Publisher's summary

It's harvest time in the village of Kurland St. Mary as Lucy and Robert prepare to wed - but a murderer has taken an unseasonable vow of vengeance....

As Miss Lucy Harrington, daughter of the village rector, and Major Sir Robert Kurland plan their nuptials, the major is beginning to wonder if he'll ever hear wedding bells. He's seen complex military campaigns that involved less strategy, and he's finding Lucy's meddling family maddening. 

When the body of Ezekiel Thurrock, the church verger, is discovered crushed by a gargoyle that has fallen from the bell tower, the wedding is delayed. But the evidence suggests this was no accident, and Lucy wonders if bad blood at the village fair had anything to do with the man's mysterious demise, since there was much bitterness over Ezekiel's prizewinning vegetables. As Lucy and Robert uncover longstanding village feuds, the town's dark secrets begin to take their toll, and the couple soon finds they, too, are in grave danger....

Started Off Ok But for the Reader

The story line peaked my interest but I couldn't get through it with the reader, Cat Gould. Most of her English accents were cloying, too affected, like caricatures. And most of her male voices are just her speaking in lower tones, like I would do, trying to mimic a guy.

I happened to be a fan of the previous reader, Susannah Tyrrell. Sadly for me, I won't be continuing with this series with Cat Gould.
