This book is in the same vein as the first three of the series. Maura Donovan is a young woman who travels to Ireland after the death of her Grandmot..Show More »her. Maura has lived her entire life in Boston. When she arrives in Ireland she is shocked to learn she has inherited Sullivan's Pub.
This series of books describes her experiences in Ireland. She is an admirable young woman who is smart, but inexperienced in life. As I read I try to imagine how I would have fared in similar circumstances. I doubt I would have done as well as Maura has.
Though there is a mystery here, I believe the heart of the story is about Maura's experience and the other people who live in this small Irish village. That is a charming story.
The fours books in this series take place over a relatively short period on time. While I've enjoyed the series, I'm now ready to see Maura's story progress. Maybe the story can jump ahead 6 months or a year and some changes have taken place.
