    This book was a lot of fun to read If you like small town mysteries and don't want all the violence and intense crime scene descriptions this is the way to go I loved the descriptions in this book of the people and their lives I felt like I fell right into the story and became one of the locals and looked forward to every new chapter This book does not move along at a hurried pace but it is funny and kept me interested The camaraderie of the constable and the people he interacts with makes this book worth the time to read I thought the paranoia over the gooseberries was hilarious too This was lighthearted and fun and helped through a rough afternoon Recommended for those who like books with plenty of humour and great characters I will be going back for the rest of the books in the series now This review is based on a complimentary copy from the publisher provided through Netgalley All opinions are my own

    I received this free from NetGalley and Endeavour Press for an honest reviewI absolutely loved this book Told from the viewpoint of a Constable in a small England town I can only compare it to the James Herriot series All Creatures Great and Small with interesting yet believable characters brought to life This is the first book I have read in this series but it certainly is not going to be the last

    Book received from NetGalleyI love this series of books While they are British police procedurals they have a definite cozy feel to them The series takes place in the 1960's in the Yorkshire Dales a place I came to love while reading James Herriot's books What I enjoy the most about the series is that they don't focus on a murder mystery While there are some murders in the books you are just as likely to read about a robbery a missing person or kids who are annoying the local villagers These are a definite recommend for me

    Three main plot threads wind their way through the narrative in this Constable entry; a gooseberry size competition the declining health of the head of the gooseberry size competition and a string of racing bicycle thefts The narrowness of scope is rewarding as we can really dig into some of the footwork in the thief capturing plan but I couldn't care less about Joseph his fretting wife Mabel and the seventeenth conversation about whether he is really sick or if it's all in this old fool's head As such I ended up skimming like 40% of the book because A LOT of time is spent with Joseph and Mabel which necessarily taints my review I suggest giving this one a shot however because my disinterest in the emotional lives of this couple may be a indication of my own moral shortcomings rather than those of this narrativeI received an ecopy from the publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    I really enjoyed reading this book It took me awhile to finish it because I was reading it on my phone app and would read it only while waiting on something else I think it is a testament of how well I liked the book because I kept coming back to it Normally if I don't continue reading and let some time pass I lose interest in the story This was a comfortable gentle slow read You get a chance to really get to know the people in this small village There is no violence In fact the only mystery was who was behind the stolen racing cycles and who was going to win the gooseberry competition I highly recommend this book and thank the publisher and NetGalley for the advanced reading copy

    Dealing with small disputes between neighbours is Nick’s daily lifeHowever during the run up to the village Gooseberry growing contest there are shenanigans as contestants strive to winThe president of the Old Gooseberry Society retires suffers some dramatic weight loss Leaving speculation as to his reasons for his retirement from the position Putting aside their competitive nature the village groups together to raise fund to send him on a pilgrimage to Lourdes for a miracle cureSomeone is stealing some very expensive racing bikesThe thefts are seemingly random and appear to spread throughout the entire northeast regionsThen the thieves steal the new sergeant’s bike Nick is determined to put an end to itHe devises a plan will the thieves fall the baitAnother well written thoroughly enjoyable read from the author The characters are so well portrayed after reading a few books in the series I really feel that I know them The usual minor characters feature they all add to the enjoyment The plot isn’t fast pace but ambles along fast enough to keep you turning the pages there are minor humorous storylines as well as the serious one of bike stealing I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
