JOANNE'S MYSTERY PICKS This cozy mystery series by Canadian author Charlotte MacLeod features Inspector Madoc Rhys of the RCMP and his wife Janet. For the most part, the stories take place in New Brunswick. I look at them as being a cross between a good Agatha Christie novel, a bit of the Murdoch Mysteries (the TV series) and a touch of the Beverly Hillbillies. The books are peopled with funny, colorful, and eccentric characters. The plots are intricate and well-crafted and the mystery of “who dunnit” is not easily solved. It’s a delightful series, providing many laughs as I paged through each book. How unfortunate that there are only five books to this series. I would gladly have read an additional five if they existed. Joanne gives The Madoc and Janet Rhys Mysteries 4 daggers out of 5!
