“For it was a truth universally acknowledged that a single vicar must be in want of a wife.”
G.M. Malliet, Wicked Autumn

“Every seed that produces this miraculous bounty has the code that will heal all ills - and a sprout travels from the darkness towards the light, just as we all must do. We simply aren't evolved enough yet to understand how it all fits together.”
G.M. Malliet, Wicked Autumn

“Oh please tell me we're not doing the Poirot thing again — the suspects in the library with the candlestick or whatever'.

Max looked at him [DCI Cotton]. 'Fruitcake in this case. And what would you prefer? A car chase? It’s the most efficient way to flush out a killer, as Dame Agatha Christie well knew.”
G.M. Malliet, A Demon Summer
