The Perfect October Read

Trick or Murder with autumn leaves
Available in paperback and ebook

For the month that ends in Halloween, Trick or Murder? provides the perfect fall/autumn read.

The residents of the Cotswold village of Wendlebury Barrow are outraged when Mr Neep, the strange new vicar, bans their Halloween celebrations. When he tries to win their favour by inviting them instead to burn effigies in his back garden at a traditional Bonfire Night party, Sophie Sayers smells danger. Can Sophie uncover important village secrets and avert disaster at the vicarage? You’ll have to read it to find out…

As always in this series, there are plenty of laughs, and some touching moments as Sophie and Hector’s relationship develops. We also get better acquainted with other favourite characters from Best Murder in Show and meet some fun new friends.
