Murder by Magic: A Libby Sarjeant Murder Mystery Paperback – 28 May 2019
Libby Sarjeant and her friend Fran Wolfe are asked to look into the sudden and unexplained death of a devoted churchgoer. The police appear to have lost interest, but the villagers are certain that their new lady vicar has something to do with it!
But if it is murder, how on earth was it done? There doesn’t seem to be any rational explanation. And as everyone knows, ‘whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth’. But could it really be magic?

About the Author
Like many authors, Lesley started writing stories as a child. After a checquered beginning, including jobs as varied as actor, model, cabin crew and nightclub DJ, she fell into feature writing for publications including Business Matters, Which Computer and Poultry Farmers Weekly.
She progressed to short stories for the vibrant Women's magazine market and, following a Master's Degree where she met her publisher, she turned to her first literary love of Traditional British Mysteries. The Libby Sarjeant series is still going strong, and has been joined by The Alexandrians, an Edwardian mystery series.
Lesley also continues to work with her local theatre, which often finds its way into her books.

This is a fascinating and well written story which shows how the prejudice against female vicars can lead to totally unwarranted conclusions. I enjoyed the picture of village life and the way rumours can grow out of all proportion. It also shows how ordinary people can hide things from the police for no real reason.
This is a well written and enjoyable crime series featuring some lovable and interesting characters. If you like crime novels set in rural areas with little on the page violence then you may enjoy this book and this series.
