December in Glendara, Inishowen, and solicitor Benedicta 'Ben' O'Keeffe is working flat out before the holidays. But on a trip to Dublin to visit her parents, she runs into Luke Kirby - the man who killed her sister - freshly released from jail. On the surface he appears remorseful, conciliatory even, but his comment as she walks away makes her realise he is as foul as ever.
My Take: This is the third book in this series and although I haven't read the others I found no problem reading this one.
Back in Glendara, there is chaos. The Oak pub has burned down and Carole Kearney, the Oak's barmaid, has gone missing. And then, while walking the dog up Sliabh Sneacht, Ben and her partner, Sergeant Tom Molloy, make a gruesome discovery: a body lying face down in the snow.
Who is behind this vicious attack on Glendara and its residents? Ben tries to find answers, but is she the one in danger?
Benedicta O'Keeffe known as Ben is trying to get all of her work done before Christmas. She is looking forward to her first Christmas with Seargeant Malloy. She and her boyfriend work well together as they try and solve a couple of different crimes, one being the murder of the local barmaid. This book was very thrilling and I didn't readx it at night when I was home by myself. If you like trhiller/mysteries you will probably like this book.
I received a review copy fo this book from Netgalley and was not required to write a positive review.
