I don't know about you, but I cherish traveling the English countryside with friends. From Northumberland to Devon, there is so much to discover and enjoy. My friends, with whom I stay when I visit, are generous, fun, and have become like family. I appreciate their hospitality, great Sunday roast dinners, walks to the town square, and their rigorous manuscript reviews. I love reading and writing English cozies.
This is the perfect time of year to read my Lenten mystery, Up From the Grave. Give your brain a tickle in working out clues that tell you 'who did it.' Enjoy the triumph of right over wrong, and celebrate Easter morning with this small English village.
Also, a new book, Enigma of Fire: A Berdie Elliott Pentecost Mystery is available. It smolders with undercurrents that blaze to life when Berdie, vicar's wife and sleuth, uses her gifts to sniff out who's responsible for an explosive vehicle fire of the church's people carrier. This story sizzles.
Candle for a Corpse is a brain-tickle holiday read that is fun and relaxing. Having spent Christmas in England, I've come to especially appreciate the family/community spirit that is an intrical part of the season there.
Up From the Grave, a Berdie Elliott Lenten Mystery, is the second in the Berdie Elliott series. A mystery's unearthed and Berdie digs in to get to the bottom of it.
Into the Clouds, the third Berdie Elliott book is an Ascension mystery that takes the village of Aidan Kirkwood to new heights when someone vanishes into thin air.
I hope you have as much fun reading the exploits of Berdie Elliott, the vicar's wife in a small English village, as much as I love bringing her to you.

I've added a couple photos of the beautiful Ely Cathedral near Kings Lyn in Norfolk, England. And I've posted a few pictures from Corfe Castle in Dorset. I think you might find some snaps of small English villages enjoyable as well. A bit like Aiden Kirkwood? Hope you enjoy it.
