Review: Murder in an Irish Village

Murder in an Irish Village

Murder in an Irish Village
Carlene O'Connor

Siobhán O'Sullivan hasn't had an easy time of late. Her parents were killed in a car accident by a local boy accused of driving under the influence. Now she's left with the prospect of looking after the family business Naomi's Bistro as well as, keeping an eye on an older brother who has a history of drinking too much and raising her four younger siblings. As if that weren't enough to deal with, a body is found dead in the bistro and Siobhán's older brother James is accused of the murder. Now she has extra work. She is determined to find the killer, even if it is one of her nearest friends or neighbors.

This is a terrific cozy mystery set in a small Irish village. It's full of fun characters and Siobhán, despite an uphill struggle is delightful. She rushes head long into her investigations, often without even thinking things through. This is not always good in a village where it's hard to keep secrets. But Siobhán is persistent and she is determined to keep her family together through thick and thin. If you are a fan of cozy mysteries set in idyllic locations then this is one for you. Curl up with a cup of tea and see if Siobhán has any luck looking for the killer.

Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
