As much as I love Agatha Christie, I m not such a fan of cozy mysteries The Yorkshire Murder Mystery series is an exception DCI Oldroyd, like his admired Sherlock Holmes, is a quirky but effective detective and his cases are always tightly plotted and unpredictable This fifth volume is no exception We know who was killed and by whom, what Oldroyd and his crack team lack is a motive Or a suspect, who has disappeared As always, everyone in the little town where the action takes place is hidi As much as I love Agatha Christie, I m not such a fan of cozy mysteries The Yorkshire Murder Mystery series is an exception DCI Oldroyd, like his admired Sherlock Holmes, is a quirky but effective detective and his cases are always tightly plotted and unpredictable This fifth volume is no exception We know who was killed and by whom, what Oldroyd and his crack team lack is a motive Or a suspect, who has disappeared As always, everyone in the little town where the action takes place is hiding something This time, Andy and Steph are both involved in the same investigation, which is great because I love their dynamics and their constant loving competition to impress their boss There are also other cops involved in the case who bring interesting interactions with the usual characters I also loved the explanation to the mystery, I was blindsided completely, even if it made a lot of sense The one thing I didn t like was that the dialogues were a little repetitive at times We kept getting recaps of what had happened and all the theories Unless you re not an attentive reader, they were unnecessary in my opinion Other than that, it s a great, solid mystery I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased Thank you, NetGalleyPublishing UK With thanks to Netgalley andPublishing UK for a digital copy of The Nidderdale Murders I was attracted to this book because of my dual passions for the Yorkshire Dales and detective novels I hadn t read any other books in this series and although there is reference to previous cases in the book you do not need to have read them to enjoy this I instantly felt at home in the landscape as familiar Dales scenery is described, place names punctuate the narrative and the inn at the heart of With thanks to Netgalley andPublishing UK for a digital copy of The Nidderdale Murders I was attracted to this book because of my dual passions for the Yorkshire Dales and detective novels I hadn t read any other books in this series and although there is reference to previous cases in the book you do not need to have read them to enjoy this I instantly felt at home in the landscape as familiar Dales scenery is described, place names punctuate the narrative and the inn at the heart of the story reminded me of happy holiday visits to similar hostelries Every time sandwiches were served I felt hungry A murder shatters the peace of a sleepy Yorkshire village and Oldroyd and his team are sent in to unravel the crime committed in full view of a witness yet seemingly impossible to solve I loved the sense of place, the observations of a rural community and police force which all brought a gentleness to the read It reminded me of the later Midsommer Murders A lovely read for lovers of the Dales, intriguing crimes, likeable detectives and not too much blood

During a long career teaching English, I wrote plays for children and occasional ghost stories I have always been fascinated by the paranormal and by mysteries, conspiracy theories and unexplained crimes My love of my native county is deep and the settings of my Yorkshire Murder Mysteries within Yorkshire s varied landscapes are important I have made a study of the sub genre of the Locked Room Mystery during the height of its popularity between 1930 1960 in the stories of writers such as John Dickson Carr, Clayton Rawson and Ellery Queen I was an avid watcher of BBC s Jonathan Creek in its heyday I believe the element of puzzle is essential to crime fiction and my novels contain a double mystery the standard who dunnit but also how dunnit I avoid the dark and gruesome in my writing and I strive to include some humour and elegance in style, a vivid sense of place and a compelling mystery My characters both innocent and guilty are mostly ordinary people.I am a member of a writers group in Otley which has inspired me to write poetry and various forms of short fiction.
