I recently discovered the Ruth Galloway series, written by Elly Griffiths, on a Facebook group.
This series, to me, is like eating potato chips; you can't have just one!
Or more like the saying, "Cats are like potato chips; you can't have just one"?
Anyhow, one aspect of this series is that Ruth loves her cats!
Ruth is an archaeologist, living in North Norfolk, U.K.
She teaches at the nearby university, and finds herself involved with the local police when a skeleton is discovered and they call upon her unique skills at identifying buried bones.
There are other fun things, like druids, saltmarshes, spectral hounds and boogey men, and some good old romps in the sack!
She pines for her cat, Flint, whenever she's away from home for more than a few days.
Cats are harmed in the first two books, and that in itself would put me off a series (and a writer) in a heartbeat!
However, the author has made it very clear that she deeply regrets writing about such cruel things, and I've encountered no more of this type of nastiness in any of the other books.
The author is a true cat-lover.
I've halfway through book #13!
I'm told there is a TV series based on these books, but I haven't seen it...yet.
