    This new series is a deadly craic!

    Megan Malone has retired from the US military and moved from Texas to Dublin, Ireland. Working as a driver for the Leprechaun Limo Service she gets to meet lots of interesting people and even some Americans from back home. When one of her regular customers dies after dinner at a friend’s restaurant, Meg wants to help the American husband and her local friends clear their name and get back to business. As Meg follows the crumbs of the trail, she discovers some unsavory things about not only the husband of the deceased, but the business partner of her friend. Can Meg help her friends or will she be shipped back to the US in a box?

This is a great start to a new series. A strong female character following her own dreams and living life in her adopted home of Dublin. I look forward to the next entry in this series and spending more time in Dublin with Meg and seeing what the future holds for her and the dogs.

    Debut of A Dublin Driver Mysteries

    Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy is the beginning of A Dublin Driver Mystery series. Megan Malone retired from the military after twenty years and relocated to Dublin, Ireland where she works as a driver for Leprechaun Limo Service. Megan is shocked when Elizabeth “Liz” Darr collapses at the base of the Molly Malone statue and passes away. Liz Darr was a renowned restaurant critic and food blogger who had been traveling for the last year around Europe with her husband Simon. Megan had been ferrying them around the last three months whenever they were in town. When food poisoning is suspected, Megan’s friend, Fionnuala Canan comes under suspicion as the chef from Canan’s where Liz had her last meal. Both Fionnuala and her boss, Orla Keegan ask (beg) Megan to investigate. Detective Paul Bourke admires Megan’s tenacity, but he would rather she keep her nose out of the investigation and stick to driving. Megan has no intention of giving up especially after the victim’s parents also ask her to get them answers. Megan has her hands full between her driving duties, sleuthing and taking care of a Jack Russell terrier along with her two pups that were discovered in the kitchen of Canan’s. When another death occurs at Canan’s, Megan is sure they are connected. Can Megan steer the investigation towards the killer? Dead in Dublin takes readers to Dublin, Ireland with her vivid descriptions of this charming city. Megan lives just outside Dublin in an apartment in Rathmines where she must make sure her landlord and boss, Orla does not discover the mama dog and her two puppies (which Megan keeps saying she has no intention of keeping). I appreciated the pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book for the various characters names (Niamh is pronounced Neev). It was very helpful. Megan is a Houston native who wanted a fresh start after retiring from a twenty year career in the military. She enjoys ferrying people around the city, though, she is not fond of her boss, Orla Keegan. I like that Megan is intelligent as well as friendly with a unique profession for a cozy mystery. Detective Paul Bourke is in charge of the case, and he likes that Megan is determined (though he does wish she will quit meddling). There is definite chemistry between them. There are a variety of eccentric characters from Niamh O’Sullivan who is an actress and activist to Megan’s Uncle Rabbie with his varied connections. The mystery was multifaceted and suited the Irish setting. We follow Megan as she questions various people searching for answers. I believe readers will enjoy this challenging whodunit. I was surprised by the foul language present in Dead in Dublin since it is not normal for it to be present in cozy mysteries. Dead in Dublin is a stimulating new cozy mystery with darling dogs, ineffable Irish charm, a dashing detective, a rash of rumors, and one determined driver.

    I liked it.

    I received a free copy of DEAD IN DUBLIN (Book 1 of the Dublin Driver Mysteries) by Catie Murphy in exchange for an honest review. Megan Malone works as a driver for the Leprechaun Limo Service in Dublin, Ireland. Since she’s from the United States, she often bonds with her American clients. After driving American food critic Elizabeth Darr and her husband, Simon, around the city for awhile, Meg has formed a friendly bond with the couple. When Elizabeth collapses shortly after eating at a restaurant owned by a friend of Meg’s and when food poisoning is thought to have been the cause of death, both of Meg’s friends, Simon Darr and the restaurant owner, cajole Meg into investigating. Meg does so against the wishes of her boss, who wants to distance her business from the ghastly death. Because additional people begin to either disappear or die under mysterious circumstances, Meg knows the perpetrator has to be stopped before the devastating crimes can continue. I liked this book. I thought it was a pretty good start to a new series. I recommend this book to fans of cozy mysteries involving ex-patriots, Ireland, limousines, mysterious uncles, and cranky bosses. #DeadinDublin #NetGalley

    Super!

    cosy-mystery, Ireland, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, law-enforcement, murder After twenty years as a US army medic, Megan relocated to the family homeland in Dublin and made a new life there. First came a job as a driver with a car hire service complete with a very cranky boss and a decent apartment at a good price. The writer makes good use of the differences and adjustments from American English to local English, and that's a very good thing. She has made numerous friends over the past three years and some of them are very important to this case. All of the characters are well done and engaging. She has been the driver for a noted restaurant critic and her husband for a time now, which is why she is on hand when the critic falls dead on the pavement in front of a friend's restaurant and meets an interesting law officer. Let the sleuthing begin! The publisher's blurb is really pretty good and spoilers are just wrong! I loved it and want more! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
