"An Unholy Communion" by Donna Fletcher Crow

A gathering on Ascension morning to sing praises sounds wonderful to Felicity; an absolutely wonderful way to start the day. As the songs and worship fill the air, something more sinister is happening above them. A body falls over the precipice and lands at Felicity's feet. Was this accident, suicide, or murder? In this third installment of her "Monastery Murder Series," Donna Fletcher Crow provides the clues and the answer.

Felicity is horrified to find a body at her feet. It is black robed and one hand is holding an emblem of a two headed snake. Then, Father Antony, her fiance, said that this was a former student. Sadness joined the horror of the death. But, while so many others were willing to call it a suicide, Felicity and Father Antony thought differently. Thus began their journey to discover what really happened. Who could possibly want to kill Hwyl Pendry? Where do they see the symbol again, and how do they react? Is this the work of a cult or a hate group? Come along and join the journey through Wales and British history and see if you can discover the answers.

This is an interesting book full of not only the story Ms. Crow has written, but also British history. It definitely adds more life and truth to the lines in the book. I found myself drawn to the characters and mystery, working to solve it as clues came along. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries with the special touch of historical fact. My free review copy came from Litfuse Publishing in exchange for participation in the blog tour.
