Evanly Bodies

The Constable Evans series by Rhys Bowen features Evan Evans, a Welsh policeman who lives in the fictional town of Llanfair and solves a remarkable number of murders for such a small village. In Evanly Bodies, Evans, now married to Bronwen and settled in a shepherd's cottage, joins a newly-formed task force that takes on a series of similar murders, while Bronwen investigates the disappearance of a teenaged Pakistani girl.

Like M. C. Beaton, Rhys Bowen is going to remain on my B-list, but I will still read her pleasant mysteries because I like the characters and the milieu. In addition to the Constable Evans series, she has a Molly Murphy series featuring an Irish immigrant in the early 20th-century. Both are good for a quiet afternoon's entertainment.
