I probably missed all the Ireland-esque build-up when I was so 3. I probably missed all the Ireland-esque build-up when I was so baffled at the beginning.
Bummer on my part. I think a re-read might be in order now that I know what is going on. I might do that before book two comes out. I had a hard time liking the main character since she went out of her way to hit a man when he was down. It was all heresay at that point and I think she should have let the police leap to their own conclusions in that aspect. I enjoyed the last fourth of the book much more Guess - Officer!

First, so you know, I got Dead in Dublin from Netgalley. Also, Catie's a friend and I love her books in general, and pounced on this one super fast because it sounded so good and did I say I love her books? She's an amazing writer. Now, onto the book. Everything—except having one of her clients drop dead at the statue of fabled fishmonger, Molly Malone. I'm going to start with why I wanted to read this book. Catie lives in Dublin. Having her character be an American living in Ireland really grabbed me, because I felt like it would give me a really good sense of the place from an American perspective, but without any obnoxious judginess.
Megan appreciates Dublin and the Irish people and culture. Her point of view makes it so an American reader can easily understand the differences and sometimes quirkiness of Ireland, but without it being condescending and obnoxious. I felt like I was in Dublin and I could almost hear people speaking.
This is a cozy mystery, so it moves at a slower pace than other mysteries, and yet this one felt like it moved at a quick clip. I was hooked by the mystery and hated having to set the book down to do anything else. I appreciated that Megan's involvement in the mystery happened so organically, and that she wasn't looking to horn in at all. She was a fresh take on the amateur sleuth. But then between her boss and the grieving relatives, she feels compelled to help solve Elizabeth's murder.
The little bits of information she tracks down for them pull Guess - Officer! - Dead Unique deeper and deeper into the mystery. I really liked her developing Guess - Officer! - Dead Unique with Detective Bourke. He's very real and takes the information she gives him without a lot of bitching about how she shouldn't be involved. He points out she shouldn't be, but he's the type of detective who wants to solve a case and so the clues she finds are useful.
Also, she doesn't get in the way or 't withhold information from him, or treat the Gardai like an enemy. Megan is a really likeable character. She's good at her job, reasonable, thoughtful, generous, Randy Katana - Fancy Fair / Play It Loud a good friend. She cares about people, even strangers, and she's smart.
I really loved Guess - Officer! - Dead Unique book and I strongly recommend it. It's perfect for a rainy day by the fire. By way of teasing me, the first chapter of the next book was included, and I was very very very disappointed that I couldn't get it right now. Nov 22, Mary rated it it was amazing.

Jan 07, Sharon Tyler rated it really liked it. It is currently scheduled for release on December 31 Dead in Dublin is a great introduction to a series.
I liked Megan's character, and the fact that she had friends and a community that felt real- and while there is much more background that could be explored for her Guess - Officer! - Dead Unique her friends, I felt like readers got just enough to hook them.
I also liked that Megan was more mature that the typical twenty something that is found in current fiction. I could relate to her love of sleep, food, and routine more than I usually relate to lead characters.
I like that there were hints and bits about Megan's past and family that were revealed through the entire book, there was no huge information dump to overwhelm readers- which sometimes happens in first books of intended series.
I Guess - Officer! - Dead Unique getting to meet people right alongside Megan as she gets caught up in answering questions that Liz's death stirred up, and getting to know her circle of friends as well.
I love that the group was eclectic in the way many of our chosen family are, and could only be envious of the friends that Megan has. The mystery was well plotted and paced, and I was thrilled to be surprised with the culprit, method, and motive of the murder. The addition of a grumpy boss, super cute puppies, and the possibility of romance for friends kept the read even more interesting and enjoyable. I look forward to whatever comes next from Murphy.
Dead in Dublin is an engaging and entertaining read. This is a series that I look forward to following.
