9780002740746: Murder at the Altar (Ellie Quicke Mystery Series #1)

The couple argue next door, the boy next door seems to know more than he is saying, and the murder victim's mother is missing. This first in a series of mysteries is set in a church, and features Ellie Quicke, a recently widowed woman who finds herself to be something of a sleuth.

From the Publisher:

Two days after the funeral of her husband, Frank, Ellie Quicke feels immobilized by grief. Then the respectable Mrs. Dawes rushes to Ellie's door to announce she's just discovered the body of a young man at the church altar. Ellie soon becomes involved in the mystery surrounding the victim's murder, the subsequent disappearance of his mother and the disturbing quarrels of the young couple next door. Simultaneously, she examines her own life and, with a new confidence and strength, is able to stand up to Frank's bullying Aunt Drusilla and her own spoiled daughter, Diana. Life without Frank will not be predictable and safe, but it will certainly be more exciting. Heley's keen observations and insights into her characters create the rich atmosphere of an English village. Combining sparkling wit and humor, quirky acts of fate and a dramatic ending, Heley provides all one needs for a satisfying read, except perhaps a cozy chair, a cup of tea and some chocolate biscuits.

About the Author:

Veronica Heley is the author of numerous books, and has published with Corgi and Frances Lincoln, amongst others. This is the first time in many years she has turned her pen to adult crime.
