"When Julia gathered Barker's family at Peridale Manor for his surprise birthday party, she did not expect it to result in murder! Minutes before the celebration is scheduled to begin, Barker's nephew, Luke, is found strangled in his bed, putting an end to Julia's dream of a quiet family get together. Only one of Barker's family could have murdered the young man, but which one? Thanks to a botched burglary in the village, the police station is clogged up, forcing Barker to go rogue with Julia. He shuts down the manor, vowing to solve the murder before sunrise, but will he be able to pin the murder on one of his brothers or their wives? Julia quickly discovers that each member of his family has a secret, but which one led to Luke's death? In a race against the clock, Julia must dig up the past, but can she uncover the truth without tearing Barker's family apart forever?"-- Page [4] of cover.

This is one of my very, very favorite cozy mystery series! The author is so skilled at drawing the reader in and making you feel as you are living right there with them in their quaint English village. Although the mysteries are always excellently written and are filled with twists and turns, I'm finding myself reading them more and more for the characters than simply the mysteries.
