I was surprised that the introduction to Dicey Deere’s series pertained to sexual fetishism, unbefitting categorization as ‘a cozy’. Picturesque titles, quaint covers cause them to be labelled thusly but I’m not complaining about adult books bringing out in the open, serious subjects. What caused difficulty were grating whistling habits of the author, which regrettably she continues in this book and her technique of having every Tom, Dick, and Harry narrate a chapter disconnected me from the pro ...more

Second title in the Torrey Tunet mystery series, set in Ireland. I did not read the first book, and so had no idea of who Torry Tunet was. Consequently, she remained a two-dimensional character, always in the background. Other characters were more fleshed out, although not necessarily likable. Plot threads were introduced throughout the book, some rather late in the telling. However, the book remained suspenseful and the ending was satisfying.

I liked character "McIntyre" who has worldly knowledge and small village charm. I liked the way that the story is told with short jumpy thoughts that scatter from one angle of thought/observation to the other. Towards the end of this book I started to see spelling errors which was annoying including the Heroines' own name! I will move onto the next book though because I do enjoy a moden small Irish village murder mystery. Interestingly, I looked at who else has this book on their list on goodrea ...more

I enjoy the way that Deere manages to go from person to person without losing me. Also there is no attempt to speak in a local dialect so I can read this easily. I do suggest that you read this book in order because there are a number of mentions of people from the previous book and it makes more sense that way. Read it in one gulp and was pleased by how twisty the ending was and how most ends were tied up. There is a clear impression that there is a book to follow and as I like the heroine (alm ...more

I loved this book. I actually hated putting it down. Now I'm on the third book of the series and loving it. I love books based in Ireland and Denmark. Especially mysteries because in America we dont have as many mysteries as Ireland and England and Egypt.

The book got very dark and twisted but thankfully not super graphic. There was a big build up as to what the main character stole and that was a bit of a let down. Easy summer read or one for a plane ride.

'Convoluted' best describes this novel for me. There is a lot going on -- too much -- and yet, not everything is addressed at the end, so it wasn't especially satisfying.

I was wavering between two and three stars, so I rounded up.

Another great Torrey Tunet mystery. Had me guessing up until the end. And I love all of the characters. I will continue to read this series. It is easy to read and if you have to stop in the middle it is easy to pick up and start again. Can't wait to read the next.

Another great the twists at the end of her books...can't wait to find another one. Unfortunately there are not too many of her Irish stories.

This was a complicated murder mystery where you didn't know what really happened until the very end. I did not like the characters very much either. I won't be reading the others in the series.
