Rebiew written 15 June, 2017

3.3 Stars - A good third!

Book #3 in the Cherringham cozy crime solves serial. See my review for the first three-part audiobooks box, Cherringham #1-3: A Cosy Crime Series Compilation. — 2:30 hours narrated by Neil Dudgeon.

Most creepy of these three novella length stories. I truly like Jack and Sarah by know. — Looking forward to more.

I LIKE - ...cozy small towns mysteries

Another adventure for Jack and Sarah and I have to say these get better and better – mainly I think because the more I read, the more I come to love the characters. Extremely well drawn and feeling more and more like real people as we go, I can easily imagine them in the Cherringham setting, chasing down clues and discovering hidden secrets. This time murder by cake it seems, which certainly appealed to me!

Each new instalment brings us a lovely little mystery to solve and develops the setting an

Always an enjoyable read! When a member of the Cherringham choir turns out dead because of her peanut allergy, everyone dismisses murder and the police declares it as an accident, until one of the choir members asks Jack and ofcourse Sarah to see into it.
Seriously, Cherringham police, you're lazy or blind?
In this one, Jack and Sarah help solve the mysterious death of a choir member and Jack goes undercover in the choir to sort out the various suspects. Sarah with the help of a few people in the choir discovers a list of suspects and with Jack’s help they manage to narrow it down. It had unexpected surprises and it was a really good read with very likeable characters if a little quirky. Pick up a copy you just may enjoy it.

I dont normally go for short stories as they never seem to have time to develope either the characters or storyline. Tonight, however, it seemed too late to start reading a full novel but I wanted something and drew this one from the shelf.

I remembered the main characters from reading the earlier books and was soon re-immersed in the village life of Cherringham and the Rotarian choir practicing for their Christmas concert.

For the armchair detective, I dont think that there was enough in the stor

I've read all three of these so far--this is the third of twelve installments in this 'cozy' series.
But don't imagine little old ladies and crocheted antimacassars -- the crime-busting duo here are a computer-savvy graphic artist, who retreated back home to this small English village when her husband absconded with his beautiful boss (so she's also a newly-single mother of two) and a New York police detective, who retired to this 'quiet' English village after the death of his beloved wife. They

A young woman is hurrying home from choir practice one winter's night when she realizes that she's having a serious reaction to something... she doesn't understand it since everyone knows that she's allergic to peanuts so none of the baked goods after choir practice should have affected her. She opens her purse for her Epi-pen and finds only one when there should be two, but one is enough until she tries to inject herself and finds the pen is empty. In utter panic, Kirsty tries to hurry to her c ...more

Short stories are hard, but when two talented authors come together, the lines are tight and the mystery moves along without the usual plumping up of unnecessary character traits or overly descriptive surroundings.

Ex-NYPD detective Jack Brennan and web designer Sarah Edwards, team up again to answer the question of who killed Kristy Kimball. Known by everyone around her that she is deathly allergic to peanuts and carries multiple epi-pens how did she manage to die from anaphylaxis on the side o

I love these books. They're a very relaxing and enjoyable read. Nothing overly violent or graphic in any of the stories. It's a nice change from what I usually read. I've now finished my sixth story in the set. I'll keep going back to them when I feel I need a break from the more heavy stuff I read. I also love the American character Jack and the very English Sarah. ...more

The Cherringham crew preparing for Christmas was quite charming but the murder by peanut fell a little flat for me. The murder mystery and sleuthing was interesting but the whodunnit ended without a clear resolution for me. Wanted a little more. Love the idea of the holiday choir performing at the town square with a Christmas tree lit with real candles.

These are fun low key crime novels so don't get too caught up in the detail. In each book so far our part time skueths have reverted to some form of illegal activity such as breaking into a dwelling to search for the final clues in order to solve the case. Just has me wondering why there is never any mention of what the local police response was but that may be over thinking this type of work? ...more
I'm really not sure why did Kirsty, one of the choir singers, have to die. What did she done wrong to the killer. What a pointless and sad death. I'm glad Sarah and Jack solved her death. Great narration was done by Neil Dudgeon. Recommended series! ...more
Murder by anaphylaxis! The police took it at face value, but Sarah doesn't believe it, and neither does the choir accompanist. So Jack and Sarah do their own diligence and find the truth. Well done!
Voice actor Neil Dudgeon is excellent at his craft, but his audio equipment needs adjustment.

Quick and easy read. Not too much to think about and not a big fuss. Sometimes those Cherringham-Mysteries are a bit too short for my liking.
