Ers 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 long standing village feuds the town's dark secrets begin to take their toll and the couple soon finds they too are in grave danger. ,
I had wondered whether Death Comes
to the Fair would hold up to my overly high xpectations following as it did onthe Fair would hold up to my overly high Shadow (New Species, expectations following as it did on heels of the virtually perfect Death Comes to Kurland Hall but for the most part it succeeded in being a satisfying seuel Robert and Lucy were delightful as always and the mystery took an interesting turn into the dark long buried past of Kurland St Mary and its oldest inhabitantsIt is ironic that Robert and Lucy should find it harder to spend time alone together after they are finally betrothed particularly since they seemed to have no trouble doing so before But now that they re in love and their constant arguments are a thing of the past at least for now they face the obstacle of having to be uite creative in dodging Lucy s chaperones and avoiding the wrath of the rector so that they could go sleuthing together The result is some fairly amusing moments of frustration andxasperation from Robert and the sweetness of their romantic interactions when they do manage to carve out some time alone made up for their infreuency More than 細味人生100篇 ever Robert and Lucy prove that they re the perfect team and Injoyed seeing them take what they ve learnt from The Gathering (Darkness Rising, each other and put it into action Robert is increasingly learning to trust Lucy s judgment diplomacy and bravery implicitly and Lucy draws strength from the Major s clear head in times of danger and his way of standing his ground Gone is the pessimistic and unsociable Robert and the Lucy who was once run roughshod by her selfish father siblings and Mrs Fielding in the first book Their character and relationship development has been so satisfying to watchThose who have found the identities of the murderers in the previous three books a little tooasy to guess might be pleased by how the murder mystery plays out in this story What begins as a seemingly simple case of a murder committed over petty village rivalries is gradually revealed to have very deep roots that stretch two centuries back into the history of Kurland St Mary with a touch of village superstition for good measure Fascinating as it was however readers were given little chance to know or care about the people involved and thus the resolution of the case felt rather convoluted rushed and anti climatic I have little fondness for the criminal and would have loved to have been given a chance to MongoDB experience the rush of triumph that would have come from seeing them brought to justiceI have absolutely no complaints about the note on which the book finished however so satisfying I can t wait for of Robert and Lucy s adventures and to see how their relationship continues to develop hopefully the author will have a seuel soon because my life already feelsmpty without Kurland St Mary I was delighted to read the 4th book in Kurland St Mary Mystery The setting is charming and the mystery was well

Learning exciting There was a twist at thend that I didn t see coming and it made for a very satisfying conclusion I am hoping to read books in this series This has been my favorite book of the series

Unlike Previous Threethe previous three I thought this latest lost some magic At the centre of this series are Miss Lucy Harrington and Major Sir Robert Kurland who are now ngaged to be married Part of the charm in the previous books was the sparring between these two characters Lucy and Robert were often at loggerheads however after being caught in a compromising position in the previous book the two are forced to marry To be clear neither Lucy or Robert are upset about being married and perhaps this lack of tension between these two characters is what stole some of the momentum while I was reading For me the lack of tension meant a loss of interest on my part Characters are what makes or breaks a book for me and in this case I felt disappointed with the lack of character development in our principle players Unfortunately the mystery did not compensate for the lackluster showing of the main characters The mystery was simple uaint and a tad contrived If you like your mysteries cozy the formulaic approach will appeal but those looking for a meatier series should look FRITZI auf Sylt -
