The Lost Traveller

7th book in the County Cork Mysteries Series

Pub owner Maura Donovan is settling into a charmed life in Ireland—until a mutilated body on her property ends her lucky streak...

Boston expat Maura Donovan came to Ireland to honor her grandmother's last wish, but she never expected to stay in provincial County Cork—much less to inherit a house and a pub, Sullivan's, in the small village of Leap. After a year-long struggle to stay in the black, Sullivan's is finally thriving, and Maura has even brought back traditional Irish music to the pub. With a crop of new friends and a budding relationship with handsome Mick Nolan, Maura's life seems rosier than ever—but even in Ireland, you can't always trust your luck.

12th book in the Orchard Mysteries Series

Winter still has a firm stranglehold on the small town of Granford, and newly married orchard owner Meg Chapin is restless to begin her spring pruning and planting, while Seth busies himself with a new project of his own. But their relative peace is shattered when a gunshot breaks the winter silence and they discover the body of a dead woman on their land. What's just as troubling is that the state police have hushed up the murder and are warning Meg not to investigate.

Sheila Connolly

I always wanted to write, but it took me until 2001 to even try to write a book, until 2006 to find an agent, and until 2008 before I could hold a published book of my own in my hands. Now I write multiple mystery series: the Orchard Mysteries for Berkley, the County Cork Mysteries, set in Ireland, for Crooked Lane Books, and the Relatively Dead Mysteries for Beyond the Page Publishing. In 2018 I’ll be adding a new Victorian Village series, from St. Martin’s Press.

I also write short stories, which have appeared in multiple anthologies.

If that's not enough, I write for three different blogs:
