The eleventh book in the Libby Sarjeant series of British murder mysteries which features a retired actress as the female sleuth and is based in the picturesque village of Steeple Martin.
Libby Sarjeant is invited to look into the provenance of a jewelled Anglo-Saxon reliquary which has appeared on a website. The nuns at St Eldreda's Abbey are curious, as it apparently contains a relic of St Eldreda herself. Libby's friend Peter obtains permission to mount a play based on St Eldreda's story in the ruins of the original monastery called, naturally, Murder in the Monastery. And then, inevitably, a real body is discovered, and Libby and her friend Fran find out that this is not the first.

Much the same
I prefer Deryn Edwards narrating these books
This narrator rather spoilt the book as it was very difficult to distinguish which character was speaking and I'm sure no-one speaks the way she had the male characters doing.
libby finds herself in another murder mystery. this time it's originally a monk who was murdered in the 1960's. but a new murder is committed after a play.
another enjoyable story where Andrew comes into his own researching a family tree, and if you have read all the other books you will know who he is.
glad to hear that patience Tomlinson is back. I was just getting used to listening to deryn Edwards.
"Not so much a cozy as a good sedative"
No. While I am a fan of the British cozy/tea cake genre, this was so boring. i did not finish the book.
No. Not any of the characters were charming or interesting to me. Patricia Wentworth is far superior.
The reader got on my nerves. I prefer British readers, but this was too shrill and the male voices annoying.
Very disappointed as I was looking forward to a new series of a cozy. I do not require fast action (in fact, loathe it) but this was just so very dry and boring.
