(From the publisher):
When the women of Heston-upon-Weir decided to band together to block the appointment of a new vicar who was not only unacceptably High Church but also celibate, they set off a sequence of ill-will, conspiracy, and malicious gossip. Helen Kitterege, wife of the local vet, tried to remain aloof but when the malice degenerated into murder, Helen was affected more than anyone else. Somewhere in the female dominated town was a murderer, and Helen was determined to find out who it was.
