This is the first book in a brand new series by Carlene O’Connor who already has the Irish Village series that I’ve been wanting to read. It’s very apparent that she’s spent a lot of time in Ireland. I read it in her bio, but her writing is more than just research, you can tell she was there and is telling what she knows about. I really enjoyed this first book and look forward to the next. This book is an exclusive available only through Barnes and Noble until April 30, 2020.
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but it definitely won’t be the last, since I’ve been wanting to read her other Irish series. I’ve never been to Ireland, but her descriptions are done so well that I was actually able to picture the cottage and all the different places that Tara went. She definitely had her work cut out for her with her uncle missing and walking in on a dead body. When she found another body later, Tara was determined to clear her uncle’s name.
There were a lot of great suspects, clues and suspense. I had no idea who the killer was, and the showdown was great, even though it was a bit tense. I like Tara’s possible love interest and will be interested in reading the next book and seeing her uncle shop become a reality.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC paperback copy of this book provided by the publisher, and my opinions are my own.
