Publisher's Summary

Murder in an Irish Village: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

In the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, Natalie's Bistro has always been warm and welcoming. Nowadays, 22-year-old Siobhan O'Sullivan runs the family bistro named for her mother, along with her five siblings, after the death of their parents in a car crash almost a year ago. It's been a rough year for the O'Sullivans, but it's about to get rougher. 

One morning, as they're opening the bistro, they discover a man seated at a table with a pair of hot pink barber scissors protruding from his chest. With the local garda suspecting the O'Sullivans, and their business in danger of being shunned. It's up to feisty redheaded Siobhan to solve the crime and save her beloved brood.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Music?

There was background music playing continuously during the reading. It was very irritating and I finally had to stop listening. The stores may have been very good but couldn’t stand listening long enough to find out.

background music

Background music is nearly constant and super distracting. I couldn't get past it...no go for me.

I just could not get into this story!

I have tried to listen to this twice. I just don't care about the characters. Perhaps I will try it again someday but I can't recommend it.

A bit boring.

Too many lame concussions just for the sake of length. Well portrayed Irish town life but a bit sticky.
entertaining at times, really boring and senseless at others.

Couldn’t get past the music playing

I was originally so happy to get this book that takes place in a small town in Ireland. Unfortunately they placed this lovely story with a background of music playing the entire time. At first it was just mildly distracting but soon grew to be too much of a distraction. BAD IDEA
It became very difficult to concentrate on either art form the written word or the music.

Should come with a warning ⚠️

My star rating is very deceiving because I really cant rate the story or the actual performance because the background music makes it impossible for me to listen to it. It’s so distracting I only made it through 2 chapters!

A dark humor story

I felt that this was a good book. I thought this was a delightful read. I enjoyed the humor and the suspense.

Very disappointing

After reading the great reviews this book got, I was very disappointed with the first two hours of it. To be honest, I haven't listened to all of it yet, but then I never may. The annoying Irish brogue makes the boring storyline even more tedious to listen to. I use audiobooks to keep me entertained when driving, and this book is a major fail in that department. I only gave two stars because... well not sure why, it could easily be a one star rating.
