Synopsis

The Brand NEW instalment in the bestselling Exham-on-Sea series.An unsolved murder echoes down the corridors of Cleeve Abbey for years. The Exham-on-Sea's History Society's annual summer picnic comes to an abrupt end when human bones are discovered in Washford River, beside historic Cleeve Abbey.

Thrilled to find evidence of a possible centuries-old murder mystery, the members of the society organise a ghost-hunting night in the ruins of Cleeve Abbey, despite amateur sleuth Libby Forest's reservations.

Libby is a woman of many talents, a baker, chocolatier, even a reluctant sleuth, but she's no fan of the supernatural.and her doubts are justified when a friend is attacked under cover of darkness at the ghost-hunt.

Distressed and angry, Libby sets out with her new husband Max and their two dogs Bear and Shipley to uncover the connection between the murder of a sixteenth century monk and a present-day attack in picturesque Somerset.

With friends and neighbours as suspects, Libby and Max close in on the culprit only to find that others are still in danger.

There's no time to lose as the sins of the past threaten lives in the community.



Murder at the Abbey is the eighth in a series of Exham-on-Sea Murder Mysteries from the small English seaside town full of quirky characters, sea air, and gossip.



If you love Agatha Christie-style mysteries, cosy crime, clever dogs and cake, then you'll love these intriguing whodunnits.'

Customer Reviews

Another gripping instalment of this top notch series! When the members of the Exham-on-Sea History Society set out for their annual picnic in the grounds of Cleve Abbey, the last thing they expected was to discover human bones – but that’s exactly what happens. With the suspicion that the bones are historic, an overnight visit to the abbey is organised to find out if it is, indeed, haunted – although not all those present are entirely at ease with the thought of ghosts. Sometime sleuth Libby Forest is one such person, and when one of the party is attacked she is both angry and upset and, along with her husband and their two dogs, sets out to get to the bottom of things. What is the connection with the bones – and who can they trust? Frances Evesham’s books are wonderfully detailed; there is an awful lot going on but it is all carefully plotted and the multiple threads are cleverly entwined. With a fine cast of characters, it was really difficult to try to sort out what was happening and, more so, to see who could possibly be responsible but, as with all good mysteries, it’s just a matter of following the clues! This is a smartly composed story, easily combining past and present into a flawless, twisted mystery. Beautifully written into an easy read, I loved everything about it from beginning to end; my mouth even watered every time cakes were mentioned! I have no hesitation in recommending this to all lovers of a really good mystery, and happily give all five stars.
