From Publishers Weekly:
A tidy, inventive and intricate plot graced with lovely scenic descriptions highlights Granger's ( Murder Among Us ) fifth village mystery set in the Cotswolds, this one tracing themes of longing and fear of loss. Chief Inspector Alan Markby still yearns for Meredith Mitchell of the Foreign Office (she loves him too but wants to live alone). Heartbreak also shadows the the lives of Brian Felston and his Uncle Lionel, crusty bachelors whose farm is the site of an ancient battlefield where archeologists are seeking the grave of Wulfric the Saxon. Several of the diggers also suffer from star-crossed love, as do some of the scruffy hippies who infuriate everyone by setting up a messy camp on the farm. Meredith gets involved when her old friend Ursula, working on the dig, suddenly becomes terrified that her former lover may have murdered his missing wife, and Markby steps in when corpses of decidedly recent vintage start to surface. A master of characterization, Granger specializes in engaging eccentrics, and she has a winner here--an irresistible old codger who lives at the local dump.

I found that book in a COOP while walking the West Highland Way. It was my travel mate also on Great Glen Way and the first day of Speyside Way. I liked the fresh style of writing, seldom I had to laugh so much while reading a crime story. But I also was fascinated of the sad characters like Finny, Ann Granger is able to describe people so good, that I saw them right in front of me.

Falls ich es nachher schaffe, mich aus dem Villehaus zu verdrücken, bringe ich dieses Buch zum BC-Treffen ins Goldmund mit.

Taken from Sillesoeren at the Cologne Meetup at the "Goldmund".
Da habe ich ja Glück gehabt...
Nachdem ich es rein auf Sillesoerens Empfehlung beim Kölner Meetup eingepackt habe, ohne auch nur einen wirklichen Blick darauf zu werden, habe ich erst jetzt beim Eintragen festgestellt, dass es ein Buch aus der Mitchell und Markby Serie ist. Und zwar das fünfte, wenn ich das richtig sehe.
Prima, ein kurzer Check meines Shelfs ergibt, dass ich 1-4 sowie 12 und 13 kenne, also grade passend.
Somit erhöht sich die Chance doch in relativ kurzer Zeit gelesen zu werden immens. Wobei relativ kurz rein relativ zu sehen ist ;-)

Ein Jahr = Ein Land:

Yes, it was a pleasure as always.
I liked especially the parts with Meredith and her "flatmate" ;-)
There was a growing desire just knock him out....

The mystery itself was a good one with different paths to follow...
Give me more ;-)

And again it is guest at the Cologne Meetup. /Und wieder mal auf dem Kölner-Meetup-Tisch gelandet.

Habe das Buch eben beim Koelner MeetUp im Goldmund eingesackt.
Nachdem ich es zweimal von Feodoras Stapel ziehen musste hab ichs beim drittenmal lieber sofort im Rucksack versenkt. Sicher ist sicher. ;o)

Liked it. A good plot and interesting characters (Babelfish translates "komischer Vogel" in "amusing bird". Well, there are some of them :o)).
