In Carol Higgins Clark's tale, newlyweds Regan and Jack Reilly are honeymooning in Ireland, spending some much-needed time away from their hectic careers in New York City as private investigator and NYPD detective. But their romantic idyll at Hennessey Castle is rudely interrupted by the intrusion of a three-pronged mystery. First, Regan sees a ghost -- rumored to be the spirit of an 18th-century maid and lacemaker who never recieved payment for a stunning table covering ordered by the owners of the castle. Then a suspicious fire erupts, and the table covering is stolen by a pair of burglars calling themselves Jane and John Doe. Soon the Reillys are off and running all over the Emerald Isle in hot pursuit of international jewel thieves who have not only eluded but openly taunted law enforcement agents for years.
More "cozies" than suspense thrillers or hard-nosed detective fiction, the books in Carol Higgins Clark's lighthearted Regan Reilly series are sure to appeal to mystery fans who enjoy authors like Alexander McCall Smith and Lilian Jackson Braun. Paul Goat Allen
