    When venturing into the pages of a Mel Starr novel, one steps into medieval England in the mid 1300s. Thoroughly enjoy these sojourns in the villages and across Shill Brook with the incomparable Hugh de Singleton Surgeon and bailiff of Lord Gilbert's estate and village. For those unfamiliar, Master Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon a character of many fine points that the author develops quite well. Singleton is Oxford educated and medically read and trained. He is friend of John Wycliffe (Bible Translator). He is not married, though he longs for the comfort and warmth of a wife.

    The story is written first-person with the voice of Singleton. Author Mel Starr is a historian by education and trade and has thoroughly research this series of period novels. Included in the front of the book are words and terms to help understand the terminology of the period. But you don't feel as though you are reading a history book. As Hugh de Singleton rides Bruce, the horse given him to use about the village and castle's business, he ponders the varied events that he must resolve and charge the culprits for the poaching and murders that trouble his village.

    The story takes the reader through the mental exercises, daily treks and journeys, meals of loaves of bread and ale and pieces of meat taken cold because he missed meal time. Mel Starr writes with ease and knowledge about the life and times and the status of different folk. How each person's job or status determined the lodging and even the quantity, frequency, and types of food they are able to eat.The reader will gain an appreciation for the laws of the period about ownership, poaching, curfews, and simple rights or lack of rights. You grasp the social order and the privilege of rank that exists.

    Singleton is trying to solve multiple murders and poaching that occurred on his Lord's estate and in going about this, his skills as a detective/bailiff are used but also his knowledge, and "cutting edge" opinions and skills as a surgeon.

    I began this series in the middle and have now read six of the books. I had to go back and start with the first book. I found Starr's style different and refreshing. It was interesting to read this period book and I felt that I could trust Starr's interpretation of the customs of the time.

    DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy of A Corpse at St. Andrews Chapel from Kregel Publishing on behalf of the author for the purpose of my honest review. I was under no obligation to provide favorable comments. Opinions expressed are solely my own.

    Mel Starr has created an intriguing historic medieval murder mystery set in 1365 in 14th century Britain. His research and writing style and attention to detail puts you right into the story, the location, medieval life and medicine with great characters. Mr Starr has included a Glossary that pertains to medieval times that was very helpful.

    The main character is Master Hubert de Singleton , surgeon and bailiff at Bampton Manor. He has been assigned to investigate the murder of Alan the beadle of the manor whose body has been found outside of St. Andrew's Chapel. A gruesome scene. Alan's throat has been torn out and half of his head was severed with lacerated scratches on his arms. The coroner decides Alan was attacked by a wolf but Hugh is not convinced. A second murder takes Hugh in a different direction. If I keep writing I may disclose to much. There is so much that happens in this story it is a must read. It is great and I really enjoyed it.t.

    Although this is the second book in this series it can be read as a stand along book. Look forward to reading more of this authors books.

    I received a free copy of this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    I have enjoyed the series. A lot of work went into the history. Each book could be a stand alone as parts of the previous books are mentioned. I recommend this set.

    This was a fun historical mystery. I love the character of Master Hugh de Singleton. He is so much fun. He is the bailiff and surgeon of this area and very observant. He is alone until he meets a woman during his investigation. This has mystery and some minor romance and some fun parts. I received this book from book fun.org foe a fair and honest opinion.
