But Second, I need to point out two continuity errors in the Kindle version I just read.
The first continuity error is near the end of Ch. 42 where Charles Trichot (Edward Dowling) and Emily Clavel are beginning to discuss marriage. Emily addresses him as "Charles", then as "Edward", then again as "Charles". She did not know at that stage in her life what his true name was. She should be addressing him solely as "Charles" throughout.
The second continuity error is the date on the last chapter: Nov. 19, 2015. Jayne and Annie visited Old Lady Mary on Nov 20, 2015. In Chapter, 52, dated Nov 24, 2015 she visited her father in his nursing home. In Chapter 53, dated Nov 19, she is thinking about her visit with her father... 5 days before she actually visited him? Chapter 53 needs to be dated a few days AFTER Nov. 24, 2015.
There were just a couple of spelling/grammar errors that are way too common with Kindle e-books, so I won't quibble about those.
The story is about an ex-police detective whose new job is tracing family histories. She accepts a job for an older man who is dying. From there the author has the story from the past to current times as she hunts for the truth. An addition interest to this story is that the past is during the Irish rebellion in 1916. Since I am Irish I found the descriptions of this time period fascinating . In fact I am now planning to do research in to my Irish roots.
Interesting book, easy read and a well developed story. I plan to read more books by this author.
It did make a difference. Jayne may be saddled with a self-absorbed jerk of a husband, but her years on the police force certainly help her in knowing how to conduct investigations and interviews. Any attempts to intimidate her merely make her angry, and she also knows how to protect herself, which certainly comes in handy in this book.
One thing that amazed me (and shouldn't have) was when someone in the present-day timeline remarked, "There was fighting in Ireland?" Not everyone lived through all the IRA bombings in England, and few people seem interested in learning about their own history, which is why we keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. But to get back to The Irish Inheritance, although the identity of the person trying to hamper Jayne's investigation was rather obvious to me, I enjoyed the book a great deal. I liked Jayne, and her investigation was a fast-paced and intriguing one. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series.
