My Thoughts on the Book
I really enjoy reading this series and Death Awaits in Durham didn't disappoint. I love the well-developed characters as well as the dynamics between them. The plot is well-written with several red herrings to throw you off, as well as a healthy dose of humour. Although it's labeled cosy mystery, it's a bit more gritty than the American counterparts, but it doesn't have that much "blood, guts and gore" thankfully.
