    Description

    Evan Evans is a young police constable who has traded in the violence of city life for idyllic Llanfair, a Welsh village tucked far away from trouble. Nestled among the Snowdonia mountain range, Llanfair looks to Constable Evans like a town forgotten by time, but he quickly learns that even the bucolic countryside has its share of eccentric - and deadly - characters. Evans' new neighbors include two competitive ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evan-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post (whose favorite hobby is to read the mail before he delivers it).

    Before Evans has time to sort through the complicated relationships and rivalries of his new home, he's called to the scene of a crime as brutal and fearsome as any he encountered in the big city. Two hikers have been murdered on the trails of the local mountain, and Evans must hunt down a vicious killer - who may or may not be linked to the mysterious destruction of Mrs. Powell-Jones' prize-winning tomatoes.

    Evans Above is the first novel in Rhys Bowen's popular Constable Evans Mystery Series.

    Interesting....

    A good British cozy/village crime novel. The reader was stylistically very good but a bit plodding. Amazingly the performance improved quite noticeably by just upping the speed to 105%. I do recommend trying it at the higher speed.

    Has it all

    A glimpse of small town Welsh life, great characters you know you'll be able to enjoy for many books in the series, a cozy mystery with a bit of excitement, and from Roger Clark, a gorgeous Welsh voice that just about sings the story. Well done! I hope the rest of the series becomes available!

    Another great series!

    Rhys Bowen's versatility is amazing and she doesn't strike a wrong note in this series set in Wales. The narrator is a bit slow but I finally just put it to 1.25 speed and it was fine. Very enjoyable.

    Fun easy listen

    Murder light
    Romantic comedy-no nudity or sex.
    Location-small town in Wales.
    Major plot with several smaller side plots and mysteries. Clever twists. Formulaic but fun.

    No horror or terror. Not offensive.

    And enjoyable easy lesson.

    I’ve got a crush on Evan Evans!

    Good fun, likable main character and quirky supporting characters. Narrator’s deep voice was beautiful and I so enjoyed listening I didn’t want it to end.

    Much preferred

    I’ve listened to or read a number of other Rhys Bowen books and this , by far, the most sensible and interesting. I enjoyed the others for what they were but this one, perhaps because it is a central male character set in modern day, doesn’t seem so frivolous.

    I did find the constant references to his weight and food a bit silly but I suppose it goes to his inability to make a decision about the women in his life. His fatal flaw is his white knight way of dealing with them. If he can’t rescue them, he doesn’t know what to do with them.

    Anyway, I found it intriguing and entertaining.

    Enjoyable Cozy Mystery

    A great cozy mystery with a Welsh mountain village setting and cast of characters. I picked up a few clues along the way, but their relevance was less obvious than I'd thought. Narrator is wonderful.

    This doesn't have the light touch of the author's Royal Spyness mysteries but it's no less enjoyable. I'm delighted to have found a new (to me) series to enjoy.

    Evans ok

    Wasn't as enthralled as I hoped to be. Enjoyable but not compelling. Don't think I'll follow Constable Evans' further exploits.

    Good Heavens, I Like the Evans!

    In a quiet little Welsh Town, where Evan Evans has retreated, in order to escape the violence of city life, Constable Evans (Evans the Law), soon discovers that Llanfair, isn't the sleepy little village that he expected . . . despite the quirky and for the most part, friendly folks (including Evans the Milk, Evans the Post and Evans the Meat), a killer is on the loose . . . and its up to Constable Evans to sniff him out . . . a great cozy mystery, rich with the details of a small town in Wales and its citizens . . . as Evans the Law dodges the advances of the local barmaid, volunteers to chaperone the teen dance and find the culprit trudging through Mrs. Powell-Jones' garden and stealing her pies, he doggedly pursues a killer on the dangerous snow topped mountain . . . the narration is great, flowing and lilting . . . and I can't wait to listen to Book Two of the series . . .

    Years since I first read this novel; still as good as the first time

    Many years ago I used to belong to the Mystery Guild, an all mystery book club. It was fun and many of the series that I grew to love were first introduced to me though Mystery Guild book club editions. This is an excellent audio version of the first in the Welsh Constable Evan Evans series. My second "reading" of this charming Welsh mystery.

    Some humor is included plus a decent mystery.

    Recommended to readers of mysteries by Carola Dunn (Daisy Dalrymple series) and M. C. Beaton (Agatha Raisin series and Hamish MacBeth series), both series introduced to me first by the old Mystery Guild.

    These are rather more cozy series than police series despite police characters.

    Ein Dorf in den Bergen

    Von Rhys Bowen kannte ich bisher nur die "Royal Spyness"-Reihe, war aber neugierig auf die Welt eines walisischen Dorfpolizisten.
    Es hat sich gelohnt, der nächste Teil wartet schon darauf, gehört zu werden. 😉
    Ich fand es hilfreich, das eBook parallel dazu offen zu haben, so daß ich bei manchen sprachlichen Eigenheiten der verschiedenen Personen nachlesen konnre, was gemeint war.
    Das einzige Ärgernis 😡 ist die geänderte 🤬 Technik 🤬, die bei jedem Wechsel des Mediums das Hörbuch zurück springen lässt - die Kindle-App fragt wenigstens, ob man das möchte.
