Publisher's Summary

Summer is ending in County Cork, Ireland, and with it the tourist season. Expat Maura Donovan is determined to keep Sullivan's Pub in the black as the days grow shorter - but how? When she hears that the place was once a hot spot for Irish musicians who'd come play in the back room, she wonders if bringing back live music might be Sullivan's salvation.
As word gets out, legendary musicians begin to appear at the pub, and the first impromptu jam session brings in scores of music lovers. But things hit a sour note when Maura finds a dead musician in the back room the next morning. With a slew of potential suspects, it's going to take more than a pint and a good think to force a murderer to face the music.

Repetitious elements and annoyingly fretful

Any additional comments?

I've audio-read the 2 in the series before this. In these, I felt there were many weak spots in the relating of the story line but I liked the Ireland village setting that seemed plausibly portrayed, liked the basically cozy friendly pub atmosphere created and many of the characters. And the plots were decently interesting. But in this one, An Early Wake, the author had the main character mumble on page after page in repeated fretting over things seriously stupid to fret over at all much less for a page. It was like she was just trying to fill pages. It was so irritating I had to force myself to finish it . . for the plot end.

It Makes Me Want A Pint

Any additional comments?

There is not wall to wall action but there are characters that you find yourself caring about.
