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.

If you like Rebecca Shaw you might also like to read books by Maureen Lee, Elvi Rhodes and Ann Purser.

Synopsis

Talk of the Village by Rebecca Shaw

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.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
