First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros (11)

Today I’m participating in First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Vicki at I’d Rather Be At The Beach, in which bloggers share a bit about a book they’re reading or planning to read soon.  Feel free to join in by posting your own book intro, linking back to Vicki’s page and joining the FCFPT linky.


Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy was my second book for this year. I’ll post my review soon, for my stop on the Blog Tour. When I read the blurb for this one I was taken in by the Dublin setting, the protagonist’s job as a limo driver and the fact that it’s the first in a new series. The opening paragraph is quite dramatic too…

Chapter 1 

Elizabeth Darr died at Molly Malone’s feet. Molly—bronze, buxom, her fixed gaze distant and serene—gave no notice to cries of concern that became screams of alarm echoing off centuries-old stone walls.


Dead in Dublin by Catie Murphy

In Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty, murder occurs at the feet of sweet Molly Malone . . .

Ferrying tourists around Dublin for the Leprechaun Limo Service makes quite a change after years in the military. Still, Megan Malone is enjoying her life in Ireland. She likes the scenery, the easy pace, the quirky, quick-witted locals. Everything—except having one of her clients drop dead at the statue of fabled fishmonger, Molly Malone.

Most restaurant critics notch up their share of enemies. Elizabeth Darr, however, was a well-loved international star. She and her husband, Simon, had just had dinner when Elizabeth collapsed, and spoiled seafood is the first suspect. The restaurant’s owner, worried her business is doomed, begs Megan to look into it. Between her irate boss and a handsome Garda who’s both amused and annoyed by her persistence, Megan has her hands full even before she’s cajoled into taking care of two adorable Jack Russell puppies (which she is almost definitely not keeping). But if cockles and mussels aren’t to blame, can Megan find the real culprit . . .before another fishy death occurs?
