Body in the Transept
By Jeanne M. Dams
Walker and Company, 1995. 205 pgs. Mystery
Dorothy Martin has moved from America to Britain, fulfilling her late husbands’ dream of retiring there. Adjusting to her new life as a widow and foreigner, Dorothy searches for a way to be more involved in the community, but she hadn’t plan on finding a dead body at church on Christmas Eve to do the trick.
I enjoyed the sensibility of the main characters and look forward to reading the next book in the series. This 1995 Agatha Award for Best First Novel is a great read-a-like for those who enjoy the Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman.
