Reader Reviews
A cozy with a sense of humour, August 20, 2003 Reviewer: Valerie Adolph from Pacific Northwest Do you remember M.C. Beaton's "Hamish" series? If you enjoyed that, you will enjoy Rhys Bowen's "Evans" series. Like Hamish, Evans is a policeman in an out-of-the way village (this one in Wales) who has a sharp eye, an even sharper mind and an intuitive understanding of human strengths and frailties. He is not without his own frailties, either - confusion about the opposite sex being one of them, and his misadventures in this area add colour to the story. The writer handles the setting deftly, managing to blend the ancient Druid culture, the recent history and current feelings in Wales with the immediacy of the New Age centre where much of the action takes place. This is an easy read. Visiting with Evans and Bronwen and Betsy is like a weekend in the country - you kick back and relax. The main plot and sub-plots fit together neatly and the rivalry between the two chapels (which has nothing to do with anything except getting the feeling of place spot on) brings back fond memories of a stay in Wales. There isn't a huge amount of dramatic tension here - you wouldn't expect it in a cozy - and I enjoyed the one dramatic climax when our hero, at great personal risk, manages to rescue, not the free world, not life as we know it, not even the maiden in distress, but a rabbit. Lovely!
