A new author for me, the first book of a new series featuring Sister Agatha finds her writing a detective story. There are only 19 sisters left in the Welch Anglican convent. The descriptions of area and characters were good. The writing did not flow smoothly and the story jump between characters. This made it difficult to follow the narrative and many commonplace says were used. Two themes are present and not connected to make one story. The church sexton is found dead under a rack of Gouda cheese. The constable considered it an accidental death. Sister Agatha believes it is murder and decided to investigate the death. Second, involved the latest sister and someone wants the acreage for a spa.
