It is fall in Kurland St. Mary and it seems that everybody - except Lucy and Robert -- are planning their wedding. The family has decided that it has to be a big, splashy, society wedding in London, but Lucy wants her father to marry them in their own small church in Kurland St. Mary -- and Robert just wants to get married SOON!! He's even suggested eloping.
The mystery is an excellent one and keeps you guessing about who the villains are and how they managed to perpetrate it. It is well written, well paced and well thought out. There is even witchcraft -- woot!
During a really bad rainstorm, Lucy ducks into the church bell tower to take refuge and she trips over the lifeless body of the verger Mr. Ezekiel Thurrock. Everyone, except Lucy and Robert, assumes it is an accident. Who could want to harm a nice, sweet man like the verger who has lived quietly in Kurland St. Mary for over thirty years? Then, we get another yet another dead body -- there were LOTS of people who wanted that second one dead.
The investigation into the murders keep Lucy and Robert hopping. Then, of course, there is the tension from trying to sneak out together to investigate when they are supposed to always be chaperoned. They are, of course, caught and though their time spent together was in investigating, her father clamps down on her and makes it really hard to get out to investigate. Lets just say it actually works out better for Lucy in the long run because she ends up getting what she wants.
The last chapter is really sweet
