LoveReading View on Talk of the Village

This is the second in the Turnham Malpas series and Shaw develops the characters from the first as well as bringing in new intriguing ones. She is a very good story teller which is why you find yourself so immersed in the lives of these characters and glad that there is another book to read afterwards.

Talk of the Village Synopsis

The second Turnham Malpas novel.
 
The village is bedevilled by talk and all is not as it seems in the village of Turnham Malpas ...

Does pushy newcomer Venetia have her eye on Peter, the handsome rector? Is Jeremy, her husband, really making a success of the new health club? And why does Willie's new love set a vicious tongue wagging? In the Royal Oak, the usual banter has turned to bitter wrangling as the rector's wife Caroline makes a challenge over an ancient country tradition and splits the village her husband had so recently united.

As the people of the village use the power of words to reconcile or divide, Peter finds it is what isn't talked about that threatens to cause madness, confusion and tragedy.
