Read from October 20 to 21, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

Pretty enjoyable, though not without issues. While I found both of the main mysteries interesting, and the setting really well-described, I felt like the romance parts, especially in the beginning, were really awkward and cheesy, and that sometimes answers to questions came a little too easily. It's also a mystery with kind of a Scooby-Doo type final confession--you know, "I did all this stuff, and I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids!" That sort of thing, which always kind of makes me nuts. So yeah. The structure and the characters are somewhat cliched, and there are things that I wish were somehow followed up on (hey, what about that serial killer?)--but there's still enough atmosphere to make it well worth a read. After all, Ireland! Bog people! I liked it enough that I'll probably read the second book in the series at some point, but I'm not going to rush right out and track it down in any sort of a hurry. I'll reread all my Tana French books instead.
