First of all, I love this series. I have read about 5 books counting this one. The setting and characters are interesting and I always pick up a new Welsh phrase or two. Several parts made me laugh out loud, I was truly saddened by the death of the first victim and concerned about several other characters' welfare. I was certain that I had solved the mystery early on but Ms. Bowen threw a few more twists into the plot than I had counted on. The ending was pretty predictable but satisfying nonetheless. I look forward to finding more "Evan" mysteries and learning more about the quirky inhabitants of Llanfair. ( )

This is the second in the series and I really enjoyed it; however, I would recommend reading the hardback or paperback, not the large print. It was filled with typographical errors. It took away from the reading. ( )

I enjoy that this author can continue to write about the same characters without repeating the stories. She kept my interest until the end of the book and I didn't "solve" the mystery myself. ( )
