The Poisoned Chalice Murder: A 1920s English mystery by Diane Janes

Tom's aunt asks him to come and look into a local murder.  He brings his detecting companion and they start asking questions and seeing what they can see.  They get answers but it doesn't tell them who the killer is...

Severn House and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 1st.

One thing they notice is that the victims had complained to the bishop about the current priest in their church.  Some people think their deaths are an act of God.  Tom and Frances don't agree.

Tom and Frances are in love, but Tom married his brother's girlfriend to save her the embarrassment of having an illegitimate child.  Frances is divorcing her husband who is living with another woman and has gotten her pregnant.  At this point, it doesn't look good for Tom or Frances to have a relationship.

They go home with no answers but Frances visits with her girlfriend, Mo, and they finally figure it out.

Don't get too rabid over your beliefs...
