Death of an Irish Mummy is the third installment of The Dublin Driver Mystery Series. Cherise Williams comes to Dublin to claim that she is heir to a earldom and Megan Malone is assigned to drive her. When Megan goes to pick up Cherise who is planning to take a bit of DNA from a long-deceased earl, she finds that Cherise has been murdered. Cherise’s daughters arrive and they care only about the supposed inheritance. Unfortunately, Megan’s boss is the prime suspect, and Megan must work hard chasing cues to clear her and find the real murderer.

Catie Murphy is an excellent writer, and manages to make this one light without scrimping on mystery and suspense. The novel is well-written and flows so that readers won’t want to put it down. The setting is Ireland, and it’s obvious Murphy is familiar with the country and culture because the setting of the novel and actions of protagonist, Megan, ring true. Murphy also develops her characters in such a way that they seem like real people. There are ups and downs in the story, and the dénouement is surprising and unexpected.

Cozy lovers, especially those who enjoy the Irish culture, will want to read the entire series. They are fun, cute, fast reads and are suitable for all ages.
