Morwenna Goss, the mysterious story keeper of the old Scottish burying ground, invites guests to dine at the beautiful old family manor house.

This is a really fun series, I enjoy all of the Sparrow Falls books. Well written, entertaining characters, with a nice, light mystery. No swearing, sex or gore. I hope the author sees these reviews, and would please ..... STOP reminding us every other page how "spry" the character is.
