Celtic Chains Author:Donna Kelly Dottie Faye Sinclair is on edge from the minute she arrives in Ireland. She is there to help her niece, Emma Cotton, and the investigation of Liam Gallagher, a textile shop owner in the quaint town of Merrill. But talk of banshees and pookas, mythical creatures of the Emerald Isle, incites Dottie Faye's superstitious nature and compromises her a... more »bility to help.
Gallagher was a student in a textile design class taught by Rose Peterson, a close friend of Emma's who was killed in what authority is described as a tragic accident. But Emma and her best friend and business partner, Kelly Grace, no it was murder.
Joining Emma, Kelly, and Dottie Faye is Kelly's mother, Maeve Quigley, who was born in Ireland and who is extended family lives in Merrow. But the family connection could be a liability when Maeve becomes a suspect in the death of a man linked to her father. And old hermit named Mick, befriended by Maeve soon after her arrival, reveals dark secrets connecting her father and the Irish Republican army. But he was murdered before he can finish his tail of death, betrayal, and subterfuge.
And Irish Garda detective finds physical evidence pointing to Maeve as the killer and is uninterested when Emma and Kelly find evidence to the contrary.
So while Emma, Kelly, and Dottie Faye hope that their hunt for Liam Gallagher will bring closure to Rose's case, Maeve hopes that their investigative prowess will keep her out of Celtic Chains.« less
