Another Irish St. Paddy’s Day mystery. (The Irish for Patrick is Padraig, which is why it’s St. Paddy’s Day). Writer Iris Crawford seems to have a book or 3 for most holidays, and when I saw this green cover, I knew it was for me. ‘Zany, witty, puzzling’ it says in one of the reviews.
And I like the detective team – caterers Bernie and Libby, sisters who run a restaurant and bakery + catering, and their father, a former police chief. The mystery is a good one, too – Mike Sweeney is drowned in a barrel of Irish beer – a prosperous stock broker, young guy, lots of friends.
And then, of course, we find out that all of those friends were….not so much. A good one!
