I always enjoy [a:Susanna Gregory|37774|Susanna Gregory|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1316288895p2/37774.jpg]’s Matthew Bartholomew mysteries. Like visiting friends, I knew what to expect from [b:A Wicked Deed|211287|A Wicked Deed (Matthew Bartholomew, #5)|Susanna Gregory|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1332327020s/211287.jpg|1370928] but I love the characters Matthew Bartholomew, a teaching physician, and Brother Michael both members of the College of Michaelhouse at the University of Cambridge. This is a tale of the scholars of Michaelhouse traveling to the village Grudisburh in Suffolk to accept the gift of a parish church. I know that Ms. Gregory’s writing can get a bit repetitive, well maybe a lot repetitive and I might have figured out the” who” before the end but I love the pictures she paints. Why both Michael and Matthew kept making excuses against murder with all the dead people in such a small village was beyond me and a bit annoying. This was not one of my favorite Matthew Bartholomew tales but it won’t stop me from moving on to number 6 in the series when I feel a “history mystery” attack coming on.
