Simon Brett Doesn't Disappoint!

There were a few logical inconsistencies but as these stories are light and the very premise of Carol and Jude acting as amateur detectives is unbelievable anyway, I can forgive the author. It's still a great story!

It's amazing how he can churn out mystery after mystery and make them so intriguing.

This one had the added enticement of Jude's affair with Piers.

As usual Brett does a brilliant job of reading his own books.

I think this is the best one yet of the series!

Very Enjoyable Cozy

I do love Brett's whole Fethering series with Carole and Jude, two retired/ semi-retired middle-aged divorced women with wildly different characters, fitting together so well to solve murders in and around their small town of Fethering.

This book was just as enjoyable for me as the earlier books, even though I know some reviewers did not like that Carole and Jude worked on separate mysteries. But - they did overlap and interact and try to bring each other up to speed regularly. Yes, we also saw a different side to Jude, and I suppose Brett wants to show the different dimensions of his long-term characters. So now we know the mysterious and usually-calm, new-agey Jude a little more intimately, I'm certain she will be back to her old self in the next installments.

I really enjoyed this listen - so comforting and, well, cozy!
