I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays. These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to. I'll be linking up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.
I'm very excited about this week's book because I enjoyed the first book in the series, The Shadow of Death, so very much. Plus, I also loved meeting and eating breakfast with the author, Jane Willan. OK, I'll confess, I think the book actually was released last week, but since I was not posting, I'm still 'waiting' on:
by Jane Willan
Publication Date: October 9th
As Yuletide settles upon Gwenafwy Abbey, the rural Welsh convent’s peace is shattered when Tiffany Reese, president of the Village Art Society, is found dead on the floor of the parish hall. Sister Agatha, whose interests lie more with reading and writing mystery stories than with making the abbey’s world-renowned organic gouda, is not shy about inserting herself into the case. With the not-entirely-eager assistance of Father Selwyn, she begins her investigation.
Sister Agatha has no shortage of suspects to check off her naughty-or-nice list, until finally, Tiffany’s half-brother, Kendrick Geddings, emerges as the prime suspect. There never was any love lost between Tiffany and Kendrick, and of late they had been locked in a vicious battle for control of the family estate. But if Sister Agatha thinks she has the case wrapped up, she’ll have to think again.
As the days of Advent tick by, Sister Agatha is determined to crack the case by Christmas.
Oh yes, this looks like a good one for a Christmas read!!! Here's my Wednesday post! Happy Hump Day! xReplyDelete
I think so and I plan to try it before long - maybe in a few weeks.Delete
This is a book that I've noticed, too. I love the cover and am looking forward to reading it for Christmas! Good choice!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jan. Yes, I'm looking forward to spending a little time with the characters here. They are great.Delete

I'm looking forward to it, Catherine. I love the characters.Delete
I love snowy covers - and hate cold temps. I'm so weird. Hope you love this one!ReplyDelete
I don't think that's weird, Barb. I'm not much on cold either, but I do like to read books that are set in cold places.Delete
Oh, I love a Welsh setting, Kay! This sounds charming, and I hope you enjoy every bit!ReplyDelete

I know I will, Jennifer. I really liked the first book when I read it this summer.Delete
This sounds like a great holiday read! I'm always on the lookout for those (even ones that involve murder!).ReplyDelete
I don't read too many holiday-themed books, but sometimes they are just the thing.Delete
I think I have an ARC of this one - or if I don't I really wanted one! It looks so good!ReplyDelete
I think it will be - hope you get to read it too.Delete
This looks good and it's a beautiful cover.ReplyDelete

I agree. And the characters are fun.Delete
This sounds great. I may have to pick up a copy and read it during the HoHoHo Readathon in a couple of weeks.ReplyDelete
It's definitely a fun book. I liked the first in the series and am listening to this one on audio. Great narrator.Delete
