3.0 out of 5 starsReview

Up until now I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, this book felt rushed as though the author was in too much of a hurry to get into print, without thinking the story through. Throughout the book there were misplaced words and letters and words left out which made it hard to read. Hopefully there will be an update to correct the mistakes.
5.0 out of 5 starsNew characters and the same old charm!

This series is like a comfortable old chair and a throw by the fire. I find the warmth of the characters and the entrancing walk through Cherringham to be the tonic to lift my spirits! The stories are well written and the characters continue to keep us laughing and in suspense. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 starsgreat narator, BEST narator ever

Love all the Cherringham books, have not listened or read one that is not interesting. I've been to the area where the stories are located (even tho' there is no Cherringham you can still visualize the location) Sarah and Jack become (almost) family members.
Normally do not have a clue for the end...this time I was somewhat correct. A mystery with happiness...a win win..as Jack and Sarah work together in an antique train genre to find a gentleman who vanished.
Every Sunday an elderly and obviously frail gentleman buys a first class return ticket for a round trip on the Great Cotswold’s steam railway, from Cherringham to Cheltenham. Bernard Mandeville loves trains, and especially enjoys this heritage steam locomotive, reminiscent of a bygone era. A relative always takes him to the station and collects him after the journey.
This particular Sunday Mr Mandeville is seated as usual, in a first class compartment, but when the train returns to Cherringham there’s no sign of him. He never leaves the train during the journey and he was seen in his compartment when the train left Cheltenham. Mr Mandeville’s family ask Jack and Sarah for help.
The Cherringham series is an ongoing collection of fun and easy to read novella length cosy mysteries in a charming Cotswold village setting. The roughly 100 pages leave plenty of room for developing the plot and the ongoing characterisations. I love the unlikely and engaging pairing of Jack and Sarah and the close friendship that’s grown between them. The plots are interesting, not repetitive and the outcomes aren’t obvious.
A short standalone in the on going Cherringham series featuring amateur sleuths - Jack (an American ex cop) and Sarah (home bred Cherringham-ite) - this time involving themselves in the mystery of a missing older gentleman with a love of steam trains. This fell slightly flat for me as it felt a little stilted compared to others I've read, although on the whole it's an enjoyable, quick read in the vein of the preceeding books (note - each can be read as a standalone throughout this series). A pleasant read.
5.0 out of 5 starsSo glad Jack didn't stay in the USA

Another great story in this series. Love trains so what more could I want than a mystery set on a preserved steam railway. For those of you already know Cherringham, Jack and Sarah I'm sure you've already read it for those who don't I highly recommend this book and the rest in the series.

I loved this book, I have enjoyed the whole series as I have read them in order. This one was really un-put-downable!! A great mystery, that I did guess what had happened by chapter 13, but it was a great read !! Can recommend!!
