As the new owner of Sullivan's Pub in County Cork, Ireland, Maura Donovan gets an earful of all the village gossip. But uncovering the truth about some local rumors may close her down for good in this mystery in the County Cork series.

Bostonian Maura is beginning to feel settled in her new Irish home, just in time for summer tourist season to bring fresh business to her pub. But the first traveler to arrive is thirsty for more than just a pint of Guinness. Althea Melville is hot on the trail of a long-lost Van Dyck painting.

Maura agrees to help Althea meet with the residents at the local manor house, the most likely location of the missing art. But when the manor's gardener is found murdered, Maura wonders what Althea's real motives are. Now, to solve the secret of the lost portrait and catch a killer, Maura will have to practice her Irish gift of gab and hunt down some local history--before someone else is out of the picture...

I'm enjoying the County Cork mystery series. Maura is a likeable main character and provides an outsider/insider look into a small town in Cork County, Ireland. I've never been to Ireland, so I don't know how accurate Connolly is in her portrayal of the geography, the people, the feeling of Ireland. But I do like what I've been reading. I especially like how some of the characters come through as much more than they are originally envisioned. Stereotypes are shattered. I'm hoping Maura is able to solve the issue of serving food/light meals in her pub, and soon. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
