Summary

Date with Mystery is the third crime caper in Julia Chapman's Dales Detective series. 

Detective Samson O'Brien is ready to settle down to a nice cup of tea, but it's not long before he's called on for help with a new case. 

In order to execute a recent will, solicitor Matty Thistlethwaite requires a copy of a death certificate for a young woman who died when Samson was a child. It should be straightforward, but things in Bruncliffe rarely are. Particularly when Matty insists that Delilah Metcalfe, with her wealth of local knowledge, works alongside Samson on the sensitive investigation. 

As Samson and Delilah combine forces yet again, before long they are embroiled in untangling a mystery that has lain at the heart of the town for decades. A mystery that some would prefer remained buried....

Good story but read in order

Good read but the only problem is it is a serial. If you do not read in the published it can spoil and confuse.

Another good romp

This was almost up to the usual enjoyable mix of mystery and murder amongst Yorkshire characters in a close knit community. Samson and Delilah going from strength to strength. However they took a little long time to figure out what was fairly obvious.
