about

In Catherine Lloyd''s eighth Regency-set Kurland St. Mary Mystery, murder casts a dark shadow over the christening of Major Sir Robert Kurland and Lady Lucy''s daughter Elizabeth--even more so when Lucy''s own father, the rector, falls under suspicion for the crime...

However, not everyone is happy about the news, in particular Rose''s adult daughter Henrietta and her husband, who fear for their inheritance.

The next morning, he is found in the rector''s study, stabbed through the heart with an antique letter opener, clutching a note that appears to implicate the rector himself.

As the local justice of the peace, Robert has an obligation to remain unbiased in his investigation of the ghastly crime, even though his prime suspect is a man of the cloth and his wife''s father. But Lucy is under no such obligation. As snow traps the members of the christening party in Kurland St. Mary, she vows to clear her father''s name and bring the cold-blooded culprit to justice. Someone had better start saying their prayers...
