    Death Comes to the Village 4 Stars Confined to bed while recovering from injuries sustained at the Battle of Waterloo, Major Robert Kurkland awakens one night and observes something strange from his window. When a young girl vanishes from the village, Kurkland enlists the aid of th...

    The mystery aspect of the story is nice enough, though it was still somewhat obvious to a discerning reader who the culprit is. Characterization had the hero more complex than the heroine, who seemed to be a male-weary person without much else to recommend her than the care she bestows...

    I got this free from Firstreads. here is my honest review. Serene and cozy village life in early 1800's Kurland St Mary's England? Hardly, as items are going missing in local homes and businesses, and two local girls seemed to have gone missing. Major Robert Kurland has just recentl...

    Nice cozy mystery but too many anachronisms for me to really enjoy it. The main characters behaved in ways that simply would not have been done during the Regency period. The most glaring examples are Miss Lucy Harrington running directly into Major Kurland's bedroom several times and ...

    3.5 stars This cozy historical mystery, set in England, has a little bit of a Regency romance feel. Lucy, the rector's daughter, and Robert, a magistrate and wounded soldier, notice some thievery and strange goings-on in the village. With a young woman disappearing, and the men...

    A very good first historical/cozy with a very well-plotted mystery. If you're the type that wants a dead body ASAP, you're going to be disappointed, but if you enjoy a good mystery regardless of when the body drops, give this one a try. Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/89...

    Major Robert Kurland was wounded at the Battle of Waterloo and for several months he's been cooped up in his home near the village of Kurland St. Mary attended by his faithful butler and batman. One night he wakes to the moonlight streaming in his window and at the risk of his health, ...

    (This is a review of the audiobook.) ????? I quiet enjoyed this first in the series, but man-oh-man, did the narrator read this one sllllllowly. I had to speed it up to 1.5 times and it was still slow. Still, loved this small town mystery and the budding relationship betw...

    Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Can't wait for book two. I listened to this one on audio and recommend that format. ...

    Super into these. Very, very much into these. I mean, I had a few twinges of supreme annoyance (okay, perhaps surpressed rage) over how her entire family seems to take Lucy to granted, while simultaneously insulting her (particularly her father), but I got over it. This is obviousl...
