I have long been an admirer of Sheila Connolly. One series that I enjoy is her Cork County series. It features Maura, an American with ties to the county. On the death of her grandmother Maura returned to Cork County  to visit. She was startled to inherit Donovan Pub and a house. Maura decided to stay and run the Pub. She has made new friends and the employees of the Pub have become her extended family. The series covers her experiences.  The next book in the series. I am looking forward to read it.


“It begins with Maura’s discovery of a body in the ravine behind the pub. And then, the Irish gardaí reveal that the victim’s face has been battered beyond recognition. Who is the faceless victim? Who wanted him dead? And why was his body dumped in the backyard of Sullivan’s Pub? Even after the dead man is finally given a name, nobody admits to knowing him. In the tight-knit world of Leap, no one is talking—and now it’s up to Maura to uncover the dark secrets that lurk beneath theseemingly quiet town.”

The first book is 


After her Granmother’s death Maura travels to Ireland as she promised her Gramie. Arriving in a land that she no one, she is surprised to find the people friendly and they all know of her Gramie  and a few remember her Gramie. 

Maura accepts job at Sullivan working in the bar. 

Returning from a visit with a friend of Gramie she comes  across a scene of the recovery of a body in the bog. Maura must find out his identity before she joins him.
