Book Club Fun

Book Clubs are the best! I had a wonderful evening chatting with the Half Sour Book Club in Chicago. To celebrate MURDER IN AN IRISH PUB they had brown bread, curried chips, Barry's tea and a poker hand spread. How cool is that? #Mysteries #CarleneOConnor #Irish #MaryCarter #murdermystery #cozymystery #Ireland

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2020

It's never too early to be excited about the new year. As much as I'm intending on enjoying the rest of 2019, I am eagerly awaiting MURDER IN AN IRISH COTTAGE. This event at the BOOK CELLAR in Chicago will be tons of fun. Hope you can join me! March 18th 2020. Cheers! #MaryCarter #murdermystery #cozymystery #Ireland #Christmas #CarleneOConnor

Sweet things to come and some already here!

I might be biased but I think books made great holiday gifts. Even better, ones set during the holiday season. Still looking for a great gift? Try CHRISTMAS COCOA MURDER. Up for BEST ANTHOLOGY OF 2019 by Suspense Magazine. Readers are loving all three anthologies! #Mysteries #CarleneOConnor #HometoIrelandMysteries #Christmas #Christmasstories #Irish #Ireland #murdermystery

Who's Listening?

Audiobooks are a great activity, whether alone, with a date, spouse, or family members. Curl up by the fireplace, grab a mug of hot cocoa (or whiskey, or wine) and listen to a story. I'm thrilled that all of my mysteries are available on audio for listeners everywhere. Cheers! #IrishVillageMysteries #MaryCarter #cozymystery #Mystery #Ireland #Christmas
