This book was not cohesive in plot ( nor it's sub plots). It needs a real re edit
It reads like a rough draft ( including spelling and grammar ) and I found myself putting down the book several times and now wonder why I finished ( took 5 try's)
Did Shelton rush to deadline .. Writers block ?
Was there another co writer ? A different editor ? Or a personal detour/ crisis which caused a mish mash and poor transitions ... Were the irish car trips just filler ? Ms Shelton had too much going on in the subplots and left things hanging ( the new box saga the receptionist character who was not developed ..really when she held the key to finding Farrell again really ?
A honeymoon that had so much going on that the family personal crisis got in the way .. Beau and Sam going on their own merry way to maybe meet up later. Umm no ..
Book reads like a bunch of plot ideas thrown in a bag ... Not the expected developed novel
And then she gives away her inheritance as if it was nothing, as if she wasn't struggling financially, as if she didn't have a husband, a daughter or a sibling. What would you do? Would you keep working 60 hours a week trying to make ends meet or would you sell the house you inherited and share the profits with your closest family? Nah, probably just give it away to someone else to make them feel better.
Although the Taos setting and the sweet shop are major parts of the series, my fondness for the comfortable adult romance of Sam and Beau made the diversion to Ireland more than palatable. The relationship between the two has grown and become secure, and the self-deprecating insecurity of Sam has been put aside, happily.
Any implausible circumstances and situations I find typical of cozy mysteries, so that doesn't in the least diminish my pleasure in following the story through to its inevitable conclusion. The reason, I presume, the genre is "cozy."
I look forward to the next in the series, and plan to check out Connie Shelton's other series, as well.

This one set in Ireland captures the quintessential essence of the Irish country and character,bringing to life the quirkiness of the Irish characters portrayed.Connie can convey in an economy of style all the features of a captivating mystery compared to many other writers who resort to unnessary written verbiage.
The relationship between Samantha and husband Beau is so beatifully drawn that they become real people to the reader.
Looking forward to Samantha returning to her bakery.
