What I thought of this book.
Amelia Moore and Rick Bonito our on a new case together. Amelia has a client who wants to find her birth mothers parents who are in Ireland. After doing a paper on her heritage it has her wanting to know more about where she came from and hopes to find some new family members.
Amelia and Rick go on the search and find out a lot about Kate’s mother and father. Why they had to leave Ireland in a hurry, etc. Along the way they meet Art a nasty character from Kate’s mothers past and he is still on the search for Katherine and wants to know where she is and he follows them around. It’s a good thing Amelia has Rick to ward him off.
The Shamrock Case was a great story about finding your heritage and these stories are light mystery and not like most cozies as there was no murder, but just a search to find a young girls family. Even without the murder I still really enjoyed this case and can’t wait to see where the next case takes Amelia and Rick.
I also enjoyed the romance that is blooming between Amelia and Rick. They are great characters and complement each other well. Rick sounds very dreamy and Amelia is a go getter when it comes to solving her cases.
If you like cozy mysteries that are not based on murder then you will enjoy this story.
Diane Lehman does a good job narrating this series but some of her voices make the characters sound like little kids. Her voice for Kate made her sound a lot younger than eighteen. Other than that she does a good job.
