You can take the girl out of the force, but you can't keep her away from the action... Maggie Doyle moves to Ireland to escape her cheating ex and crumbling career in the San Francisco PD. When the most hated woman on Whisper Island is poisoned at her aunt's Movie Theater Cafe, Maggie and her rock-hard muffins are hurled into the murder investigation. With the help of her UFO-enthusiast friend, a nun, and a feral puppy, Maggie is determined to clear her aunt's name. Can she catch the murderer before they strike again? Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the cafe first?

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Zara Keane grew up in Dublin, Ireland, but spent her summers in a small town very similar to the fictional Ballybeg and Whisper Island.

She currently lives in Switzerland with her family. When she's not writing or wrestling small people, she drinks far too much coffee, and tries - with occasional success - to resist the siren call of Swiss chocolate.

Maggie Doyle quit her job as a police officer and left her ex--she caught him cheating! Kind of not knowing what to do with the rest of her life she jumps on the chance to go visit her Aunt in Ireland. So she travels from America to Ireland for a month of rest and relaxation--the best laid plans-- Her aunt owns a cafe and also rents out space to clubs--lets face it--not much to do in this small town off season. Maggie is asked to watch the cafe for a day--this was actually kind of funny--how does one learn to bake in one day? Her aunt retuns from having some teeth extracted. That evening at the Movie club--one of the town's most disliked inhabitants is found dead in her seat. Maggie's aunt is accused of the crime by the bumbling sheriff who really only wanted to be on the golf course. Maggie, who remember is an EX American cop has no choice but to try and clear her aunts name. There are quite a few twists and turns and more then a couple of laughs --including a new sheriff who shows up-- Will Maggie and friends be able to exonerate her aunt from the murder?

Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the cafe first? ***Includes a recipe for the fatal cocktail—minus the deadly ingredient!*** Maggie Doyle is a character I love to read about. She personable, uses her experience and nous to step up and face any challenge head on. The sheriff showed a lack of enthusiasm for his work. I was pleased to see a chance for a romantic interest. A thought out plot keep this fast paced novel flowing smoothing. A fun read for all lovers of cozy mysteries. My rating of "Dial P For Poison" is 4.25 out of 5 stars.

Ireland, cozy mystery, law enforcement, relationships, murder investigation The marriage is beyond dead, the job is totalled, and depression wants to take over, so Maggie hies off to visit with her aunt in Ireland and cover for her at the tea shop for a day or two followed by time to get it together. But. First problem is that she is expected to bake when she is clueless in a kitchen. Next is the murder of aunt's business rival. Good thing Maggie was a police detective in the states, as the local thinks aunt is a good suspect. There are twists, red herrings, situational and verbal humor filling the pages making this a totally delightful read!
