WHEN IRISH EYES ARE LYIN'... Emily Andrew is earning some much-needed green by navigating the twisting roads of Ireland with a group of seniors, including her beloved Nana. But once the hearty troupe from Iowa lands on Irish sod, trouble starts brewing: there's a death-defying incident with a horse-drawn carriage . . . and a gender-bending encounter with Emily's ex-husband Jack, now known as Jackie. No wonder Emily has come down with a smarting case of hives! The plot thickens like Irish stew when the group settles into Ballybantry Castle, where a ghost is said to wander the halls. But it's no blarney when a very real corpse turns up in one of the guest rooms. While the murderous malarkey has Emily step-dancing as fast as she can, one sure thing emerges from the mists: not even St. Paddy himself could drive out the spiteful serpent that slithers among them!

Emily and her group of senior Iowan tourists discover murder in an Irish caste this time around. I like cozy mysteries in between angstier/darker reads. This series is fun because due to the same basic core group of travelers you get a small town cozy feel but since they are on tour you also get t...
Not as good as the first, felt like the character kept jumping to "out-there" conclusions that made her come across as silly. Still, a good story and great characters and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.
