I was looking for a new author and this was just what I was looking for.
Gripping, funny emotional everything in the right proportion. Good and long to get lots of time for detail, lots of good characters. I kept on trying to figure out who done it but I was wrong right until the end. Super story. I am going to read it all again now. To catch up with the clues I didn't notice the first read. I loved the whole thing. Gold Star for effort!
I picked this book up at the public library not knowing anything about it except it was a mystery. I like mysteries. I started reading it and loved it. I ended up getting the audible version because I had more time to listen to a book than sit and read one. I have since listened to it 3 times. I really like the story. The characters are fun. I can't wait until the next book comes out in Feb.

Where does Murder in an Irish Village rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have a couple hundred audiobooks in my library. I've also listened to hundreds borrowed from my public library for the past 20 years. Murder in an Irish Village ranks in the top 10. The storyline and characters combined with Caroline Lennon's performance made for one of the most entertaining listening experiences I've had by an audiobook. And that's saying something, because I RARELY write reviews!
What did you like best about this story?
I like the close relationship the O'Sullivan Six have with each other. Of course they're siblings and have disagreements and bicker the way brothers and sisters do, especially teenagers, but they always look out for each other. You really care about them and what happens to them. They each have such unique personalities. The interactions with Siobhán and Ciarán/Kieran(spelling?) really cracked me up!
What about Caroline Lennon’s performance did you like?
It was performed flawlessly by Caroline Lennon. There were quite a few characters in the story and I had no trouble discerning who was talking at any given time.
This was the first book I've listened to her narrate. I am so delighted to have discovered her!
Please keep Caroline Lennon for the O'Sullivan series!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were several times. Without giving away spoilers, I'll just mention the O'Sullivan Six and how they cope with the loss of their parents. The way they talk about their Ma and Da make me wish I was in the story and could've met them.
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! The storyline was unique, realistic and the characters were authentic. Ms. O'Connor, you made me care deeply about the O'Sullivan Six. I loved Siobhán and her sarcastic, witty, feisty personally paired with how close she and her siblings are. There were so many times I laughed out loud throughout the book. It was completely entertaining.
I can say that I am truly looking forward to the next book in this series and hope I don't have to wait long to see what the O'Sullivan Six get into next!
Thank you for writing such a wonderful "cozy" mystery! Please keep them coming!
