Excellent cosy crime,
This review is from: The Shooting in the Shop (Fethering Mysteries 11) (Hardcover)
I always look forward to the annual Fethering Mystery. It's fun to see how Jude's intuition married with Carole's pragmatic approach will come up with the solution to the crime. And they don't disappoint in this their eleventh outing as amateur sleuths.
As usual, Simon Brett's dialogue sparkles and his supporting characters are interesting and real. I particularly liked the Grand Dame actress and Ricky Le Bonnier's hippy-dippy first wife. I felt that as well as portraying Fethering as a close knit community, Simon Brett also showed the loneliness of living in such a place.
Fethering is the sort of small town that Miss Marple would be at home in. It's also a little like Midsomer; Carole and Jude's murder investigations would make great TV. Why haven't they been given their own series?
