Carlene O’Connor. Kensington, $25 (304p) ISBN 978-1-61773-852-4
At the start of O’Connor’s captivating third Irish Village mystery (after 2017’s Murder at an Irish Wedding), Father Kearney summons Siobhán O’Sullivan, who’s about to start her first day at Kilbane Gardai Station, to St. Mary’s Churchyard, where the body of a man lies in the snow. Someone fatally shot the victim, later identified as American Peter Mallon, the patriarch of the wealthy Mallon family. Fingers point to everyone involved with filming a documentary in Kilbane about the Mallons’ Irish heritage. Siobhán is dismayed to discover that she must report directly to her ex-boyfriend Det. Sgt. Macdara Flannery, who’s been temporarily called up from Dublin to help close the case. They forge an uneasy partnership as they question suspects and uncover a tangled web of brotherly betrayal and unresolved heartbreak. Fans of light mysteries with an Irish flavor will look forward to Siobhan and Macdara’s further adventures. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Mar.)
