The Fethering Mysteries featuring Carole and Jude have been a favorite since the first one, The Body on the Beach. Two more different personalities are difficult to envision but they compliment each other very well. If you have not read earlier books you are in for a real treat.

Prior books tend to feature more of Carole and her life (Gulliver, her long suffering dog, and her son and his family) but this book is the first one to open up Jude's interior life to the reader. Jude seems so assured and serene that I sometimes have difficulty believing she could be a real person in prior books. This book lets us see Jude with some insecurities and how she achieves her serenity.

The setting is primarily in a town near Fethering and the change of scenery is also welcome. The problem with any long series is how to sustain belief that so many murders could happen in a small town. Simon Brett updates the series while keeping all the humor and the plot twists that have been a hallmark of this series.

Even though Simon Brett has written much better Fethering Mysteries (at least in my opinion) I still give this 4 stars. It wasn't my favorite but I still found the antics of Carole & Jude enjoyable. My only complaint is that in this book they really don't work together on solving a mystery but rather they each have their own separate mysteries to solve(which do end up tying together). As far as I'm concerned too much time is spent on details (such as really, really detailed tennis) and I must say that I miss the wonderful interactions of Carole & Jude in this one! I still love the Fethering Mysteries though and look forward to many more!

Simon Brett deserves applause for his Fethering mystery series. The corpse on the court brings a new perspective to Jude and Carol. The world of real tennis has piqued my curiosity. A good read.

An interesting divergence in relationship of Jude and Carole that adds an element of suspense to the mystery.

I've read all the Fethering mysteries and I enjoy the relationship of the two mismatched friends, Jude and Carole. The idea of the friends not working together and two stories being told simultaneously was a departure from their usual collaboration. This series is a typical light, fast read cozy, so not enough depth to give a 5-star rating. The centerpiece of the story was "real" (read that as royal) tennis about which I knew nothing. I think the author overdid a bit in the details of the game. I really needed a diagram of the court to get the hang of what he was describing. If you like light British cozies, the Fethering series is a good bet.

I read everything Brett writes and like them. This one was up to par but not the greatest. Worth reading, certainly, but not an A+.Still, I do recommend it but probably not if this is your first Fethering mystery.
Some feel this series is going stale but I'm still an enthusiastic fan,who loves to find out more about the mysterious Jude
