Murder in an Irish Bookshop

A Cozy Irish Murder Mystery




“Queen of the cozy police procedural (Publishers Weekly),” USA Today bestselling author Carlene O'Connor's seventh Irish Village Mystery brings a whodunit that tests even Garda Siobhán O'Sullivan, as the grand opening of a new bookstore in County Cork, Ireland’s village of Kilbane ends up closing the chapter on an author’s life…

Between training the new town garda and trying to set a wedding date with her fiancé, Macdara Flannery, Siobhán is feeling a bit overwhelmed. But an author event at the new bookstore featuring Irish writers taking up residency in Kilbane offers a welcome distraction.

One author, Deirdre Walsh, spends more time complaining about the unfairness of the publishing industry and megastar bestselling authors like Nessa Lamb instead of her own body of work. After the evening ends in a battle of words, Deirdre’s body is found the next day in the back of the store—with pages torn from Nessa’s books stuffed in her mouth. Now, Siobhán must uncover which of Kilbane’s literary guests took Deirdre’s criticisms so personally they engaged in foul play…
