Publisher's Summary

Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry. Here, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder - laced with a welcome dose of humour.

This compilation contains episodes 4 - 6.

DEATH OF A LADIES' MAN:

The summer tourist season is in full swing. Among the visitors is Mario Bellini, a gelateria owner with film-star good looks, who is considering opening an ice-cream parlour in Bunburry. But shortly after his arrival, he is found dead - a tragic accident, or something more sinister?

DROP DEAD, GORGEOUS:

Deb's Beauty Salon becomes the last resting place for merry widow and property magnate Eve Mosby, whose passions include haute couture and a young lover. Plenty of people disliked Mrs Mosby, but enough to kill her?

MURDER IN HIGH PLACES:

Oscar will brave the Cotswolds for the first time! Alfie has tried for months to convince his best friend to visit him - but when a glamorous High Society Party in honour of celebrated actor Dorian Stevens is announced, Oscar just can't resist. He is - after all - Dorian's greatest fan and can't wait to meet his hero. But the evening at the lovely Saville mansion takes a murderous turn...

If only the protagonist was a more likable person…

This is very frustrating. I started out loving these books. Excellent narration which alone is a major find. Quite witty and charming storytelling too… at least at first.

As the books progressed however, we begin to learn more and more about the main character. Unfortunately, here’s where the problems begin for me. He’s simply an unlikable person. Without going into detail… he annoys the hell out of me. From his political views (abortion) and his generally boorish, ignorant behavior, to his self centered outlook on just about everything… I find I can’t respect him as a human being or a fellow male AT. ALL! So this kinda sucks.

I don’t suspect my review will be very helpful, but hey it’s feedback. Let me know what you think? Thanks for reading.

depressing

About the time the story becomes fun the main character starts feeling sorry for himself and second guessing everything he says or does. it could be a fun book.

Just not for me

I really liked the first 3 but in this 4th story Sargent Wilson really got on my nerves, probably a mix of the performer and the writer. Sorry to say it's turned me off on all the others. Too sad

I love this Helena Marchmont series. It’s well written, witty and Nathaniel Parker is just excellent. His voice characterizations are just great. I find myself laughing out loud! Highly recommend and it’s a great series to listen to while walking.

Charming mysteries, delectable treats, amazing narration

Even though these are murder mysteries, the stories are full of charm, humor, delicious meals and sweets, and of course, the range of human emotions. Nathaniel Parker is my all time favorite narrator. Be careful...he is addictive!

Bunburry fun and engaging

These stories are well written and performed perfectly. I enjoyed these mysteries and became very invested in the characters lives. This book is a great escapism from the real world.

1 - 3 Are more mystery, 4 - 6 character driven

I enjoyed the challenge of Bunbury one through three because of the mystery, this one had more character development around the mysteries but the mysteries were not as smooth flowing. Overall enjoyable.
