The Shamrock Case is an engaging cozy with twists and turns that captured and held my interest. Once again, the author has done a wonderful job with the characters and setting. Amelia is a smart, kind, and altogether admirable main character. I continue to relish the relationship between Amelia and Rick, which is purposeful, but also fun and flirty. I loved taking a virtual trip to colorful, vibrant Ireland, and could visualize the countryside, churches, inns, and famous attractions, like the Blarney Stone. Before I read this book, I was interested in visiting Ireland, which I picture as very lush and green. Now, I'm even more eager to travel to this gorgeous country, and to taste some of the delicious food featured in the book, like shepherd's pie. In back of the book there's a short list of Irish terms, such as Blathering and Dia Duit, which are used in the book, which is a charming little touch. I enjoyed this second mystery very much. The Shamrock Case is suitable for older children and adults.
Thanks to Linda Weaver Clarke for providing me with a complimentary copy of The Shamrock Case. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Missing Heir, in which Amelia, Rick--and readers--will venture to Mexico.
