Murder at the Castle (A Belinda Pendhurst Mystery Book 2) by Lisa Cutts

Belinda is attracted to Harry though they are two very different characters. They've solved one murder mystery and are now on their second. The local Detectives are a bit miffed that the two seem to get the upper hand on solving the mysteries whenever they occur and have to remind them that they are not police detectives but this definitely does not hold back Belinda who drags the slightly unwilling Harry on. This was a pleasant cozy mystery murder - set in very English surroundings with the usual inhabitants knowing everyone else's business and if they don't finding out by one means or another. Nothing is very private so that when a murder takes place, every one in the village has an opinion of what and how and who. Very engaging and full of humour, this was a very pleasant read. It does well as a stand alone. Sent by Bookouture for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.

This sounds like a fun one. I thought of you as I just began listening to The Matrix, Lauren Groff set in a nunnery - I think you might like it -- good so far.
