It was a clear, sunny day, and I had a lovely afternoon planned.

But you know what they say about best-laid plans in Bigfoot Bay.

What ghost up, must come down.

Turns out I can communicate with spirits. Lucky me.

Before I know it, I’m investigating the suspicious death of a family friend and turning up more dirt than a graveyard.

Secrets are like weeds – root out one and another pops up in its place.

Too bad for one particular hoity-toity resident spreading rumors about me.

What ghost around, comes around.

Homicide and Hot Tubs (Divine Place Supernatural Cozy Mystery Book 2) by [Chase, Annabel]Welcome to Divine Place, because sometimes a fresh start requires a little divine intervention.

Eloise Worthington is living her best afterlife. It helps that she was accidentally deposited in the supernatural section where immortals are put out to pasture. As the lone human among gods, witches, and a bevy of other species, it’s all too apparent that she and her cat Mischief don’t belong, not that Eloise minds what anyone else thinks. She’s happy to take advantage of the village amenities and spend her eternal middle-aged years ogling the hot bods of the demigods.

When a villager ends up facedown in a hot tub, Eloise reluctantly drags herself out of the spa in order to put on her marshal badge and get to work. Unfortunately for Eloise, there are plenty of reasons to want the victim obliterated and everyone wants to take credit for the deadly deed. With more confessions than clues, Eloise needs help from the one demigod she hopes to avoid. Who knew trying to be better would make her so bitter?

Can Eloise identify the real killer or is she finally out of her depth?

None the Wiser: A page-turning murder mystery (Detective Mark Turpin Book 1) by [Amphlett, Rachel]What if some secrets were never meant to stay buried?

When a parish priest is brutally murdered in cold blood, a rural community is left in shock – and fear.

After a second priest is killed, his broken body bearing similar ritualistic abuse, the police are confronted by a horrifying truth – there is a serial killer at large with a disturbing vendetta.

As fear grips the once tranquil countryside, Mark and his team race to uncover a tangle of dark secrets and lies before the killer strikes again.

In doing so, Mark finds out that the truth is more twisted than he could ever have imagined…

CONSTABLE ON THE HILL a perfect feel-good read from one of Britain's best-loved authors (Constable Nick Mystery Book 1) by [RHEA, NICHOLAS]

DISCOVER YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE SERIES. MEET BRITAIN’S BEST-LOVED BOBBY.

‘It’s original, it’s funny…one of life’s little pleasures.’ – Yorkshire Post

THE BOOKS WHICH INSPIRED HEARTBEAT

The brilliantly entertaining and heartwarming books behind the hit 90s TV series “Heartbeat”. One of the top ten most watched shows of the decade.

Stories of a constable on his village beat in North Yorkshire. All very gentle and far, far removed from the hurly burly of modern day city policing.” Daily Telegraph

Policeman Nick Rhea has been posted to the country with his wife Mary and their three small children. They move into the police house, high on a ridge overlooking the moors. It sits on the edge of the village of Aidensfield — “probably the most beautiful site in the country”.

“These books… do for the police service in North Yorkshire what James Herriot did for the vets there… very relaxing, very readable” Manchester Evening News

In the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside of the 1960s, Constable Nick’s roles are as varied as the eccentric villagers.

He handles every encounter with his characteristic humour, humanity and professionalism.

His investigations include the case of a clever pony who keeps escaping, a woman running through town naked, and a pack of Canadian timber wolves hanging out in a bus shelter.

IT’S NOT THE BIG CITY BUT THE YORKSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE IS STILL FULL OF INCIDENT

He soon gets to know all the characters on his beat, from his superior officer Sergeant Blaketon to Claude Jeremiah Greengrass, whose lurcher Alfred lands him with a summons for “allowing a dog to worry livestock on agricultural land.” The ever-resourceful Claude Jeremiah offers the defence that Alfred’s victim, a budgie, cannot be described as livestock!

Perfect for fans of James Herriot, TE Kinsey, Gerald Durrell, J. R. Ellis or anyone who loves a great read.

DISCOVER ONE OF BRITAIN’S MOST ENJOYABLE AUTHORS

CONSTABLE NICK’S COLLEAGUES
Sergeant Oscar Blaketon. A good, solid and dependable character who runs his little police station with fierce efficiency but under a tough exterior, is full of warmth, generosity and kindness

PC Alf Ventress. The old, easy-going constable whose local knowledge is vital to the running of Ashfordly Police Station. He does like Mrs Ventress’s hard-boiled eggs!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT NICHOLAS RHEA

“Recommended if it’s laughter you’re after” Bolton Evening News

“Richly entertaining” Yorkshire Evening Post

Splendid reading.’ – Police Journal

“To be really blunt, this is not my normal reading fare, but I loved it.” Nancy

“I enjoyed this tremendously.” Melissa

“A wonderful and relaxing dip into the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.” David

“A highly entertaining book which anyone who is looking for easy and humorous reading will enjoy.” Granny

IN THE AUTHOR’S OWN WORDS
“The concept of the Constable books arose because I wanted to write a book which showed that the police undertook much work which was not associated with crime or detective investigations. As I had served as a village constable in a delightful part of the North York Moors, it seemed logical to use that experience as a background to the stories, and to add a touch of humour which is always present in police work.”

Book 1: CONSTABLE ON THE HILL
Book 2: CONSTABLE ON THE PROWL
Book 3: CONSTABLE AROUND THE VILLAGE
Book 4: CONSTABLE ACROSS THE MOORS

Mimi Lee Gets a Clue (A Sassy Cat Mystery Book 1) by [Chow, Jennifer J.]Mimi Lee is in over her head. There’s her new Los Angeles pet grooming shop to run, her matchmaking mother to thwart, her talking cat Marshmallow to tend to—oh, and the murder of a local breeder to solve…now if only Mimi hadn’t landed herself on top of the suspect list. 

Mimi Lee hoped to give Los Angeles animal lovers something to talk about with her pet grooming shop, Hollywoof. She never imagined that the first cat she said hello to would talk back or be quite so, well, catty—especially about those disastrous dates Mimi’s mother keeps setting up. 

When Marshmallow exposes local breeder Russ Nolan for mistreating Chihuahuas, Mimi steals some of her cat’s attitude to tell Russ off. The next day the police show up at Hollywoof. Russ has been found dead, and Mimi’s shouting match with him has secured her top billing as the main suspect. 

Hoping to clear her name and save the pups Russ left behind, Mimi enlists help from her dreamy lawyer neighbor Josh. But even with Josh on board, it’ll take Mimi and Marshmallow a lot of sleuthing and more than a little sass to get back to the pet-grooming life—and off the murder scene.  (Amazon)
