Publisher's Summary

When Ellie Kent moves to an English village with her new husband Graham, she fears the villagers will always see her at that young American who snared their attractive vicar during his sabbatical in California. But this challenge is nothing compared to what happens when she stumbles across a body in the churchyard. 

The villagers insist they don't know the murdered man, so suspicion mounts that the killer must be the incomer - the vicar's new wife. As evidence piles up against her, Ellie tries to stay one step ahead of the police to unravel a decades-old literary mystery and love story. Will others die before she can solve it? And what will be left of her new life and marriage, even if she succeeds?

Outstanding

Loved the characters and plot. Very well written and the mystery keeps you guessing! The narrator does a fabulous job and Ellie sounds like an intelligent American rather than an ignorant slang obsessed bimbo which unfortunately is what I’m used to hearing. I will definitely read the sequel.
