Things are looking up for Adam Matthews and Robin Bright—their relationship is blossoming, and they’ve both been promoted. But Robin’s a policeman, and that means murder is never far from the scene.
When a body turns up in a shallow grave at a Roman villa dig site—a body that repeatedly defies identification—Robin finds himself caught up in a world of petty rivalries and deadly threats. The case seems to want to drag Adam in, as well, and their home life takes a turn for the worse when an ex-colleague gets thrown out of his house and ends up outstaying his welcome at theirs.
While Robin has to prove his case against a manipulative and fiendishly clever killer, Adam is trying to find out which police officer is leaking information to the media. And both of them have to work out how to get their home to themselves again, which might need a higher intelligence than either a chief inspector or a deputy headteacher.
Adam has a new job at a new school, Robin's working to combine police officers from different locations into one group, and Robin's former Sergeant is thrown out of his house and needs putting up. Sounds like a perfect time for a murder or two!
How I love sinking back into Charlie Cochrane's cozy mystery series, Lindenshaw Mysteries, now on it's third book, Two Feet Under. From the first story,The Best Corpse for the Job (Lindenshaw Mysteries, #1), we've watched Robin and Adam become a couple, establish a home ( Jury of One (Lindenshaw Mysteries #2) , and now become happy in their relationship. As they've grown more secure in themselves as partners and in their relationship, it's been wonderful to watch their dynamics change, not only when at home but during the investigations as well. Because once a body pops up, somehow all clues or a few unlikely leads will point towards Adam. Or someone he knows. Or perhaps even something that Campbell has buried in the garden...you can never be sure how Campbell is involved. But that Newfie will be important somehow! Ah, the thrill of anticipation.
Here in Two Feet Under, the mysteries were wonderfully challenging! It wasn't just Adam, Robin, and his crew muttering to themselves as they tried to figure out whodunnit. I too was at the crossroads a few times on this one. How delicious! Plus we also got the mole in the station, all the great side characters that ramble through the villages around and near Abbotson. We tumble through the local pubs, out into the streets, and across the wild hillsides in pursuit of killers and the truth. It's wonderful.
Or sometimes, we just deal with the fact we have an unwelcome guest we need to figure out how to boot out of our house. There's that too. One whose been a staple character in the first two stories. Oh my.
All that, plus not forgetting the love and warmth of the relationship between Robin and Adam. Charlie Cochrane pulls is all together famously!
Here's a cozy to spend the night with. Or day with. Or both. I read it right through because I had to know whodunnit. I was completely satisfied with the ending. Now I can't wait for the next mystery to roll out and my next visit with Adam, Robin, and Campbell.
If you love mysteries and romance, a fan of cozies, don't let this series or book pass you by! The writing is wonderful. Charlie Cochrane has done it again! I highly recommend them both. They'll charm you into forgetting that maybe you should be looking over your shoulder! Murder's like that!
Cover art by L.C. Chase is so much fun. You've got to have that wonderful Newfie, Campbell, on the cover, he's in the middle of everything, so bloody smart!
I really liked that this book changed things up a bit with the characters–and in a way that didn’t require the couple to have a completely stupid fight so the book could be all about Robin and Adam getting back together (by far my biggest pet peeve about series centered around a single couple). Having Robin and Adam change jobs (or at least job locations) gave them both new people to interact with, as well as giving the book an air of uncertainty. Was sad to see that Robin and Anderson had to split up (professionally) since Robin got moved to a new precinct (or whatever the English equivalent is), but since Anderson basically spends the book sharing space with Robin and Adam, I didn’t feel the loss too badly.
The new cast of characters–both those I assume will stay around for a bit, and the tertiary characters needed for this plot alone–were just great. Pru and Ben–officers working under Robin at his new position–were good sounding boards for Robin. I really hope they come into play in later books because I really enjoyed them.
And all the various suspects and witnesses that were involved in the mystery aspect of the plot were what really made this book. While I still think book one was my favorite story overall, this one has my favorite mystery. You could never know what was really going on with everyone involved in this case, and I could never really predict where the story was going. And I was really glad that this story did not involve a certain event near the end that would have made me roll my eyes a bit at the predictability.
This was just on the whole an entirely enjoyable story. The chemistry between Robin and Adam is a bit low-key, but it is still very real. They are comfortable in their relationship, and while there are bumps in the road, they are nothing that doesn’t happen in real-life couples. And the fade-to-black aspect (or the fact that the book is set up to keep them temporarily c*ck-blocked by Anderson) might bug others, but it is probably one of the big sells for me. These books tend to focus on the mystery more than the relationships, anyways, and so it wasn’t anything I went in expecting to find. I do like the ingenious way the plot contrived to keep them apart though. I thought Adam’s reaction to not wanting to have sex with Anderson in the house to be rather adorable, and completely in character.
What else can I say? I loved it, and can’t wait till we can get a fourth story in the series.
