The aspect of this author that I admire the most is how well and seemingly smooth he is able to incorporate a wide cast of characters, feelings, and twist-and-turns into a plot that stays unpredictable, creative, and always interesting from each scene to the next. The story has some serious parts that almost remind me of a sort of mystery/suspense type of read, in the way that it keeps you hooked and on the edge of your seat – but ultimately, the vibe throughout the majority of this book is more of a light-hearted, upbeat, and certainly clever/witty romance type of read.
“Cogrill’s Mill” is the type of book that is humorous and laid-back enough to be read in small portions for those looking for a relaxing afternoon read, yet it also carries with it a unique undertone to it that, in my experience, often makes it hard to put down after attempting the aforementioned. In my opinion, author Jack Lindsey has proven that he can consistently deliver to readers books that are more than worth the read. I hope that he can continue keeping up the strong momentum through future books.
It seems like George has a fine rural life—with his cider-making and his fishing in the nearby stream—until a meddlesome elderly aunt decides to stick her nose into his life and screw things up. To make things right he gives Vicky the portion of his inheritance that was intended for her father who has since passed away and she quickly relocates. The problem is that once she is there, she starts changing everything.
I have become a fan of Jack Lindsey’s witty writing. His characters are multidimensional and relatable. His settings are vivid and always seem like a place I’d love to visit (or live). The plot itself is lighthearted and fast paced. I would suggest this book to anyone who loves clever English humor — with a bit of murder, romance, and treacherous villains tossed in for fun.
The main character George Cogrill, is more than content living by himself in his faithful mill with his Cider press making tasty cider from his delicious apples, it's truly like living the dream but of course sometimes things can upset the applecart and this comes in the form of his meddling Aunt, telling him he needs to make changes in his life and to make the most of his remaining years. He listens to her and from then on many things happen and the events of others as well as his own are changed greatly.
The way Jack Lindsey has created the characters have given them life like and believable appearances. There aren't many so it doesn't get confusing but they are interesting. It's a book that can be read in snippets and not cause the reader to get confused and lost.
I very much enjoyed Cogrill's Mill and would recommend it to others.
