The girls come across murder as they putter around a garden...
16 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

The stories in this series are becoming increasingly familiar. Once again, FELICITY KENDAL and PAM FERRIS are working to restore a church garden to its former glory before a festival takes place, when they discover a man impaled by an arrow at the foot of an ancient yew tree.

Naturally, the little town where the festival is being prepared has a bunch of archers waiting to practice their sport for the medieval ceremony. Any one of them could have a reason for wanting to kill the man who was fighting them over property rights.

If it all sounds familiar, it is. But everything happens in bright sunlight in beautiful surroundings, the acting is uniformly excellent, the clues are few and far between, and the denouement is far from being predictable when the least likely suspect is revealed to be the murderer.

Another fun episode with the usual good dose of humor thrown into the mix.
