Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Emotions buried for years, even decades, burst into violence in this character-driven mystery. After the death of her loathed father, Californian Merrit Chase travels to the Irish village of Lisfenora for its annual matchmaking festival, where she hopes to confront near-mythical matchmaker Liam Donellan, the man she believes to be her real father, based on journals left by her mother, who died when Merrit was just 13. But Merrit is not alone in searching for Liam: predatory Kate Meehan, still resentful at being put up for adoption as an infant, also arrives seeking her matchmaker father. As Lisfenora celebrates Liam’s birthday on the night before the festival begins, Lonnie O’Brien, scion of the village’s most powerful family, is murdered. While there is no lack of motive—Lonnie had raped Liam’s son’s ex-girlfriend and was blackmailing several of the principal characters—the investigation reveals dreadful secrets from the 1970s that can set some questions to rest. Too many die too young in these pages, but Alber achieves some measure of comfort and closure in her pain-filled, atmospheric debut. --Michele Leber
