    4. An interesting story where the murderer was totally unexpected and the motive also. However, this is the 6th book in a series, and a lot of reference was made to previous murder cases, but with no explanations, which was quite distracting from the story. If there had been some brief explanation of what was being referred to, the story would have flowed much more smoothly.

    5. Interesting story lineI enjoyed this book as much as the preceding books in this series. This time I had no idea who had done the murders or why! The background historical information makes these books even more interesting to read

    6. This book explores the pagan and early Christian customs of England and the Isle of Man. The author has clearly done research and presents a festival of firelighting, well dressing and other customs. However this is supposed to be a mystery, and there the author seems to have run out of steam.The protagonist Libby Serjeant notes that a man has disappeared but she spends the majority of the book declaring that she is not going to investigate it (well, what are the police paid for, we ask) and moo [...]

    7. A member of a local Morris Dancing team is found dead and amateur sleuth Libby Sarjeant and her psychic friend Fran investigate.The basic plot got lost in endless descriptions of places and people – it read more like a soap opera than a murder mystery. In the edition I read there were good sections, but the writing style was rambling and I had to read some sentences a couple of times to understand them. It this book had been ruthlessly edited it would have been much better.It you enjoy straigh [...]

    8. I'm totally addicted to these Libby Sarjeant books! They just get better and better & I so love all of her friends, she seems to collect a new one with each story! I've now loaded the next one onto my Kindle, whatever will I do when I've read them all.

    9. Have become fan of this series. Was not disappointed by authors characters or story line. This is what mystery readers seek in a series. Characters one can relate with and action to keep story moving. Dialogue is always entertaining.

    10. Most enjoyable mystery with a return of expected characters. Have added all books in series to my reading list as author creates a good mystery series.

    11. I found this book much harder to read than the earlier novels. I found that I really didn't care about the plot or the characters.

    12. sorry i found it impossible to read - it was death by geneaologywith a huge dollop of history of pagan practices thrown in I gave up.rry but no
