The Blurb –

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.

Today is my stop on the Murder at the Abbey blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.

My thoughts – I absolutely love this series and this is the eighth book.

Cleeve Abbey is a site of interest to the historical society and it is here that Libby is drawn in to another mystery. She is loathed to spend a night ghost hunting so when a friend gets attacked she is quick to investigate.

In her usual style she gets to discovering the link between the abbey and the attack. This is one of my favourite series now, I love how the author portrays where the murders are portrayed, in this book, I could really picture the abbey and its surroundings.

Highly recommended.
