchcock turned the book into a wonderful movie.  Once you have re-read the book or watched the movie again, pick up one of these romantic suspense favorites.
