#6 in the Roger the Chapman medieval mystery series, in which Roger becomes restless and sets out on a late winter selling spree and becomes trapped by a snowstorm at a country manor many miles from his home in Bristol. When not one but two murders occur, he naturally assumes that God has led him there to solve the murders and sets down to study the interested parties and puzzle out who could have and would have committed the murders. In this case, I didn't even guess the killer ahead of time though I picked up on a couple of important clues--just misinterpreted who they actually pointed to. Very enjoyable light read as always; I have enjoyed each and every one of Roger's tales, told to the reader in first person form as he recollects his younger days of travel though now an old man. Looking forward to the next--I'm having to rely mostly on my library for these as some of them seem to be only available in hardcover and quite expensive, even used, and after being on my WL here for months (years in some cases) I grew too impatient to wait! Thank goodness my library has them!
