In the English village of Kurland St. Mary, few things are worse than having one’s reputation besmirched. A struggling marriage is one. Murder is another…

Three years have passed since Major Sir Robert Kurland and Lucy Harrington, the rector’s daughter, became husband and wife. Having established a measure of contentment among the gentry of Kurland St. Mary, the couple lately have found an unsettling distance grown between them. But when the small-village peace is disrupted by the arrival of an anonymous letter accusing Lucy of witchcraft, her as yet unfulfilled desire to be a mother becomes the least of her worries, especially after she learns she is not the only one to have received such a malicious letter.

Speculation in the village only escalates when the local schoolteacher, Miss Broomfield, is discovered murdered at her classroom desk. Was the unlikeable teacher the letter writer, and if so, who killed her and why? Despite her husband’s objections, Lucy offers to help out at the school until a replacement can be found, hoping the schoolchildren might inadvertently reveal a clue, but by doing so she may be putting her own life at risk…

Outstanding Praise for Catherine Lloyd and her Kurland St. Mary Mysteries!

Death Comes to the FairDeath Comes to the Fair

“Catherine Lloyd has added yet another outstanding historical mystery novel to the Kurland St. Mary Mystery series. (…) 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!” —B. Rogers, an Amazon reader review

“I have read all the books in this series. Each is better than the last. The mystery takes a surprising turn after the second death that kept me reading until the end. Looking forward to the next installment. Highly recommend it if you are an Agatha Christie fan.” —KT, an Amazon reader
