Death of an Irish Diva by Mollie Cox Bryan is the third book in the “Cumberland Creek” mystery series. Publisher: Kensington
Vera’s dance studio may have suffered when Emily waltzed into town, but the croppers know she’s not a vengeful murderer. Lucky for her, co-scrapbooker Annie is a freelance reporter eager to vindicate her friend. What she discovers is a puzzling labyrinth of secrets that only add question marks to Emily’s murder. Just when it seems they’ve run out of clues, an antique scrapbook turns up and points the croppers in the right direction – and brings them face to face with a killer more twisted than a Celtic knot.
This was a very enjoyable read. I love the tone and the comfortable writing style of this well written whodunit. You are immediately caught up in the actions of the characters as Annie does what she does best and that is clear her friend’s name and find the real murderer. Most of the gang is back and OMG, I love Beatrice. Action-filled with some twists, this was by far the best book in this delightfully charming series.
