Waiting on Wednesday - The Hour of Death



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:




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.

  4. I love snowy covers - and hate cold temps. I'm so weird. Hope you love this one!

    1. 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.
