is how I would describe this addition to the series. Molly is as delightful as ever, but the "mystery" was a bit lacking and certain things were just too much of a coincidence to be believable. Add that to the fact the story just slams to a halt, leaving too many loose ends.

So I'm sad to write this because I really liked this series but "In Dublin's Fair City" is just too contrived for my taste. It starts out plausibly and like all the other books in this series, involves a number of mysteries. This time, Molly has been paid to go back to Ireland to find a long lost sister of one of Molly's clients. On her way to Ireland, she gets involved in a scheme to pretend to be somebody else and that scheme basically leads to her reluctant involvement in Ireland's fight for independence from England. This fighting for Ireland part, the people she gets involved in, all the various coincidences, the plots they hatch, all of it is just not believable.

Another big problem is that there is a big lead up to the final scene but then it ends abruptly and Molly narrates two paragraphs about the aftermath of everything that was going on. It's just a complete let down and frankly, kind of a cop out.

Unfortunately, I did not like this one. Here's hoping that the next on is better.

I enjoyed the continuing story of Molly Murphy, although this one is a bit too far fetched, but this book has not been carefully transferred to the Kindle. The dropped letters, occasionally strangely sized text, incorrectly hyphenated words, and run together words are distracting. I expect the Kindle editions to be better than this.

This wasn't as good as the previous ones. Something about it just failed to really grab me. I think perhaps it was because she was in Ireland away from those relationships that I have come to really enjoy as part of these books.

This book was the weakest of the series. It did not go in depth enough about the relationship between Molly and her brothers. Let's hope the next book is stronger.

EACH BOOK IS ENTERTAINING. I STARTED WITH THE DEATH OF RILEY AND WAS A BIT IRKED BY ITS INITIAL CUTENESS BUT IT WAS FUN TO HEAR THE TALES OF OLD NEW YORK. IN DUBLIN S FAIR CITY THE FUN STARTED WITH THE OCEAN VOYAGE AND WAS IMAGINATIVE IN ITS TELLING. GREAT WHEN YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO EMPATHIZE WITH DEPRESSED PEOPLE.

OK, more of a romance/mystery. Not very exciting, but was intriguing. It will be interesting to see her next book.

I like Rhys Bowen's books, but this one got a little far-fetched with too many turns in the plot.
