A new-to-me author with a great fun read!
Right upfront with full-disclosure, I admit that I am predisposed to love books set in Ireland. Pair that with a good whodunnit, old-fashioned detective story and you’ve got me!
January Quail is a journalist who writes about antiquities. When a “bog body” is found in Ardee, January is dispatched to get the goods. What she gets is a mystery, when it’s quickly discovered that this is no 1,000 year-old corpse, though it’s been staged as one. Can she find out the truth when even the Gardai seem uninclined?
Sherlock [what a great name for a mystery writer!] pulls it all together with red herrings, more dead bodies, and a secret so old it would never have been unearthed otherwise. Preserved is a fun read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommend!!!
