Village Secrets book. Normally Rebecca Shaw's books are feel good reading for me. I enjoy her gentle portraits of life in small town England. This one had a mean spiritedness directed toward non-Anglicans that bothered me and distracted from my expected enjoyment. Books like this are almost as comforting as tea and toast, and that's not just because of the que village map at the start of the book.

The village school is in need of a new teacher, and to fill the void Kate Pascoe is hired. Totally different from the former headmaster, Kate has new fangled ideas for how the school should be run (technology, *gasp*), which alienates her from some of the residents. However, her troubles have just begun, as she becomes embroiled in a dark side of village life.

Quote: "But someone has to get rid of these people, haven't they - and who better than me?"

I must say that while I still enjoy this series, this particular novel is one of my least favorites of the bunch. A little too much shadiness with new characters distracts focus from the story lines with the main villagers that are much more interesting. It is one of those books in a series you just read (if you're compulsive like me) because you can't skip one before moving onto the next.

I've read almost all of the relaxing Fairacre series by Miss Read, so I was hoping for a similar vein... Well, I'm not sure what to say. I was bored at first b/c I was used to different characters. Took another dive a month later and it started to pick up. Things got intriguing, if a bit melodramatic. Then some goofy supernatural stuff started and I went "Wow!" and became interested... Next I had this odd feeling of being stuck in a 1980's made-for-television drama, somewhat akin to K-9 & Company but hardly hilarious upon realizing how serious it was getting. Next with some of the cultural snubbing I was offended. Eventually it lead to total embarrassment on so many levels to so many groups. I'm not sure whom to feel sorry for. I have high doubts English Villagers are ever so daft, as well as any connections to black-clothed vegans and voodoo, and certainly would anticipate a country Rector to be better informed. This story seems to be one in many treatments to fiction that adopts wild soap-opera melodrama without expecting it's audience to drop it's suspension of disbelief, much less roll on the floor laughing from the foolishness. It had potential, too. If you consider yourself to be somewhat wise or intelligent and would like a goofy ride, take a turn with Village Secrets.
