    An Early Wake Comment

    1. What a terrifically unsatisfying book This one only gets 3ish maybe 2.5 stars because of the setting The main character, Maura is incredibly unlikeable Maura, in the last chapters of the book mentions that she knows she s direct and honest and that puts people off I don t think it s that It s the lack of filter in some of the things she says in the book that puts people off, both in the book and those that are reading it The mystery itself was incredibly lame and unsatisfying It really wasn t an [...]


    2. I do enjoy these books The little community has some lovely characters and it is fun watching them assimilate this strange American young woman into their world.


    3. I think that the author wants to write a drama series set in Ireland but has to include a bit of a mystery because the publisher is making her That s what it seems like at least The mystery is such a backseat in these books It s over 100 pages in before they even find the body Then the mystery just kind of resolves itself, the main character doesn t really do anything to solve it I keep reading these books because I like the setting and I feel like it has potential, but at this point I don t thi [...]


    4. This series has been one that I have either liked or didn t really like In the third book, I have to say, that it fell under not liking it so much The story line was at times, slow with a lot of repeating of facts that had been repeated so many times during its run I would have liked to read about the Irish music story plot, which was really interesting I think there really needed to be movement instead of the constant staying at the pub, Maura s house, and sometimes dropping in to have tea wi [...]


    5. 3.5 stars I m really enjoying this series, especially since I can relate to Maura s point of view since she is new to Ireland I would be just as clueless as she is about Irish music but it was fun to see Sullivan s come alive like it did in this story The mystery seemed secondary to everything else that was going on but that was okay because this was a fun story.



    6. An Early Wake is the third book in the Country Cork series This series follows the character of Maura Donovan from Boston to Leap Ireland It is much that a mystery series It is character driven The reader follows the life changes of Maura as she adapts to a new country and life.In this book, Maura is maturing and coming into her own as a owner of a pub She has her doubts and fears as she is new to running a business She questions herself She hopes to remain profitable She is still unsure of acc [...]


    7. In questa serie si conferma il fatto che nei suoi singoli libri si parla pi della protagonista e del suo adattamento alla vita in Irlanda che delle indagini vere e proprie E poi, anche stavolta il colpevole era impossibile da indovinare in quanto completamente al di fuori del cast di personaggi Per un bel leggere e ti fa venire voglia di salire sul primo aereo per la verde isola


    8. Dollycas s ThoughtsWith this 3rd installment Maura realizes she has just been going through the motions of owning her pub She doesn t know if she is going to be able to keep it open now that the tourists are gone She voices her concerns to her friend Bridget who assures her things will work out When a college student comes around telling her the pub was a place musicians used to come just to jam she is totally taken by surprise But Billy, resident historian and storyteller confirms it to be true [...]


    9. I read this book right on the heels of the last in the series, and noticed two inconsistencies right off the bat First, there was talk of a lock in in the last book, but this time Maura said she didn t know anything about what a lock in was Secondly is the back room Maura talks about it in the last book, but this one she says she has no idea what s in it.I find this series intriguing, as I have Irish roots, but Maura is not very intelligent She has no clue what musicology is We learned in 5th gr [...]


    10. An Early Wake is the third installment of the County Cork mystery series Although enjoyable, there were aspects I didn t care for and I was a little disappointed There wasn t much of a plot with this one College kid comes to town wanting to know about local music Suddenly, a concert happens Someone dies Someone is eventually apprehended, although we re just given theories about the murder and motive No messy confession to bog things down As with the other books in the series, Maura worries A lot [...]


    11. I really didn t know what to think about this cozy It was interesting to read about the Irish Pub and the characters that worked there, but it seemed that the story was very shallow and on the surface I liked the author s Orchard Series so I was surprised that this book was disappointing The main character seemed uninvolved in her new surroundings even though she has lived there for six months The mystery was confusing to me as it didn t seem to be solved They caught the guy but we never did fin [...]


    12. Music is coming back to Sullivan s Pub much to the surprise and pleasure of Maura, Mick, Jimmy, and Rose Tim, a student from Dublin, is studying the music history from the days of Old Mick Pleased with the opportunity to talk about the old days, Billy tells the stories of the music that brought people into the pub to the point of bursting In doing so, some of the old musicians are encouraged to come back for a fun, music filled night Maura can t be happier, that is until the next morning when sh [...]


    13. 2.5 stars The mystery is very much secondary There really aren t clues so much as evidence found, the meaning of which is immediately explained There is no solving it, the author just telling you whodunit as soon as you are given the motive and introduced to the character who is the killer While the rest of the story is somewhat enjoyable, it does become refundant In the end, it s all a bit anticlimactic as well.


    14.

    17. The third book in the County Cork mysteries was frustrating it took forever to get into the mystery I think it was like Chapter 13 before the dead body is found Meanwhile, it s Maura opening the pub Maura closing the pub Maura visiting Brigid Maura interacting with the Irish Maura wondering if she s going to make any money Maura, you are boring me to death The premise was good, a young Trinity College student stops by to research the music heritage of Sullivan s Pub, about which Maura had no ide [...]


    18. I liked this book a lot I felt like Sheila Connolly was finally hitting her stride with this series, fleshing out the characters a bit And then, she blew it at the very end of the book.Out of the four books I read in the last week, three of them had love triangles I thought this book was going to be different until the end and there it was, the Maura Mick Sean triangle.I like romance stories and I like mysteries and I don t mind a little romance in my mysteries and vice versa But this formulaic [...]

    22. I absolutely love everything about this cozy, the secondary characters, the storyline, the setting except for the lead character Maura is repetitive I m American, I don t know your music, I m from a big city, blah blah blah I don t know how many times throughout her not knowing Irish music came out, but I GET IT She s kind of a huge jerk, but I will keep reading because I love all of the other characters It has a wonderful slow rhythm that reminds me of my time in Ireland.

    24. First one I ve read of Connelly s I enjoyed it a great deal Even though I got in on the 3rd book of the series, there was enough hints to fill in some of the blanks from the past ones to make it worthwhile as a stand alone novel In reading it, I thought I might have got in on the 2nd book, but didn t see that it was the 3rd until I turned it in and was looking at the others in the series.Synopsis The main character is a young woman from South Boston area who inherits a pub, a home and a car from [...]


    25. Third installment in the County Cork series delves into Irish music and its significance to the small town of Leap and specifically Sullivan s Pub Maura Donnelly, newly ensconced American born owner of Sullivan s is right in the middle of something special until she finds something unexpected in the back room of the pub Thrown into the middle of a mystery Maura has to decide if she can make a go of the pub and if there is enough to hold her in this tiny town Wonderful characters good research lo [...]


    26. I really enjoy these tales with one exception It seems obvious that Maura is supposed to be a strong female character and, while I understand that she s young, I wish she wouldn t spend so much time being a eejit When people tell her that things just happen, it would be nice if she could believe them instead of spending so much time trying to work things out with strange and rambling thinking Hopefully, she ll grow as the books progress Otherwise, good tale, fun characters I particularly enjoy B [...]


    27. This series holds such promise between the premise a young American inheriting an old pub and the setting Ireland , but the writing the protagonist are both justwell, not very good The writing is stilted and way too descriptive of every day acts yes, we now know after writing about it a dozen times how to make or pour a cup of tea , and the main character is just so unlikable, boring, and frankly unbelievable that I think the author has lost me as a reader Too bad, because this could have been a [...]


    28. 3.5 This is fast becoming one of my favorite cozy mystery series It s strange in that the main character ends up involved in the murders but doesn t go out actively investigating AND she doesn t do anything really stupid The pacing is strange in a good way, in that it feels slow paced and pleasant to me, but then suddenly I look up and realize that I managed to listen to the entire book almost in one sitting.
