Publisher's Summary

The eleventh book in the Libby Sarjeant series of British murder mysteries which features a retired actress as the female sleuth and is based in the picturesque village of Steeple Martin.

Libby Sarjeant is invited to look into the provenance of a jewelled Anglo-Saxon reliquary which has appeared on a website. The nuns at St Eldreda's Abbey are curious, as it apparently contains a relic of St Eldreda herself. Libby's friend Peter obtains permission to mount a play based on St Eldreda's story in the ruins of the original monastery called, naturally, Murder in the Monastery. And then, inevitably, a real body is discovered, and Libby and her friend Fran find out that this is not the first.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    Story
    "Not so much a cozy as a good sedative"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. While I am a fan of the British cozy/tea cake genre, this was so boring. i did not finish the book.


    Would you recommend Murder in the Monastery to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Not any of the characters were charming or interesting to me. Patricia Wentworth is far superior.


    What didn’t you like about Patience Tomlinson’s performance?

    The reader got on my nerves. I prefer British readers, but this was too shrill and the male voices annoying.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed as I was looking forward to a new series of a cozy. I do not require fast action (in fact, loathe it) but this was just so very dry and boring.

    Story
    "Not so keen on this narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder in the Monastery to be better than the print version?

    Much the same


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder in the Monastery?

    none specific


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Patience Tomlinson?

    I prefer Deryn Edwards narrating these books


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator rather spoilt the book as it was very difficult to distinguish which character was speaking and I'm sure no-one speaks the way she had the male characters doing.

    "much ado about a relic"
    Any additional comments?

    libby finds herself in another murder mystery. this time it's originally a monk who was murdered in the 1960's. but a new murder is committed after a play.
    another enjoyable story where Andrew comes into his own researching a family tree, and if you have read all the other books you will know who he is.
    glad to hear that patience Tomlinson is back. I was just getting used to listening to deryn Edwards.
