Murder at an Irish Wedding (An Irish Village Mystery Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Any wedding is a big deal in the County Cork village of Kilbane, but with a local lad marrying a famous fashion model at Kilbane Castle, there’s no talk of anything but the upcoming nuptials. Siobhán O’Sullivan and her five siblings have their plates full catering the three-day affair from their bistro. But the celebratory mood suddenly turns sober when the best man is found murdered in the woods.
For Siobhán, the tragic turn is more than grist for the gossip mill. Her beau, Macdara Flannery, is the prime suspect—and she intends to clear his name. Now, 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.

That is not true in this, the second book of the series. Siobhan is not even a guest at the wedding at the castle until she's invited (for no good reason). When the best man, a stranger, is found dead, she not only decides (why?) to solve the mystery, but starts telling her boyfriend and his boss in the Garda how to do their jobs. I found this really, really irritating. Not only does she have no reason to get involved, but she assumes that she knows more about investigating than the professionals and proceeds to tell them what to do and all her theories about the case. She has become a bossy, nosy, obnoxious person with a highly overinflated opinion of her own importance and ability to investigate crimes. Her siblings, the rest of the O'Sullivan Six, are barely there by comparison, although Cieran manages to lug in a Book of Poisons to dismay the guests in the bistro. (I love Cieran, but someone seriously needs to sit that kid down and talk to him about when to keep his mouth shut. On the other hand, his sister isn't providing much of an example!)
Will I read the rest of these books? Maybe. I'll try book 3, and if matters haven't improved, I will very reluctantly take a pass on O'Connor's books. And I am VERY sorry to say that.
Good follow up book. I continue to be a big fan! Carlene O’Connor has thrown in a wide range of suspects and motives, and like most cozies, it's the amateur that takes the lead, but she doesn't circumvent the Garda (Irish police); she helps boyfriend/Garda Macdara clear his name and finds she has a knack, if not a desire to be less amateur and more official. The suspects and motives seem to be plenty with a slow enough reveal to keep me engaged. I enjoy the Irish references and language, but disappointingly the Guide in book one is not available in book two. Although I enjoyed the mystery with its twists and turns, it is the characters in which I am invested. The close knit nature of the “O’Sullivan Six” adds a bit of reality, enough quirky humor, and although residents of Killbane may be portrayed with some stereotypes, I still enjoyed it all. Great series to enjoy during St. Patrick’s Day with a cup of tea, green beer, or a shot of whiskey! Enjoy the Emerald Isle!
There's a lot going on in this book with the wedding party literally at war with each other as the father of the bride doesn't feel that the groom is good enough for his daughter.
And the ending of the book -- wowza! I honestly didn't see that coming.
If you've read and enjoyed the first book, by all means, read this book despite the range of reviewer comments you'll encounter.
I gave this book a 4 stars and that's because I thought the ending and solution was really well done.
