In what is almost becoming an annual event, 'Blood at the Bookies' is the latest episode in the lives of our Sussex-based sleuths, Carol and Jude. Having stumbled upon the series by chance, I have become a devotee of these cosy, fun mysteries. The latest will not disappoint fans, though it perhaps suffers a little from the relative lack of action outside of Feathering and what seems, at least to me, to be a shortage of viable suspects. I had guessed the culprit long before the final chapters and this can always be somewhat of a disappointment. It did not, however, spoil my enjoyment of a charming addition to the Feathering series. Long may Carol and Jude reign over the Sussex coast!
