Publisher's Summary

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. A detective sergeant is dispatched from Dublin to assist with the case, and, as fate would have it, it's Macdara.

Things have been awkward between him and Siobhan since he left, but their partnership soon unearths that the victim was from Dublin, Ohio. As they dig for a motive among the gnarled roots of his family tree, long-buried secrets are unearthed.

Now, they'll have to stay two steps ahead of the killer...or they'll end up with more than one foot in the grave.

Great Listen!

Love the mystery, humor and insight into some of Irish culture. The storyline is interesting and flows easily with good twists. The reader captures the character’s voices wonderfully. I just wonder if the author means to only portray Americans as typically obnoxious, egotistical and/or snobs? Hopefully, there is room for diversity in character, even among Americans!

too many twists and turns to count!

fantastic murder mystery that keeps you guessing to the very end. I've listened to all three books and it's left me waiting for the next book. Miss O'Connor is a fine, well versed author.

Great plot

Loved the plot and characters,
Especially our heroine and her “sidekick”
Found accent of Americans rather annoying.
Hope the author has others to follow these three books.

More more more!

These stories and characters are so engaging and fun. I got caught giggling out loud, again, since it happened with both previous novels.
I've never traveled to Ireland, but the narrator has transported me along to a quaint village. I've recommended to friends and we are all ready for book 4!

America made up of immigrants from Ireland!

Good plot, kind of slow. Narration good. Did not see the need to bash Americans, it really did not add anything to the story and reflects badly on the author.

Entertaining

Murder in an Irish Village is an entertaining cozy mystery. Siobhan takes the lead in her first case and saves the day. The story is well developed and the characters are engaging. Caroline Lennon does a great job with the voices. I look forward to the next book.

Series getting better.

Although a couple years passed in the storyline since the second book with major changes in the main characters lives, the author handles that adroitly. And you would think that a couple actual years worth of honing her writing skills had passed as well. The first two books were good but seemed as though the series could either get better or sizzle out. Happily, this entry is the best yet and leaves me definitely wanting the series to continue. The mystery was satisfyingly complex. And the personal relationship between the main characters was interesting but not so intrusive that it turned a well done mystery into borderline romance novel.

This series gets better with each new book

This 3rd entry in the series does not disappoint. The story of how secrets and money can destroy a family for generations is wonderfully plotted.
The author also did a wonderful job dealing with the passage of time across the series.

Excellent Series

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!

the reader spoiled a potentially good story.

The reader's voice is not only harsh and an assault on the ears, she didn't even get basic inflection right. She was halting, dysfluent and discordant. It's a shame because I like this author. Regarding the author, the dialogue, especially of the Americans, was disingenuous and weak. I found it hard to care about anyone in this story. I didn't make it through to the end.

Better and better

This series gets better with each book. Characters and family are still the same as well as ongoing ‘romance’. Caroline Lennon is a superb Irish narrator with the appropriate humorous nuances. Hopefully there will be. Ore
