A sweet, entertaining cozy mystery set in IRELAND! THE SHAMROCK CASE by Linda Weaver Clarke is a very sweet cozy mystery. This is the second book in the author's Amelia Moore Detective Series, but it can be easily enjoyed as a standalone if that is your preference. Just be aware that there are two primary characters who feature prominently across all the books in the series. The author fills in any needed information from the previous book as the story progresses, but, if it is read as a standalone, the reader will miss the progression of the couple's romance. This particular installment is set almost entirely in Ireland and, as in the previous book which was mostly set in Bali, the locale plays a large part in the story. After listening to the first two books in this series, each has made me feel that I'm on tour in the region where each tale occurred. I have always wanted to visit Ireland and the author's writing vividly paints each scene so I feel as if I'm really there. As the story opens, our heroine, Ms. Amelia Moore, meets with a young lady who wants to find her grandparents and to learn more about her Irish heritage. Amelia's prospective client has recently learned she was adopted and that her birth parents both died shortly after she was born. Amelia accepts the case and enlists the services of Rick Bonito, to accompany her to Ireland and assist. Amelia and Rick are good friends but each is strongly attracted to the other, so it's exciting to watch their friendship evolve as they work on each assignment together. Please know that their romance isn't on the heat scale - there's no hanky panky - only some dreamy kisses. But, it fits perfectly with the characters and the story and is quite endearing. Of course, in Ireland, when Amelia and Rick aren't working on the case, they indulge in sightseeing and knocking off more of each of their bucket lists. For instance, this time around, I learned things about the Blarney Stone that I didn't know and felt like I was the one kissing it! AND so much more!!!! Their dining choices had my stomach growling. I enjoy romance and fairy tales so I delighted in the author's added references to fairy tales in this book. Rick fits the mold of a gallant knight hook, line and sinker. Secondary characters were a colorful lot that added to both the sense of being in Ireland and also to the light mystery. The narrator, Diane Lehman, excelled again. She also narrated the first book. Her voice was clear and her Irish brogue sounded genuine. Her male and female voices were differentiated and I loved her singing voice as she sang Irish ballads. I would not hesitate to pick up another book that she has performed. If you enjoy clean, entertaining romances with a bit of a mystery that won't leave you biting you nails and with a strong travel guide feel, you really need to check out this series. I can't wait to see how Amelia's and Rick's relationship develops in the next book! THE MISSING HEIR will be taking readers to Mexico! Hola Amigos! My full review will be posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club. Please check it out there! 4 out of 5 Wine Glasses!

Clarke brings the lushness of Ireland to life through her intricate descriptions and wonderful storytelling. This picturesque backdrop is the perfect setting for Clarke`s warm and captivating tale. The characters were enchanting, and the plot held me captive throughout. I throughout enjoyed getting into this mystery. It was loads of fun unravelling it all. At the same time, Clarke made me feel as if I were part of it all. I thoroughly enjoyed how often these characters ate and what they had. It made this working vacation so real for me. It’s also so intrinsic to who these two are. Amelia`s constant penchant for Rick`s appetite was so cute. I also love the depths and hidden aspects of Rick’s character. He was so much more than I’d originally thought he would be. I couldn`t get enough of him. As far as narrators go, Lehman was a fantastic choice for this novel (and series). She really brings the characters to life. I’ve enjoyed each novel I’ve heard her narrate, but she really blew this one out of the park. This novel was even more fun than its predecessor. I can’t wait to head off to Mexico with these two! Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Amelia Moore and Rick Bonito pair up to track down Kate's relatives. Their investigation leads them to Ireland. I've read one other novel by Ms. Clarke and as with it, so with this one, she shows us she is a master with description and dialogue as well as doing research on foreign lands. The story keeps moving and just when you think they have run into a deadend, something else turns up to keep their search for Kate's relatives alive. Ms. Clarke give us a sweet romance between Amelia and Rick that folds very well into their quest to find Kate's relatives. The uniting at the end is well done, heart felt and emotional. Yes, the combination of castles, restaurants and countryside blend into a wonderful story. I highly recommend this novel. I received a copy for an honest review.

Amelia Moore is at it again, this time in Ireland! Kate was adopted and wants to learn more about her birth relatives. She hires Amelia to find them for her. Amelia is a great detective and with the help of Rick, her partner, she is able to uncover Kate's heritage...and more. I loved the twist to the story. I loved the way real facts and locations were detailed in the story--I never knew so much about the Blarney Stone and it was fascinating! Amelia is an enjoyable character. She's not a superhero, but she has a real knack for solving mysteries. She is a normal, down-to-earth woman, which is refreshing. I love seeing the romance between Rick and Amelia slowly unfold. He's a great guy who can hold his own and is full of surprises. This is a fun, entertaining, clean series! Content: language: none violence: none *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
