Berdie is like a younger version of Miss Marple, though happily married to her handsome ex-military turned vicar husband. Her friend Lillie, the choir director, makes a fun sidekick as they sneak around trying to solve the mystery ahead of the grumpy local policeman.

Our heroine is Berdie Elliot, the wife of the vicar at St. Aidan of the Wood Parish Church. When the ground turning ceremony for a new garden area at the church turns up human bones, Berdie goes to work to solve the mystery.
I love the characters in this novel. They are the quirky ones you'll only find in British novels. Berdie is tenacious, fining out who the strangers in the village are and why they've come. The dialog is great with frequent humor. Berdie and her friend Lillie are a riot.
This novel requires attention to detail. There are many characters and the plot is convoluted. There are many twists and turns and I must admit I got a little lost at the very end.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

building of a fountain at the St. Aidan of the Wood parish
church. What's this_.the ground turning unearths a little
skeleton!! Whose could it be? How did it get there? How long
ago was it buried?
This is the perfect investigation for Berdie Elliott, the vicar's
wife, to undertake on her own volition. Of course, her best
friend Lillie needs to assist her. The antics of these two add
humor throughout the story.
The characters of Aidan Kirkwood are delightfully quirky
presenting many suspects to the storyline. The dialogue
contains many English idioms and informal speech patterns.
The plot has many twists and turns to keep you guessing to
the very end.
The book has mystery, conflict, suspense, danger, romance
and humor making the read very enjoyable.
I read this book as a stand alone. I understand it is the second book in the Berdie Elliot Mystery series.
I received this book from book fun.org. My opinion is my own.
