Publisher's Summary

Two weeks before the big day, Welsh Constable Evans is ready to be done planning for his wedding. Just as he's unloading the last boxes into the new home he and his bride, Bronwen, have chosen, he runs into a teenager whose girlfriend has gone missing on Mt. Snowdon. Despite his apprehensions about getting involved in a new case, Evans cannot resist helping the worried hiker. A search yields no trace of the girl but does turn up a well-stocked bunker, complete with chains and handcuffs. Are the two related? And if so, where is the girl being held?

When a series of clues is uncovered, Evans and the police begin to see that they are dealing with a clever but twisted mind. Then a second person vanishes and this time Evans knows the victim: Bronwen. He realizes the culprit's vendetta might be a personal one and that the actual target might have been him all along.

Award winner Rhys Bowen, whose most recent Constable Evans novel, Evan's Gate, was a finalist for the Edgar Award for best mystery novel of the year, delivers another charming and suspenseful cozy mystery set in beautiful Wales and starring fan favorite village constable Evan Evans.

    Story
    "Evan Blessed just plods along."

    I have really enjoyed the "Royal Spyness" series by Rhys Bowen, so I hoped "Evan Blessed" would be as good, but it isn't. The story is predictable and plodding, and the characters are ordinary, as is the narration. Not bad, but far from good. Choose something else.

    Story
    "The Story is better than the narrator"
    What did you like best about Evan Blessed? What did you like least?

    The story is good, just like the other Rhy Bowen books.However, the narrator's interpretation of the characters does not do them justice


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Ms. Bowen's style of writing


    Would you listen to another book narrated by John Lee?

    If he were to narrate another


    Do you think Evan Blessed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is up to Ms. Bowen if there needs to be a follow-up book.

    "3.5/4.0 Stars - Fun and Entertaining"

    I have really come to enjoy the writings of Rhys Bowen. Her stories are quite enjoyable and are an easy read/listen. I have to admit I did not "who donit" the whole way through. There were some mild twists and turn with the story. I would recommend this book!

    I thought the narration was OK. I have heard better, and was a bit disappointed. But it was not bad either, I have also heard MUCH worst narrations before.

    Different reader perhaps. Not sure.


    Has Evan Blessed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    just this series


    How could the performance have been better?

    maybe different reader


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I really like the author. This book does not do her justice.
