Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have been reading the series from the start and as is usually the case with these prolific authors, the quality slowly goes downhill as they constantly meet publishing deadlines. This series has slowly morphed from a police procedural bent to more of a police based soap opera. The depth of narrative about all the characters and their relationships has almost over shadowed the mystery plot.
Fine for some, but not my cup of tea I could not finish this last one and will discontinue the series In this book number 9 in the series the author moves away from London and the English countryside to the Highlands of Scotland. Brilliantly researched as usual - the reader feels at home in Scotland with Deborah Crombie's descriptive narrative and of course her outstanding ability to have the characters just leap off the page! A complex plot utilising the author's favourite technique of delving into the past generations to explain the angst of the current descendants.
A little too much like a "romantic thriller" rather than a crime mystery perhaps. Some readers may be a tad disappointed to see some of their most likeable characters from earlier books going through very hard times - but Deborah Crombie seems to delight in dragging we readers back into reality rather than wallowing in too much pleasant fantasy about life as we may like it to be. The conclusion is as expected from all her books - very satisfying with all the loose ends nicely tied up. The biographical blurbs in the back of Deborah Crombie's English mystery novels insist that she was born and lives in Texas.
Hazel's husband Tim seems a totally different character here than in the earlier stories, though he wasn't often mentioned, and this seems like the author manipulated the character for the plot. True, we had only seen him through Gemma's eyes. As Gemma and Duncan have too often found in their detective work, alas, all is not as it seems. Nov 19, Matt Schiariti rated it it was amazing. Crombie just seems to have a bottomless well of ideas and the ability to spindle them into a fantastic and addicting read.
This novel almost reminds me of a Share In Death, the book that started this fantastic series. A holiday gone wrong, Gemma is invited to her friend Hazel's old homeland in Scotland for what seems to be an innocent weekend of cooking school with some of Hazel's old childhood friends. What it is in fact, is Hazel's excuse to revisit an old lover, one she nearly married before a Crombie just seems to have a bottomless well of ideas and the ability to spindle them into a fantastic and addicting read. What it is in fact, is Hazel's excuse to revisit an old lover, one she nearly married before an old family feud Hazel's and Donald's families both came from a whiskey making tradition tore them apart, causing Hazel to leave her beloved birthplace and move to London, get married and have a family.
Gemma never knew her friend as well as she thought apparently because it turns out Hazel's been unhappy in her life for quite some time.
The Sound of Broken Glass. This book takes Gemma James to Scotland for a cookery weekend that soon includes a murder. Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon. How to write a great review. Love Isn't a Show.
In fact, she may never have been happy at all, always looking to the past and Donald Brodie, the Scostman lover who got away. Gemma is incensed to find all this out of course, feeling betrayed and used as an excuse so Hazel could seemingly carry on an affair behind her husband Tim's back. But that's not the least of Gemma's worries. One bump in the road turns into many as Hazel's old flame turns up shot dead in the woods and the prime suspect is none other than Hazel.
This is primarily a Gemma James book, and a good one at that. Not to say Duncan's not in it. He's got his own family trouble to deal with back in London in the form of his son Kit, but the focus is on Gemma. Also, as has become a staple in this series, the novel flashes back, giving insight on what happened before any of the characters were even born.
The flashbacks are a mystery within a mystery, shedding light on what lead up to the family feud. This is just a fantastic mystery, plain and simple. The characters are rich, the setting is vivid and Crombie does a wonderful job of keeping you guessing. As usual, several people have motives but the motive and criminal are never what and who you expect. Another great addition to this stupendous series. Nov 20, Tina rated it really liked it Shelves: Very favorite installment of the series so far.
Would have been five stars except once again the author travels unnecessarily into the land of the woo-woo with present day Hazel having prophetic or rather anti-prophetic? I think this is the first time I really was upset and sad about the victim. So far in this series I have been apathetic about the actual life of he vict Very favorite installment of the series so far.
So far in this series I have been apathetic about the actual life of he victims. Even though the author has taken pains in previous books to make the victim a 'person' and not just the necessary element of a mystery to be solved, I never connected with them. But in this one I was very upset view spoiler [ Donald was the victim. I thought the author made him such a magnetic personality even in the smallish amount of time he spent in the book. Great story and I liked how she gleefully up-ended Hazel's life to give us this installment.
Didn't think I would but it adds some nice continuity to the series. View all 3 comments. The plot seemed to hinge on a lot of improbabilities and coincidences, plus some woo-woo stuff Gemma's friend Hazel is somehow dreaming the dreams of her long-dead great-grandmother? I also could have done without the faux Scots dialect that some of the characters speak--it's stereotypical and intrusive, and doesn't really add much to the characterization.
Still, that's not much to complain about in a series that is otherwise very well-written and plotted. By this, the ninth book in the series, Crombie has earned the right to a miss. Another interesting mystery in the Kincaid and James series. I like the way Deborah Crombie mixed the old journal entries into the present account. It has been several years since I read this first in the series, so jumping in at 9 is a bit unusual for me.
I enjoyed the weekend cooking school in Scotland setting. The plot was excellent, and the writing very clear and straightforward. I had no problem picking up the threads of Gemma's life, no apparent spoilers for earlier books that I am aware of. Besides, it might be another few years before I resume the series in sequence, and by then I may have forgotten the specifics revealed here. I borro It has been several years since I read this first in the series, so jumping in at 9 is a bit unusual for me. I borrowed a friends copy. Oct 25, Angela rated it really liked it.
Most series the characters relationships stay stagnant yet in this one she allows the people to grow and make mistakes and love and live. Apr 21, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: This time, it's set in England and in the Scottish Highlands. For this series, the readers are introduced to a bit of historical fiction to set up the scene.
When I've read this book, I'm transported back in time for those historical fiction flashbacks and then travel to the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Highlands. As a reader, the beautiful scenic depictions takes me there and later back to her native England. When Gemma meets her neighbor Hazel and others at a cookery class there, we're there with her, observing the people and scene as a tourist. Later, I noticed a bit of conflict between Hazel and Donald Brodie. It's something that worried me and others, like it did for Gemma.
Back home in England, I sensed tension between Kincaid and his son Kit build up.
But I could see there's love between Kincaid and Gemma, a newfound love, whether there's on the phone or in person. I sensed turmoil and shock, when Gemma discovers a dead body. I watch her transform to a police officer on the scene, questioning others and wonder about the background.
This book kept me glued to the end. Also available through audible. In this tenth book in the series, Gemma impulsively went with Hazel to Scotland to the home, and winery where she had been raised. They were going for a weekend, but Gemma soon found out that Hazel was planning to reunite with the man she almost married, from an opposing winery. It She was using the weekend to decide whether or not to leave Tim and live with, or marry her former love.
This put Gemma in an awkward situation, and she soon realized that there were many undercurrents going on. Then there is a murder. A very good book, very suspenseful, and involving not only the current two winery families but their ancestors as well. Mar 05, Joe rated it did not like it Shelves: This book has the template of this series' earlier entries - the weaving of plots past and present, a cast of characters tied together in a murder investigation and Gemma and Duncan balancing police work with their personal relationship and children.
What is blatantly absent is a gripping story line. There are love triangles aplenty, more than enough information for this reader on the distillery industry and plenty of conversations about food but the murder mystery never gains any traction. If you are new to this series, start at the beginning for this addition contains none of the subtlety, complexity and depth of those very good books.
Some cooking goes on but the main theme is that Gemma's friend who once lived in the area and was almost married to the distillery owner is still attracted despite being long married. When the Owner turns up dead, every one at the inn are suspect as well as several of the local residents. Despite being way out of her jurisdiction Gemma can't help be involved, epically since here friend becomes the main suspect. A good tale with lots of background of the Scotch distillery business and a side of a memoir from early years involving the ancestors of some if the current characters.
Jun 20, Mary Ronan Drew rated it liked it. Whisky is at the heart of this Deborah Crombie mystery featuring her detectives Gemma James, now promoted to Detective Inspector, and her partner Duncan Kinkaid. Gemma finds herself in Scotland, increasingly wrapped up in the problems of a precariously financed distillery owned by friends of her former housemate, Hazel Cavendish.
I learned more than I needed to know about how whisky is distilled, aged, bottled, and distributed. Eventually Duncan joins her as they scramble to find the real murderer. I won this book from William Morrow through GoodReads, first-reads giveaway. This story gives you a real feel of the Highlands of Scotland, a small village, the wide open spaces, its hard working people to survive and endure in a harsh land. It's about the past generations and how they affect the present generation. It's about a crime and who did the deed and why that kept me guessing back and forth among the various characters.
I enjoyed this interesting, well-written read, the charact I won this book from William Morrow through GoodReads, first-reads giveaway.

Apr 16, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: Three and a half stars for this, because this Scottish story was a wee bit slow in getting interesting, and then I found the final explanation contrived, as Claude said; rather too suddenly and neatly wrapped up.
But I do so enjoy the private thread about Duncan, Gemma and their little family.

Aug 05, Kyrie rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked the blend of stories from the past with the current events. I liked the variety of families and their relationships. I liked the vast array of suspects, all with reasons for and against being the murderer. I just really like this series. Nov 09, Sherrie Marshall Spitz rated it it was amazing. Another killer Gemma and Kincaid escapade. I love this series, its characters, settings, and story lines.
Actually, unknown to Gemma, Hazel is there to meet the man she is considering leaving her husband for, her old flame from years ago.
Meanwhile, back in London, Duncan is dea I love this series, its characters, settings, and story lines. Meanwhile, back in London, Duncan is dealing with more drama and angst regarding his son Kit. All these factors combine to make another great entry to this series. Jun 02, Kathy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Gemma and her friend Hazel have gone to Scotland for a cooking class over a long weekend.
This is actually a homecoming for Hazel, and a chance to reconnect with her former lover, who is found shot to death, with Hazel a preliminary suspect. Gemma can't help but try to help with the investigation, and of course the local police don't appreciate her interference, a situation common to murder mysteries, but I often wonder how common in real life. The setting comes to life as we learn about the dis Gemma and her friend Hazel have gone to Scotland for a cooking class over a long weekend. The setting comes to life as we learn about the distilling of Scotch whiskey and connected historical events.

The only problem is she is still married and Gemma is less than happy to have been brought into the middle of this get away weekend. When the boyfriend is found murdered the suspects are numerous.
