What I’m Reading: Buried in a Bog

I just finished up listening to the audio version of the book Buried In a Bog (A County Cork Mystery).  I got mine from our on line library.  I didn’t really even read the description of the book-just downloaded it.  Sometimes when a bunch of new books all come in at once, I do that.

So was I happy with the selection..yes.  It was a book that kept my attention but it didn’t make listen and listen and listen to get to the ending…so I’d say definitely good but not a five star book.

Here’s what Amazon had to say about it, “Honoring the wish of her late grandmother, Maura Donovan visits the small Irish village where her Gran was born—though she never expected to get bogged down in a murder mystery. Nor had she planned to take a job in one of the local pubs, but she finds herself excited to get to know the people who knew her Gran.  

In the pub, she’s swamped with drink orders as everyone in town gathers to talk about the recent discovery of a nearly one-hundred-year-old body in a nearby bog. When Maura realizes she may know something about the dead man—and that the body’s connected to another, more recent, death—she fears she’s about to become mired in a homicide investigation. After she discovers the death is connected to another from almost a century earlier, Maura has a sinking feeling she may really be getting in over her head…”

This is the first I have read by this author and honestly, it wasn’t a bad book…super suspenseful-no…a fine read-yes.  Will I run out and read every book by her…as time goes on I am sure I will continue to pick up what my online library has.  Amazon readers said 4.3 stars.  I’d say 4.

  1. I read the book and loved it enough to run out and buy the next in the series which I also really enjoyed. Also by the same author is the orchard series. I read every one she has written and look forward to the next one. A friend of mine also likes them all.
