The small village of Kilbane is hosting a poker tournament at the local pub, and card sharp Eamon Foley, a tinker out of Dublin, is set to win the tournament. But when Foley is found at the end of a rope, it’s time for the garda to take matters into their own hands. Macdara Flannery would lay odds it’s a simple suicide, but Siobhán suspects foul play, as does Foley’s pregnant widow.

Jessica Fletcher takes up the cause of her good friend Barbara Babs Wirth after Babs's husband Hal suffers a fatal heart attack that Jessica has reason to believe was actually murder. Her suspicions are aroused by a sinister dating site Hal used while he and Babs were having marital issues - a site that might be complicit in somehow swindling him out of millions. Jessica's investigation reveals that Hal was far from the only victim, and when his former business partner is also killed, a deadly pattern emerges.

I haven’t even finished this book and probably won’t. The New narrator was horrific and made it hard to follow who was saying what. I’m not sure what happened to Jessica in this book, but in my opinion is MIA. The disrespectful things she says to people and her thoughts would never have occurred in previous books. I have enjoyed all the other books of this series but my money was wasted on this one. I pray Donald Bain gets a new narrator and remembers what book he’s writing on the next one.

It's official! Siobhan is now Garda O'Sullivan, and her five siblings couldn't be prouder. While her brother James runs Naomi's Bistro, Siobhan is doing her part to keep the village safe. Of course, Kilbane is pretty quiet compared to a place like Dublin, where Macdara Flannery has gone to be a detective sergeant. Then one night the local priest summons Siobhan to the church cemetery. There's a dead man in the graveyard - above ground. He's a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town searching for an Irish ancestor.

I look forward to each book in this series. Carlene O’Connor has kept the characters simple and fun. A light-hearted clean escape to Ireland. No worries if the kids are listening because there’s no bad language or embarrassing character engagements. Can’t wait to listen to the next one!
