Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St. Edwold's in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. The quiet village seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. Now he has found a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and crafters and New Agers. But this new-found serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play. Max has ministered to the community long enough to be familiar with the tangled alliances and animosities among the residents, but this tragedy surprises and confounds him. It is impossible to believe anyone in his lovely village capable of the crime, and yet given the victim, he must acknowledge that almost everyone had probably fantasized about killing Wanda Batton-Smythe. As the investigation unfolds, Max becomes more intricately involved. Memories he'd rather not revisit are stirred, evoking the demons from the past which led him to Nether Monkslip.

If you enjoy lots of quirky characters and lots of description, this one is for you; not me

So, if you can accept the MI5 agent turned village vicar, you can probably swallow this one. The mystery is somehow both predictable and kind of absurd. Also, the audiobook had some odd pauses--like the editor forgot to take them out. Just good enough to pass the time.

Max Tudor has gone from MI5 agent to parish vicar of St. Edwold's in the cozy little village of Nether Monkslip; but, he even there he hasn't escaped from being drawn into solving an unexplained death. Who in is sleepy little place could be capable of murder?

The first book in the Max Tudor series

If you enjoy vintage British village mysteries and are intrigued by The Grandchester tales, this series of mysteries, featuring the Reverend Max Tudor , handsome ex spy, and current vicar at St. Edwold's Church in Nether Monkslip will charm and entertain you. The tales of murder and mayhem are organized around the seasons of the year, and the stories feature an entertaining and recurring cast of village dwellers. These books are perfect for lovers of the "cozy" mystery.

Current titles in the series include; A Fatal Winter, Pagan Spring, A Demon Summer, Wicked Autumn and The Haunted Season.

This is the first time I've read this author & I doubt I'll pick up another. Max is an interesting character but the story is just a little too sleepy & slow paced for my taste.

This book is a little wordy in places. The characterizations are very well done. The author brings a tongue-in-cheek humour to her prose that lightens the mood.
