Murder in Steeple Martin

Murder in Steeple Martin

Artist and ex-actress Libby Sarjeant is busy directing a play for the opening of a new theatre in her village when one of her cast is found murdered. The play, written by her friend Peter, is based on real events in his family, disturbing and mysterious, which took place in the village during the last war. As the investigation into the murder begins to uncover a tangled web of relationships in the village, it seems that the events dramatised in the play still cast a long shadow, dark enough to inspire murder. Libby's natural nosiness soon leads her into the thick of the investigation, but is she too close to Peter's family, and in particular his cousin Ben, to be able to recognise the murderer?

    In all honesty, this book is well-written with a good, if slow and not all that juicy, plot. I believe, though, that it is aimed at an older readership than me. The protagonist and her romantic intere...

  • Cheryl Landmark

    This was a well-written, light cozy mystery set in England with typical dry British humour and quirky expressions. One such expression was "old trout", an euphuism that was no doubt meant to be affect...

    Problematic. There is something missing - the book feels much too long, perhaps, or at least longer than it is. That said, this series is mostly 99cents in the Kindle store, so I am sure to keep readi...
