I enjoyed this book. I read about half of it over the course of one day. I like the super short chapters and the way the author writes. She accomplishes a lot in a couple of paragraphs. I will likely read more from her series. I also enjoyed the witty Irish dialogue.

i like the characters, i love the setting - having lived in ireland, i'm amazed that a non-irish woman was able to nail the atmosphere. but the end of the book ... why that fifth star's not ticked. i just could not believe some of the twists to the plot. having said that, the author did a fantastic job of throwing out a lot of false leads.

Easy to read, fun cozy set in a quaint Irish village with all the requisite quaint Irish characters. Protagonist Torrey, an American interpreter living in Ireland makes the story. She knows what the local gardia should be doing, even if they don't, or shall we say - when they don't?

Enjoyable little book. Nothing extraordinary, but I enjoyed it enough to seek out another of the author's books.

Kind of a disappointment but I just can't figure out why for sure. Maybe it was that I figured out the mysteries early in the book. Maybe it was because of the choppy dialogue (characters were constantly interrupting themselves, if that makes sense). Maybe it was because of the unnecessarily detailed descriptions of what everyone was wearing. Probably won't read another book by this author.

Good, but not great. As I've said about this author, it's the characters... It's hard to feel much more than mild interest in what they are doing.

Reasonably entertaining mystery taking place in contemporary County Wicklow in Ireland. Good characters and interesting twist at the end.
