Catherine Lloyd È 1 FREE READ FREE READ Ì Death Comes to the Fair It's harvest time in the village of Kurland St Mary as Lucy and Robert prepare to wed but a murderer has taken an unseasonable vow of vengeance As Miss Lucy Harrington daughter of the village rector and Major Sir Robert Kurland plan their nuptials the major is beginning to wonder if he'll ever hear wedding bells He's Lucy and Robert can t wait to be married but Lucy s relatives insist on taking over the wedding planning to have a grand society wedding in London something the happy couple doesn t want Lucy is busy running the harvest fair in the village and trying to ensure no one s feelings are hurt Robert has other ideas and insists judging based on merit When the verger wins all the produce prizes the villagers are upset Robert thinks they ll get over it but when the verger ends up dead Lucy isn t so sure Only she believes Mr Ezekiel Thurrock was murdered and Robert believes in Lucy Could it be his brother Mr Nathaniel Thurrock killed his own brother for some reason Mr Nathaniel is a newcomer to the village and wants to delve into the Kurland estate archives Has he discovered a secret When Lucy and Robert start their own investigation into the village s past they uncover long buried secrets and simmering resentment that dates back generations Is a generation feud enough to kill Meanwhile as Lucy and Robert are trying to investigate the murder at all hours and carve out some alone time her reputation takes a nose dive Does she care what gossipy villagers say or is this the opportunity she needs to take charge of her life once and for allWow This was the best book in the series I never ever even suspected whodunnit There are so many twists in this story and not enough suspects Lucy failed to pick up on one clue she should have paid attention to but other than that I was just as shocked as Lucy to discover the identity of the murderer I loved learning the history of Kurland St Mary from the English Civil War to the present year of 1817 I learned a bit of British history and saw the English Civil War from a different perspective I also loved learning about so called wise women herbals and charms they used My only uibble was Lucy s usage of Romany for the people her father would probably refer to as Gypsies I wanted of the Romany in the story but it s otherwise excellent This book also features an adorable romance I love Lucy and Robert together He understands she s bossy and nosy but loves her for it Though at times he s very much a man of his time and station he loves Lucy and wants her to be happy so he follows her lead She accepts Robert for who is he He can be grumpy and sometimes too authoritative his politics are very radical but that makes him appealing Robert s political views are very democratic Maybe they ll end up settling in America some day I love the way they investigate together and support each other as they go along Their views of weddings are also similar It says a lot about Robert that he s willing to marry her even if the situation is not ideal Lucy supports Robert and keeps uiet about his PTSD fear of horses and his physical limitations She helps him function normally in a society that REALLY REALLY loves horsesThe major supporting characters include the Thurrock brothers Mr Ezekiel is the much loved verger of the village This seems to be some sort of clergy job but they never explain what he did exactly He isn t in the story long enough to know if he is an appealing character His brother on the other hand is supremely awful He is a bully demeans Lucy and women in general and is generally unpleasant His arrival in the village sets off a wave of old memories that die hard Robert s ex fiance Penelope Chingford is a major supporting character At first she seems nice but then she goes back to being nasty I was a little surprised at her plot but not entirely Her sister barely has anything to do but tag along as chaperone Lucy s father mostly seems uncaring but deep down he loves Lucy He just has antiuated ideas about women meaning he s a typical man of his time The downstairs characters appear often here Lucy is training Betty to be a ladies maid and I really liked Betty She s hardworking intelligent and loyal to Lucy unlike Maisey and Mrs Fielding Mrs F is insolent and lazy She s training Maisie to be just as lazy I felt bad for Maisie because she doesn t seem very bright and seems afraid of everythingThe village families are important characters There are two main families who work for Robert The Mallards are a large village family The men work on the estate and seem nice Robert values them not just for their work but also for being intelligent and not bowing and scraping to him There is also the Pethridge family They seem a little ignorant than the Mallards and young Martin doesn t come across as very bright He doesn t seem to know how to think for himself or hold his tongue when necessary Finally there s the Turners They are two sisters who live on land they own and make a living as wise women and midwives What they do is harmless and makes ignorant people feel better about their worries They also help safely deliver babies I d trust a wise woman over an educated doctor of this period any day Since they re single independent women of course they get labeled witches and other insulting epithets The upper class people are afraid of them and men are afraid of the power they have as independent women I especially liked them since that would be me if I lived back then and lacked money and family connections They may have been my favorite secondary characters This is such an amazing series The research is top notch and the stories get better as they go along I d recommend this series to any Regency fanatic or light mystery fan Rappin' With Ten Thousand Carabaos in the Dark Poems judging based on merit When the verger wins all the produce prizes the villagers are upset
