Publisher's Summary

Between training the new town garda and trying to set a wedding date with her fiancé, Macdara Flannery, Siobhán is feeling a bit overwhelmed. She’s looking forward to visiting the new bookshop and curling up with an exciting novel - only to discover the shelves contain nothing but Literature with a capital L. The owner not only refuses to stock romances, mysteries, and science fiction, but won’t even let customers enter his store unless they can quote James Joyce or Sean Hennessey. 

Despite the owner deliberately limiting his clientele, he’s hosting a reading and autographing event featuring up-and-coming Irish writers who will be taking up residency in Kilbane for a month. Among them is indie author Deirdre Walsh, who spends more time complaining about the unfairness of the publishing industry and megastar best sellers instead of her own creative works, causing a heated debate among the writers. She seems to have a particular distaste for the novels of Nessa Lamb. 

Then Deirdre’s body is found the next day in the back of the store - with pages torn from Nessa’s books stuffed in her mouth. Now, Siobhán must uncover which of Kilbane’s literary guests took Deirdre’s criticisms so personally, they’d engage in foul play....

More adventures with familiar characters

I am old friends with the characters as I have “read” the series. It is like visiting old friends and truly enjoyed the story (although not surprising)and narration. My one issue is the recording itself. -a few repeated segments and jumps. That needed to be proofed.

Good story but bad production

There were several spots were passages repeated... starting at the beginning! Really poor quality production... better editor and some QA needed.

Always satisfying!

Carlene O’Connor’s books are so charming and her Siobhan O’Sullivan is so richly drawn!
Great Listen!

Bit All Over the Shop

Wasn’t as good as other stories in series as was very confusing with characters and trying to put red herrings in so many places. But good filler.
