Summary

Sister Agatha and Father Selwyn make sleuthing a work of art. But will they paint themselves into a corner when they investigate the Village Art Society president's death?

As yuletide settles upon Gwenafwy Abbey, the rural Welsh convent's peace is shattered when Tiffany Reese, president of the Village Art Society, is found dead on the floor of the parish hall. Sister Agatha, whose interests lie more with reading and writing mystery stories than with making the abbey's world-renowned organic gouda, is not shy about inserting herself into the case. With the not-entirely eager assistance of Father Selwyn, she begins her investigation.

Sister Agatha has no shortage of suspects to check off her naughty-or-nice list, until finally, Tiffany's half-brother, Kendrick Geddings, emerges as the prime suspect. There never was any love lost between Tiffany and Kendrick, and of late, they had been locked in a vicious battle for control of the family estate. But if Sister Agatha thinks she has the case wrapped up, she'll have to think again. 

As the days of Advent tick by, Sister Agatha is determined to crack the case by Christmas in The Hour of Death, Jane Willan's perfectly puzzling second Sister Agatha and Father Selwyn mystery.

Just what I needed!

Amidst the toil and turmoil of these crazy days, I found the two books in this series an amazing escape. The characters are lovable, the setting perfect, and the narration is perfect! Oh yes, the mystery is intriguing as well! :)

Yes, this is a step away from my hard line favorites. Thoroughly enjoyable
cast from the Min Pin (my favorite dog) to a convent filled with detective wanna be amateurs chasing clues, suspects while wondering how Agatha Christie and the new famous
inspector Gamache would handle the sticky situations the women get into.
The author creates lovely mind pictures, the narrator does a fine job and entertained me with a few un- usual pronunciations. Gouda cheese is now gowda cheese. I will give a listen to the previous book even though there is no MinPin in it.

Agatha,Anglicans and Angels equals Awesome!

I love the combination of mystery, Church life with the Welsh culture. This Southern Episcopalian mystery fan is in high cotton!

Really clever cozy

This one was a great surprise. Thanks, Audible. I’ll look for more by the fascinating author, whose references to Gamache, Plum and Milhone are priceless. The narrator was excellent. More, please.

Enchanting Characters and Charming Story

What a TREAT Jane Willan’s cozy mysteries are - and Helen Lloyd’s narration is SUPERB! The characters are serenely hilARious and Willan’s ecumenical progressive Christian underpinnings are waaay beYOND refreshing after the dreadful past four years we have endured over here in the US from Trump and his red hat racist white evangelical Christian-in-name-only.pals.

Love it

Have fallen in love with Sister Agatha & Father Selwyn and the convent of Gwenabwy. Always richly drawn characters and a great plot that keeps you guessing til the end. I hope to hear more of this small Welsh village.
