(From the publisher):
There are changes in Aidensfield as Constable Nick continues his rural duties on the edge of the North York moors. With ex-Sergeant Blaketon occupying the village post office, and a new sergeant in Ashfordly to keep the constables in order, everyone must now adapt to a different regime.
Tourism is booming on the moors but this brings problems, such as an aged cyclist who always rides on the wrong side of the road, caravan drivers who cannot cope with the Yorkshire hills, motorists who run off the road for reasons they dare not reveal to their wives, a delivery man who uses a lawnmower to tow his trailer and townies who don't know a cow from a bull.
Meanwhile, Claude Jeremiah Greengrass gets marooned on a roof when someone steals his ladder, and Nick has to investigate some very inconvenient thefts while the Aidensfield oak tree planting ceremony is threatened by a dispute involving the age of two important ladies. And why would a householder lie about a burglar's visit?
It's all part of the job for Constable Nick, the man who inspired Heartbeat.
