5 Score: 5 (From 10 Ratings)


The Detective in the Dooryard is composed of stories about the people, places, and things of Maine. There are sad stories, big events, and even the mundane, all told from the perspective of a seasoned police officer and in the wry voice of a lifelong Mainer. Many of the stories will leave you chuckling, some will invariably bring tears to your eyes, but all will leave you with a profound sense of hope and positivity.

    After enjoying TC’s many humorous and insightful blurbs, and posts to the Bangor Police Department Facebook page I was excited to take a read through The Detective in The Dooryard. I was unexpectedly elated to find that this book gives way to emotions akin to that of Chicken Soup for the Soul with it’s thoughtful anecdotes, humorous dialogues, and the retelling of life lessons learned. This book is no less than charming and leaves your heart feeling a little bit warmer, your mind feeling a little more thoughtful, and your face with a little bit of a smile.
