The characters in the book are well crafted with lots of quirks and personalities that help create three dimensional people. Megan Malone is an American who moved to Ireland after retiring as an Army Medic. Now she drives a limo in Dublin which positions her perfectly to meet new people and become intrigued in their situations.

When she finished up her military career, Megan Malone relocated to Dublin, Ireland. She works for Leprechaun Limos, driving tourists all over the city. It's about as far from her former military skills as she can get...but she loves it. Most days it's pretty routine....driving people here and there, giving a bit of touristy color and history to her clients. Until the day one of her passengers drops dead. A well-known restaurant and food critic, Elizabeth Darr, dies....after eating at a local ...more

Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy was an excellent beginning to a new cozy mystery series. Ms. Murphy is a "new to me" author who did not disappoint.

Megan Malone is an American expat living in Dublin and driving limos and town cars for Leprechaun Limo Service. She loves her job and has made several friends in Dublin since moving here. She's older than most of the current cozy mystery sleuths so I enjoyed "meeting" her. The story is well crafted with a quickly paced plot, twists, turns, red

Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy is a refreshing addition to the cozy mystery field and I enjoyed it very much overall. Several things set it apart from other cozy mysteries … The setting, for one. What’s not to like about an Irish setting? And then there’s the lead character, Megan Malone, whose very name alludes to the legendary Molly Malone of Dublin fame. Megan is an appealing and original character, with her Army medic background and

Dead in Dublin is a good start to a new cozy mystery series.

Well, I found a new cozy mystery series to love. Dead in Dublin may be a debut mystery, but Catie Murphy has written science fiction/fantasy as C.E. Murphy, so it's quite polished. It doesn't hurt that it's set in Dublin with actual buildings and monuments. Murphy's debut did send me down a rabbit hole as I looked at pictures of Dublin and listened to several versions of "Molly Malone".

Megan Malone's client dies at the feet of the statue of Molly Malone. Megan is an American transplant who

So much to love about this new series (and new-to-me author.) Love the Dublin setting, the unusual occupation for a cozy mystery heroine, Megan's larger than life friends and the subtle hints at something developing between Meg and a certain garda detective. And there's puppies!!!!

The mystery is a bit darker than the usual cozy fare but very cleverly developed with plenty of surprising twists. Love Megan's dogged determination to make sense out of the chaos. Her army medic background stands her

This is the first book in the Dublin Driver mystery series by Catie Murphy.

There was quite a lot of build-up in this story. I had a hard time grasping the entire scenario. It wasn’t until the halfway point I had my feet under me and was understanding the concept of this book. I am not certain what had me stymied.

I didn’t get the lush sense of Dublin like I thought I would and I understand that you can’t do that constantly. I probably missed all the Ireland-esque build-up when I was so

First, so you know, I got Dead in Dublin from Netgalley. Also, Catie's a friend and I love her books in general, and pounced on this one super fast because it sounded so good and did I say I love her books? She's an amazing writer.

I can't believe Dead in Dublin is done. I started it two days ago and finished it last night. I couldn't put it down. The premise is that Megan Malone, an ex-pat chauffeur, witnesses the dramatic death of one of her clients. The client is a famous food blogger, and she dies outside Megan's friend's restaurant, at the feet of the Molly Malone statue. Drawn into the investigation by both her restaurateur friend and the husband of her client, Megan uncovers more questions than answers about
