In Two Minds is the second instalment in the Teify Valley Coroner series featuring Harry Probert-Lloyd and John Davies. After his success in solving a murder in the previous book, Harry is now the acting coroner and John continues to work as his assistant.

A faceless body is found on a beach and Harry is called up to lead the inquest. Everyone would like a quick resolution. After all, inquests cost money. But Harry doesn’t work like that and is determined to find out exactly what happened and who

Really really good. This is without doubt one of my novels of the year so far. It is so well-balanced. Not only do we get a cracking good mystery to solve, but we also get outstandingly interesting characters, and a wealth of period detail. Harry Probert-Lloyd, future heir of the Glanteifi estate is going blind, but has decided to stand as the new coroner, much against everyone's advice. Because of his sight problem, he takes on John Davies, a farm-boy turned clerk, with enough intelligence to ...more

Wales in the 1800s is a challenging place for Harry Probert - Lloyd, as unwilling heir to his elderly father and battling with diminishing sight. Having returned home from London where he worked as a lawyer, he is once again intent on finding out more about a death which defies easy explanation as acting coroner of Tefi Valley. In this, the second Teifi Valley Coroner novel, the odds seem even more stacked against Harry, as he insists on investigating the death of a mysterious man despite

In the second of the Teifi Valley Coroner series - but can easily be read as a standalone so worry not if you haven't read None So Blind yet! - we are reunited with John and Harry as they combine their crime solving skills to get to the bottom of yet more intriguing deaths, and these deaths are a little more gruesome this time round so pose quite a challenge for them to get to the bottom of.

Harry is going blind, so relies on John to be his eyes and they work so well as a team that Harry wonders

I love Wales and I was delighted when I was invited to take part in the Blog Tour for this interesting and well written book.
Thank you to Emily at Dome Press for my gifted copy of the book in return for a fair and honest review.
'In Two Minds' picks up from Book one in the series 'None so Blind' but can be read as a standalone novel.

Harry has returned home to Wales due to his failing sight and his father is pushing for him to take over the family seat of Glentefi but Harry is determined to

Another thoroughly enjoyable read from Alis Hawkins. Sometimes, having read a book, I pause to consider what did (or didn’t) make it work for me as a reader. At times, that’s a difficult answer to pin down as there are so many possibilities.
Crime fiction is not a genre I read widely – never has been – but Alis Hawkins’ historical crime series holds a special place in my heart, and that, I believe, is down to the reading trait of connections.
Regardless of the time period in which a book is set,

The second of the Teifi Valley Coroner series set in Wales in the 1850s. This is just as good as the first book and kept me guessing just like the first one did. I love the two main characters, Harry and John.....they work so well together although coming from different classes. I can't wait for the next in the series but I bet it will be a long wait....hurry up Alis and write the next one - I desperately want to know what happens in Harry and Johns lives. I am so, so glad I found this ...more

Going blind, Henry Probert-Lloyd is. So he's come home -- and the post of Coroner has dropped into his lap, as it were. He can do this -- if he has help, to be his eyes. And that's what John Davies can do, albeit a bit reluctantly. And thus In Two Minds is off, to uncover the identity of a man found murdered on the Tresaith beach and then of course to find the reason for that murder.

In between, readers are treated to the whys and wherefores of the lives of Probert-Lloyd and Davies; the rich man

In two minds is the follow up to None so blind, though you could read them as standalones.

This book I found to be atmospheric, it is set in Wales in the 1800s. It had great descriptions and really set everything for me.

Alis has created some strong characters especially in Harry Probert-Llyod and John Davies. Both kept my interest throughout.

I found this book to be intriguing, when I wasn’t reading, I was thinking about it and just what may come our way next and exactly how things would

Excellent sequel to None So Blind, with a deepening of Harry and John's relationship alongside the central mystery, weaving the stories of character and setting together to form a compelling narrative.

A real page turner

This is an excellent second outing for Harry and John. The story moves along at pace with descriptive narrative that transports the reader easily into the lives of the characters. The plot unfolded seamlessly and kept me guessing to the end

Alis Hawkins grew up on a dairy farm in Cardiganshire. Her inner introvert thought it would be a good idea to become a shepherd and, frankly, if she had, she might have been published sooner. As it was, three years reading English at Corpus Christi College, Oxford revealed an extrovert streak and a social conscience which saw her train as a Speech and Language Therapist. She has spent the ...more
