Description

Jane Willan's The Hour of Death will be a Christmas delight for fans of G. M. Malliet, set on an island in Wales. 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.

        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.

        August 1, 2018
        A Welsh nun with a passion for murder investigations sees every suspicious death as a case to solve.Sister Agatha of Gwenafwy Abbey reads detective fiction and watches Midsomer Murders, and she's also busy writing a murder mystery of her own. Agatha already has a claim to fame since helping solve a murder at the abbey (The Shadow of Death, 2018). Now the villagers of Pryderi are in a bother over plans to build housing in a lovely meadow between the village and the abbey, but even that outrage is put aside when Tiffany Reese, the very model of annoying perfection, is found dead in the church hall with the painting she'd planned to enter in the annual art show--where she'd won first prize last year--gone missing. Constable Barnes, who thinks Tiffany had a heart attack, refuses to do an autopsy, but Sister Agatha, knowing how many enemies Tiffany had made with her high-handed ways, starts her own investigation with the help of Father Selwyn and some of the nuns at the abbey. Even the abbey's paying guest, young artist Lucy Pennoyer, gets dragged into the investigation when her dog is stolen and left in a crate in a frozen field. There are too many suspects for Agatha, who labors to find alibis and motives. Strange notes with Wizard of Oz references left for Lucy only raise the stakes as Agatha tries to keep up with the abbey's pre-Christmas cheese orders while hunting down a killer.The second entry in this charming series poses no great challenges for mystery buffs but is peopled with plenty of interesting characters and local color.
