Christmas, classical music and murder

Murder at an Irish Christmas (An Irish Village Mystery Book 6)

By: Carlene O’Connor

Rating: 5 of 5

This is the sixth book in this series. I enjoyed it so much, I have purchased the earlier books as well. It can easily be read stand-alone, as I had no problem in picking up the story line. I wanted the earlier books to get the back history and because I enjoyed the author’s writing so well.

Siobhán O’Sullivan is a Garda and she is engaged to a Detective Sergeant. She is taking time off at Christmas to spend with her siblings, as she and her older brother, James, have been responsible for raising them.

They are spending Christmas with Elise, James’ fiancee, and her family, which has thrown the O’Sullivan traditions to the wind.

The Christmas party revolves around a classical music concert put on by the patriarch of Elise’s family, Enda Elliot, a famous conductor. Sadly, Enda is found dead days before the concert. While it looks at first, like an accident, Siobhán quickly determines that foul play is at work.

The O’Sullivan’s had hoped for a fun and relaxing time but it turns into work for the intrepid Garda.

I loved the aside thoughts that run through her mind through the story. They made me laugh over and over again. I will enjoy reading the books that came before and those that come out in the future.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
