I really enjoyed listening to this book. Shiela Connolly has a talent for blending the past and present together without being confusing or uninteresting. The pace is good and the characters are developing realistically. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

From time to time when I want a break from the harshness of the "real world" I listen to the next book in this series. Reading these stories reminds me that human beings can be kind and sensible. When I finish the books I feel hopeful, in spite of the discouraging events that are reported in the news.
I like Maura Donovan, the main character in this series. She is a down to earth young woman whose life has changed drastically, and for the better. She has moved from South Boston to a very small village in Ireland. That story is told in the first book of the series. I would strongly recommend reading this series in order. Maura is intelligent and resourceful.
The pace of these stories is moderate, but steady. There is an interesting cast of characters. There is no graphic language, sex or violence. The mystery is of more of a puzzle than a "who dunit".
Narrator Amy Rubinate is excellent. I am from the north central United States, so I have no idea if the accents are "accurate". And I've never been to Ireland. What is important to me is that I could easily understand every word that was said, and I could picture the locations in my mind.
This has become one of my favorite "cozy" series. I intend to listen to all the books in this series.
