Maura Donovan checked her watch again. If she had it right, she had been traveling for over fourteen hours; she wasn't going to reset if for the right time zone until she got where she was going, which she hoped would be any minute now.
Friday 56:
"I'm so sorry -- she must have been a good woman. Sounds like you've had a hard time of it. So you've no place to go back to? No one who's waiting for you back home?"
This week I am spotlighting Buried in a Bog by Sheila Connolly which is a recent addition to my Kindle and Audiobook TBR pile. Here is the description from Amazon:
New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly introduces the first novel in the County Cork mystery series—set in a small village in Ireland where buried secrets are about to rise to the surface...

Honoring the wish of her late grandmother, Maura Donovan visits the small Irish village where her Gran was born—though she never expected to get bogged down in a murder mystery. Nor had she planned to take a job in one of the local pubs, but she finds herself excited to get to know the people who knew her Gran.

In the pub, she’s swamped with drink orders as everyone in town gathers to talk about the recent discovery of a nearly one-hundred-year-old body in a nearby bog. When Maura realizes she may know something about the dead man—and that the body’s connected to another, more recent, death—she fears she’s about to become mired in a homicide investigation. After she discovers the death is connected to another from almost a century earlier, Maura has a sinking feeling she may really be getting in over her head...
