Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St. Edwold's in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. It seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. But his 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 kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play. But it is impossible to believe anyone in this lovely village capable of the crime . . .

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?

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.

Good mystery. Kept me guessing until the end. Delightful characters. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

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.

A charming setting, interesting characters, and an intriguing idea: a slyly witty homage to Christie; but somewhat weakened by sloppy writing and editing.

Entertaining and I didn't see "who done it" until it was inked out for me. I love that!

Village, self-titled, queen (Wanda) is murdered during THE annual event, the Harvest Fayre. The new vicar, Max, who in his previous life was a MI5 agent, is brought in to help the police solve the crime.

Not quite as silly as it sounds, but did the vicar really have to be MI5? I guess that makes for interesting back story and can explain his skills.

A quaint setting. Are all these small tiny hamlets in rural England so successful and full of happy people? Makes me want to visit friends there.
