read: sidney chambers and the shadow of death by james runcie

It’s been a while since I did a proper review! I found this show, Grantchester, on Masterpiece in 2015 and instantly loved it. I wanted to see if the book was just as good as the show.

Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death (The Grantchester Mysteries #1)

It follows Sidney Chambers, a priest, who helps out detective Geordie Keating. The book is separated into six different mysteries, which include murder and theft.

So, the show can basically be described as “hott priest who solves mysteries and has sex”. It’s an interesting premise especially as it takes place in the ’50s. I was hoping the book would go a bit more in depth of the characters so it was slightly disappointing in that aspect. However, it is a series of some cozy mysteries. Sidney is such a lovely character and I’m very invested in his friendship with both Geordie and his sister’s friend, Amanda. And since I had watched the show, I remembered how some of the cases ended. But it’s still a solid read.
