Publisher's Summary

Tobias Campion, rector of Moreton St Jude, is delighted to welcome the widowed Lady Chase as his parishioner. Although charming and generous-spirited, she harbours a secret sorrow: her son, Hugo, is missing, presumed dead. Her late husband's nephew, Sir Marcus Bramhall, making a prolonged, unwelcome visit to Moreton Hall, speaks darkly of bringing a court case to declare him the heir. Then Miss Southey, the Bramhall family's ill-treated governess, disappears on the very day that the body of a stranger is found in a local river. When it transpires that the man might have been bringing news of the missing heir, Tobias and his loyal groom, Jem Turbeville, are forced to quit their beloved village to uncover the truth.

Delightful

Great mystery. Good characters. Very well narrated. Reminds me of Grandchester only the 1800s instead of the 1940s.

Secrets

This is part 2 of this series. The characters are developed and another murder is the beginning of this detective story set in the early years of the 19th century in a small rural Warwickshire village. Unlike Jane Austin's writing much more is made of the sufferings of the poor of the parish although the groaning tables of the dinners of the gentry are not forgotten either.

I enjoyed the characters, the social history and the narrator, although find him sometimes annoyingly chirpy

I am going to download the next in this comfortable series set in a past where medicine, policing and religious attitudes are so different from today

Shadow of the Past

Not as well read as 'Keeper of Secrets' but an enjoyable, well written Georgian mystery - not too heavy or to light; good for listening to while doing the housework.
