Evan's Gate: A Constable Evans Mystery | Rhys Bowen
1 post | 3 read
From the author of In Farleigh Field... When Constable Evan Evans discovers a beautiful shepherd's cottage in the mountains of Llanfair, Wales, he and his fiance are thrilled. It's only months before their wedding and they are eager to begin their new life together. The cottage is in need of renovation so Evan wastes no time before he begins making much-needed repairs. But it turns out that Evan's discovery extends far beyond the beauties of a mountain-top view and a cozy dream-house when Evan finds the skeleton of a child buried in the front yard. His professional inclinations soon get the best of him and he cannot rest until he discovers the identity of the child. The skeleton is decades old, but the discovery eerily coincides with the case of a present-day missing girl. Although discouraged by his fellow detectives, Evan dives into the mystery of both missing children. He soon realizes that if he can solve the decades-old death, he just might find a crucial insight into the whereabouts of the child missing in the present day. Rhys Bowen's newest spell-binding addition to her critically acclaimed cozy series will win the hearts of fans and newcomers alike. Evan's Gate is a 2005 Edgar Award Nominee for Best Novel.

This is my 2nd Constable Evans - the 1st was early in the series, and this is a later one.

They take place in the cozy, unique setting of Wales, a place I know little about, but find fascinating. The mystery in this was two missing girls - one present day & one years ago. Evans is closely tied to the first disappearance as he played with the little girl right before she went missing.

Despite the coziness, I find these more sad than feel good.
