Annabelle Shannon returns to her ancestral homeland of Ireland and is eager to take in the sights and sounds, but more importantly, spend time with her grams at their family’s historic Gladstone Castle.
Soon after arriving to the sprawling home, situated in the outskirts of a quaint village, her grams delivers some exciting news: she’s planning to retire. Not only that, she offers for Annabelle to take over her position as a castle tour guide. In order to determine if Annabelle is truly interested, Grams invites her along to spend the night at a newly-restored thirteenth-century castle before it is set to open as a hotel.
But not long after settling in for the night at the castle hotel, one of the elderly guests is found face down on the floor, motionless, in one of the opulent quarters. The death is quickly deemed to be of natural causes, but Annabelle has her doubts…
Will the person responsible be apprehended before another victim is claimed?
This fun-filled and clean Irish cozy mystery will have you guessing until the very end.
KU Book Review:
I’d been meaning to get to this book since it was published and St Patrick day is the perfect time, . Annabelle was different from most of the main characters I’ve read about since she was a busy lawyer who needed a break…and took said break in Ireland indefinitely. It’ll be interesting to see what she gets into while she’s there and if her Grams does decide to do some traveling.
Once the book was to a certain point, it wasn’t too hard to guess the killer, but I loved how the police staged a reenactment of the events leading to the murder. I’m sure that took the perp off guard. I’ll be borrowing the next in series on KU soon!
