I think in all fairness, it would have been better to have have read the previous books in the series. I have never been to Ireland and now want to visit after reading the wonderful descriptions. My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy.

Bloomsbury - The Julia Probyn Mysteries
Not a whole lot happened, but it was very readable and I liked the Irish setting. View 1 comment. This was a very quick easy read and although nothing really much happens it's still quite a nice story. I think it would make a nice TV series for Sunday afternoon viewing, the Irish countryside would make a stunning backdrop to this.
This is the second book I have read if this series but I don't think I will read any more as I do like something to happen in the books I read! Thank you Netgalley.

The last book in the Julia Probyn espionage series centers around Julia's visit to Western Ireland with a local attorney to decide if she will marry him and around a plot to build a large tourist development on the coast that they both want to avert. Beautiful descriptions of the little towns, farms, coast and local characters. Oct 13, Sara rated it liked it. It's always a pleasure to be back in Julia's company, with her stylish ways, busy globetrotting and sleuthing with a bit of romance in the air. This final book in the series, however, felt somehow tired and lackluster.
Still no regrets, and I look forward to rereading the whole series some time. Apr 30, Carol Kerry-green rated it liked it Shelves: Though I enjoyed reading this and catching up with Julia and her family once more, I didn't think it was any where near as good as the earlier books about her. The mystery was just, well, not mysterious. Dec 03, Anne rated it did not like it.
