  • Loved it!

    suspense, mental-health-issues, grieving, relocating, law-enforcement, family-dynamics, friendship, detective, Ireland, professor, expats, small-town***** A cop who left Long Island, NY to be with her fiancé who is a professor of Irish history and hopes to join up with the Gardai, her teenage daughter who is still a mess following her father's suicide by the sea, and now a battered corpse on the beach. Was this man murdered, victim of an accident, or a suicide? It's a dangerous area and accidents or suicides are less than uncommon. There is a lot more to the current and history of the area, which also has a history of smuggling. Slow and steady investigation complete with a steady addition of deaths and suspects, plot twists, and red herrings. It is also a love letter to the beauty of the West Irish coast with exquisite imagery. A fine read! I requested and received a temporary e-book from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Maggie’s Still Finding Mysteries

    After quitting her job, Maggie D’Arcy is spending her summer in Ireland with her daughter, her boyfriend, Conor, and his son, as they get serious about Maggie and her daughter moving to Ireland. They’ve rented a cottage on a West Cork peninsula, but their vacation hits a snag when the body of a young man who disappeared months ago washes ashore. Even though Maggie isn’t a cop, she can’t help but ask questions. Where has he been for the last few months? Who would want him dead? Can Maggie find the answers even without her badge? Since I’ve enjoyed the first two books in this series, I was curious to see where the series was going to go in this book. Once again, the writing was atmospheric and made me feel like I was there with Maggie. The characters are well drawn, although I did have a little trouble keeping all the relationships of the villagers straight. Still, I loved getting to spend time with the core cast again. Unfortunately, the pacing of the book was off, lagging at times in the middle and leaving us with a weak climax, although the climax did answer all our questions. The book is written in present tense, and it took my brain a bit to adjust to that. Most of the story is told from Maggie’s first-person point of view, but we do get some chapters from other characters’ points of view to help flesh things out. Fans of the series will be glad they picked up this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
