    1 thought on “Who Killed the Curate?”

    1. This book follows two story lines. The most obvious, of course, is in the title. Who, indeed, killed the curate? By the time you have finished the book, you will have the answer. The second, and much more interesting story line, follows the seemingly empty-headed, twenty-one year old socialite Lady Lupin after she meets and quickly marries a man no one would have ever thought she would find attractive. The man in question is a 43 year old vicar of a small church in a small town. This second stor [...]

    2. I rang out the old, and rang in the new with a mystery set during Christmas 1937 and featuring the incomparable Lady Lupin Lorrimar (Honestly, can you beat a name like that?), the scatterbrained sleuth and wife of much older (43! Gasp! That is old!) and handsome vicar, Andrew Hastings. The novel from 1944, nicely skewers small town village life as Lupin cluelessly navigates the nuances of being a vicar’s wife as she attempts to solve a murder while balancing a tiresome schedule of meetings for [...]

    3. Who Killed the Curate?Joan CogginThe Rue Morgue Press, 2001ISBN 0915230445Trade PaperbackIt’s Christmas 1937 and the small English village of Glanville is gearing up for the festivities. Central to the villages activities is Lady Lupin, the lovely scatterbrained wife of Andrew, vicar of St. Marks Parish. Lady Lupin, having come from a world of wealth and entitlement, is eager to fit in as the vicar’s wife but is totally bewildered by the Girl Guides, the Mothers’ Union, and all the other p [...]

    4. This, the first in Joan Coggin's series is a little gem of a mystery. Lady Lupin is a somewhat slightly young woman who marries a handsome vicar and starts a new way of life. While she appears to be a light weight she actually dives into the village life with full intentions of being a good vicars wife. In just a few days she has to meet so many people and be part of so many committees, organizations and groups her head is swimming. So is the readers for that fact. We get confused right along wi [...]

    5. This novel features Bright Young Things Between the Wars, a favourite genre of mine. Lady Lupin is a wonderful character, a brainless blonde and London socialite who marries a vicar twice her age. Theirs is a genuine love match, but "Loops" is hopeless as a vicar's wife. She drinks, smokes, receives visitors in her dressing gown until around noon, and is determined to have few if any babies. The vicar thinks she's adorable and couldn't care less. What "Loops" does have is a memory like a steel t [...]

    6. A completely ditzy-blonde society deb-type marries a vicar, moves to his small-town, and finds herself embroiled in mystery when his curate is murdered on Christmas Eve. There’s illegitimate children and blackmail and poison and a secret service agent…and so much more.Quick easy read. Lots of fun! If you like old mysteries (Agatha Christie?) or new mysteries written like those of old (Jacqueline Winspear or the Laurie King Russell/Holmes series) then you need to check out the offerings from [...]

    7. This is a pretty decent mystery and if the heroine was just a trifle less thick, I would have liked it a lot more. She's charming and very nice, even funny at times, but the dim bulb bit is just too over the top and I found it annoying. I do not plan to try any of the other books in the series.

    8. While there was SOME humor, it was not laugh a minute as with some and it was certainly not enough to keep my attention. Not very well executed in my opinion.
