This has been my favorite book of the series thus far The focus on the personal relationships was a welcomed changed I switched from reading to audio and ove the series even now because of the narrator Cat Gould is fabulous with all the voicesaccents and this is one I definitely recommend Textbook of Wisdom listening to over reading I was delighted to read the 4th book in Kurland St Mary Mystery The setting is charming and the mystery was well planned and engaging I always enjoy reading about Jane and the other characters in this uaint English village and the discussion of her upcoming wedding to Major Kurland was exciting There was a twist at the end that I didn t see coming and it made for a very satisfying conclusion I am hoping to read books in this series I had wondered whether Death Comes to the Fair would hold up to my overly high expectations following as it did on the heels of the virtually perfect Death Comes to Kurland Hall but for the most part it succeeded in being a satisfying seuel Robert and Lucy were delightful as always and the mystery took an interesting turn into the darkong buried past of Kurland St Mary and its oldest inhabitantsIt is ironic that Robert and Lucy should find it harder to spend time alone together after they are finally betrothed particularly since they seemed to have no trouble doing so before But now that they re in In Defence of Dogs love and their constant arguments are a thing of the past ateast for now they face the obstacle of having to be uite creative in dodging Lucy s chaperones and avoiding the wrath of the rector so that they could go sleuthing together The result is some fairly amusing moments of frustration and exasperation from Robert and the sweetness of their romantic interactions when they do manage to carve out some time alone made up for their infreuency More than ever Robert and Lucy prove that they re the perfect team and I enjoyed seeing them take what they ve earnt from each other and put it into action Robert is increasingly earning to trust #Lucy s judgment diplomacy and bravery implicitly and Lucy draws strength from the Major s clear head in times of #s judgment diplomacy and bravery implicitly and Lucy draws strength from the Major s clear head in times of and his way of standing his ground Gone is the pessimistic and unsociable Robert and the Lucy who was once run roughshod by her selfish father siblings and Mrs Fielding in the first book Their character and relationship development has been so satisfying to watchThose who have found the identities of the murderers in the previous three books a ittle too easy to "guess might be pleased by how the murder mystery plays out in this story What begins as a "might be pleased by how the murder mystery plays out in this story What begins as a simple case of a murder committed over petty village rivalries is gradually revealed to have very deep roots that stretch two centuries back into the history of Kurland St Mary with a touch of village superstition for good measure Fascinating as it was however
readers were given ittle chance to know or care about the people involved and thus the resolution ofwere given Revenge (The Red Ledger little chance to know or care about the people involved and thus the resolution of case felt rather convoluted rushed and anti climatic I haveittle fondness for the criminal and would have oved to have been given a chance to experience the rush of triumph that would have come from seeing them brought to justiceI have absolutely no complaints about the note on which the book finished however so satisfying I can t wait for of Robert and Lucy s adventures and to see how their relationship continues to develop hopefully 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. .

Was An Engaging Afternoonan engaging afternoon The smoothly paced plot that centered around the history of both Kurland St Mary and Kurland St Anne The characters are now well developed and I do enjoy Sir Robert and Lucy s verbal sparring as they try to resolve the mysteries 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 The Kurland St Mary Mystery series is charming and traditional and I thought the previous books were uite uaint Death Comes to the Fair is the fourth outing in the series and unlike the previous three titles I thought this atest ost #SOME MAGIC AT THE CENTRE OF THIS SERIES ARE #magic At the centre of this series are Lucy Harrington and Major Sir Robert Kurland who are now engaged to be married Part of the charm in the previous books was the sparring between these two characters Lucy and Robert were often at oggerheads however after being caught in a compromising position in the previous book the two are forced to marry To be clear neither Lucy or Robert are upset about being married and perhaps this ack of tension between these two characters is what stole some of the momentum while I was reading For me the Divine Beauty lack of tension meant aoss of interest on my part Characters are what makes or breaks a book for me and in this case I felt disappointed with the Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone lack of character development in our principle players Unfortunately the mystery did not compensate for theackluster showing of the main characters The mystery was simple uaint and a tad contrived If you Down to the Sea in Ships li.
