#BlogTour The Manor House Murder by Faith Martin @faithmartin_nov @books_n_all @joffebooks #teamjoffe #MonicaNoble

Today I am very pleased to be closing the blog tour for Faith Martin’s latest re-release The Manor House Murders, which she previously published under hwr Joyce Cato brand. Thanks to Joffe Books for republishing it and Jill Burkinshaw for organising the blog tour.

About the Book

The Manor House Murder
Meet Monica Noble: the vicar’s wife with a taste for solving crimes.

Please note this book was first published as “AN UNHOLY SHAME” under Faith Martin’s pen name JOYCE CATO.

THE WEEKEND TURN MURDEROUS
Monica Noble and her husband Graham, the local vicar, are invited to participate in a high-flying church conference being held at a swanky manor house hotel in their village.

At the Saturday night dinner, the ambitious female cleric Celia Gordon tragically dies, seemingly of a peanut allergy.

But when Chief Superintendent Jason Dury arrives on the scene he quickly discovers that it’s a case of murder.

And Monica’s husband is the prime suspect.

Other suspects include an eminent bishop, an archdeacon viciously opposed to female clergy, and his wife, the curator of a local museum, who is definitely up to something.

But if Monica is to find out who killed Celia, and free her husband from suspicion, she must grapple with a very ruthless — and increasingly desperate — killer, putting herself and those around her in mortal danger.

This is the third of a series of enjoyable murder mysteries with great characters and baffling crimes which will keep you gripped till the final page.

Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, and J.R. Ellis.

MONICA NOBLE was widowed young, leaving her to raise her feisty daughter on her own. That is, until she met and fell in love with Graham Noble, a country vicar (pastor), who enticed her to leave her high-flying job in advertising in the city and move to the Cotswold countryside. There she found bucolic life very pleasant indeed — until murder started to rear its ugly head. And she discovered, to everyone’s surprise, that she had a flair for solving the most unholy of crimes.

FAITH MARTIN is the million-selling author of the DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE and JENNY STARLING mysteries, which have topped the global best-seller charts.

My Review

This is the third, and final, book in the Monica Noble series, and this time things get very personal for her when her husband is chief suspect in a murder investigation.

Monica amd her husband are invited to a manor house where her husband, Graham, has been asked to do a talk.

During the evening one of the guests dies under mysterious circumstances, although it is originally classed as not murder as she has a peanut allergy and died from that.

One of the main suspects is Graham as he has history with the deceased and was seen eating peanuts earlier in the evening. Due to this Monica has to investigate and prove his Innocence.

There is another murder later on and the police are extremely suspicious of Monicca as she always turns up in the wrong place at the wrong time so Monica has to do all the work herself.

I am a bit sad this is the last book as I was just getting into this series and was looking forward to seeing where it would go in the long run, but I’m glad I read them and enjoyed them.
