Booklist Review

Freelance journalist Rona Parish is writing a series of articles on the quaint English village of Buckford, which will soon celebrate its 800th anniversary. She figures that, rather than reviewing Buckford's history, she'll try the quirkier approach of looking at unusual characters who have lived in the village. To get a flavor of the village, Rona takes a room with local resident Nuala Banks and is soon caught up in interviews and the ins and outs of local life. Nuala is quick to introduce Rona to her aunt--and local eccentric--Miss Edna Rosebury, who is a bit gaga but is sharp enough to confide that she knows more than she's telling about the death of a four-year-old girl years earlier. When a stranger attacks Rona, and Edna is found dead, Rona begins to look for the dark secrets lurking behind Buckford's pleasant facade. Clever plotting, appealing characters, and a dash of suspense make Fraser's latest a fine choice for fans of the traditional British village mystry. --Emily Melton Copyright 2004 Booklist


Library Journal Review

Writer/sleuth Rona Parish (Brought to Book) takes an assignment covering the town of Buckford's 500th anniversary. Her task seems straightforward, but her first interview with an elderly woman leads to an investigation of a recent murder. British psychological suspense at its best. (c) Copyright 2010.
