Ellie Quicke Synopsis: In Murder at the Altar by Veronica Heley (book 1 of the series), Ellie is trying to put her life back together after her husband’s passing. For years she has been there at his beck and call, and has no idea what’s in store for her. As she begins to come to terms with her situation, a brutal murder takes place in the church nearby. Is this something to do with the arguing couple next door? Or are the police as mistaken in their enquiries as she suspects? Ellie’s mind is fogged by sleeping pills, but she is sure she saw something important that night. In the meantime, her relatives are looking for their share of her husband’s will and more than one potential suitor is already on the scene. Ellie begins to weigh up the strange happenings in the neighbourhood. The boy next door seems to know more than he is saying. The murder victim’s mother is missing. And something is happening to Ellie. Someone more astute and capable is emerging from beneath her unassuming sweetness. Perhaps there is more to her than people imagine after all. But soon her own life is under threat.
