G. M. Malliet – The Haunted Season


Lord and Lady Baaden-Boomethistle have been in residence for some weeks now, and the villagers are hoping for a return to the good old days, when the lord of the manor sprinkled benefits across the village like fairy dust. Father Max Tudor’s invitation to dinner at the hall comes as a welcome novelty; it will be his first time meeting the famous family that once held sway in the area. Before he has time to starch his clerical collar and organize a babysitter, a sudden and suspicious death intervenes, and the handsome vicar’s talent for sorting through clues to a murder is once again called into play in this charming and clever story.

A bit disappointed in this one. I found the plot a little contrived and the characterisations overdone. I was most disappointed in the use of American terms used in a story set in an English village, for example “fall” for Autumn and “diaper” for nappy. I know a lot of readers may be American but verisimilitude needs the correct terms
