Ellie's new husband Thomas presents her with a mystery to solve though she'd much rather keep warm and fight her terrible cold. Ursula has staged a sit in at a local church and asks Ellie if she can find her friend Mia who has disappeared and solve a murder which has been treated as an accident by the police. In the course of her investigations Ellie comes up against some extremely unpleasant so-called pillars of the community and finds herself trying to unravel a mystery which is much more comp...more

I have missed reading this series since moving south. I interlibraryloaned this one and it was well worth the wait. Ellie Quicke is now happily married to the Reverend Thomas, managing the Trust left to her by her first husband's late Aunt Drusilla, and still dealing with her difficult adult daughter Diana. After Thomas finds a college student Ursula camping out in the nearby church, Ellie is called upon to reason with her and of course becomes involved in Ursula's problems. There are three inte...more
Really couldn’t sleep last night and so I finished a stack of mysteries due back at the library anyway. The first was Murder in House by Veronica Heley. I am reading this out of order, having read the rest of the series a while ago, my library just didn’t have this one and now they do. :) I love the character of Ellie Quick; she is complex, likable, intelligent and brave, all packaged in the body of a middle aged woman. Initially, when I began this series I thought of it as a cozy but I would sa...more
This is #10 in a series of Ellie Quicke mysteries. I must have skipped one because the home situation of Ellie is VERY DIFFERENT than the last time. This was good story about corruption in high places because a rich man is buying people off. And once that happens then those people will go to any lengths to keep the payoffs coming and the rich guy happy no matter the cost to others.
My only wish is that Ellie's daughter Diana would be allowed to grow up a little and become a better person and les...more
Ellie Quicke is called upon to deal with a student who has staged a sit-in at church. The student challenges Ellie to solve three mysteries: a broken engagement, a disappearance, and a death. As she investigates, Ellie suspects there is more to these events than anyone is admitting.
I always enjoy the Ellie Quick mysteries - she does manage to get involved in so many things in one book. I believe this is number 10 in the series and I don't think I have missed any of these.
Ursula Belton's best friend is missing and another good friend is dead. That's when Ursula, a student, asks Ellie Quicke for help. Unfortunately, that puts Ellie, her friends and family, at conflict with the powerful Prior developers, whose family is implicated in Ursula's problems.
I enjoyed this as much as all of the other Ellie Quick stories
