The Rose Rent
by Ellis Peters

This is the thirteenth of the Cadfael mysteries, and it's one of the most enjoyable. A few years prior to the events of the book, young widow Judith Perle gave over her house to the monastery, for the annual rent of a single rose from the house's garden. The mystery gets underway when the monk charged with delivering the rose is found dead, the rosebush hacked in two, and Judith disappears. Cadfael thus has a multi-part mystery on his hands. The working out of the plot involved a tender romance and a few surprises, making The Rose Rent one of the standouts of the series.
