Inheriting a pub and house in Ireland, Boston expat Maura Donovan is having a tough time making ends meet. The music nights are great, but it's hard to keep the pints flowing with just two behind the bar. She starts asking around for leads on possible employees when the body of a young man turns up on her property and her attention is diverted to working with the local Gardai to solve the obvious murder. Why was he dumped on her property? Who wanted him dead? Is his death meant as a message for her? Even after the body's identified, the tightly knit community won't talk. To protect herself and the pub's reputation, Maura must once again play detective and uncover the dark secrets that lurk beneath the beauty of the quiet Irish village. VERDICT This seventh in Anthony and Agatha Award nominee Connolly's "County Cork Mystery" series (after Many a Twist) is a thoughtfully executed and charmingly talkative cozy. The Irish setting is authentic, Maura is a delight, and the characters are gaining depth as this series matures.—Susan Clifford Braun, Bainbridge Island, WA

Connolly's inviting seventh County Cork mystery (after 2018's Many a Twist) finds transplanted American Maura Donovan better adjusting to life in the small Irish town of Leap. Her pub, Sullivan's, is doing well enough to bring in a local band once a week, and she's considering a kitchen remodel to offer food. Then, everything gets thrown off-kilter when a badly disfigured body is found near the pub. With the crime hitting so close to home, Maura determines to investigate how and why the body was dumped on her property. Could the nomadic group called the Travellers be responsible? Or the young man who suddenly appeared behind the bar to help one busy night and then disappeared just as quickly? As Maura's questions begin to stir up fear and anger, she wonders whether the bucolic town has a seamy side and is harboring a killer. As usual, Connolly's lively characters and lovely landscape enhance her well-wrought, thought-provoking plot. Series fans won't be disappointed. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Jan.)
