Recent Comments "Murder at an Irish Wedding"
I cannot tell you how much I disliked this book. I disliked the characters particularly the "heroine" Siobhan, the weak plot, the incredibly dumb ending, the weak vocabulary and the use of every Irish cliché the author could find. It was so obvious an American wrote this book because an Irish author would have been run out of the country. I read the first book of the series and rather liked it so I was glad to get an opportunity to read the second one. Thank you Net Galley for that. I have neve [...]
This is book 2 in the series. I read book 1 and gave it 3.5/5, but this one is only 2.5/5. Siobhan O'Sullivan is a young woman who has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. She runs a bistro in the fictional town of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland. She is also the chief caregiver/parent for 5 siblings since both her parents were killed in an accident. She does have an older brother, but he is a recovering alcoholic.She is catering a wedding in her small village, when a murder takes place. The [...]
2 stars for "it was okay" I did not personally feel comfortable reading on. It's marketed as a cozy mystery, but it in fact does not conform to the "clean" understanding for the genre. After a few too many details on who's sleeping with who, who might be in the family way, what a "hen party" is, drunkenness and smoking, and quite a bit of taking God's name in vain.The cultural aspect is fun, and the writing goodI just didn't feel that it fit into the cozy-mystery expectations and thus not into a [...]
Siobhán O’Sullivan is at it again in this second book by Carlene O'Connor.It's time for a wedding and nothing says love like a feuding family, drunk wedding attendants and of course, murder!The bride is horrified at the turn of events and when rumors begin to grow, Siobhan is the one who must solve the mystery. Her new beau, Macdara is a suspect and has no choice but to put his faith in Siobhan.I was fascinated by all the family drama in this story. I must admit, I was blown away at the end, [...]
I have to give this book a 2.5 rating for this sequel in the Irish murder series. This is the same rating I gave the first book. I will go over my reasons for why the sequel is on par with the first book as there are both flaws and slight improvements from the author.On a small note, there were misspellings and punctuation errors throughout the book that bothered me. There seemed to be more than the first book in the series and I don't quite understand why that would be since this is a follow up [...]
Murder at an Irish Wedding by Carlene O’Connor is the second book in An Irish Village Mystery series. Siobhan O’Sullivan is called to bring brown bread up to the Kilbane Castle for a wedding party. Her families’ café, Noami’s Bistro is catering the meals for the wedding group. Fashion model Alice Cahill is marrying Paul Donnelly on Saturday. The female members of the wedding party are outside waiting for the guys to show up to take a group picture (they are all in matching blue tracksui [...]
This second book in the series did not disappoint! The Irish village and its inhabitants are a pleasure to read about.The whodunit was well written and kept me guessing right until the reveal.The relationship between Siobhan and her siblings and their personalities ring true to life for me.I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This is the second book by Carlene O'Connor featuring recurring characters. I enjoyed the first one so was pleased that I got hold of another one as I found the O'Sullivan family to be a great bunch of characters.This time celebrities have come to Kilbane. A famous model is to be married, but the morning after the wedding party have arrived at the venue the best man is murdered. Siobhan with her love of mysteries cannot help but get involved.There are red herrings galore, snapshots of type-cast [...]
Every time I read a book where every review I read goes on and on about how wonderful the book was while I could never seem to like the book while I read it, makes me wonder what I have missed that everyone else saw. I definitely wondered about my thoughts about this book as I read it--as well as since I have finished it. I realize the author is trying to make the book Irish and give the reader a sense of Ireland while reading it, but I found the author used a lot of vernacular and jargon that w [...]
I like that this tale is set in modern Ireland with a society wedding taking place in nice surroundings, a castle. The author could do a better job of introducing the main characters and telling us who they are and what they do. I didn't understand for some time that Siobhan is part of the large family catering the wedding, who run a cafe in the village. Sometimes authors forget that not every reader has read the earlier book. When I did realise this detail, it made a lot more sense that she was [...]
Thoroughly enjoyed this second book as much as the first. Love mysteries, and when you add in the Irish traditions, descriptions, etc well, that's a good book!! Kudos Ms. O'Connor.
Murder at an Irish Wedding is the second book in the Irish Village Mystery series by author Carlene O'Connor. If you have not read the first one, this book could be read as a stand alone. The only difficulty may be getting familiar with Irish slang and the names which were explained in the first book. Siobhan O'Sullivan and her five younger siblings run Naomi's Bistro in the small village of Kilbane. They inherited the cafe when both parents were killed in an automobile accident. In this story, [...]
Another charming Irish cozy mystery by Carlene O'Connor. Murder at an Irish Wedding lets us back into the world of the O'Sullivan family we fell in love with in Murder in an Irish Village. This time, a famous model's wedding is threatened when the former best man, recently relieved of his duties, turns up dead two days before the wedding. With Garda Macdara sidelined from the investigation as a suspect, Siobhán steps in to solve the murder. This book had the same lovely Irish spirit, but had qu [...]
I was given an arc of this book for an honest opinion by NetgalleyWhat do a wedding in a castle, a famous supermodel, a drunken and mouthy best man, an off duty Guarda, and a tea shop owner have in common? They're all embroiled in Carlene O'Connors new book MURDER AT AN IRISH WEDDING.Murder at an Irish Wedding is a charming, delightful - cleverly plotted - cozy mystery fans of Miss Marple and Murder She wrote will love. I'd never read anything by Carlene O'Connor before this book, but I will cer [...]
I seem to be on a roll with books . . . and NOT in a good way! The last few in a row have been bad fits for me. I really liked the first book in this series. I loved the Irish small town and characters, I love Siobhan and her nutty siblings and I enjoyed the humour in the story. Unfortunately, this one was missing the sparkle for me. To be fair, I could not possibly care any less about wedding drama, and that is what this one was focused on, so it may just be that this story line wasn't right fo [...]
This 2nd book in the Irish Village Mystery series was just as engaging and suspenseful as the first! The bride isn't having too much luck with her wedding plans, especially when the best man is murdered! What did he do to deserve such a fate? Siobhan O Sullivan thinks that maybe he wasn't the intended victim. Between matching track suites, several red herrings, and her bistro and brood to take care of, Siobhan almost runs out of Irish luck before she figures out who the culprit is!I really enjoy [...]
I hung in with her because I liked her first book, but she needs an editor. Seriously. This one was rambling and the background descriptions -- lovely in the first book -- became tedious in this one and obscured the plot, which needed more action. Not sure I'll buy another.
Second book in the Irish Village series. I didn't like this one quite as much as the first book, but it was a nice cozy read. Sioban investigates the murders surrounding a wedding party stirring up all manor of trouble.
This is my kind of mystery. It is suspenseful but made me laugh out loud at times. If you enjoy watching episodes of Father Brown, this is your cup of tea (with a slice of brown bread).
Meh. Poor plotting and poor characterization sank this book (for me). There is absolutely no reason for anyone to put up with Siobhan's questioning and questionable behavior. Too many red herrings scattered about to mask the thinness for the murders' rationale. Her attitude about being a better investigator than the professionals was unbearable.
Murder at an Irish Wedding is the second book in the Irish Village Mystery series by author Carlene O'Connor, and I hope it won't be the last! The story was fast-paced, and kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing throughout. We return again to Kilbane, where the wedding of a famous model and her fiance (a friend of Macdara) is to take place. The best man is murdered the day before the wedding, Macdara is unable to investigate due to his relationship with the groom and bridal party, and Sioba [...]
An excellent follow-up to Murder in an Irish Village. I'm growing very fond of Siobhán and her brood. Siobhán is maturing as a detective. I hope she really does become Garda O'Sullivan. I'd love to see her and Macdara become a sleuthing team that occasionally includes all of Siobhán's brood for warm fuzzies and comic relief.
Enjoyed this second in Sioban's mystery solving efforts. Taking responsibility for care of siblings and family business whilst looking to her future , O'Connor keeps her MC real and interesting. The descriptives of Irish settings are appealing. Language is authentic to characters without being overdone.
Murder at an Irish Wedding is the second installment in the Irish Village Mystery series set in Kilbane, Ireland featuring Siobhan O'Sullivan and her siblings. The family is running Naomi's Bistro named for their mother who was killed along with their father in a drunk driving accident, and is thrilled that they have been chosen to cater a wedding reception for fashion model Alice Cahill and her fiancé Paul Donnelly.The best man Kevin Gallagher drinks too much at the pre wedding party and manag [...]

Siobhan's own beau, Macdara Flannery is in the wedding party when the original best man was removed after getting drunk and making a spectacle of himself.

Happy to read the follow up the Murder in an Irish Village, I am charmed by the O'Sullivan Six. Oldest daughter Siobhan is still riding herd on her brothers and sisters, running the cafe, and baking the best brown bread in Ireland. The last is what gets her into a posh Irish wedding at the Castle, in which Macdara, a Guarda and Siobhan's boyfriend, is an usher. His old friend from university is marrying Irish stunner & supermodel,, Alice. Siobhan delivers her brown bread & is witness whe [...]
Murder at an Irish Wedding by Carlene O'Connor is rich in the Irish culture. I felt like I was transplanted in Ireland. The focus is strong on the Irish roots of the characters. Sometimes, it is a bit overwhelming. The plot was steady with enough action to keep me guessing. The groom, his father-in-law and Kevin were acted a bit strange. Their behavior put me on edge as I dug further into the book. Then, a mysterious note appears to Kevin and my curiosity explodes. Drama, mayhem, and murder are [...]
This series is proving to be a worthy addition to the scores of cozy mysteries, with the charming setting of Kilbane, a small, quirky village in County Cork, Ireland. In this new entry, Siobhan is excited to join Macdara at an exclusive wedding at the castle when, of course, murder strikes. Siobhan feels duty-bound to help solve the murder so that the wedding can go on. She's a very skilled detective, despite her lack of training, and she has a good but reluctant ally in Macdara. Once again Siob [...]
When the village of Kilbane is picked as the site of the wedding of beautiful, wealthy model Alice Cahill, Siobhan O'Sullivan is not invited--but her brown bread earns her an invitation. Her boyfriend, local garda Flannery, is a childhood friend of the bridegroom, but aside from the loving couple the small wedding party is ill-assorted and unfriendly, even before the best man is murdered. Flannery takes his place as best man, and also becomes a suspect in the murder, so Siobhan feels that she ha [...]
The second of these books keeps the fast pace and light hearted feel but is more tightly and interestedly plotted than the first. I do wish the author wouldn't give Siobhan some of the ridiculous theories, such as throwing rocks at a victim from a tree. That was silly for a heroine that she is trying to legitimatize. The village is a wonderful back drop and the history interesting. But perhaps a little less doe eye for Macdara. Really, this is a book about a woman solving crime. I read the sneak [...]
