    1. The Witness at the Wedding by Simon Brett.Carole's son Stephen and his fiance Gaby are in the process of planning their wedding. The date is set for this September with none of the arrangements in order as of yet. Carole is looking forward to an afternoon lunch to meet with Gaby's parents but not exactly looking forward to that lunch to also include her ex David. She had been forewarned that the Martins were a little off the beaten path as far as being sociable people but that was not enough to [...]

    2. Unfortunately, I'm not too keen on the inner machinations of characters. I'd rather been shown, than told that she inwardly winced at this and then that. The story itself was fine and a fun read. I found it interesting that the sidekick is written as practically perfect; gentle, understanding, easy to talk to, etc While the main protagonist is not just flawed- but almost unlikable- and I mean almost. She is very set in her ways, and that may be why I retract from her. Though I do agree with her [...]

    3. Was an okay sort of cozy mystery - my first one by this author. I listened to the audio while at my routine household work and walking trips. Gaby and Steve are planning to marry, and Steve's mother Caroline, a type A personality, is worried about wedding arrangements and a possible reconciliation with her wimpy ex-husband David, which she doesn;t want and her only son Steve urges her to. Then she comes to know that Gaby's family is surrounded with murder and mysteries, which turn sinister withi [...]

    4. A controlled build up to the plot has the tension steadily mounting in Fethering and its environs and also for the reader. Initially no sign of anything seriously amiss, just plenty of reflecting on a major crime of the past, and then - a new murder! As is often the case in these provincial murders, there are amateur sleuths on hand to help the police, who sometimes cannot see the wood for the trees. Carole Seddon and her pals provide the back-up in this story, which reaches an exciting climax t [...]

    5. This is one of a series of books in the Fethering mysteries. The book was good except for the fact that I knew who the murderer was by the time I was 2/3rds through the book (possibly even half way, but I don't remember). There were one or two twists at the end that I hadn't guessed although one I thought was likely. I wanted to finish the book because I really liked the characters interplay and the writing makes you want to find out every detail.

    6. The continuing character development is nice. Carole reminds me quite a bit of my mother - very set in her ways and living a most insular life.Just wondering when we'll find out more about Jude, and when we'll see her "feet of clay".

    7. I listened to this on audiobook so maybe I got a little lost in all the detail, people and story lines. It was good, but not great.

    8. Love listening to the late Ralph Cosham, aka Geoffrey Howard, reading this series. He managed to convey all of the dry humor of Carole and Jude

    9. I liked this more than I sometimes do this series (still nowhere near as good as Brett's Charles Paris series), even though I was pretty sure I'd spotted the real villain early on (and I was right).

    10. I can't say it kept me guessing for too long and not my favourite of the Fethering Mysteries but enjoyable none the less and a good pace.

    11. Bless Carole Seddon, but she's a prickly old pear. As much as she harps and snipes about her ex-husband David's myriad social and marital shortcomings, she's no great prize, either, in those departments, and I'd bet my boots she had more than a minor hand in the collapse of her marriage. For all I know, much-maligned David might've been a different, much more social and confident man before he fell in with her and was beaten down by years of nitpicking.And I'm tired of St. Jude and her sad-sack [...]

    12. I love Simon Brett's Mrs. Pargeter series, and am intermittently fond of Charles Paris, but after reading two or three of this Feathering series, I am officially done with it.This author is so prolific, I suppose it is inevitable that some of his efforts will be misses. I don't like the neurotic portrayal of Carol. It seems anachronistic, like some of P.D. James' early portrayals of women in the Adam Dalgliesh series. The truth is, I can't stand these people in Feathering and don't want to spend [...]

    13. This was exactly the kind of cozy mystery I love. Carole and Jude were both excellent amateur sleuth characters, though I think I probably preferred Carole. She was such an excellently written character; her struggles with social situations I found instantly relatable and endeared her to me immediately. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is the ending felt a little predictable and the twists weren't all that surprising. It was still fun and worth reading for the character interactio [...]

    14. Do enjoy these mysteries, even if the solution is pretty well telegraphed midway through the book.It's the character interaction and the personalities that I find intriguing. THe author has really fleshed out characters - they are real and yet likeable.

    15. Retired civil servant Carole lives a quiet life in the British seaside town of Fethering. When her son announces his engagement, Carole is thrilled to be gaining a daughter in law, but perplexed that Gabby doesn't want the wedding announced, and that her parents are timid and socially awkward and seem to be frightened of something. Carole is also less than thrilled that she's going to have to spend time with her irritating ex-spouse again, but soon that's the least of her worries when Gabby's fa [...]

    16. This was an okay addition to the series. Brett set up the wedding in the last book. And here Carol has to meet with her ex - husband, her future in-laws. She gets closer to her future daughter - in-law and discovers that there may be a skeleton or so in her closet.Everything goes well until the engagement party that Marie and Howard want to throw for the kids. Marie faints and Howard winds up dead. Of Carol and Jude have to stick their big noses in.Okay, I never guessed the killer in this one.

    17. Simon Brett does not disappoint. This time we got to know Carol's ex-husband David -- very humorous description and of course I was feeling very protective of Carol. And we got to know her son Stephen who was marrying Gabby. Gabby's family was the one all tied up in a dark, deep family secret which involvedrder of course. Carol is in the thick of it. At one time I thought the murderer must be Robert -- just because he was the one that seemed the least likely to be the murderer and thenhe was! ha [...]

    18. Another wonderful mystery! In The Witness at the Wedding Carole's son is getting married and his fiancé's family has many secrets. Carole and Jude become embroiled in the family's mystery with some dangerous outcomes. Once again, the characters were interesting, the mystery intriguing, and parts of it were quite funny. I'm looking forward to the next in the series which I will start right away.

    19. Carole's son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law try to reunite her with her useless excuse for an ex-husband David while she and Jude (just Jude) pry apart the secrets of her son's fiancee's family's past. A little predictable.Musing with friends online about why we like some series I've decided that I like the age group here: women in their mid-50s. In 5 years I guess I'll move on to women in their 60s. Anyone got any suggestions?

    20. a fethering mystery this is a village in a southern county - NOT essex, as will be become clear! think of a modern day miss marple but with 2 amateur detectives - carole and jude - who r as different as chalk and cheese the former's son is getting married but all does not go smoothly with a few bodies blocking the party.i had my suspicions early on as to the culprit but this did not spoil it a classic who dun it -good dialogue - murder most enjoyable! bev

    21. Another good offering from Simon Brett. In this series, Carole Seddon, the putative protagonist, is about as off-putting as one could be, thus showing how facile Brett is, for the book is a real pleasure to read. As always, excellent plot, good pacing, twists aplenty, and a crackerjack finale. Brett is a prolific author, but he always gives you a good read that doesn't feel formulaic at all. Mystery fans, if you don't already read Simon Brett, you should!

    22. I can't with all honesty give this more than 2*. It's very lightweight and in it neither Carol nor Jude really do any detecting. The denouement came as no surprise - I had seen the 'baddie' from the moment he was introduced as were the revelations that followed. The biggest mystery is why Gaby had a French grandmother. That is never explained.

    23. I've not read this series nor this author before. I really liked it. Carole and her friend Jude work on solving a 30-year-mystery that involves the parents of Carole's son finance. Was a man sent to prison wrongfully for a murder and now the murderer has returned? How is Gabby, aka Pascal, connected to this case that occurred before she was born?

    24. Fun little murder mystery romp. I like to intersperse murder mysteries with my more literary reads as sort of a "palate cleanser". Often the literary novels I favour leave me emotionally shattered and I need something a bit light to draw me out of my mood. This was a good whodunnit in the traditional style. Loved it!

    25. I do love this series. I think I like the newer series "Blotto & Twinks" better, but these books are very quietly funny. Enough mystery to keep you guessing, but readable when my brain is partially liquified by heat.

    26. Another great Fethering mystery. I like Gabby a lot, I have to say! And I like that Carole is coming into her own a little more.I was a little confused about the ending, but I still enjoyed it. These are cozy and I always love the relationship between Jude and Carole.
