This is my first foray into British cozy mysteries. This series isn't Margery Allingham or Ngaio Marsh, but it is well written, it is not too implausible, and there are no howling errors of British life or language use which can be so annoying. It is a pleasant listen, enough story to be gripping but not requiring too much emotional commitment. You do actually feel engaged in the story. The performance is excellent.

Crime is the genre I enjoy the most from Agatha Christie and PD James to Damian Boyd and Val McDermott, but I normally dislike short stories or novellas even if written by the great and the good however I genuinely loved these.. Very light well written and well rounded stories and characters, perfect for when your gardening or walking the dogs. Will be purchasing the rest.

Enjoyed this series of three short mysteries. I especially liked the second in the series. Jack, a retired NYPD detective from New York, teams with Sarah, a young woman recently returned to Cherringham, to solve questionable deaths. Jack and Sarah are likable characters without any romantic tension, at least in these stories. Sarah's young children and her parents are featured characters. I will definitely continue with the series, even though short stories are not necessarily my favorites.
Neil Dundgeon is an excellent reader, though I found Jack's American accent a bit flat.

I enjoyed the stories so much. It is so hard to find clean, funny and entertaining books. I love Neil Dudgeon's performance. He does not overdo the voices. I cannot handle a man trying to sound too much like a woman and visa versa. He leaves that to our imagination, which is so much better.
