Publisher's Summary

As the day of Grace's wedding approaches, it seems nothing can get in the way of the happy Cherringham event. But just days before, her father Len is suddenly arrested on suspicion of murder - a murder committed 30 years ago, and a thousand miles away. Could Len actually have committed the crime? And can Jack and Sarah unearth the truth in time for him to walk his daughter down the aisle?

Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly - but with a spot of tea - it's like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby. Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick read for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid 90's, creating content and working on projects for the BBC, Disney Channel, Sony, ABC, Eidos, and Nintendo to name but a few. Their transatlantic collaboration has underpinned scores of TV drama scripts, computer games, radio shows, and the successful crime fiction series Cherringham.

The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programmes including the roles of 'DCI John Barnaby' in Midsomer Murders and Jim Riley in The Life of Riley. He is also known for his film roles in The Nativity, Sorted and Son of Rambow. In 2012 Dudgeon starred as Norman Birkett on BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Play series written by Caroline and David Stafford.

No no no no NO!

Very disappointed I have really enjoyed the cherringham stories in the past, but this one was awful. Boring story and silly really. I still liked Neil Dudgeon narration but that all. Won’t be getting any more.

Just Keep Getting Better

To me, this was one of the best ones yet. More human touches. Good story that keeps you guessing. No foul language or sex. Always great delivery by Neil Dudgeon. His “Jack” is perfect! On to 37!

Murder Under the Sun

You can't help but wonder how Jack and Sarah will be able to solve this time for Grace’s wedding considering 30 years have passed from the events in Spain occurred. And yet, they do! Another great installment in the ever changing Cherringham community.

Hate whispers on audiobooks

I enjoyed listening to this book, a good short “who dunnit “. I really dislike whispering and lowered voices on audio due to having to crank up volume in car and then getting blasted when I have to park.

Awesome novella..

Novella #36 and I've listened to them all. I just love Sarah and Jack and all these fun little episodes********** This one was about Jack and Sarah's friend being arrested for a 30 year old murder and their race to clear his name before he was extradited to Spain, where the murder happened********** As always, no romance and no swearing********** As to the narration: Neil Dudgeon is simply fabulous reading these novellas.

Just brilliant

Loved this offering from my favourite crime fighting duo. Really wish the writers would awaken them to the fact they have fallen in love with one another though and move the story line on in the way it now needs before it gets too tired.

long running series running out of ideas.......

I really enjoyed these in the early days but as always happens with detective series plots get thinner. This is one of the poorest if not the poorest of the Cherringham story's. There's only so far the authors can take Jack and Sarah unless they come up with something. I hope for the sake of their loyal 'readers' the authors remember we deserve better and that publishers cheques may not be 'everything' !

I can thoroughly recommend this book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, as always, with the unrivalled narrator Neil Dudgeon. No book in this series has failed to excel in the cosy crime genre. Excellent characters all superbly portrayed by the narrator. First class entertainment.
