Carlene O'Connor's Murder at an Irish Wedding. It was a thrill to be able to read and review this book before it comes out February 28th. I had absolutely fallen in love with her first book Murder in an Irish Village and was equally impressed with her second book. Murder at an Irish Wedding had me not wanting to put it down. This was such a great mystery and I tucked in with my tea and read each word with that beautiful Irish lilt in my head. This was a great escape cozy, a feel good cozy and a mystery that had me guessing until the end. I truly had not figured out the murderer until the big reveal and was taken a back at that reveal. This was brilliant and such a treat to read.
The O’Sullivan clan of County Cork, Ireland, are thrilled to be catering the matrimonial affairs of a celebrity couple—until a cunning killer turns an Irish wedding into an Irish wake . . .Any wedding is a big deal in the small village of Kilbane—even more so when the bride is a famous fashion model. It’s also good for business. Not only has customer traffic picked up at Naomi’s Bistro, Siobhán O’Sullivan and her five siblings have a full plate catering for the three-day affair. And Siobhán’s own beau, local garda Macdara Flannery, gladly steps in as best man after the groom’s first choice makes a drunken arse out of himself.Even if he hadn’t been disinvited to the wedding, the original best man wouldn’t have been able to show. He’s been found murdered in the woods, casting a pall over the nuptials. And when a second member of the wedding party is poisoned by a champagne flute engraved with Macdara’s name, the garda goes from being best man to prime suspect.With a killer at large and a string of robberies plaguing Kilbane, Siobhán feels more than a little protective of her village. She vows to clear Macdara’s name, but the suspect list is as long as the guest list. Like the bride walking down the aisle, Siobhán needs to watch her step. For as she gets closer to unveiling the truth, the murderer is planning a very chilly reception for her . . .
