Cherringham, A Cozy Crime Series by Costello and Neil Richards Review!

Cherringham is a quiet and peaceful town in the Cotswolds. Time moves slowly here, and nothing out of the ordinary ever happens, until one morning a woman’s body is discovered in the river. Sarah Edwards has just returned to Cherringham with her two children following the breakdown of her marriage. Sarah had been friends with Sammi Jackson – the woman in the river –before they both moved to London and she’s certain there is more to her death than meets the eye. But juggling the school run and her job as a web designer doesn’t leave much time to solve murder mysteries.

After the death of his wife, former NYPD homicide detective Jack Brennan has retired to Cherringham hoping for a quiet life. He soon realises “peace and quiet” isn’t really him and, despite his misgivings, he’s persuaded by Sarah to help her look into Sammi’s death. It quickly becomes clear that the case isn’t as simple as the police hope. From her violent ex-boyfriend to her alcoholic father, it seems everyone has something to hide. Sarah and Jack will need to use all their wits to get to the bottom of this case.

"Cherringham - A Cozy Crime Series" is a series of twelve self-contained episodes. A new case for Jack and Sarah is released each month.

My Thoughts

Cherringham is an episodic series of twelve books which are released each month. I love British mysteries and this one was no exception. Both characters, Sarah and Jack have baggage, as everyone does, but their pasts did not bog down the story. These two are working together to solve the death of a woman found in the river, who was also a friend of Sarah's. A very well written start to I think will be an great atmospheric series. I look forward to reading more of these episodes!

I received a copy for review and was not monetarily compensated for said review.
