Publisher's Summary

Sidney Chambers, the Vicar of Grantchester, is a 32-year-old bachelor. Tall, with eyes the colour of hazelnuts, he is both an unconventional clergyman and a reluctant detective. Working in association with his friend, Inspector Geordie Keating, Sidney is able to go where the police cannot, eliciting surprise revelations and confessions from his parishioners; whether it involves the apparent suicide of a local solicitor, a scandalous jewellery theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, or the unexplained death of a jazz promoter's daughter.
Alongside his inquiries, Sidney also manages to find time to enjoy cricket, warm beer, hot jazz, and the company of an attractive, lively young woman called Amanda.

A lovely gentle series

I have listened to all 3 in this series one after the other - and they are delightful. I dislike TV and so refused to listen to my sister urging me on to watch televised Grantchester. I have known no one who has read the books. But these listens are lovely. Goodness Sidney is hopeless (I tend to think he was a touch more glamorous on TV) but he is a lovely character tho quite why his police chum feels he is essential to so many investigations is beyond me! These tales seems earlier than the 50's and 60's and often sound a little like Nigel Strangeways but this is a lovely series whilst walking the dog or driving home from a tough day at the office.
