Scandal In Skibbereen Second In The County Cork Mystery Series

I finished Shelia Connolly's second County Cork Mystery, Scandal in Skibbereen last night. I loved it, It was a very good story. The mysteries were as winding as I pictured the roads in County Cork. I simply feel at home in this series and as though I belong in Leep.
I was so thankful to happen upon this book at my local library and have ordered the third book An Early Wake  so I can catch up for book #4 next February!
Earlier this year for my birthday I had asked for a DNA test so that I could find out my own heritage. My mother was adopted and it was life long dream come true to have this test available, though my mother died 5 years ago I was able to confirm that I am Irish. That she was Irish, that my children are part Irish and this was so important to me as my mother always felt drawn to anything Irish, books, music it is as if her soul knew. If you would like to know more about my personal story please click here.

I found Sheila Connolly's series not long after I discovered my Irish heritage and I identified so completely with her many character Maura and her own quest to discover her Irish roots. Buried in a Bog   is a fantastic story and one I recommend whether you are Irish or not!
I have also pre ordered A Turn For The Bad  out in 127 more days, as I long to know Maura and the people of her "tight-knit" community!
If you are looking for a Cozy Irish village to stop by and visit I think you will feel right at home in Sheila Connolly's County Cork Mystery series!
I look forward to sharing my reviews on the next two with you very soon!
