A Share in Death by Deborah Crombie is a 1993 publication.

This series debut got off on a solid enough footing, introducing us to Duncan Kincaid and his partner, Gemma James.

Duncan takes a reluctant, but much needed vacation at a Yorkshire timeshare, only to find himself embroiled in a murder investigation.

This book reads like a traditional or classic British cozy mystery and it’s easy to see why it quickly gained a following and is so successful.

This first installment is not overly complicated, dark, or heavy, and even has some wry humor thrown in on occasion, with a human-interest story to cap things off. Duncan is a terrific character, especially here, where is gets most of the spotlight. Gemma’s character was slightly muted, but I realize we are just getting started, and I already know her character will develop quite nicely as we go along.

This is a short read, easy read, and was lots of fun. I am feeling pretty excited about working my way through this series, which is something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time now.

I did read a later release a long while back, but while the mystery was fine, the interpersonal dynamics between longtime recurring characters left me totally in the dark. So, it was obvious that even if the mystery elements can be read as a stand alone, if I really wanted to enjoy the series to the maximum, I’d have to start at the beginning.

I see this series now has a whopping seventeen installments, but I am determined to read through them all, and eventually, hopefully, get caught up with it.

Overall, this is an entertaining read any mystery fan can enjoy. ( )

I love it when perusing my library's audiobook section nets me the beginning of a new series. I thoroughly enjoyed this English mystery and immediately set about to get my hands on the next one. The characters are fresh and interesting and their relationship promises to develop in intriguing ways without getting in the way of the main plot. If you like police procedurals that offer more than just procedure I think you'll enjoy this one. ( )
