    As undertaker Drew Slocombe drove to Greta Simmonds’ burial in Broad Campden, deep in the heart of the Cotswolds, thoughts of his troubles at home and at work played on his mind. The last thing he was worried about was becoming a murder suspect. Thea Osbourne becomes Drew’s unlikely friend and defender when the council worker opposing the burial is found dead just minutes from Thea’s latest house-sitting assignment: the Cotswold home of the late Mrs Simmonds.

    Where does A Grave in the Cotswolds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks as one of the top 50. I love certain series with Anne Perry's William Monk being the top-top. Having said that, I have been captivated by Rebecca Tope's works just as I have with Anne Perry's. These authors write in the manner that I listen to their stories over and over.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Sort of. I liked the introduction of the undertaker and the fact that this story had him as the main character.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lennon – was your favorite?

    The undertake - hands down.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you, Ms. Tope for a fresh character and keeping the Cotswolds the major setting.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What did you love best about 14?

    This story is a weird, yet fun, read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the Thursday Next series written by Jasper Fforde.


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Porter adds a dimension with his expression that would be missed just reading.

    All Alby wants is a decent coffee and a day off. But there's a hijacked tanker with a deadly cargo in Sydney Harbor, and bullets are flying on board a U.S. Navy cruiser. Three sailors are dead and a Seahawk chopper is missing.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The story line is fun; the characters are decently developed; the narrator has a pleasant voice and right for this story.


    What does Peter Hosking bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his accent. It sounds like he had fun making this audiobook. His voice fits the plot, setting, and characters.
