Dramatic events in Turnham Malpas make for a steamy summer.A mysterious visitor has arrived in Turnham Malpas. What can Titus Bellamy want? Is it true, the villagers ask each other, that he has discovered a medieval charter which grants the right to hold a market on their picturesque village green? And if it is true, can he be stopped?Meanwhile, after twenty-five years, the marriage of Liz and Neville Neal is on the rocks. Or so the unhappy Liz thinks. But Neville, to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary, has decided to throw a lavish party. The anniversary party and the market on the green mark both the beginning and the end of two quite different relationships. But is it really all the fault of Titus Bellamy? The village is divided - before a spate of burglaries on market day adds fuel to the hot debate, and someone unexpected decides to take matters into her own hands...

Who would ever think that just one gentle stranger arriving in Turnham Malpas was going to cause so much turmoil in the village. Titus Bellamy charms most of the villagers and, initially, the reader cannot help but think "is Titus showing us his true nature?" For Titus, holding a market on the village green in Turnham Malpas, just once a week, sounds like a great idea and a good way to make a living; however, the villagers don't share his views - protests ensue and undesirable elements are drawn to market day in Turnham Malpas. Liz and Neville's lives are to be changed forever as a result of these events. As always, a really enjoyable book from Rebecca Shaw - one that I found hard to put down. Rebecca Shaw's village characters are like old friends, and it's lovely to pick up a new Turnham Malpas book and find out what these characters are getting up to.
