A thrilling read! I have yet to read a Merrily Watkins Mystery that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. The characters are very well developed as well as a view of the culture along the Welsh-English border. Merrily is baptized by fire in her developing role as Minister of Deliverance(excorcist). I have read the previous three books and they just seem to expand and get better with each one. Even though they can be read out of order, I highly recommend starting with the first one The Wine of Angels.
