Pub owner Maura Donovan may have Irish kin, but she doesn’t seem to have the luck of the Irish. Who could have foreseen that bringing live music back to Sullivan’s Pub would lead to a dead musician?

Summer is ending in County Cork, Ireland, and with it the tourist season. Expat Maura Donovan is determined to keep Sullivan’s Pub in the black as the days grow shorter—but how? When she hears that the place was once a hot spot for Irish musicians who’d come play in the back room, she wonders if bringing back live music might be Sullivan’s salvation.

As word gets out, legendary musicians begin to appear at the pub, and the first impromptu jam session brings in scores of music lovers. But things hit a sour note when Maura finds a dead musician in the back room the next morning. With a slew of potential suspects, it’s going to take more than a pint and a good think to force a murderer to face the music.

This is a well written cozy mystery series that is full of heart, as well as fairly complex mysteries.

This book is the first in a series, An American with Irish roots inherits a bar in county Cork, The books conveys the ups and downs of business, being new in and 'old' place. New friendships, and possible romantic encounters, the Irish's love of music and myrth. In all this was a good read, it was a little slow at first, then gets better and better
