Author: G.M. Malliet Rating: 3 stars This book suffers from taking-too-long-to-get-to-the-point-itis. It took 70 pages for us to get to the murder. The first chapter started off so strong and then the story just... fizzled for a while. The idea of an ex-MI5 agent becoming disillusioned and chang...

Well, once again, I feel bad. I really should have liked this book. We've got a former spy who turned into an Anglican priest. I have a fondness for Anglican clergy.

I would say she is also very similiar to Julia Spencer-Fleming. The same type of small village setting, yet in England. As I like this type of book, I re...

I really liked this sweet mystery. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, and I appreciated that it differed from other "cozies" I've read. I particularly enjoyed the setting (a little English village). The characters were well-written, and I enjoyed getting to know Max's background as a former MI5 a...
