I couldn't wait for the next installment of Mike's adventures in North yorkshire and like all good things it was well worth the wait.Being a retired rural bobby myself and with family residing in the area that I have good knowledge of ,I was not to be disappointed.Mike has an easy style about his writing which makes this such a pleasurable read.You can easily identify with the situations that he finds himself in and the descriptions of the countryside and characters are second to none.Never mind five stars...I would give it ten out of ten.My only question would be,when is the next installment out?Well done,Mike,keep the stories coming!.

I read Mike's first book "Now then lad" which I thought was fantastic. Now, having just finished "You're coming with me lad" I must say i am hooked. The book starts with drama and ends with romance. I found the stories both compeling and interesting. Each chapter is told with passion and wonderful detail of "what it's like been a rural beat bobby". The setting for the book is also based in a beautiful part of the country-North Yorkshire. I am so pleased I read the 1st,delighted with the 2nd and now can't wait for the 3rd. Brilliant

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first volume of Mike Pannett's recollections I was looking forward to the second installment. I've certainly not been disappointed as 'You're Coming with me Lad' ticks all the same boxes and more as the second excursion around North Yorkshire serves to deepen the characters Mike comes into contact with as well as adding a new set of fascinating ones. The friendship with his old friend Walter and his burgeoning relationship with his new girlfriend are dealt with gently and poignantly and serve to provide the books with a strong feeling of continuity and emotional bond. As with 'Now then Lad' the book is beautifully written and evokes wonderfully the locale and people. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a good read and I'm looking forward to the third installment.

Another great book from Mike Pannett, these are so lovely and true to life I can't wait to get started on the next one, this was even better than the first if at all possible.

Looking forward to the next one, in fact I am going to start it straight away, :)

This long-awaited sequel ticks all the right boxes. Whilst the tender thread of Mike and Ann's developing romance runs right through the narrative, PC Pannett is not one to shy away from the hard-edged realities of rural policing, managing to strike the perfect balance between action and emotion.
The author's obvious love for his North Yorkshire environment adds an extra dimension to what is already a bloody good read: roll on book 3!

I've all the books from Mike Pannett as it's a subject close to my heart. There are some great tales in there of his life as a rural police officer. I'm sure not every day in his career was as exciting as what's in the book but some of the stories are great. Whether you are in the police or just like this sort of book you'll not be disappointed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even better than his first book, Now Then Lad. Could relate to the areas well as I also live in the part of North Yorkshire where he worked. Very good read, could not put it down. in fact I read it in a day whilst chilling out on holiday. Hope he does another one
