Read full description of the books The Body on the Beach:I am always on the lookout for cozy mysteries that don't have themes (knitting, food, herb shops, what-have-you). I don't know how I managed to miss Simon Brett for so long, but I am really glad I finally ran across his books. This is the first of the Fethering mysteries, named for their setting, the seaside town of Fethering, England. The main characters are well drawn and could very easily be people that I know. They have enough personal quirks to make them interesting, but not so many that they become mere eccentrics. The Body on the Beach had an intricate enough plot that I was kept guessing pretty much up to the end. For the most part the characters behaved in understandable and realistic ways. **SPOILER ALERT** The only part of the book that I found unbelieveable was when Carole found the body. She was so unconcerned that she came home and washed her dog and cleaned up the kitchen before calling the police two hours later. I suppose the author may have been showing she was in shock, but if so he never brought it up later in the novel.
That aside, this is an enjoyable series and I am looking forward to reading more of Simon Brett's work.
