"Irish Cream" by Andrew M. Greeley
(from the back cover)
Countless readers have delighted in Father Andrew Greeley's tales of Nuala Anne McGrail, a fey, Irish-speaking woman blessed with the gift of second sight, and her hapless husband and accomplice, Dermot Michael Coyne. Now they return to untangle a knotty mystery involving a ruthlessly ambitious clan of South Side Irish--the cream of Chicago's Irish-American community. Damian "Day" O'Sullivan is a troubled young man who blames himself for a t
Irish Cream is book number eight in Andrew M. Greeley's Nuala Anne series, a series about an Irish-American author and his Irish wife who is fey and can sense all sorts of interesting things. In this book, they're trying to unravel a mystery in some diaries of a priest in Donegal, Ireland shortly after the Great Famine. They have also hired a nice young man, Damian, to take care of their dogs. He reveals that he is on probation for having run over and killed a man while he was drunk several year ...more

I hope to see the secondary characters again!
I've truly liked the books of this series. There are some mystical elements that are a bit strange, but the characters are interesting and have mostly good morals. All in all, these are good mysteries. They are written well also although I was surprised at the level of eroticism considering the series is by a priest.
In each book,the couple solves at least one older often ancient mystery and a current-time mystery that are slightly connected as well as work through a crisis in their relationship
This is another Nuala Anne novel - part mystery and part romance. I enjoyed this book very much but it was not quite as magnetic as others in the series have been (hence the lower rating).

In Irish Cream Nuala and her hubby are working to protect a friend of theirs from the trappings of his looney family - all while reading the diary of an Irish there a connection between the two? And can one mystery help solve the other? You will have to read to find out.....
Another tale about Nuala Anne McGrail, Irish Mystic. Another look at Ireland in the 19th century as she investigates the journal of an Irish priest. Greeley holds my interest in each book of this series and I learn about Irish culture. I need to find the next installment.

Jack O'Sullivan thought his kids were the Cream of the Crop - Irish Cream, except for the youngest Damian who was the scapegoat.
The story was okay. Find it hard to believe with all the touchy feely and sex that it was written by a priest.
Andrew M. Greeley and his "Irish" series are always good reads. Fast and fluff. Perfect for a lazy day!
I like almost all of Andrew Greeley's books -- and have read almost all of them.

I actually have finished this book! Once again. I love Andrew Greeley!
mediocre. Plot not worth going into
