An Early Wake by Sheila Connolly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is #3 in the County Cork mysteries and I'm a big fan. They're the cozy kind--small little paperbacks with no violent murder--just the occasional crime in the small town of Leap in western Ireland. Maura Donovan (raised in Boston and now a Irish pub owner for the past 6 months) is wondering how her little bar is going to stay afloat when a old guitar player wanders into the pub. Everyone knows him--he was a star in the early 90's and now he's back to play at Sullivan's Pub just like he used to. All of his friends come and play, too, which leads to Maura rolling in the profits. However, a dead body is found in the pub the next morning--why? Who was he? And how did he die?
I love getting to know the Irish countryside a bit more by reading these.
