A little slice of Heaven on the Emerald Isle…

In the small village of Kilbane, County Cork, Ireland, Natalie’s Bistro has always been a warm and welcoming spot to visit with neighbors, enjoy some brown bread and tea, and get the local gossip. Nowadays twenty-two-year-old Siobhán O’Sullivan runs the family bistro named for her mother, along with her five siblings, after the death of their parents in a car crash almost a year ago.

It’s been a rough year for the O’Sullivans, but it’s about to get rougher. One morning, as they’re opening the bistro, they discover a man seated at a table, dressed in a suit as if for his own funeral, a pair of hot pink barber scissors protruding from his chest.

With the local garda suspecting the O’Sullivans, and their business in danger of being shunned–murder tends to spoil the appetite–it’s up to feisty redheaded Siobhán to solve the crime and save her beloved brood.

My thoughts:  This is  a first in a series and was a great read.  The story is about Siobhan O’Sullivan and her siblings.  I love the bistro in the story and the characters are well rounded and entertaining.  The Bistro barely keeps the family going so Siobhan the oldest turns down her scholarship to stay and help with the business and her siblings. Her brother James is accused of murder but she knows he couldn’t do this.  So takes her on herself and investigates what really happened.  There are a few twists in the story that keeps you turing the pages.  I look forward to more books by this author.
