The New York Times bestselling author of An Early Wake returns to Ireland where Sullivan's Pub owner Maura Donovan gets mixed up with smugglers.

After calling Ireland home for six months, Boston expat Maura Donovan still has a lot to learn about Irish ways--and Sullivan's Pub is her classroom. Maura didn't only inherit a business, she inherited a tight-knit community. And when a tragedy strikes, it's the talk of the pub. A local farmer, out for a stroll on the beach with his young son, has mysteriously disappeared. Did he drown? Kill himself? The child can say only that he saw a boat.

Everyone from the local gardai to the Coast Guard is scouring the Cork coast, but when a body is finally brought ashore, it's the wrong man. An accidental drowning or something more sinister? Trusting the words of the boy and listening to the suspicions of her employee Mick that the missing farmer might have run afoul of smugglers, Maura decides to investigate the deserted coves and isolated inlets for herself. But this time she may be getting in over her head...

I absolutely love this series!!! I also disagree with the previous reviewer. As an Irish American who has studied my roots, this book is most definitely believable. In fact, I feel it is the best one in the series, so far, and I highly recommend it!!!!

This is the least credible of the three series by this author. I dumped this one at chapter 20 when I could no longer buy into the less-than-forthright central character and her ridiculous choices to take on risk herself when she had clearly better options. Probably won't look for any more of this series. Like the author's other two much more.
