A little slice of Heaven on the Emerald Isle... In the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, Naomi'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. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CARLENE O'CONNOR AND MURDER IN AN IRISH VILLAGE   "If Janet Evanovich and Maeve Binchy wrote a book together, Murder in an Irish Village would be the result. The Irish setting rings with authenticity and Siobhan O'Sullivan is a character to savor. She's funny, feisty, and fearless. I want her to be my new best friend. I also want another book by Carlene O'Connor to read. This one is delicious fun."--Laurien Berenson, author of Live and Let Growl "A smart whodunnit in an idyllic locale. I dare you not to be charmed by sleuth Siobhan and her siblings, the O'Sullivan Six."--Barbara Ross, author of Musseled Out "A delightful, funny, fast-paced romp of a book. O'Connor has written a vivid evocation of life in a small Irish town, an evocation replete with sharp characterizations and dialogue real enough to make you believe you're sitting in an Irish pub. A satisfying read that will keep you entertained from the first to the last page."--Isis Crawford, author of A Catered Tea Party… (més)

As I have so enjoyed the Irish village of Leap in the County Cork series created by author Sheila Connolly and my reading of that series is coming to an end, I was excited at the thought of beginning a new series in a small Irish village. I'm now in the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, and it's a delight to meet Siobhán O’Sullivan and her 5 siblings, otherwise known about the village as the O'Sullivan Six. As the oldest female, Siobhán is the guardian of the younger siblings after the death of their parents in an auto accident on their way back from a rare weekend away in Waterford. Rare, as Naomi and Liam O'Sullivan are owners of Naomi's bistro and all of the children are carrying on. But their home, their livelihood, and their reputations are all at risk as a dead body is found in the bistro. Siobhán becomes an amateur sleuth much to the disquiet of Garda Macdara Flannery.

This cozy is charming not only for the beauty of the small village setting but for the wonderful cast of characters living their everyday lives helping one another navigate in times of sorrow, in unsettled times wondering who among them is a murderer, and in times of celebration. The novel is laced with emotions and at times I smiled with them, laughed with them, felt tears come to my eyes, and then smiled and laughed some more especially when the younger ones were being "cheeky" to Siobhán. I was also grateful for the "Pronunciations and Glossary" at the beginning of the cozy as I referred to it several times.

My favorite line in one of the moments Siobhán was thinking to herself, "Silly, how much time human beings wasted on things that didn’t matter." ( )

Good cozy mystery. Audiobook was fun to listen to. ( )

At 22, Siobhan O'Sullivan is in charge of her five siblings after the death of their parents in a motor accident a year earlier. When the brother of the drunk driver who resulted in said accident shows up in their small village, he causes quite a stir -- and ends up murdered right in the O'Sullivan's residence/business. With her brother James seen as the most likely suspect by the police, Siobhan is determined to find the real killer.

This was a fun gem to have stumbled upon rather randomly. The characters were quirky and richly drawn, as was the town as a whole. It felt like being transported right into this "Irish village." There was a dash of romance, definitely lots of family drama (of various sorts), and there were certainly comedic moments as well (particularly with Siobhan's brood of younger siblings). Sure, I correctly guessed who the killer was pretty early on, but there were enough other suspects thrown around that I wasn't 100 percent sure until the actual reveal and the story was rich enough that it didn't matter so much anyhow.

The audiobook narrator was excellent at presenting the assorted characters (including one American) and I really enjoyed the extra tracks on this version that included background music at various points in the story. ( )

A great start for a series. Will be reading more. ( )

A classic cozy mystery set in a charming Irish village. When a murder victim turns up at Naomi’s Bistro, eldest daughter Siobhan O’Sullivan sets out to clear her family of suspicion by taking up her own investigation. Of course there's a handsome garda on the case. Not to mention a handsome American visitor who claims to be there tracing his roots. This has enough humor and wit mixed in with the suspense and romance to make it an entertaining read. I imagine it would also make a great book to listen to, so I may try the audiobook version of the next in the series. ( )

Dedicated to Dermot O'Rourke. I wish you were around so I could thank you in person. I still have the book you gave me —365 Days of Celtic Myths and I used portions of it in this novel. I can still see your infectious smile and hear your boisterous laugh.
To all my Irish ancestors and the people of Ireland.

Siobhan O'Sullivan hurried through lush green fields, adjusting every so often for the bumps and dips of the terrain, imagining that from high above, Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, must look like an ocean of green, rendering her a mere speck at sea.
