DEATH COMES TO THE VILLAGE by Catherine Lloyd

Strange goings-on in the sleepy village of Kurland St. Mary brings a wounded soldier and the rector’s daughter together to solve this Regency-set mystery.

Physically wounded, but sharp-minded Major Robert Kurland returns to his village home to recuperate from Waterloo. When he glimpses a shadowy figure carrying a heavy load from his bedroom window, the tranquil town looms sinisterly.

Unable to forget the scene, Robert confides in his childhood friend, the rector’s daughter, Lucy Harrington. Lucy follows up on Robert’s suspicions, but soon real danger presents. Robert and Lucy must unearth the dark truth lurking within the village shadows to stop a killer waiting to strike again.
