Deathly secrets bog Blanche down in the idyllic Irish hillside…
The last thing Blanche Murninghan expects when she answers the phone is to hear her grandmother’s estate lawyer on the other end of the line. Her Gran had many secrets, so it’s not a surprise that he’s still uncovering them. But, it is a surprise to hear from him so early in the morning.
More impressively, the news he brings is no small thing: Blanche is the last remaining heir to an Irish castle. He’d finally tracked down any remaining relatives and found them there at Dunfaedan. Excited to see her inheritance for herself, Blanche grabs her sister-cousin Haasi Hakla and they pack their bags for a much-needed vacation to the Irish hillside.
When a body turns up only a day after her arrival, Blanche quickly moves to the top of the Garda’s list of suspects. She must clear her name and discover the truth before the Ballycill’s many secrets swallow her whole.
Joined by old friends and new, Blanche Murninghan is on the case. A Deathly Irish Secret is the fourth installment in the Blanche Murninghan Mysteries. Known for a lively cast of characters and atmospheric settings, each mystery can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story or read in publication order.
