Great Irish Garda cozy mystery

Murder in an Irish Bookshop

By: Carlene O’Connor

Rating: 5 of 5

Siobhan O’Sullivan is a Garda in a small Irish town, Kilbane. She is also one of the O’Sullivan Six who own the local bistro. Her fiance is Detective Sargent Macdara Flannery and together they investigate many of the crimes which seem to haunt this town.

A new and mysterious bookshop opens in town and everyone, including Siobhan want to visit right away. Things are quite that easy which makes for fun and games. The bookshop is hosting a get-together for up-and-coming authors. When one of the authors ends up quite dead, Siobhan shifts gears and, instead of buying books, looks for a murderer.

This is a very funny series with good plots and mysteries. The dialog, especially with the thoughts that Siobhan has to herself, are great. I laughed through quite a lot of this story and look forward to the next one.

In the meantime, I’ve gone back to the beginning and have read books one and two and will catch up by the time the next new entry is read.

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