Cherringham -- The Last Puzzle

Cherringham – The Last Puzzle by Neil Richards and Matthew Costello is one is a series of sixteen cozy mysteries.  Michael Edwards is going to his friends, Quentin Andrews to play chess.  It is something they do every week.  When Michael arrives, no one answers the door.  Michael tries calling Quentin and no answer.  Michael finds the door unlocked and enters to find Quentin dead in his bedroom.  It looks like Quentin died of a heart attack.

At the reading of his will, Tony Standish has a surprise for the four heirs.  In order for one of them to inherit the entire 10 million pound estate, they will have to solve a crossword puzzle.  The clues can all be found in the town of Cherringham.  Sarah Edwards (Michael’s daughter) and Jack Brennan (a NYPD retired copy who now lives in Cherringham) are the observers or witnesses.  They will check in with the four heirs to make sure they are not cheating or working together.  Jack does not believe that Quentin died naturally.  Jack and Sarah investigate the death as well as the heirs.

Cherringham – The Last Puzzle is a charming British cozy mystery.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars.  It is a good story with likeable characters.  The mystery is very easy to solve (just follow the clues).  The book can easily be read in two hours. 

I received a complimentary copy of Cherringham – The Last Puzzle from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

Happy Monday!   I am currently reading The Rhyme of Magpies by Marty Wingate.  What are you currently reading?  Have any suggestions on books I can add to my stack?  You can also contact me via Facebook or Twitter (@booklover43).  Have a great day and Happy Reading!
