Publisher's Summary

Pub owner Maura Donovan hasn't seen her mother for over 20 years, so when she suddenly shows up in Maura's pub, Maura's not sure what to expect. Her mother is trying to find a life for herself back home and has taken up a position working with the new owners of the Crann Mor hotel just outside Skibbereen. That is until her new boss is found dead in the gardens, dumped down the hillside behind the hotel.

Now, trying to rekindle the relationship they've lost, Maura must investigate in order to clear her mother's name. It's not so easy, though, as longtime residents of County Cork, including the families of her employee Mick, and the family of the deceased hotel owner, have bottled deep, dark family secrets not meant to be uncorked. And someone will kill to keep them that way.

How far would you go to protect your family? Maura tests the age-old question in Many a Twist, the charming and atmospheric sixth County Cork mystery from New York Times best-selling author Sheila Connolly.

5 Stars

I thought the last book was a bit off, so I'm happy to say that this one was really good. The mystery was entertaining with good pacing and plot twists. There is character development for all of the characters with room for more advancement in the future. I look forward to listening to the next book in this series.

Slow, entertaining and wonderful

I have enjoyed each and every book in this series.
Finally, Maura is coming into her own, making tough choices and sticking to them. There’s not a lot of indecision in her, and it’s wonderful to see her grow.
SPOILER ALERT! Maura finds companionship!
As long as Sheila Connolly writes them and Amy Rubinstein reads them, I will be buying and listening.

About the Journey, Not the Destination

This low-key series is not about figuring out a mystery but enjoying Maura's journey from American visitor to valued member of a small Irish community, building friendships, accepting human flaws and deciding professional goals.

I can't say if the author's depiction of Ireland is authentic or realistic but I find this series entertaining and engrossing in a quiet, thoughtful way. Very mild language and sexual situations, with an emphasis on a relationships.

Everything there should be in a book!

I love this narrator. She sounds smart, educated, classy and experienced in narrating books. It’s a refreshing change from what I’ve been listening to lately! Of course the author is excellent and her writing skills are as good as her ability to transport the “reader” (listener) to another life. I will continue to listen to her stories and listen to her narrator.

Not my favorite in the series...

I would give this story 2 stars regarding the subplot of Maura meeting her mother, but 5 for the mystery so I settled in 4. Helen feels that she did ‘such a sorry thing’ to Maura’s life that she had to be successful herself. ???? So she’s a well-off businesswoman and wrote off Maura assuming that she turned into a “drug-addled hooker”. She never thought to find her or send money....And then she’s all smiles and roses .... it just didn’t flow or make logical sense. But the mystery was interesting as always, and Amy Rubinate continues to do a great job.

A bit obvious

I really enjoy these stories, but this one was pretty obvious on where the story was going. Also, the “big reveals,” were again expected and not really a surprise.
