Village Secrets : Tales from Turnham Malpas Paperback
by Rebecca Shaw
Part of the Turnham Malpas series
Mysterious goings-on in the village of Turnham Malpas...The village school is to get a new head, and the inhabitants of Turnham Malpas await her arrival with curiosity.
At first sight, Kate Pascoe seems ideal. She's young, pretty and obviously loves her job. But when she introduces meditation classes for her ten-year-olds, and even tree-hugging, the villagers begin to think again. Then a strange malaise afflicts the whole village: lights are seen in Sykes Wood at night; a dog long dead appears to come to life and a sudden shocking death plunges the village into a state of superstitious dread. And always at the eye of the storm is Kate Pascoe...

Review by susanpenter
Once again there is a slightly sinister aspect to this charming village novel. This time in the form of witchcraft. This is the fifth book in the series and it is written as well as the first I am now looking to buy or borrow the 6th as soon as possible so what bigger recommendation can I give.
