Publisher's Summary

The charming village of Llanfair, the setting for Rhys Bowen's beloved Constable Evans mysteries, sits amid lush, rolling Welsh meadows populated with quaint cottages and is considered by many of its colorful locals to be a kind of paradise. Unfortunately, there aren't many opportunities for young people in Llanfair, so when an exciting and glamorous American woman breezes into town talking of dormant psychic powers and important social research, barmaid Betsy Edwards is quick to take her up on an offer of employment at the recently opened Sacred Grove New Age center not far away. Of course the locals, including the village constable, Evan Evans, think Betsy has gone around the bend, not to mention the nutty American who dragged her off to be "tested". Betsy, though, is dazzled at the possibility of exploring her own sixth sense. And she's only a little surprised when her new powers are put to a real-life test; when the center's flamboyant director goes missing, clues to his fate mysteriously appear in Betsy's dreams.

It's a tantalizing mystery for lonely Betsy, who can't help doing a little investigating on her own. But Constable Evans has been involved with Sacred Grove before - looking for a missing American college student who was lured there by Druid worship. As Betsy does her own sleuthing on the spot, Evan comes to realize that there is nothing straightforward about this case and that Betsy has no idea at all of the terrible danger she is in.

Excellent

Predictably good. The story line here is a bit unusual, but it is a very good book. The narrator is so very good.

What can you do?

What can you do when you feel an increasing hostility to a character that has apparently been chosen as a significant other to our hero? Wait and see, I guess.

review of evans to betsy

Overall, I enjoyed this production very much. I
loved the story: great combination of humor, suspense, mystery & local color. Interesting comments on Druidism. The narrator was good, especially with the Welsh accent, but overall his delivery lacked dramatic flair.

Enjoyable

Love Evans stories. Light Mystery Good narrator. His “voices” for characters can make you think of the character instantly. Easy listening while cleaning

Evan to the rescue

Evan needs to be careful when it comes to Betsy. I do not like her trying to pry herself into Evans life knowing Bronwen is his girl. Evan doesn't need to rescue every damsel in distress. I did like Betsy's storyline and in general I do like her character.

Rhys What Happened to You

I use to be able to rely on anything Rhys Bowen wrote. Her characters were fun quirky and loveable! Her stories were interesting, mysterious and unpredictable. Now she seems to have embraced the WOKE theology so hard that her characters are mean and or stupid if they are right-leaning and endearing and thoughtful if they are left-leaning. Please, can't you just go back to quirky characters and interesting storylines rather than moralizing and character assassination?

Evan Evans... my kind of hero

I absolutely love Bowen's Evan Evans series. I can imagine being in Wales climbing the rugged hills in the mist waiting for the sun to burst through the clouds. The characters would be wonderful to meet in the Red Dragon.
