  • Love this series

    Another great suspense/mystery in this series. Once again Dr Ryder and Constable Trudy Loveday are paired together trying to untangle the mysterious deaths of a young girl and her boyfriend, only this time they are asked to investigate. Iris was set to be May Queen at the small town's festival, but instead she is found murdered. Her young boyfriend, David, is suspect number one and then he is also found dead, presumed to be suicide. Was it his grief and guilt over what he had done that caused him to take his own life, or was it just meant to look that way? Dr. Ryder and Trudy are baffled as unflattering information about Iris keeps coming to light, but nothing seems to point to who may have killed her. But once again, when they get too close to the truth, things turn dangerous for Trudy and Clement. I love the characters and their investigative ways. Looking forward to the next book in this series. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  • Another great read!

    law-enforcement, procedural, cosy-mystery, small-town, England, murder, murder-investigation, whodunit***** With Faith Martin's mysteries I never know for sure if I should classify as procedural or cosy, all I know is that I've never read one that didn't keep my eyes to the page until finished (regardless of the hour). This series involves the talents of WPC Loveday and former surgeon, now coroner, Dr. Ryder working to find the truth of the deaths ably described in the publisher's blurb. It is set in 1964 in England near Oxford, but good police work knows no borders or year. And it is the due diligence that brings the right murderer to court. Excellent! I requested and received a free temporary ebook from HQ Stories/Harper Collins UK via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A Fantastic Read!

    WPC Trudy Loveday and Coroner Clement Ryder are back in this sixth instalment of the series by Faith Martin. In A Fatal Affair, May Day is upon the village of Middle Fenton, a quiet and peaceful village in England. The birds are singing and there is a crowd gathering around Magdalen Tower waiting for the celebrations to start. The choristers are ready on top of the college building and the Morris Dancers are waiting nearby for the dancing to begin. Margaret Bellham, a May Day Committee member is headed for the village green. She is responsible for overseeing the May Day Procession including organising those preparing the food for the picnic and ensuring that the village maypole is ready for the maypole dancing by all the village maidens. As she steps towards the stone maypole she sees the May Queen the villagers voted for, seventeen-year-old Iris Carmody with the coloured ribbons that hung from the crown of the maypole wrapped tightly around her body, her neck a mass of dark bruises. A week later, David Finch is found hanging in a barn and many believe that David committed suicide because of the murder of his girlfriend, Iris... A Fatal Affair kept me on my toes throughout as I devoured each chapter. I adored being in the company of Trudy Loveday again who I find to be enthusiastic, feisty, considerate and, at times stubborn. Ryder is a man who has experienced his fair share of life - someone of a certain age who has lived a little. Set in the 1960s, Faith Martin's writing is so good and her style is a great fit for me, helping to tempt me into the story. There was plenty going on which kept my attention throughout and I never once felt bored. With a handy supply of colourful supporting characters, the mystery itself was sound and there was always something going on to keep my attention focused. The clues, twists and red herrings were cleverly placed and with nothing as it seemed and secrets aplenty, the story was super exciting. This has left me wanting to read the first two books of the series, as well as eagerly anticipating the next instalment. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from HQ Digital via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A Fatal Affair

    Set at an interesting period, with memorable and likeable lead characters, this is a good addition to the 'Fatal' series.

  • A Fatal Affair

    I like Faith Martin's books I have read I believe all or most of them. I know there are some I have missed but Koblo or Walmart don't seem to carry the ones I am missing.
