Meet Monica Noble: the vicar’s wife with a taste for solving crimes.
Please note this book was first published as An Unholy Mess under Faith Martin’s pen name Joyce Cato.
In a quiet Cotswold village, all hell is about to break loose.
Monica Noble is throwing a party to welcome the village’s new residents. The guests include Margaret and her cheating husband Sean. Also on the list are a celebrity chef, an Oxford university professor, a 40-something divorcee, and the owner of a chain of gyms.
Then as the drinks are flowing, a shotgun blast rings out. One of the guests is found dead.
DCI Dury and Sergeant Jim Greer are soon on the scene and discover that the victim had many enemies. Almost all the guests harbor secrets and motives for murder. Even Monica’s daughter comes under suspicion.
When another villager is strangled to death nearly a week later, the stakes are raised.
Can Monica help the local detectives save her daughter and solve the murders before anyone else pays the ultimate price?
This is the first of a series of enjoyable murder mysteries with great characters and baffling crimes which will keep you gripped till the final minute.
Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, and J.R. Ellis.

Loved it !
Undiscovered series by one of my favourite writers 🙂
Was drawn immediately into the scenario ……characters and their personalities.
The murder was a tricky one to figure out and the suspects entered and left the frame .
Thoroughly enjoyed this mystery and just stated No 2 in the series .

There were a lot of characters introduced in the first chapters. But they were extremely well written and came vividly to life. So not too hard to hold the thread of who was who. The setting was interesting, a converted vicarage containing many self contained flats and intriguing characters within. The narration was excellent.

Enjoyed the story, but...
I was going to give up on this audio book - lots of characters, who were introduced in the first chapter and I had difficulty differentiating between them. Nevertheless, I stuck with it and enjoyed the story - easy listening, gentle whodunit, and bit of a twist at the end.
