Death Comes to the Fair4 StarsWhen the verger of St Mary s church is found dead after winning several prizes at the local fair Lucy Harrington and er betrothed Major Robert Kurland are not convinced that the death was an accident As some strange evidence emerges Lucy and Robert uncover a centuries old vendetta that may My Holiday in North Korea have devastating conseuences in their own lives Another enchanting installment in Lloyd s cozyistorical series As with the previous books it is the characterization rather than the mystery that is most appealing Much of the charm of this series is the witty banter between Lucy and the Major This as not changed now that the two are engaged and their repartee is as delightful as ever Although the investigation into the verger s death appears trivial at first it becomes interesting as the motives for is murder begin to emerge and there are one or two truly suspenseful moments That said the ultimate explanation feels somewhat contrived and the identity of the villain is a surprise mainly due to the lack of clues along the way All in all this is a wonderful series overall and this book is entertaining albeit not as good as the previous three Looking forward to of Lucy and Robert in the future The Kurland St Mary Mystery series is charming and traditional and I thought the previous books were uite uaint Death Comes to the Fair is the fourth outing in the series and unlike the previous three titles 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 engaged to be married Part of the charm in the previous books was the sparring bet I was delighted to read the 4th book in Kurland St Mary Mystery The setting is charming and the mystery was well planned and engaging I always enjoy reading about Jane and the other characters in this uaint English village and the discussion of Light Years Selected Early Works 1969-1972 (A Dynamite book) her upcoming wedding to Major Kurland was exciting There was a twist at the end that I didn t see coming and it made for a very satisfying conclusion I amoping to read books in this series Death Comes to

attention to but other than that I was just as shocked as Lucy to discover the identity of the murderer I loved learning the Medicine and Religion history of Kurland St Mary from the English Civil War to the present year of 1817 I learned a bit of Britishistory and saw the English Civil War from a different perspective I also loved learning about so called wise women The Hockey Saint (Forever
