This was a fun, light read! I think that what I enjoyed the most about this book was not so much the murder mystery, but more the characters and the culture reflected through them. The author painted what felt like a realistic picture of life in the small village Kilbane through the unexpected cracks brought on by an unsettling murder. The particular local language and the lifelike characters and relationships are what makes this book really come to life. Somewhere towards the end of the book the mystery sort of consumes the characters, which is why this book gets only 3.5 stars from me, but otherwise I found it to be quite consistent and enjoyable. I also can't ignore the possibility that Caroline Lennon's wonderful narration of the audiobook made the story and characters come to life even better. She's a great storyteller and actor, and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.
