Great light listening for fans of BBC/PBS style cozies. Dudgeon is a good reader/performer. You may recognize his voice from "Midsommer Murders" on tv. No gore or perversion so far.
I choose authors , then series. Must have quality characters. If I figure things out ,I like to do it as I progress through the story.
Neil Dudgeon narrates the cosy into the mysteries. A plump Chair,fireplace and glass of wine and each story would be an evening with good friends.
The Cherringham Mysteries was surprisingly good. I enjoyed all three episodes and bought the next 3 in the series.

I was trying to stick with it until the stereotypical American -gruff, ill-mannered, lives on a boat with his dog, neglects personal hygiene- ironed his faded jeans. That was too much. Who irons faded jeans? The story was very self- consciously stringing together stereotype after stereotype. "Let's make sure we work in 'marmalade,' old school mates returning home,' 'master/mistress and dog relationships,' 'widow talks to herself,' single mom with nasty divorce,' ill-mannered American.....' and as many other cliches as can possibly fit!"
"Light and easy"
I listen to lots of crime thrillers...sometimes I need to have a break from the serious stuff and this was just the ticket as they say 😀 light and refreshing, not demanding or heart stopping. I shall download the next 3 episodes.
Crime is the genre I enjoy the most from Agatha Christie and PD James to Damian Boyd and Val McDermott, but I normally dislike short stories or novellas even if written by the great and the good however I genuinely loved these.. Very light well written and well rounded stories and characters, perfect for when your gardening or walking the dogs. Will be purchasing the rest.
