The Hunted Hare by Fay Sampson is the first volume in the Aiden mysteries. It is set in the mountains of Wales and explores Celtic history and folklore. It is also a murder mystery with an interesting cast of characters all of whom are potential suspects. It is cozy mystery with just enough tension and suspense to keep the reader engaged. Readers who like puzzles will particularly like this book. Book clubs might enjoy discussing pilgrimages, Celtic history, and sacred places. My favorite words were hoary, taxol, and crozier. An interesting question to discuss would be whether or not the reader believes in supernatural healing or has ever had an experience with it? I enjoyed the read, and would recommend it for anyone who likes Father Dowling mysteries or Agatha Christie.
