The Grantchester Mysteries

The Sidney Chambers (Grantchester Mysteries) by James Runcie came to my attention after I discovered Grantchester on PBS. Grantchester quickly became one of my favorite new mystery series to watch, and although I haven’t read the books, I do believe I’ll have to give them a try. I’ve been waiting anxiously for the series to return and I’m getting tired of waiting! For those of you who either prefer books to television, or enjoy combining the two, these books are worth a look.

If you want a matching set of covers, it looks like you’ll have to buy the hardcover editions for that. Here are the covers for the original hardcover books.

Now that looks more like a set, doesn’t it?

Have you read any of these books? How do they compare to the television series?

ETA: I finally got my set, but I haven’t had the chance to start reading yet. :)
