Summary

Summary

Danger comes to Cork in the seventh County Cork mystery from New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly, and it's up to Maura Donovan to find a way to protect all she's worked for.

Pub owner Maura Donovan is settling into a charmed life in Ireland--until a mutilated body on her property ends her lucky streak.

Boston expat Maura Donovan came to Ireland to honor her grandmother's last wish, but she never expected to stay in provincial County Cork--much less to inherit a house and a pub, Sullivan's, in the small village of Leap. After a year-long struggle to stay in the black, Sullivan's is finally thriving, and Maura has even brought back traditional Irish music to the pub. With a crop of new friends and a budding relationship with handsome Mick Nolan, Maura's life seems rosier than ever--but even in Ireland, you can't always trust your luck.

It begins with Maura's discovery of a body in the ravine behind the pub. And then, the Irish gardaí reveal that the victim's face has been battered beyond recognition. Who is the faceless victim? Who wanted him dead? And why was his body dumped in the backyard of Sullivan's Pub? Even after the dead man is finally given a name, nobody admits to knowing him. In the tight-knit world of Leap, no one is talking--and now it's up to Maura to uncover the dark secrets that lurk beneath the seemingly quiet town.

Laced with warm Irish charm, a delightful small-town setting, and a colorful cast of characters, New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly's seventh County Cork mystery, The Lost Traveller , conspires to delight.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Connolly's inviting seventh County Cork mystery (after 2018's Many a Twist) finds transplanted American Maura Donovan better adjusting to life in the small Irish town of Leap. Her pub, Sullivan's, is doing well enough to bring in a local band once a week, and she's considering a kitchen remodel to offer food. Then, everything gets thrown off-kilter when a badly disfigured body is found near the pub. With the crime hitting so close to home, Maura determines to investigate how and why the body was dumped on her property. Could the nomadic group called the Travellers be responsible? Or the young man who suddenly appeared behind the bar to help one busy night and then disappeared just as quickly? As Maura's questions begin to stir up fear and anger, she wonders whether the bucolic town has a seamy side and is harboring a killer. As usual, Connolly's lively characters and lovely landscape enhance her well-wrought, thought-provoking plot. Series fans won't be disappointed. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds.
