Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 237 - Murder in an Irish Village by Carlene O;Connor, Someone to Care by Mary Balogh
Murder in an Irish Village by Carlene O'Connor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Siobhan and her siblings, the O’Sullivan Six are having rough year. First their parents are killed by a drunk driver and now there is a body in their pub. Not only a body but the brother of the man who hit and killed their parents. Her brother James is the one accused of the murder and Siobhan just cannot stop trying to find out who really did it. This was entertaining but a little shallow. Everyone is a suspect but I figured it out from the very first. I did find the view of Ireland to be a little overblown and the dialog often sounded false. The reader did a good job with the material she had.
Someone to Care by Mary Balogh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Life does go on but sometimes while it moves on you just stop living. That is what has happened to Viola Kingsley but when she finally starts living again she goes all out. I liked that Violal has her own story. She had a bad marriage that turned out to not be a marriage at all. She deserves a HEA and when she sees Marcel Lamarr both decided to run away from everything and just enjoy life. Of course that only last so long. Family can be both the best and worst when they interfere in your private life. It takes both to bring Marcel and Viola together in the end.
I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
