I’m going back in my Goodreads file of five star reads. If I look at one I read two years ago and I can remember the story with renewed pleasure, I know it deserved every one of those five stars. That’s this one, Buried In A Bog, by Sheila Connolly.
My review: This is the first of Sheila Connolly’s third mystery series, and my favorite. Buried in a Bog is far more than a mystery–it’s the story of a young woman from Boston dealing with loss and finding her way forward, as well as a story of a small village in Ireland. It was grandmother’s last wish that she visit. It’s a story of relationships, generations, and above all, real—actually fictional, but for sure real people. It’s a mystery too, dealing with murder. This book satisfies on every level.
Another reviewer said, “Awesome book! The setting was cozy and real and made me want to head off to Ireland for a spell. Can’t wait for the next one!”
Since then, Sheila Connolly has written the next one, and others as well. I especially like the first of her fourth series as well. (It’s a bit woo woo.) But why don’t you check out all of her series on her Amazon author page? You’ll be glad you did.
