I just read Evans Above the first book in the Constable Evans series by Rhys Bowen. This book has been in my TBR pile forever, no really I mean it, at least two years. I don’t know why I never seemed to get around to it but now I am so glad that I did. I loved the setting, a small Scottish Village and the ancillary characters are done quite well. The murder plot was well crafted and I did not solve it until close to the end. There was quite a bit of action, both related to the original crime and in addition to it. In addition, there is quite an interesting love triangle brewing in the village between the Constable and two very different ladies. This was a fun cozy read and I am sure the series is going to prove to be great. Anyone who likes British cozies with small village settings will probably enjoy this.
I would like to check this one out too. I am a fan of lit featuring small village life in Scotland, England or Ireland!
The cozies with these settings are my favorite. I love MC Beaton, Simon Brett and I just started reading these Constable Evans and the Mrs. Malory series.
