This is the second book in the Hugh de Singleton series. I did not read the first one but I did not feel lost in the least.
In this book there a few different mysteries. The beadle, the one that maintains curfew, died at St. Andrew's Chapel. Some believe that he was killed by a wolf but not Hugh. Other mysteries appear but Hugh is able to handle them with his investigative skills.
The color of the village comes through in the descriptions that are used by Mel Starr, including the medicinal herbs, feasts and more. Such a wonderful book to fall into.
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
