A Christmas wedding in a monastery--what could be more idyllic? Given the public's intense fascination with the marriage ceremonies of British royalty, we might be hard pressed to find a more appealing story idea. Donna Fletcher Crow, award winning author of British history, deftly blends all of these elements into a murder mystery that is as entertaining as it is informative. The end result is 'An All-Consuming Fire', Book 5 in The Monastery Murders series.

In the storyline of this intriguing novel, Felicity has never been happier, in spite of her over-bearing mother who wants to turn her wedding into a royal affair, and Antony's worries over the television series he is narrating on the English Mystics. Then Felicity takes on responsibility for directing an Epiphany pageant for Kirkthorpe's wayward youth.

At least most of the vexing disruptions occurring on the filming locations are miles away from the Community of the Transfiguration. Until the threats move closer. Close enough to threaten Felicity's life.

Will the murderer stalking the Yorkshire Moors shatter the joy of Felicity and Antony's Christmas wedding?

“I always try to make it a hallmark of my writing never to write about a place I haven’t explored personally. In the case of 'An All-Consuming Fire', however, I think I reached a new level,” Crow said in a recent interview.

“For all of the Monastery Murders I have used as background the experiences my daughter had studying theology in an English monastery. When she and her soon-to-be-priested fiancé announced a Christmas wedding, I knew this would be more than mere background.

“Like Felicity’s mother, I arrived in Yorkshire with my head full of visions of royal events. After all, what else did I know about English weddings? I like to think I wasn’t quite as difficult as Mother of the Bride Cynthia, but I found myself in complete sympathy with her frustrations.

“I was able to ‘tell it like it was’ in a novel where almost everything is factual—except the murder.”

Donna Fletcher Crow is the author of 45 books, mostly novels of British history. The award-winning 'Glastonbury', an Arthurian grail search epic covering 15 centuries of English history, is her best-known work.

The Lord Danvers series is an Amazon bestseller in the British Detectives category. Books in the series include 'A Lethal Spectre', 'A Most Inconvenient Death', 'Grave Matters', 'To Dust You Shall Return' and 'A Tincture of Murder'. Donna provides a no-charge download of 'A Tincture of Murder' for those who sign up for her newsletter. More information is available at her website.

The Monastery Murders are contemporary clerical mysteries with clues hidden in medieval history. Titles are: 'A Very Private Grave', 'A Darkly Hidden Truth', 'An Unholy Communion', 'A Newly Crimsoned Reliquary', and 'An All-Consuming Fire'.

The Elizabeth & Richard Mysteries is a literary suspense series using literary figures as background: Rudyard Kipling in 'The Flame Ignites', Dorothy L Sayers in 'The Shadow of Reality', Shakespeare in 'A Midsummer Eve's Nightmare', and Jane Austen in both 'A Jane Austen Encounter' and 'A Most Singular Venture'.

The Daughters of Courage, 'Kathryn', 'Elizabeth' and 'Stephanie' is a pioneer family saga based on the stories of Crow's own family and other Idaho pioneers in the Kuna, Nampa and Boise area.

Readers and reviewers alike have raved about Crow's work, all based on her trademark meticulous research:

"With a mystery and a marriage, what's not to love? Donna Fletcher Crow has produced a masterpiece once again. A most fitting conclusion to the adventures of Antony and Felicity, I for one would love to see their adventures continue."

"Donna Fletcher Crow does it again! I love the way she intertwined Church History, liturgical church, mystery, and a very modern love story."

"Another excellent chapter in the Felicity saga. I always enjoy the historical and location references in each volume that give such a sense of place. Donna Fletcher Crow is one of my favorite fiction authors."
