Series: Reverend Merrily Watkins Mysteries, the
The Reverend Merrily Watkins had never wanted a picture-postcard parish -- or a huge and haunted vicarage. Nor had she particularly wanted to walk straight into a local dispute over a controversial play about a strange seventeenth-century clergyman accused of witchcraft… a story that certain old-established families would rather remained obscured.
But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets. A paradise of cobbled streets and timber-framed houses. And also -- as Merrily and her teenage daughter Jane discover - a village where horrific murder is a tradition that spans centuries.
