Summary

Jack's a retired ex-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 19 - 21:

GHOST OF A CHANCE
Every Halloween, the supposedly haunted Bell Hotel hosts its famous 'Ghost-Hunters Dinner', complete with scary stories, spooky apparitions and things that go bump in the night. But this year's event ends in a terrifying accident, and suddenly everyone wonders... Is there a real ghost loose in the hotel? Jack and Sarah are convinced that the culprit must be human: who would want bad things to happen at the classic hotel? But soon they're forced to confront their own superstitions as they find themselves on the trail of an unsolved Victorian murder...

FOLLOW THE MONEY
Claire and Terry Goodman seem to have everything. Successful business. Son at Oxford. New mansion right on the River Thames. And seemingly... plenty of money to spend. But when Jack and Sarah are asked to investigate an odd robbery at their home, secrets start to emerge. And as the truth is revealed, for someone it will be too much to bear, and murder may be the only way out.

MURDER MOST WILD
When the Zakro Corporation attempts to build a mammoth supermarket outside Cherringham, the whole village is up in arms. But the accidental death of the lead environmentalist, Sam Lewis seems to hand victory to the developers. Could Sam's opposition to the project be the real reason he died? When Jack and Sarah take on the case, they will learn that what was an accident was - in fact - one very wild murder.

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 listen for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa. For fans of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple series", Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who series", Caroline Graham's "Midsomer Murders", and the American TV series "Murder She Wrote", starring Angela Lansbury.

Thank goodness it’s back!!

This felt like a long time coming but it was worth the wait as Sarah and Jack are back on top form once again. I doubt anyone will be starting the series here so you know what to expect but I did love the hint of something more in their relationship, the slightest touch of romance maybe?

Fingers crossed we won’t be waiting months again for the next chapter, I get very jealous of my German friends getting it so soon as they are books ahead!

Cherringham, I've missed you!

I found the Cherringham Cosy Crime series quite by accident, then binge listened from 1-18. I could see the German versions (why do they make a German recording of an English mystery before an English one?!) of this series beyond 18. I was waiting impatiently for the English recordings to catch up and was delighted to see 19-21 released a few days ago.

So good to "see" the friends in Cherringham. True to the tone and history of the series. If you are a Cherringham fan, definitely get this audiobook.

Not the strongest entry

I genuinely like the Cherringham series and am glad I purchased this.

It is not, however, the strongest set of stories in the series. The characters seemed a bit flat compared to the earlier stories. The mysteries, while still good, were not quite as well plotted as the previous ones. The vague hints of romance were disappointing, honestly. The friendship between the lead characters was nice touch...turning it romantic just seems unnecessary.

I do like the series and I will buy more if they write more. I was just a bit underwhelmed by this installment.

Easy listening fun!

I admit it. I love ALL the Cherringham stories. The reader, Neil Dudgeon, is perfect for this series of light mysteries. The stories are not very complicated, easy to follow and easy to listen to. Sarah is a believable character, actually the whole cast is except for.... the retired NY Cop. I know, he's the center of the stories. But something about his character is sometimes jarring. Aside from that bit of pickiness on my part these are fun. I like that new stories pop up from time to time. If you, like me, listen to these cozies only occasionally, try this series.

They are at it again!

Great books! I have enjoyed them ALL.
Once again I almost bought the next book in German. which I do not speak fluently at all! I actually bought one by accident already. Be careful that you look closely when you buy. They look Very similar!

Enjoyable and comfy mysteries

I love these stories - they are like an audio version of a comfy favorite shirt. The characters are known, yet are evolving, and the town and countryside and seasons feel familiar.
The stories and narration make these worthwhile entertainment.

Love this series, great narrator

I thoroughly enjoyed the series and Neil Dudgeon does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. I've always thought that actors make the best narrators and it's certainly true with Mr Dudgeon. After watching him in "Midsomer Murders", it's easy to picture him as a detective. I look forward to future episodes in this series.
