It is amazing as to what lengths some people will go to, to disappear. This story really brought the fact that you really don't know people even when you think you do.

Absolutely brilliant. Listening to this book was an absolute pleasure, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Several times I had to stop doing housework so that I did not miss anything. I have really enjoyed the series and hope there will be more books. Such a shame that what can be done in fiction can't, and should not be done in the real world. Highly recommended.

When siblings Dan and Hayley Daley inherit their late grandmother's derelict Victorian farmhouse, it seems like a dream come true. All they have to do is fix the place up and sell it for a tidy profit! Except - as anyone who has renovated an old house knows - things are never that easy. The walls are rapidly crumbling around them, the architect is a certified lunatic, the budget is spiraling...and then there's the disturbingly intelligent cow to worry about.

I enjoyed this listening to this series. It maybe be somewhat clichéd what with the retired American cop, the bumbling English village police man and the relevantly English single female and the incredibly cheesy music, it is still enjoyable to listen to.
