“I loved the setting, which I think made this series a bit more different and therefore more unique. I think it’s probably the biggest selling point of this series. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read about an Irish setting, right?”

While I have read Sheila Connelly before, this is my first book I’ve read in the County Cork series. I believe that this is the last book in the series, so I think that I will want to go back and read the others as well. But I picked up this book after enjoying several other of Connelly’s work in some of the other series, so I wanted to try this one out. I’m glad that I did.
I enjoyed FATAL ROOTS and enjoyed the different style of writing. I loved the setting, which I think made this series a bit more different and therefore more unique. I think it’s probably the biggest selling point of this series. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read about an Irish setting, right?
Maura, the heroine, is still someone that I think is still going through her growing phases. As this is my first book of the series I’ve read, I can’t really tell you if she has developed much from the beginning. However, I do still think that there’s still room for her to develop. She says she doesn’t know a lot of things in the book, but I don’t know if that’s an excuse or just a way to keep the mystery going.
I will say, there’s a lot of repetition in this book, which definitely bogs down the story. I think the author could have addressed that more better. In the end, it was still enjoyable and I will continue reading her books.
