ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.

It was an ok read, though it got a bit repetitive on the suspect list and Siobhan running around everywhere accusing everyone of murder!

One gaff that I found in the book, is that Siobhan was supposed to have gone to college/university at 21…here in the UK most go when they finish school at 18.  If she had deferred going until she was 21, all her friends wouldn’t have deferred along with her.

Would I read another book in this series (if it is a series)?  Debatable.

A little slice of Heaven on the Emerald Isle…

In the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, Natalie’s Bistro has always been a warm and welcoming spot to visit with neighbors, enjoy some brown bread and tea, and get the local gossip. Nowadays twenty-two-year-old Siobhán O’Sullivan runs the family bistro named for her mother, along with her five siblings, after the death of their parents in a car crash almost a year ago.

It’s been a rough year for the O’Sullivans, but it’s about to get rougher. One morning, as they’re opening the bistro, they discover a man seated at a table, dressed in a suit as if for his own funeral, a pair of hot pink barber scissors protruding from his chest.

With the local garda suspecting the O’Sullivans, and their business in danger of being shunned–murder tends to spoil the appetite–it’s up to feisty redheaded Siobhán to solve the crime and save her beloved brood.
