Kitty and Matt are on holiday to Yorkshire as part of their belated honeymoon. After almost dying in a fire during their last case, they are looking forward to the peace and quiet of the countryside. However, when their dog Bertie gets away from them during the village fair they stumble upon a dead body. They could end their vacation and head home. Kitty's inquisitive mind won't let her rest so when they are retained by Matt's aunt's neighbors to help clear their name, Matt and Kitty are once again on the case!

Murder at the Village Fair
 is book 13 in the Miss Underhay series. If you haven't started this series yet, it would be a great one to start with. Since Kitty and Matt are on vacation and not at home, the only character that we've met previously that appears in this book is Matt's Aunt Effie. She is a minor character in this book as she hosts them in her home. 

I really like Kitty and Matt as a sleuthing team. They work really well together and even though the 1930s didn't see a lot of working women - particularly once they were married - Matt not only accepts Kitty as a business partner he encourages her passion.

The mystery is good. Since we don't know the villagers we don't know any more than Kitty and Matt. It is fun to gather clues along with him and try to guess who the murderer is.
