Death Comes to the Fair4 StarsWhen the verger of St Mary s church is found dead after winning several prizes at the local fair Lucy Harrington and er betrothed Major Robert Kurland are not convinced that the death was an accident As some strange evidence emerges Lucy and Robert uncover a centuries old vendetta that may Naughty Bedtime Stories (Naughty Bedtime Series Book 2) have devastating conseuences in their own lives Another enchanting installment in Lloyd s cozyistorical series As with the previous books it is the characterization rather than the mystery that is most appealing Much of the charm of this series is the witty banter between Lucy and the Major This as not changed now that the two are engaged and their repartee is as delightful as ever Although the investigation into the verger s death appears trivial at first it becomes interesting as the motives for is murder begin to emerge and there are one or two truly suspenseful moments That said the ultimate explanation feels somewhat contrived and the identity of the villain is a surprise mainly due to the lack of clues along the way All in all this is a wonderful series overall and this book is entertaining albeit not as good as the previous three Looking forward to of Lucy and Robert in the future The Kurland St Mary Mystery series is charming and traditional and I thought the previous books were uite uaint Death Comes to the Fair is the fourth outing in the series and unlike the previous three titles I thought this latest lost some magic At the centre of this series are Miss Lucy Harrington and Major Sir Robert Kurland who are now engaged to be married Part of the charm in the previous books was the sparring between these two characters Lucy and Robert were often at loggerheads The Problem of the Puer Aeternus (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts, 87) however after being caught in a compromising position in the previous book the two are forced to marry To be clear neither Lucy or Robert are upset about being married and perhaps this lack of tension between these two characters is what stole some of the momentum while I was reading For me the lack of tension meant a loss of interest on my part Characters are what makes or breaks a book for me and in this case I felt disappointed with the lack of character development in our principle players Unfortunately the mystery did not compensate for the lackluster showing of the main characters The mystery was simple uaint and a tad contrived If you like your mysteries cozy the formulaic approach will appeal but those looking for a meatier series should look elsewhere Having enjoyed the previous books in the series I will certainly check out the next book but I will need some change to continue to be a follower of the series Iold on to the The Art of Not Breathing hope that marriage can bring some life back into these characters I was delighted to read the 4th book in Kurland St Mary Mystery The setting is charming and the mystery was well planned and engaging I always enjoy reading about Jane and the other characters in this uaint English village and the discussion ofer upcoming wedding to Major Kurland was exciting There was a twist at the end that I didn t see coming and it made for a very satisfying conclusion I am Cupcakes, Lies, and Dead Guys (Annie Graceland Mystery hoping to read books in this
