Roscrea, Tipperary. Traditionally an old market town, Roscrea is an absolute haven in the middle of Ireland.

    Siobhan is now Garda O'Sullivan, and her five siblings couldn't be prouder. While her brother James runs Naomi's Bistro, Siobhan is doing her part to keep the village safe. Of course, Kilbane is pretty quiet compared to a place like Dublin, where Macdara Flannery has gone to be a detective sergeant. The rest of its beauty lies in the incredibly authentic tone, descriptions, and most of all dialogue, which together paint a vivid picture of the bucolic, coastal Irish town of Roonatellin and some of its very ordinary residents. This slim page book starts off with the death of a major character.

    The cutest of a number of upscale seaside towns unfurling south from Dublin like a string of pearls. Dalkey is both a short drive and a million miles away from the busy city. With a castle, a mountaintop folly, lovely beaches, and some fine restaurants, this is a town that tempts you to settle into its comfortable affluence. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CARLENE O'CONNOR AND MURDER IN AN IRISH VILLAGE If Janet Evanovich and Maeve Binchy wrote a book together, Murder in an Irish Village would be the result. The Irish setting rings with authenticity and Siobhan O'Sullivan is a character to savor. She's funny, feisty, and fearless. I want her to be my new best friend.
