If You Like Nicholas Rhea Books, You’ll Love…

Constable on the Hill is the first book in the Constable Nick Mystery series. Nick Rhea has been posted to the country and moves his family to the village of Aidensfield. The area is filled with eccentric visitors and Rhea handles himself with humour, humanity, and professionalism. This book sees him being looked upon suspiciously as a newcomer, but quickly being welcomed into the city. He will deal with a variety of complaints, including dog problems, fox hunts, and a circus parade. Rhea always finds a way to solve the problems and keep the community together.

Rhea is also the author of the Assured series which begins with Some Assured. Matthew Taylor begins work as an insurance agent. He’s excited for his new job, but what he never expected is to deliver a stallion foal and kill seven pigs on his very first day. That’s the kind of work that will happen in 1950s rural Delverdale, deep in the North York Moors. As Matthew makes his home here with his wife Evelyn and baby Paul, the family is happy to oblige.
