A gentle reminder that morality can and maybe should trounce legal definition. And what better setting than the great city of Edinburgh

Well narrated with the gentle lily of Phyllis Logan setting the right tone.

Read this book when it was first written and watched the TV show - had forgotten the sequence of events but it was predictable but feel good. Always great to read when feeling a bit down.

Descriptive passages which paint pictures and are a joy to hear. In lesser hands they could be fluffy. A flawed person just trying to get by. Can’t wait to ‘read’ the next one

As ever Neil Dudgeon does the story proud. Not clichéd, but nuanced. Enjoyable and lovely to sleep with!

Excellent as ever. Not wished no to pre-empt but would it spoil the dynamic if they got together?

A book that draws you in. None of the characters are without flaws, as in life. One feels like shouting at them, don't do it, it will all go wrong. However, the fear of what is to come (WWII) is palpable. Sometimes confusing as to who belongs to what family, and with audio there is no easy genealogy map to refer to, but I just wanted to keep listening. I have read the series in the past but what I love about audible is the expression in the narrator's voice - the choice of narrator is critical. Got to go to start on Book 2.

Still miss her. As ever, not complicated but not simple. Truthful, meaningful and caring. Good listening at any time

Love the subject matter, not one seen, or read often and the first part with its differing time spans and switching from one to another works in this case. Great story, good narrative but this second part was disappointing as it seems to rush through Betty's life and does not give her as much credence as I believe she deserves. Will wait awhile to 'read' part three.

Denouement too quick!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Question of Inheritance to be better than the print version?

This is the second of the series and I do enjoy them - little bit like the Cherringham series, good stories but easy to read and quick to absorb.

But in each the end is too quick, too pat and too convenient, as if the author has had enough of the book. Just leave us hanging a little longer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Question of Inheritance?

the blossoming of Georgia

Real issues wittingly dealt with

What did you like most about Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation (Cherringham 1 - 3)?

Real people who talk to each other, not forced and easy listening and yet compulsive. Not midsomer murders as there is not a stack of bodies! And the main characters are really friends

What other book might you compare Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation (Cherringham 1 - 3) to, and why?

Ngaio Marsh, witty and kind

Which character – as performed by Neil Dudgeon – was your favourite?

Neil has an easy way about him and the accents are not forced - both Jack and Sara are great

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could!

Any additional comments?

Hope they continue!
