Publisher's Summary

As the day of Grace's wedding approaches, it seems nothing can get in the way of the happy Cherringham event. But just days before, her father Len is suddenly arrested on suspicion of murder - a murder committed 30 years ago, and a thousand miles away. Could Len actually have committed the crime? And can Jack and Sarah unearth the truth in time for him to walk his daughter down the aisle?

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 read for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

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 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. He is also known for his film roles in The Nativity, Sorted and Son of Rambow. In 2012 Dudgeon starred as Norman Birkett on BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Play series written by Caroline and David Stafford.

Light on plot

This is the first book in the series that I felt was under-developed. Performance was good but the plot was very thin.

Hard to follow

I did not like the British narration at all. What a way to waste a credit. Very disappointing

Great plot twist!

The father of Sarah's friend and employee is arrested for a thirty-year-old murder in another country and found to have lived a completely different lifestyle at that time. Jack and Sarah have so little time to find out who really did the deed before Grace's wedding!

Another great Cherringham episode

These are such great stories. Now getting ready for Grace’s wedding, disaster strikes and Jack and Sarah are in the case so the wedding can go forward but how can it when an old murder comes back to haunt Grace’s family. More great narration by Neil Dudgeon.

Just Keep Getting Better

To me, this was one of the best ones yet. More human touches. Good story that keeps you guessing. No foul language or sex. Always great delivery by Neil Dudgeon. His “Jack” is perfect! On to 37!

Murder Under the Sun

You can't help but wonder how Jack and Sarah will be able to solve this time for Grace’s wedding considering 30 years have passed from the events in Spain occurred. And yet, they do! Another great installment in the ever changing Cherringham community.

Hate whispers on audiobooks

I enjoyed listening to this book, a good short “who dunnit “. I really dislike whispering and lowered voices on audio due to having to crank up volume in car and then getting blasted when I have to park.
