Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy – Blog Tour & Giveaway


Synopsis: 

In Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty, murder occurs at the feet of sweet Molly Malone . . .

Ferrying tourists around Dublin for the Leprechaun Limo Service makes quite a change after years in the military. Still, Megan Malone is enjoying her life in Ireland. She likes the scenery, the easy pace, the quirky, quick-witted locals. Everything—except having one of her clients drop dead at the statue of fabled fishmonger, Molly Malone.

Most restaurant critics notch up their share of enemies. Elizabeth Darr, however, was a well-loved international star. She and her husband, Simon, had just had dinner when Elizabeth collapsed, and spoiled seafood is the first suspect. The restaurant’s owner, worried her business is doomed, begs Megan to look into it. Between her irate boss and a handsome Garda who’s both amused and annoyed by her persistence, Megan has her hands full even before she’s cajoled into taking care of two adorable Jack Russell puppies (which she is almost definitely not keeping). But if cockles and mussels aren’t to blame, can Megan find the real culprit . . .before another fishy death occurs?

This was a great story. I loved ex-army medic, Molly. She’s a little tougher and more world-wise than a lot of amateur sleuths and has a slightly different perspective.  As an American in Ireland, she does stick out a bit but doesn’t let that stop her from investigating when a murder threatens both her friend Fionn’s livelihood and her own continued employment. Combine the great characters with a fantastic setting and nicely paced mystery and this is one cozy you won’t want to miss.

Dead in Dublin is the first in a new cozy mystery series by Catie Murphy.

About the Author:

Catie Murphy, who has written numerous award-winning fantasy and Sci-fi books under the pseudonym C. E. Murphy, began writing around age six, when she submitted three poems to a school publication. The teacher producing the magazine selected (inevitably) the one she thought was by far the worst, but also told her—a six-year-old kid—to keep writing, which she has. She has also held the usual grab-bag of jobs often seen in an authorial biography, including public library volunteer (at ages 9 and 10; it’s clear she was doomed to a career involving books), archival assistant, cannery worker, and web designer. Writing books is better. She was born and raised in Alaska, and now lives with her family in her ancestral homeland of Ireland.

  1. Visiting Ireland is something I have always wanted to do, but probably won’t be able to – the next best thing is reading about it – your book sounds great – thanks for the chance to own it.
