Summary

Jack's a retired cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village to find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries. This compilation contains episodes 16 - 18:
 

The Last Puzzle:
When amiable old village eccentric Quentin Andrews dies, the good folk of Cherringham are astonished at the crowd that turns up to his funeral. But even more astonished are the beneficiaries of his will: Quentin has left a veritable fortune to whomever is the first who can solve an intricate 'Cherringham crossword'. That puzzle is only the first of many that Jack and Sarah will uncover as they follow the treasure hunt for clues and learn the truth about who Quentin Andrews really was. And the biggest mystery of them all... was he - in fact - murdered?
 

Final Cut:
When a big movie production comes to Cherringham, complete with lords, ladies, and flashing swords, the whole village is abuzz with excitement. But when a series of dangerous accidents threatens the life of the young lead, Zoe Harding, Sarah and Jack get involved. Are these really accidents? Or could they be something more sinister - even deadly? Who is trying to destroy the career of the beautiful young star - and why?
 

The Vanishing Tourist:
When an American tourist goes missing in Cherringham, the local police don't see reason for concern - people often wander away from such tours. But when that tourist's sister shows up from New York, desperately looking for answers, Jack and Sarah become convinced there's more to the disappearance than meets the eye. Soon, they are entangled in a mystery with a secret history of betrayal, sacrifice, dishonour... and death.
 

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.
 

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 - most recently - 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".

Great listen

Just like all the previous sets in the Cherringham series, these three stories are very good. It is amazing how whilst all the stories are about the same place and main characters, they are all very different. They are well crafted and realistic, apart from the fact all these deaths and mysteries happen in the same town! And are constructed in the style of Agatha Christie. As always Mr Dudgeons narration is brilliantly done. His New York accent is particularly good and all the different characters are distinguishable. He is as good to listen to as the great Hugh Frasier in my opinion. These are another three great who dunnits that keep you guessing until very near the end and I look forward to buying all the others in the series as and when they are translated into English

Enjoyable, accessible, crime mysteries

This was my first taste of the Cherringham series and I enjoyed the three stories that this book contained. They seemed to me to be ideal for a television series that would entertain but not offend. And Neil Dudgen does a great job in bringing the characters to life. If you like Lovejoy and Rosemary & Thyme then you will enjoy this.

Brilliant as always!

Really enjoyed this new edition of Jack & Sarah's adventures!
I love how things gradually tie together, or comments relating to past stories.
I really miss listening to them during the day!
Cannot wait until 19-21 episodes are out!

Waiting for Episodes 19 - xx in English!

I blew through Episodes 1-18 in no time, even when I ran out of credits and paid for the next installments! The next episodes in this series are not available in English. Please, Audible, release the subsequent episodes in English!

So good

I've waited to write a review until I'd listened to all of the series available in English. I really enjoyed them all and hope there will be many more. Neil Dudgeon is such a gifted narrator, one of the very best. He is a master of accents.
These mysteries are just right for me. Interesting subjects that keep me guessing. More please!

Fun

This is a wonderful "cosy" series There are times when I want to listen to a shorter story that is pure entertainment. This series is just what I want at those times.

The characters are likable. The mysteries are interesting without being overly violent. The setting is scenic and inhabited by unique characters.

If I fall asleep listening to one of these stories I will sleep peacefully.

Neil Dudgeon's narration is excellent.

If more of these become available I will buy them!

Need More!

I love these stories. They are short and easy, and not too anything. Just nice and cozy. I know there are more in German, so I hope they get them in English too. I have
all of them.

Definitely cozy! Definitely a mystery!

While the mysteries are very cleverly wrought, there is always a knowledge undergirding it all that Jack and Sarah will save the day!
I love Jack's toughness and confidence. But his humanity is always present. He is like an American version of Inspector Lewis or DCI Barnaby, but more physical.
Sarah's kids and her parents are wonderful, as are all her friends in Cherringham. One can't help but hope that she and Jack might make a life together, despite their age difference.
Neil Dudgeon, TV's current DCI Barnaby, is the perfect narrator! He has mastered dramatic pauses in a way I have never heard from other narrators. He knows how to use silence as well as sound. I feel as though he is relating a true event that he actually witnessed, rather than just reading a story.
If you like cozy mysteries, for good writing, clever plots, and great narration, Cherringham is the best! (The only thing the I find off-putting is the brief dissonant creepy music at the start and finish. )

Great little British mystery series.

I LOVE this series. Little or not so little crimes are solved quickly by a retired New York detective and a divorced British mother of 2 in a sleepy British town. I like how short the stories are. Each story is finished within a little more than 2 hours of audio. Neil Dudgeon is a charismatic narrator who has the ability to develop a rich voice for every character. Jack's New York accent may be a little overdone, but it still works in the story. I wish I could find this in print form as my father won't do Kindle or Audible. It's the kind of series he would also enjoy. I'm anxiously awaiting the remaining books on Audible.
