    The Kurland St. Mary mysteries are historical fiction set in England after the Napoleonic wars. Major Kurland survived the war with a shattered leg and a fear of horses. His old friend Lucy, the rector's daughter and now his wife, has patiently brought him out of his reclusive lifestyl...

    Though Robert and Lucy had their own personal demons to fight, this one redeems the previous book in my eyes. The mystery was more straightforward, and though we had many, many secondary and tertiary characters to keep track of, at least they didn't overpower the investigation. The cul...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2017/11... The fifth Kurland St Mary books finds our protagonists dealing with marital discord (after a pair of miscarriages) as well as the murder of the awful local schoolteacher, who may have been killed after writing a series of poison pen letters. ...

    I really enjoyed this latest book in what has been an uneven series for me. Catherine Lloyd?s Kurland St. Mary Regency mystery series has always had a Pride and Prejudice vibe between former Major Sir Robert Kurland and former rector?s daughter Lucy Harrington. As this mystery o...

    Fans of old-fashioned mysteries, or stories that remind you of Georgette Heyer or Jane Austen, may appreciate this fifth book in the Kurland St. Mary Mystery series. .Death Comes to the School by Catherine Lloyd is a quiet story involving class differences and role differences for boys...

    This is the fifth book in this series featuring Sir Robert Kurland and his wife Lucy. The books are mysteries with elements of a Regency romance. In this book the school teacher in the village of Kurland St. Mary is found killed as Christmas approaches, and people are receiving anonymo...

    I am a big fan of this little gem of a historical cozy, so I was anxious to read the latest installment, set three years after the marriage of Lady Lucy (the Rector's daughter) and Sir Robert Kurland (local gentry and injured war hero). Part of the charm of the series has been the evol...

    It is now December 1820, three years since Major Kurland married Lucy Harrington and all is not well. But they become distracted for a while by the discovery of a body at the estate school. One of the main reasons that I enjoy this series is the relationship between these two people, ...

    I continue to love this series. Each mystery is so compelling and manages to feel believable in this Regency village without the feeling I get with so many cozies that the plots are getting more and more absurd. But the best part is the relationship between Lucy and the Major. It is...

    I do love this series, but this was not my favorite. The book was well written and I enjoyed seeing all of the characters, but I was disappointed with the development of the relationship between Robert and Lucy. For such forthright people, all of the heartache and misunderstanding was ...

    This is truly the perfect series for those who love quiet, intelligent, period mysteries with a strong female protagonist. Lloyd's series, the Kurland St. Mary mysteries, are set in Jane Austen's era and feature perfectly rendered stories of a strong-minded, rather plain, rector's daug...

    This is a wonderful subtle calm mystery that blends the domestic with murder more successfully than most cozys. Set in a small UK village in the 1820s, it gives a sense of both time and place. Robert and Lucy are coping with so much in their new marriage, not the least of which is the ...

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC to read. Once again, I am late in my review (thanks, life) but here it is nonetheless. This is apparently the fifth in the Kurland St Mary Mystery series. It was fun, bright, intelligent and very well done. I love period ...

    The latest entry in the Kurland St. Mary series. In this, the unloved village schoolteacher comes to a bad end, and Lady Lucy and a (reluctant) Sir Robert are on the case. There's hints of blackmail, poison pen letters, and under all is the ongoing tension in the Kurland marriage. I co...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this latest entry in the Kurland mysteries. It brought a new depth to Robert and Lucy's relationship, which had to do with their difficulty in having a child. [Mild spoiler alert - I like that they didn't magically get pregnant by the end of the book. That would ha...

    1 1/2 stars. 1) This book was light on mystery and heavy on marital discord. I didn't want to read about the marital discord at all. It wasn't interesting. Also the time jump from them getting married to them being married three years wasn't the best choice in my opinion. I already ...

    The latest entry in this historic British mystery series is as entertaining as ever. In the Regency manner, two prickly made-for-each-other main characters finally married and have embarked on their life together. But it's never easy. Lord Robert and Lucy are both suffering -- he fr...

    The fifth in the Kurkland St. Mary series, this mystery was still as enjoyable as the earlier novels. Lucy and Robert have now been married for three years. Lucy is depressed and recovering after a second miscarriage. With upcoming holidays, Lucy breaks away from the constraints on her...

    This book is delightfully familiar. Robert is being grouchy, Lucy is being managing, Penelope is being snappy, the rector is being obnoxiously clueless, and someone is saying something outrageous about the role of women at least once. But honestly, I don't read these books because I ex...

    I love the premise of this series, but the execution of this one didn?t quite live up to it for me. Mystery-wise, I felt the plot line of the letters wasn?t really fully explored, and the denouement came quite out of the blue (sometimes that?s a good thing, but I felt in this cas...
