What the Bloggers thought:
I love books with strong female characters like I’ve said in the past. I liked Libby’s character and the way she handled herself in various situations. I also liked the friendly atmosphere depicted in the book. I wasn’t raised in a village but I am familiar with the close relationships found in one. Everybody knows everyone and everyone helps out when need be. Read more here
This grabbed my interest immediately as I enjoy history and I couldn’t wait to begin reading. A body is found and the letter is proved to be a fake but the play still goes on. Read more here
I enjoyed the plot line for this one and it had a few good twists and turns built in to the plot which kept me engaged to the end. The book had a good pace and the characters were well developed and I will definitely be looking to read some of the author’s previous books. Read more here
Having never read any of the previous books in the series it’s always a worry that the characters and plot won’t sit just right. While there’s a couple of references to past events in the book, it wasn’t at all detrimental. In fact, I loved that the main characters were so well developed. Each had their own place and positions within the group. They all complimented each other beautifully. Read more here
‘Murder & The Glovemaker’s Son’ is extremely well written. As soon as I read the first page I just knew that this would be one book that I would find hard to put down and so it proved. I became seriously addicted to reading it and when I had to put the book down, I found myself practically counting down the time until I could pick it up again. Read more here
I don’t want to say too much about the story and spoil the book for you, but after having the chance to read this, I am definitely going to go and read the earlier books in the series, which are available on Amazon. Read more here
The mystery is solidly written with twists and turns along the way. The characters are wonderful. I love how all the residents of this village watch out for each other. As usual in such a place, you have a few that appear perfectly normal.. and some that don’t. Read more here
So this is the 19th book in the series, yes you read that right 19th, this has to be one of the longest running book series I’ve come across in years. I actually haven’t read any of the other books myself and I found there was a handy little glossary of regular characters in the front, which helped me to make sense of who was who etc. Read more here
THE GLOVEMAKERS SON by Lesley Cookman

19th Libby Sergeant mystery.
The Oast Theatre in Steeple Martin is hosting a touring production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night which is attracting a lot of attention. But very soon it begins to attract attention of an entirely different kind, when a document goes missing along with its owner. When a body turns up,
Libby Sarjeant and Fran Wolfe become involved with the investigation with the help, naturally, of their friends and relatives.

The Libby Sarjeant series is published by Accent Press, who also publish her book, How to Write a Pantomime, with a foreword by Roy Hudd.
