Mrs. Malory and Any Man's Death (Mrs. Malory Series #19)by Hazel Holt
The village of Mere Barton would be a different place without local busybody Annie Roberts. Standing only five feet tall, the tireless retired nurse organizes and oversees all local activity with military precision. When Sheila Malory gets roped into Annie's latest project, a compilation of the village's history, she has a feeling it will lead to trouble. But the project is cut short when Annie is found dead from a nasty case of mushroom poisoning, and Mrs. Malory seems to be the only one who finds the death suspicious. Because of her nosy nature, Annie had discovered some dark secrets about her fellow villagers. Secrets someone might kill to keep quiet.

5 star Mystery in little English village
such a pleasure to slip once more into the comfortable world of Mrs. Malory. like a conversation with an old friend, exciting content is relatively unimportant. it's the relationship and catching up with familiar characters that counts.
