This is a fun English ...

This is a fun English mystery. Max Tudor is a former spy turned cleric. He is a cleric in a small town and seems to run in to murders. The characters were all good. I really like his Wiccan wife. They work very well together. I really enjoy small town mysteries. I hope to read some of the prior books in this series. You don't need to read any of the previous books to get caught up in the story. I received a copy of this book from St.Martin's Press and Netgalley for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

No. 7 in the Father Ma...

No. 7 in the Father Max Tudor (formerly of MI5) mystery series, is an enjoyable and relaxing read. Father Max is drawn into another local investigation - this time peeling back the the layers on what appears to be a murder-suicide. Doth the grieving widow/step-mom protesteth too much? This story played out more in the mind and not so much with action scenes. It certainly was a good and most enjoyable book. Synopsis: Newly returned from investigating a murder in Monkslip-super-Mare, handsome Max Tudor wants nothing more than to settle back into his predictable routine as vicar of St. Edwold's Church in the village of Nether Monkslip. But the flow of his sermon on Bathsheba is interrupted when the lady of the local manor house is found in a suicide pact with her young lover. Lady Duxter's husband rallies quickly from the double tragedy-too quickly, it is murmured in the village. Lord Duxter already has offered his manor house to a motley crew of writers, including Max's wife Awena, for his writers' retreat, and he insists the show must go on. When a young girl goes missing and a crime writer becomes a target, DCI Cotton asks Max to lend his MI5 expertise to the investigation. Many suspects emerge as the scope of the investigation widens beyond the writers to villagers who had crossed swords with the insufferably smug crime author. But Max begins to wonder: was the attack on the writer only part of a broader conspiracy of silence?

Max Tudor, an Anglican...

Max Tudor, an Anglican priest married to a Wiccan, is also a former MI5 officer. Settled now in the small town of Monkslip, Max finds himself involved in another investigation into a death in his area. A man and a woman,are apparently the victims of a suicide pact (only half successful...the woman has survived). But everything is not as it seems, and Max listens and observes and is able to not only solve the mystery, but save another life. An interesting mystery set in a quirky English village, this is a lovely cozy mystery series.

I have enjoyed this se...

I have enjoyed this series since the beginning, but this book lacked the panache of the earlier books. The author spent too much time describing each thought and action, that when an event happened, the reader had lost track of the event. I love the characters, but even the characters showed flatness and dullness. The book fell into such blandness, that not a scene remains in my memory. This could possibly be the demise of Max Tudor as future reading for me.
