I really enjoyed the author's use of Irish vernacular and phrasing in the conversations between the characters. While this is definitely a novel, there is some accurate historical background in terms of The Troubles in Ireland. The story is entertaining and held my attention; I would recommend it to others.

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

Hmmm. Love the Irish voice. The two mail characters were fun, if a little too perfect. WAAAYY too much Irish history. It was not enough to make me totally understand the era/history (I'd need to have read the history section like a textbook, perhaps with a map and taking notes) but too much to keep me from wanting to skim. Payoff in the end fell kind of flat. But I did enjoy it enough to read the others in the series if I run into them.

Greeley knows SO much about Irish history that it's hard to follow at times. Fortunately, his characters are so much fun, it's worth the concentration to keep up. I love Galway, so the setting was a major plus. I haven't read anything by him in so long, I had forgotten about the overlapping stories -- maybe I need to go back and re-read some of his other works!

Series should be read in order. All about Chicago, Catholicism, Irish immigrants, families, etc. Not excellent, but I read them all, because someone gave them all to me. Each book has an "inside" story about Irish history contained within, my least favorite part of each book, so that I very often skipped those parts...bad Beth.

I was disappointed in this book. It just never got off the ground and there was no edge to the mystery. The greatest mystery of the book was whether the lead characters would finally have an all-out, no holds barred shag. That they did was no surprise, but neither was much else in the book. I won't be looking to read any other Nuala Anne epics.

There is some Irish history hidden in this book somewhere, mostly about "The Troubles". Vague references, back & forth, round & round-hard to keep track who is saying what. Andrew M. Greeley obsessed with sex and foul language. I don't know why he became a man of the cloth. I would not recommend this book.

I really do enjoy the Nuala Anne mysteries. They're quite different than the typical fare out there, and when you add in all the Irish history and stories (as well as the ribald humour), Andrew M. Greeley's books always make for a simply fabulous read

These Nuala Anne McGrail novels are about an Irish family and their trials and tribulations. Greeley is another great writer and. These novels are all enjoyable. You can't wait for the next one to come out.

I think this was my favorite book in the series because you got a glimpse of what was going on inside Nuala's head.

I read some bad book but I could not make myself finish this one. The story jumped around so much I could not follow it.

The couple go back to Ireland for a benefit concert and to learn who killed O'Higgins during the troubles.

This required me to be alone to read and I am never alone. The constant interruptions did not allow me to read. It was very full of historical information.
