Publisher's Summary

Very little disturbs the ordered calm of Fethering, a pleasingly self-contained retirement town on England's southern coast. Which is precisely why Carole Seddon, who has outlived both her husband and her career at the Home Office, has chosen to reside there. So the last thing Carole expects to encounter in Fethering is a new neighbour with but one name and an obviously colourful past. 

'Jude' was not really Fethering...but neither was the body Carole found on the beach. A body, it has to be said, that has disappeared by the time the police arrive. Only Jude is ready to believe what her neighbour says she saw - and from that moment on, the two women are resolved to turn detectives.

A great read

I loved this book. A calm, mellow read with dry humour woven into each chapter. Really engaging and can't wait to read a second novel. The voice of the narrator was perfect.

Comfortable Listen

I don't particularly like humour mixed in with my detective fiction and yet I did find some of the humorous comments and descriptions in this story really did appeal to me. Its a bit lightweight with a heavily vintage feel but a perfectly enjoyable listen. I wouldn't want to listen to the series wall to wall but will certainly dip into this series again when I'm at a loss for a listen at sometime in the future.

Good old fashioned tongue in cheek mystery

Well written, well read with some spots of humour. I am definitely downloading the next one!
