I won this book off the the goodreads give-away! I did not realize it was book 2 in a series till it came in. I have to read books in order so I checked out the first one from the library to read. This book is set around the era of the 50/60's in England. It has a lot of history in it which is always interesting but I did find it slow at times. The main character Sidney is a Anglican priest who dabbles on the side as a detective. Like the first book there are multiple short stories in the book where a new crime takes place and Sidney comes to the rescue to solve it. As the book progresses Sidney finally starts having a love life and finally take leaps of faith in that direction to match his strong Christian faith. All in all this book was ok but I have to say I actually enjoyed the first book more! If you like the early british era mixed in with multiple short mysteries then I suggest you check out the first book at your library. If you enjoy it you can always then buy it and the 2nd book as well. I will pass this book on to someone else as it is not something I would re-read again.

Set during start of Berlin wall and is a series of short stories connected and preceding in order always back to the vicarage. Not too familar of how the church and vicar function there is the church tax supported? Prefer the classic english mystery rather than the hardboiled and read many but the church position still escapes me momWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
