A classic

If you are a collector of first editions, you'll want to try to order this book the minute it becomes available. It is the traditional village mystery at its best--an intelligent cozy both men and women should enjoy. Clever, witty, smart. Believe what you've heard: This...

It is the traditional village mystery at its best--an intelligent cozy both men and women should enjoy. Clever, witty, smart. Believe what you've heard: This one will be around for a long time. This is a review of an Advance Review Copy of the book. Recommended for fans of Louise Penny.

I was curious about this series...

...and I'm glad that I gave this one a chance.

It is multiple characters within a small village whose vicar is a former MI5 agent. Its a village in which the Vicar feels that no evil could intrude. But it does. A murder is committed.

It's interesting in how it is ...

It's interesting in how it is written.

You follow the vicar as he visits each of the more prominent citizens within the village and you get to know them. You are almost in the Vicar's thoughts as he contemplates every meeting and word spoken. And as he sips each cup of tea, he starts to see how someone could fathom so much hate for a person and it leads to "MURDER."

I think this is a great introduction to the villagers and a Vicar and the mystery that could lie ahead for them in each new book. I will definitely look for more in this series.

    Highly recommended

    The hours you spend with the suspicious denizens of this English village will be rewarding. The book is a treat for those who like cozies, wit, and character development. I will definitely look for and buy the next G. M. Malliet.

    Traditional Cozy

    Mild-mannered mystery set in English village, a fun read that plays fair with its clues.

    Really liked it!

    I love "cozy" mysteries, especially if they are set in England. This one is a bonus since the protagonist is an Anglican priest and I am a member of the Anglican Communion. I got a kick out of the references to the Book of Common Prayer!

    The story was good- some characters were not as developed as I thought they would/should be, but I imagine that they will be in future installments. I didn't figure out the killer which to me is an indicator of a good mystery, but then again, it could be that I am just not that clever!

    Only one drawback- I felt like the last chapter wrapped things up too quickly. I had to read it twice.

    I will absolutely continue with this series!

    An entertaining mystery, set in a village reminiscient of St. Mary Mead.

    With Agatha Christie as the gold standard for a truly puzzling mystery, G. M. Malliet comes in with a strong "silver medal" placing. If you want to get in on the beginning of what promises to be a good series, I definitely recommend reading this first book. I plan on buying the second book of the series as soon as it is published.
