As wedding bells chime in Kurland St. Mary, a motley group of visitors descends on the village-and with a murderer on the prowl, some of them may not be returning home . . . Lucy Harrington has returned to Kurland St. Mary to help with her friend Sophia Giffin's wedding. But her homecoming is made disagreeable by the presence of Major Robert Kurland, whose bungled proposal has ruffled Lucy's composure, and a meddling widow who has designs on her father, the village rector. Wary of the cloying Mrs. Chingsford from the start, Lucy has doubts about the busybody's intentions with her father. But everyone else seems to think they make an ideal match-until the courtship is curtailed when Mrs. Chingsford is found dead at the bottom of a staircase. It's clear that it wasn't an accident, and in hopes of finding the culprit, Lucy and Robert call a truce and begin scrutinizing the wedding guests. But the widow left behind plenty of enemies, and when one of them is the next to turn up dead, Lucy and Robert discover that the truth is far more scandalous than anyone could have imagined . . . Outstanding Praise for Catherine Lloyd and her Kurland St. Mary Mysteries!

Third in the series. Lucy Harrington and Major Kurland join forces again to search for a serial killer - this time one who is very good at arranging fatal "accidents". The village says that the Major's new secretary Mr. Fairfax is perfect for Lucy... but is he?

She writes in the style of Dorothy L. Sayers and her 'Peter Wimsey Stories' which I like very much. I look forward to Mrs. Lloyd's next book.
