Secrets and ShamrocksBook - 2016
Meadows, hedgerows, and tree-lined lanes welcome Jordan Mayfair to County Tipperary, Ireland. She's traveling again with her uncle, travel writer Alexander Carlyle. Their destination is a charming little town, Thurles (pronounced Tur-lis), where old friends, Colin and Grace O'Toole, own Shepherds Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast. They arrive at the B&B in the midst of a search for a missing toddler. The secrecy surrounding Little Jimmie's disappearance and safe return sets the tone for their stay at Shepherds, where secrets are as plentiful as shamrocks. While Alex visits the spectacular sights in the region for his travel guide, Jordan is drawn into the dramas of the townspeople. From the warm and welcoming B&B to the traditional Irish pub, Finnegan's, where music is "the very air that we breathe," the guests and locals harbor secrets that put Jordan at risk. Colin and Grace have their own secrets. Their unstable daughter, Bridget, may be charged with the murder of a well-respected doctor. Bridget, Little Jimmie's mother, has run away to the woods to the cottage of an old woman named Magdala, a believer in leprechauns and fairies. Jordan's visit to the cottage alerts her "architect's eye." Her discovery of a "priest hole" will eventually put her--and Alex--in the most perilous situation yet.
