Description

We are introduced to the two main characters Samson O'Brien and Delilah (Dee) Metcalfe, and the fictional Dales village of Brunscliffe - based on Settle in Yorkshire. She runs the DDA - Dales Dating Agency - and is Samson's landlady - he also runs a DDA - the Dales Detective Agency. Having said all that, it was a gripping tale and I didn't want to stop till the denouement, which sadly fell slightly flat as the master criminal just seemed to fade out. But in each book we get a glimpse to the end game, so if you are going to start this series I recommend book one!

Following on from Date with Betrayal this new novel delights with its combination of beguiling charm and witty ingenuity. Samson and Delilah are totally and hopelessly in love with each other, like teenagers, but they have each been hiding their feelings. Stagg has also written a few novels that were set in the French Pyrenees but is now writing crime fiction under her other pen name. Grigore and Pavel have a series of adventures, live off food pinched from Seth Thistlethwaite's allotment, and steal a change of clothes from the Hargreaves washing line.

And so, after quite a few runs up on the fells where I do my best thinking, the Dales Detective Series was born. I have a confession to make before I start this review – I love Bruncliffe and all its inhabitants, I was itching to get back to the town.

There’s plenty of cosy crime shenanigans to enjoy but at the same time, there are issues of human nature and murder brought to the fore. Although one of the main story lines that has run throughout the series has been resolved, you are left with the definite feeling that there is much more to come and it is eagerly awaited by this reader!

She spent the majority of that time as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language but also dabbled in bookselling, pawnbroking and waitressing.
