The first book in the Fethering series

Oct 12, 2010

This is the first in Simon Brett's Fethering series. For those of you who are not regular readers of mysteries there is a category known as "cozies" and this series fits nicely into that category. Cozies are typically set in quaint, small towns or villages with characters you can easily imagine as your own friends and neighbours. The Body on the Beach introduces us to Carole and Jude - very believable amateur sleuths - who live in Fethering, England. I am currently reading this for the second time and it is holding up very well. Highly recommended if you would like to try a cozy.
