Evan Blessed (Constable Evans Series #9) by Rhys Bowen

In his ninth mystery, Constable Evan Evans scours a Welsh mountainside to find a missing woman—and then copes with the subsequent disappearance of his beloved Bronwen...

Mt. Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa to the locals, is crawling with tourists in the summer months. So Constable Evans isn’t unduly alarmed when a young female hiker goes missing for a few hours. She might have taken a wrong turn or even stormed off to hide after a tiff with her boyfriend.

The routine search turns more ominous, though, when the village police find an underground bunker—complete with handcuffs and chains. Now, as he copes with wedding plans and a visit from his disapproving mother, Evans has a serious investigation on his plate, searching for a link between the still-missing girl and the eerie, empty chamber.

And when his own fiancée disappears, the case goes from ominous to terrifying…

Amazing book i loved it so much

Eventful & Fun Mystery Evan Blessed by Rhys Bowen is the 9th book in a series, however, I had no problem following the story or delighting in the characters. This mystery series is set in Wales. Recently promoted D.C. Evans lives in a quaint town filled with quirky characters. In Evan Blessed, Evan Evans’ and his betrothed’s—Bronwyn--preparations for the upcoming nuptials and the arrival of their parents are interrupted by a report of a missing hiker. Clues abound, the plot thickens, and Evans must put together pieces of a puzzle before a murder is committed. The audiobook is masterfully narrated by John Lee.

Detective Constable Evan Evans knows first hand what it means to move someone as he has lugged the junk (don¿t tell her that) of his fiancée Bronwen up Mount Snowdon¿s mountainside to their cottage. On one of his treks he meets Paul Upfield, who says he is searching for his seventeen year old girlfriend Shannon Parkinson who he raced ahead of hiking down the mountainside she never caught up and he never found her when he turned back to look. --- Instead of finding the missing teen, the K-9 dogs uncover a concealed underground bunker including handcuffs hanging down from a ceiling beam. Soon Evan begins receiving sheet music containing enigmatic clues. The police struggle with too many people and no viable suspect. While Evan continues his investigation, a strange twist occurs when Bronwen disappears with the music writer sending notes that she is now a prisoner. Whereas before he was duty intense to rescue the girl now he is obsessed to save his beloved and the teen. --- The long running Evan Evans¿ police procedural is refreshed with this fine cat and mouse tale as this time the case turns personal. The story line grips the audience from the beginning when a frantic Paul explains to Evan that his girlfriend is lost on Snowdon and never takes time off as the hero begins to believe he is the ultimate target in a cat and mouse encounter. Rhys Bowen shows why she is one of the best mystery writers today with this excellent tale. --- Harriet Klausner
