Thank you Kensington Books and NetGalley for this free ARC in return for my honest review.
Very disappointed with this book. How can a super plot get lost in a bunch of characters I really could not care about and have one of the most unbelievable and convoluted endings imagined. The plot was good, a golfer dies with no apparent suspects and with no witnesses. From there we get into some interesting golf and family issues, but our main character, Meghan, who drives a limousine, just turns me off

I liked this one better than the first one and I think that is because I was able to read this one and not listen to it [there were issues with the narrator]; the only issue was that, even with the help at the front, I could not for the LIFE OF ME, remember how to pronounce all those Irish names.

Poor Megan [who really is shaping up to be a great MC. She works hard, sleuths when she can and has excellent friends], she just cannot catch a break. Not 4 months have gone by since the last murder [of

Death on the Green by Catie Murphy was another enticing cozy mystery set in Ireland which got my attention from the first chapter.

I like Megan Malone and her independent attitude and caring nature of her clients. A well crafted plot, multiple suspects, so many twists and turns and descriptive writing that allowed me to feel as I was with Megan every step of the way. This was a complex mystery that kept me guessing not only about who was behind the murders but why they had occurred. I was comple

This is the second book in the Dublin Driver series featuring Megan Malone, an American who has exercised her dual citizenship and moved to Ireland after serving twenty years in the military as a medic. She is employed by a high end limousine service and is one of the top drivers because she can communicate easily with both Irish and American clients. Her attraction to the job is, as she explains it, because she is nosy and loves to hear all the gossip and information she gets as a result of dri ...more

I enjoyed the first book in this series; set in the exotic country of Ireland and filled with rain, wind, and lots of golf, Death on the Green did not disappoint. The main character of Megan is very likable, and readers will find her to be a great representation of what it would be like to be an American working and living in a foreign country. Other characters, especially Megan's gruff boss, Orla, are better defined in this book. Orla is beginning to grow on me. Even Detective Paul Bourke is so ...more

I’m absolutely loving this series of cozy mysteries featuring Megan Malone, a Texan former army driver who’s retired to a quiet life driving limousines in Dublin and somehow keeps managing to stumble over dead bodies. In this one, it’s a professional golfer found floating face-down in a water hazard that kicks off the action, and since the victim was both the best friend and greatest rival of Megan’s current client and she was the first to get to the body, she can hardly help but be in the thick ...more

Awww, I loved this! I complained that the last book ended abruptly but it picked up happily here and I feel like I could read a dozen instalments of these low-key mysteries about low-key charming people. It's also wonderfully queer!

This may be a murder mystery series, but honestly, it feels SO immersively cozy and uplifting to read, because - even moreso in this second book of the series - it's chock-full of people helping each other in ways small and large in a fabulously expanding network of kindness. Even when there's the potential for romantic entanglements/confusion (because my personal guess is that in the longterm, the bi heroine - who is currently casually dating another woman from her gym - will eventually end up ...more

When I read the first book in this series, I immediately jumped on amazon and preordered the next! THAT was how much I enjoyed it. Every time I powered up my kindle in the last few days, this was glaring at me to read it, so over two nights before bed I dove in and definitely didn't regret it. Megan is a super character, so supportive and out making friends the entire time she solves mysteries. She really gets involves and really cares, even if she's just met someone, and that makes the reader c ...more

When Army veteran, Megan Malone, decides to move to Ireland she takes a job as a limo driver for Leprechaun Limousine Service and finds that her job involves more than driving important clients - in this case it's solving a murder.

I loved the idea of a cozy mystery set in Ireland. The descriptions are so lush, the reader feels as if they're right there, solving crimes with Megan. Megan is an independent and curious person who is drawn into a mystery when the client she was driving is charged wit

This second entry in the Dublin Driver mystery is a fun read. Former Army medic Megan Malone has relocated to Dublin after her retirement from the military. She is a limo driver for Leprechaun Limousine Service, owned by a crusty but fair female boss, who also happens to be Megan's landlady.

Megan is a great character, 40ish, professional and competent and also empathetic. She has made friends in Ireland and generally gets along with most folks. Her big character flaw, common to cozy he

This was a fun read. The author did a great job of describing the location, the accent, the interactions, slang and characters. I loved listening to the banter between Megan, the main character and her friends. Megan, a retired Army Veteran has relocated to Ireland and is working as a driver for a limo service in Dublin.

I appreciated the dynamic and exciting start to this cozy, murder mystery. The intrigue drew me in. And yet. Somehow by the end of the book I was really struggling with the storyline. I think perhaps for me, just too many things were not what they seemed. It felt like there were U-turns as opposed to a deeper understanding from digging deeper into the characters.

Its not that the main character Meghan ( a limo driver) is unlikeable but somehow I found her role incredible. The professional, a resp

This story started off on a good note and went flat after a couple of chapters, I wasn’t entertained with the romantic or should I say the sexual aspect parts of this book, Meagan’s sexual preferences were not something I’m accustomed to. I find too much drama was at play here, it took quite a while getting to the bottom of this mystery. This would make an entertaining read for those who cotton to this time of sexual flavor but on a mystery level, I believed it needed a bit more intrigue.

I really love this series. Who wouldn't want to be able to move to Ireland? Not sure I'd want Megan's job however. Some of the characters are quite interesting (in a good way), others wouldn't want to have to interact with, but do need those in a mystery or it wouldn't be much of one.

Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for my eARC in exchange for an honest review. I hope there are many more of these.

Death on the Green is the second book in the Dublin Driver series by Catie Murphy and is currently scheduled for release on September 29 2020. I have read (and enjoyed) the first book in the series, which gives a good character and situational understanding for readers. However, I think newcomers to the series would be able to catch on pretty quickly.

Thank you @netgalley for the ARC of this cozy mystery. All opinions are my own.

I absolutely loved the first book in this series! The setting, cast, cute puppies and mystery were all fantastic so I’ve been extra anxious to read this sequel. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a miss for me this round.

The Dublin setting was still great. I love catching a few tidbits about the area and culture throughout the story. I also looked up how to pronounce several character names .... Aibhilín Ní Gamlachóir m

I enjoyed this, the second book in the series, just as much as I enjoyed the debut mystery. Megan Malone had no intention of ever getting involved in another Garda investigation but here she is, one month later and she's in the thick of it. This time out she is driving for a pro golfer and that puts her in the group of people following him across the golf course, at his request. All goes well at the outset and one of the other golfers, who is also a childhood friend of her client, has decided to ...more

A Texan in the land of leprechauns, or at least a Texan who has become limo driver for Leprechaun Limousine Service in Ireland. Another first for me, both the book and the main characters vocation. This story wastes no time in teeing up the murder and the mystery sending Megan Malone into a water hazard to try and help a drowned Lou MacDonald. There is no putting around with this story, it was intriguing and humourous while at the same time I never felt stuck in the sand because I hadn't read th ...more

Megan Malone has done it again! In this second book of the Dublin Driver series, American expat, Megan Malone, has stumbled across another body.

What I love most about this book, and series, is the characters and setting. Ireland is my favorite place in the world and I love being able to picture the places Megan drives her clients to. I also like the fact that Megan’s background doesn’t make her come across as helpless. I don’t get nervous, like I do when reading most cozy mysteries, that she’s
