Murder in an Irish Cottage I loved returning to Ireland with Siobhan, Dara, and the O Sullivan Six This one was full of the legends and folklore of Ireland and plenty of twists and turns This is one of the better cozy mystery series out there It feels like so muchIt always makes me so happy to be back in this world This is the fifth book in the Irish Village Mystery series and I can say that I have enjoyed each one of them Ms O Connor has done a wonderful job of creating the O Sullivan siblings, led by Siobhan, who as readers will recall is now Garda O Sullivan This is a family of siblings that are well crafted, diverse and characters that readers can come to care about Siobhan and Dara s romance is progressing, albeit slowly, but for me that is okay I don t particularly want the romance in a cozy to This is the fifth book in the Irish Village Mystery series and I can say that I have enjoyed each one of them Ms O Connor has done a wonderful job of creating the O Sullivan siblings, led by Siobhan, who as readers will recall is now Garda O Sullivan This is a family of siblings that are well crafted, diverse and characters that readers can come to care about Siobhan and Dara s romance is progressing, albeit slowly, but for me that is okay I don t particularly want the romance in a cozy to overshadow the mystery In this installment, Dara is called by his cousin in a panic and when he and Siobhan arrive at her home they discover his aunt has been murdered While the murder occurs outside their jurisdiction, fans of this series know that that will not stop Siobhan.I enjoyed the mystery It is woven together with Irish folklore and legends about fairies and their ways It was also interesting because as the story unfolded, Dara s aunt Ellen becomes less of a sympathetic victim However, by that point, I was hooked and wanted to unravel the riddles and follow the clues to uncover the identity of the victim O Connor does a nice job of distracting readers with irrelevant clues and tidbits and succeeded in misdirecting this reader That said, I always love it when I can t figure out the killer s identity, or at least if I do not until the end.This is a fun series for me It has a cast of extremely likable characters in the O Sullivan siblings and it is set in a quaint Irish village The mysteries are engaging and make me think in a good way I will definitely be back forof this series.I read a digital ARC of this book which was provided to me by the publisher through Netgalley This book is scheduled for release at the end of February In A Remote

The story was well written and I really liked the main character, Siobh n She s smart, easy to relate to, and I enjoyed getting to know her and her siblings along with Dara and his family The mystery was entertaining with all the fairy lore and full of twists, turns and red herrings galore that I found I couldn t put it down I highly recommend this series to all my friends who love cozies set in

little people themselves, fairy rings, fairy trees, and all the lore, fables, tales, and ballyhoo that goes with those unique legends in the Emerald Isle Siobhan O Sullivan is now Garda O Sullivan, engaged to fellow Garda Macdara Flannery Dara Siobhan shi vawn has been part of the O Sullivan Six managing Naomi s Bistro since the death of their parents Looking forward to some private time with Dara, however, is interrupted when he informs her plans have changed as he got an urgent call from his cousin Jane in Ballysiogdun regarding his aunt Jane, although blind, discovered her mother deceased, obviously not a natural death.Having no shortages of people who actively disliked his aunt Ellen, it appears the local garda wants to zero in on Jane being the most obvious as she won t produce evidence of her whereabouts In this tiny but quaint, quintessential Irish village, the superstitions run rampant It s not the first time this cottage has been the location of mysterious deaths all attributed to it s being in a fairy path between two fairy rings So much shared folklore here, fascinating history dating centuries, and attributable supernatural events The author has a beautiful writing style invoking unusual descriptions with an easy swing into the clue that naturally leads to the next revelation There is enough here to delight most cozy readers a great mystery, a touch of romance, family relationships, intelligent dialogue The well plotted storyline slips into a conclusion that neatly satisfies the loose threads While I suspected the perp and was correct , there wasto the ending and, in the meantime, provided a delightful literary romp.I received this digital ebook download from the publisher through NetGalley and greatly appreciated the opportunity to read and review A series I look forward to giving me the Irish experience albeit vicariously Looking forward to Book 6 Totally recommended.See my full review at I read an advance copy of Irish Cottage Get this

the books I love the O Sullivans I m waiting anxiously for the next installment Just hoping there are no leprechauns in that one Those guys really scare the bejeesuz out of me This is the 5th in one of my favorite series Here, Siobhan s fiance Macdara has received a frantic phone call from his cousin Jane, because she has found her mother dead.Jane and her mother lived in a cottage that has been

though Siobhan and Macdara are members of the local Garda police , they do not have jurisdiction in this case, but it is a family member, even though they weren t close, so of course they do their own investigating.A couple of things puzzled me, such as discoveries that should have been made sooner than they were, but it was a good mystery I caught some of the clues, but I didn t guess the killer.I wouldn t recommend starting the series with this book This series is probably best read in order, starting with Murder in an Irish Village Series Irish Village Mystery 5Publication Date 2 25

engaged to fellow garda Macdara Flannery and the O Sullivan Six, as they are known in their village of Kilbane, are finally settling and coming into their own This book is well written, well paced and the mystery will keep you guessing right until the last.Siobahn is on her summer leave and is looking forward to spending time with her siblings when her fianc e arrives at her bistro, Naomi s, and asks her to accompany him to Ballysiogdun He received a frantic call from his cousin, Jane, who wouldn t tell him what was wrong she only said he had to get there When they arrive, it is to discover Macdara s aunt dead in her cottage and Jane, who is blind, standing stoically in the front Macdara and Siobhan quickly determine that it is murder Since they probably won t be able to officially work the case, they quickly take pictures of the scene and the inside of the cottage.It seems that almost everyone in the village should be a suspect because neither Macdara s aunt Ellen nor her daughter Jane is liked at all You can t find anyone who has a good word to say about them and several had a true dislike for them Where can they begin when the case has been assigned to a sergeant from Cork and he doesn t want their involvement In a village that is very insular, where most are holding secrets, and all believe in the Good People fairies it is almost impossible to get anyone to tell what they know Working around the official garda investigation and managing to ferret out the information they need to solve the case is almost impossible Siobhan is like a dog with a bone and just won t let it go She s determined to find the real murderer and not let an innocent person be blamed just because they are an easy solution.This was a great mystery with infidelity, fairies, greed, and malice aplenty I m not sure there was a good person in that entire village The villain will surprise you and you ll be on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading You ll love your visit to lush, green, beautiful Ireland and all of their lore It is a fun read and a delight to watch Macdara and Siobhan progress in their relationship I hope you will enjoy the book as much as I did I
