Welcome to Fethering, where the village gossip is of weddings, parties, and a ghastly murder...
Carole Seddon's son is about to be married. But as plans for the big day get underway, Stephen's future parents-in-law, Marie and Harold, seem desperate to keep the affair as discreet as possible. Then, after a quiet engagement party, Harold disappears...only to be found dead the next day, in a burnt out car in Epping Forest.
While the family try to deal with their grief, Carole discovers they are concealing secrets that can be traced back 30 years, to the murder of Marie's best friend. Now the girl's killer has been released from prison and is back in his old stomping ground, near Fethering.
As Carole enlists the help of her friend Jude in researching the truth, Gaby returns to London to find herself in grave danger. Fearing the bride-to-be is the killer's next target, Carole and Jude must unravel the Martin family's past before he makes another deadly move...and before the happiness of the impending wedding day is ruined.

Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
OK it is nit picking, but if an old recording is remastered or rerecorded surely an editor is called for
That is my biggest beef, and it really does spoil the quality of the perfprmance.
Otherwise Simon Brett reads this charming early 'Feathering' story well. It was a pleasant exposure of Carol and had a gorgeous conclusion.
"Predictable but enjoyable"
I enjoy this series. They are undemanding and quite entertaining...although a little predictable. Simon Brett reads them with enthusiasm.
"A first for me"
I really enjoyed this story. I came across it by accident , but will buy more. A very good buy. Thanks
