In Dublins 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. Everythingexcept 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 restaurants owner, worried her business is doomed, begs Megan to look into it. Between her irate boss and a handsome Garda whos both amused and annoyed by her persistence, Megan has her hands full even before shes cajoled into taking care of two adorable Jack Russell puppies (which she is almost definitely not keeping). But if cockles and mussels arent to blame, can Megan find the real culprit . . .before another fishy death occurs?

I liked the descriptions of life in contemporary Ireland for an American expat, which seem to be quite accurate, enough to keep reading to the end. It turned out to be one of those mysteries whose ending is so lame that I have an urge to sue the author for wasting my time. And, as another reviewer has pointed out, it could have been good. The author spun enough interesting complications that just a little more effort could have tied them together.

After waiting for this new series to come out, I was so disappointed. I love cozy mysteries and I try to be supportive of new authors and try to overlook flaws in their initial books, but although I kept plowing through it looking for anything that would leave me with even a slight desire to read book 2 in the series, I found the book to be a bust. The book was incredibly slow, with very little character development. After reading through to the last 35 pages, I finally realized that unlike the traditional cozy format, where the author leads the reader to suspect various characters before eliminating them as suspects and then circling around and exposing new suspicions, there were absolutely no suspects pointed at until the very end of the book. There was a technological clue, which led to a few questions, but no suspects. There was also absolutely no tension throughout the book until the final 21 pages. The 1st 15, of those 21 pages were, indeed, pretty good, but then the book abruptly ended without answer questions raised and without an appropriate wrap up. The saddest thing was that author had a good premise for the mystery and characters that could have been quite interesting. She just lacked either the skills and/or the experience to pull it all together.
