"A headless stranger is found in the woods of Wild Thyme, a small town in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. All signs point to a man-killing bear, and Officer Henry Farrell would just as soon leave this hunt to the Game Commission. But doubts arise when he discovers the victim was a retired investigator. What drew the investigator to sleepy Wild Thyme? Before Henry can find answers, his own nephew disappears into the hills. Then an old flame dies under suspicious circumstances, leaving Henry as the prime suspect. Torn between protecting his family and clearing his name, Henry fights to protect the most he's ever had to lose"--… (mer)

I really liked Bouman's first novel, [b: Dry Bones in the Valley|22253773|Dry Bones in the Valley (Henry Farrell, #1)|Tom Bouman|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1422215732l/22253773._SY75_.jpg|25993839]. I liked his second less. And this one, not at all. I was already shaking my head as I slogged through the early pages (and pages...) of Farrell's singularly cheerless wedding and minute descriptions of every guest and their family connections. A body has been found, which has been fed on by a bear. And of course, soon afterward, the bear attacks Farrell in the woods, only to be fended off by the instant and convenient appearance of Farrell's father. More meandering episodes of gas station robberies, Farrell brooding about the obnoxious woman he had an affair with, and a snotty rich couple who complain about the "hooligans" who swim in a nearby creek. Does anyone really use the word "hooligans" any more? I was done. Dreary. ( )

A deputy finds himself compelled to investigate a death that at first seems due to a bear attack but in the end was a different sort of violence. Many characters. Sometimes I was confused by that. ( )

The Bramble and the Rose is a short, but beautifully written mystery set in rural northern Pennsylvania. Henry Farrell, the only police officer in a small town is called to a local property when a headless body is found. While first thought to be a bear attack, Farrell recognizes that the severed head was brutally removed post-mortem. This discovery leads him through the eclectic collection of residents in his rural community, questioning the motives of new and long-time residents alike.

At the same time, Farrell is getting married, starting a new life with the daughter of one of the leading businessmen of the area. His marriage is complicated, at least for him, by all the intertwining threads running through the community and increasingly, as he learns, tied to the murder of the headless outsider.

Family drama, community secrets, and outside interests lead Farrell headlong into a mystery in which he finds himself overly involved. An intricately woven story, deftly told in a somewhat dark narrative, The Bramble and the Rose doesn’t fail to live up to Bouman’s reputation for amazingly written literary mysteries. ( )

Not realizing this was the third book in a series, I gave it a go anyway. I haven't decided whether I like the main character of Henry Farrell enough yet to read the other books in the series. Farrell is a small town policeman - when a decapitated stranger is found dead in the PA back woods, he starts looking into the case. When his nephew inadvertently goes missing, he knows that things are about to come to a head.

But here's the rub, you don't quite know what the backstory is on one of the characters involved, only a piece of it, and the entire thing just feels like maybe I'm missing something. ( )

This is the first I have read in the Henry Farrell series. I found it to be disjointed and had to force myself to finish it and it did not make me want to go back and read the prior novels in the series. ( )
