Publisher's Summary

The eleventh book in the Libby Sarjeant series of British murder mysteries which features a retired actress as the female sleuth and is based in the picturesque village of Steeple Martin.
Libby Sarjeant is invited to look into the provenance of a jewelled Anglo-Saxon reliquary which has appeared on a website. The nuns at St Eldreda's Abbey are curious, as it apparently contains a relic of St Eldreda herself. Libby's friend Peter obtains permission to mount a play based on St Eldreda's story in the ruins of the original monastery called, naturally, Murder in the Monastery. And then, inevitably, a real body is discovered, and Libby and her friend Fran find out that this is not the first.

Not so much a cozy as a good sedative

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. While I am a fan of the British cozy/tea cake genre, this was so boring. i did not finish the book.


Would you recommend Murder in the Monastery to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Not any of the characters were charming or interesting to me. Patricia Wentworth is far superior.


What didn’t you like about Patience Tomlinson’s performance?

The reader got on my nerves. I prefer British readers, but this was too shrill and the male voices annoying.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.


Any additional comments?

Very disappointed as I was looking forward to a new series of a cozy. I do not require fast action (in fact, loathe it) but this was just so very dry and boring.
