I've enjoyed all the series so far and gave this one 5 instead of 6 stars only because some readers may find the plot a little predictable, however, don't be put off as there is usually a little twist to the tales and have a good element of humour. The characters are likeable, even grumpy old Joe who owns and runs a café somewhere in Yorks (my imagination tells me it could be between Wakefield and Doncaster).
Having been born and bred in Yorkshire, I love the accuracy of the locations of the club's many outings, which makes it easy to visualise.
This tale takes us not far from Joe's café. Poor old love starved Joe thinks he's found someone at last and persuades one of his employees/best friends to ask the lady in question to join him and his 3rd age club on the Valentine's outing. Of course, after a good start, things don't go according to plan.
If you like mysteries that are 'comfortable' without the usual gratuitous violence, then you will enjoy this.

This is a thoroghly enjoyable read. Loved everything about it. I have read a few books by this author and enjoyed every one of them. The characters are real and down to earth. I could not guess who the killer was. Very well plotted and well witten.
After I finished reading it I was still enjoying the memory of it for a couple of days. The humour is so well done.
What I want to know is - how can I join the Sanford 3rd Age Club? They are my kind of people.

I am finding this series is deteriorating. The relentless harping on about Joe's grumpiness and the cliched incompetence of the police is getting tedious.

I liked the 12 chapters of this book but, I did not get the end chapters of the book. I just had to guess the end.
