A cozy mystery set in a picturesque English village peopled by interesting characters- especially our sleuth in the person of a dashing vicar/former MI5 operative! I quite enjoyed this. One quibble: when we found out who dunnit, the culprit and the method were a little convoluted. Still, I'll give the next in the series a try at some point. 😁👍

Andrew65 Those English villages are deadly! Keep out of them at risk of your life! 1mo
bookandbedandtea @Andrew65 I've noticed that! Especially at harvest and during snowstorms. 😉 1mo
Andrew65 @bookandbedandtea And also at any fairs! 1mo
bookandbedandtea @Andrew65 This particular book has a Harvest Fayre! Double trouble! 1mo

I really wanted to like it, but... It took forever for anything to happen in the book. The whole thing was a bit unrealistic when the culprit was revealed. I‘d like to realistically be able to at least guess whodunnit although the book. It definitely did not work as an ebook for me. The setting was great and the sleuth has potential.

EadieB @Tove_Reads I read this one too a few years back. I would consider it a cozy mystery and kind of milder than the books we are reading now. 6mo
Tove_Reads @EadieB Definitely a cozy. They usually work well as audio. 6mo

So often I select audiobooks for the narrators I love and this one is no exception but- happy surprise- I enjoyed the story. The first of a series of Max Tudor mysteries- Max is now the Vicar of Nether Monkslip after leaving MI-5. Great characters, good plotting and just the tiniest splash of Wodehouse. I will read further in this series for just enjoyable mystery stories. 👍👍🥳🥳

LouLouLane Sounds great! 9mo
Booksnchill @LouLouLane it was fun- the character names are very wodehousian! 9mo

I thought I‘d love this cozy mystery. The detective is ex-M15 and an Anglican priest. I was really bored for most of the novel and the only character with any depth at all was the murder victim. I felt the writing was subpar and didn‘t capture my imagination. Does the series improve?
