I listened to this audiobook over the course of two runs. Narrated brilliantly by Neil Dudgeon, who stars in Midsomer Murders (a favourite show of mine although I love the John Nettles episodes best, because well…John Nettles), this is a similar kind of story and I can actually imagine this would work really well as a TV series.

Sarah Edwards is a single mother, who moved back to Cherringham – a lovely little village in the Cotswolds – from London after her marriage broke up. She is shocked to hear of the apparent suicide of her childhood friend Sammi, but soon starts to suspect that Sammi may in fact have been murdered.

Jack Brennan is a retired New York Homicide Detective who has moved to Cherringham after his retirement, to live a quiet life with his dog on their boat. However, when the opportunity to get involved in solving a possible murder comes his way, he teams up with Sarah to find out the truth behind Sammi’s death.

I really enjoyed this book – it comes in at just under 3 hours, but happily there are several more episodes in this series, as well as a couple of fuller length novels.

If you like shows like Midsomer Murders or books like the Agatha Raisin series, I would highly recommend this. I enjoyed the narration but I think I would have equally enjoyed reading it as a physical book. I will definitely be listening to / reading more in the series.
