    One thought on “Murder in an Irish Village”

    1. A man has been murdered and with all the evidence pointing to her brother, it's up to Siobhán to solve the crime. Well this is really very good. It's a cozy mystery set in a small Irish town. To be honest, it feels like it was written 50 years ago and that's the best thing about it. It's a lot like those great BBC crime shows they broadcast on Saturday nights. Not the greatest book ever written but charming and well worth the effort.

    2. The setting for the story is Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland. Our protagonist is Siobhan O’Sullivan. Siobhan was about to leave Kilbane to attend university in Dublin when her parents were killed in an auto accident. She is the oldest of six children so she stayed to take care of her siblings. The next oldest is James, but he is an alcoholic. They all work in the family bistro called Naomi’s Bistro. One morning on opening the café they discover a murdered man sitting at a table. James is arre [...]

    4. I thank NetGalley and the publisher for sending me this free ebook in return for an honest review. I enjoyed reading this book and give it 3.5 stars out of five. Siobhan O'Sullivan runs the family bistro, serving breakfast and lunch with the help of five siblings. Then her brother James is arrested for murder. This book is set in a small town in County Cork, Ireland. Siobhan sets out to find the real murderer. The author is Irish American, but has done a good job incorporating Irish speech patte [...]

    5. 3.5 starsThis was a fun, cozy mystery. I loved the Irish slang that is peppered throughout, and don't know enough to know how accurate it is. It certainly helped that I listened to the story. I didn't find myself drawn to the characters as much as I was hoping, but it was a fun story. The heroine seemed like quite the town busybody. I'm surprised that people would still give her the time of day. The language was another problem for me. I never did figure out if they were swearing, or just using [...]

    6. Natalie's Bistro is the most popular place to eat in this small Irish village. It is very important to the six O'Sullivan's because it is their home as well as the business which supports them. Siobhan O'Sullivan makes wonderful brown bread and she has become the guardian of the four younger children. She is the manager of the Bistro even though her brother James is older. He is trying to over come an alcohol addiction. He helps when he can but he is not always able.All of life changed several m [...]

    7. When I was looking for a new audiobook for my commute, I chose this book in the hopes of hearing a little lilting Irish brogue. On that note, I was not at all disappointed. The narrator was absolutely fantastic. I could have listened to her read an Irish phone book and been satisfied.As for the book itself, it was okay. Not amazing by any means but decent.On the good side, it really seems to capture the small town Irish mentality (as far as I know it, which admittedly is mostly from watching Moo [...]

    8. Unfortunately this book just wasn’t for me. It didn’t feel like a cozy despite the attempt at a charming Irish village. And the pacing was just too slow. The dialogue was awkward and overall it just felt as if the author was trying too hard.

    9. This is the first book in a new series and I found it very enjoyable. I enjoyed the characters and setting of the story. Siobhan and her brother, James have been taking care of their younger siblings since their parents death by a drunk driver. The family has a bistro that makes just enough money for the family to get by. One day the brother of the person accused of killing Siobhan's parents in the drunk driving accident comes back to town saying his brother didn't do it. This man ends up dead i [...]

    10. The real rating of this book is between a 2.5 to 2.75. Throughout this book I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a true murder mystery or a cozy murder mystery. I think it's the first one since they had young people in danger and most cozy mysteries I've read haven't done that, but arguments for either could be done.As a murder mystery the story wasn't as well developed as I would have liked but the characters were developed enough to not be boring. In the beginning, I was interested in seei [...]

Carlene O'Connor's charming new cozy Murder in an Irish Village is as delectable as a slice of the authentic Irish brown bread Siobhan is known for.From the authentic dialect to the lush description of village life, Carlene O’Connor brings the village of Kilbane to life.

    15. This was an enjoyable mystery. For me, it started out a little slow setting up the backstory for the main characters but once the murder occurred the paced picked up nicely. The mystery had plenty of twists and turns with a surprise (at least for me) as to the identity of the killer. I like that the whole O'Sullivan family was involved throughout and we got to know each of them as the story unfolded. Siobhan is a likable character. She is independent and complex as she struggles with her new rol [...]

    16. I was so very excited to get an advanced reading copy of Murder in an Irish Village by Charlene O'Connor. I sat down to read the first few chapters and those first two turned into the last one before I knew it. There is something so wonderful about a book that can literally make the world disappear. Murder in an Irish Village did just that for me. A story of family, responsibility, romance and mystery. This is a cozy you are going to want to order, tuck up on the couch and read with a big mug of [...]

It was a pleasant trip to Ireland, a wonderful country that I love so much but I have not had the luck to visit.

The author was very good at recreating the atmosphere of those magical places, even more realistic thanks to the use of Irish slang (there is a glossary that explains their meaning)Siobha [...]

    24. When I decided to try this book with the rather plain cover and the title that makes it sound a bit vintage, I expected your run-of-the mill, average mystery. I was amazed when I discovered a true treasure inside. The main character, Siobhán O'Sullivan, is delightful.
