Enjoyable read. The author gives you a great view of life in a small village during WWII England with plenty of Yanks around town to upset the natural order of society. Its a definite cozy, no graphic violence, a good mystery and an interesting heroine.

MEET ELIZABETH HARTLEIGH COMPTON. SHE'S THE HOUSE-RICH, MONEY-POOR KEEPER OF THE MANOR -- AND KEEPER OF THE PEACE... In WWII England, the quiet village of Sitting Marsh is faced with food rations and fear for loved ones. But Elizabeth Hartleigh Compton, lady of the Manor House, stubbornly insists that life must go on. Sitting Marsh residents depend on Elizabeth to make sure things go smoothly. Which means everything from sorting out gossip to solving the occasional murder...

As respected guardian of Sitting Marsh, Elizabeth knows she shouldn't be entertaining impure thoughts about Major Earl Monroe -- especially with resentment against the Yanks building throughout the village. But she can't help it -- until she finds herself distracted by the mysterious deaths of four American servicemen. It turns out each victim had red hair, spent his last night alive at the Tudor Arms, and died by poisoning. Now, Elizabeth must root out who's behind the murders -- and why -- before another soldier succumbs to the killer's dark poison...

The Manor House series, known for its old-fashioned appeal, offers readers a mixture of village charm, lively characters, and imaginative mysteries. It?s a winning mix for Kingsbury.
In _Berried Alive_, Lady Elizabeth Compton wants to see the American Major more. Polly wants to see the Three Musketeers and the Manor House ghosts less. Sadie wants others to see Winnie Churchill, like she did. And Violet wants Martin to ?just see.?

Major Earl and Lady Compton eventually do spend more time together, but mostly due to the deaths of four American servicemen. Everyone at Sitting Marsh can feel the animosity building between the Brit and US soldiers. The Americans are based at Sitting Marsh for England?s protection, but some resent their occupation. Tense moments, pranks, and fights are expected, but not four murders in a row. Lady E., feeling responsible for the actions of Sitting Marsh, investigates the deaths and comes up with the possible conclusions.

The folks at Sitting Marsh and the Manor are feeling love struck, spooked, some what muddled, and definitely temperamental. Only Lady E., with the comfort and guidance of the Major, can keep them on track. But for how long? Lady E. maybe responsible and generous, but she also has feelings. And right now her emotions are quietly wrapped up in one man, who gives her some startling news once the mystery is solved.

_Berried Alive_ is mystery number six. Clues are scattered throughout; the twists are as curvy as Sitting Marsh?s dirt roads, and the surprise conclusion is well hidden. When all is said and done, series readers will be left with a Manor House cliff hanger?. Don?t miss it!
