It's winter in the small town of Dewstow, and Margery is preparing for her first Christmas as Summerview school's kitchen manager. As they stumble their way into an investigation, we can see a few twists, turns, and a true mystery unfold.

In Love Is Not Enough, Mark’s first Audible Original, you’ll follow five real people over the course of six months as they navigate f--ked up romantic situations, ranging from dating app addiction to marital affairs to absurd fantasies. The sky outside was grey and miserable, a damp kind of darkness that sucked any remnants of joy from the tidy cul-de-sac on Seymour Road. Also I wonder whether the author actually knows anyone in their 60s, as Clementine and Margery seem more like 90-year-olds with their slow walking, shakes, inability to drive faster than 20kph, ignorance of modern tech, and bedtimes before 8pm.I found myself laughing out loud at some of the absurdities and the chaos that Clementine and Margaret wrought.

The deceased sounded like a mean-spirited prankster, so it was clear that there could be any number of possible suspects even if the leads were the only ones who seemed to think there had been any wrongdoing. The taverna is the only place that Kostas and Defne can meet in secret, hidden beneath the blackened beams from which hang garlands of garlic and chilli peppers, creeping honeysuckle, and in the centre, growing through a cavity in the roof, a fig tree. When Caroline Hughes, the elderly kitchen manager, is found dead in the walk-in freezer, everyone is shocked.I seriously considered abandoning the read several times, but having invested a week of reading time, I forced myself to finish. For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare--poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. I'm usually okay with that, especially in a first in series book when characters and setting have to be established.

But Clementine and Margery are suspicious as things aren't adding up, they delve into the death and suspect it's really murder. The plot is stupid - a murder mystery that literally ends up being solved by the two main characters being told who did it. Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship. I could easily imagine them starting up a detective agency following their retirement, should they choose to.

It is not overly descriptive which I really love, I just want to get to the crooks of the story and not have to go through all the descriptive nonsense around it. It feels adjacent to the book Victoria Wood might one day have gifted us had she turned her many talents to novel writing.
