My Review:

Book 2 set in 1947. We encounter Luke Walker, the Vicar and Mrs Miller aka Martha who solved the previous mystery, still working together under an awkward energy.
Stan Martha’s Husband is missing, her dog Lizzie is still cute.
The appearance of a toddler called Janet causes a lot of chatter and confusion. Martha is still sad at not being a mother herself, and quite notably has a crush on the vicar.
It’s a very cosy read, I learned a new word: Fastidious!!!! It’s amazing what can happen in a weekend at the Winteringham County Fair, especially when a young lady is killed.
I really enjoyed this read and fully recommend it as an easy mystery.

Daggers at the Country Fair

Winteringham Village 1947

As a thank you for her previous brilliant crime solving, amateur sleuth, Martha Miller is guest of honour at the Winteringham Country Fair. However, this time she is looking forward to simply judging dog shows and eating cream teas rather than apprehending a killer!

And Martha is just beginning to enjoy spending quality time with Vicar Luke Walker away from the prying eyes and gossips of her own village, when disaster strikes, and the local teenage femme fatale is found stabbed to death behind the tea tent by Martha’s trusted red setter Lizzie!

But who would want to kill such a young girl and why? Someone in the village has secrets to hide and it seems Martha and Luke have another case to solve!

Let the investigation commence!
