Description

Sister Agatha and Father Selwyn make sleuthing a work of art. But will they paint themselves into a corner when they investigate the Village Art Society president's death?

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 in The Hour of Death, Jane Willan's perfectly puzzling second Sister Agatha and Father Selwyn Mystery.

        August 13, 2018
        Librarian and aspiring mystery author Sister Agatha, a Welsh Anglican nun of Gwenafwy Abbey in bucolic Pryderi, Wales, once again turns sleuth in Willan’s charming sequel to The Shadow of Death. On the eve of the Pryderi Women’s Art Society annual Christmas art show, Tiffany Reese, a daunting force in St. Anselm parish, is found dead in the parish hall, lying next to a broken tea cup. Her painting, which had been hanging on the wall, is missing. The coroner believes that Tiffany died of natural causes, but Sister Agatha is unconvinced. When strange and dangerous things begin to happen around the convent, Sister Agatha and her partner in detection, Father Selwyn, suspect that Lucy Penoyer, a young American artist, is the common thread that links them all. Willan’s loving and witty portrayal of convent life in rural Wales will delight lovers of village mysteries. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy reading about a busload of nuns riding to the rescue on Christmas Eve? Agent: Stephany Evans, FinePrint Literary.
