A West Cork Mystery

Here's what a

Fan had to say

This book was a delightfully cozy read. The reader slips into a lovely paced story, surrounded by the myth and mystery of whimsical Ireland.

The Irish countryside entices Miranda and Joe, a young American couple, to fall in love with an old house. On a whim they buy it, deciding to try on a more leisurely life in the unspoiled beauty of West Cork.

But the house is filled with secrets, of a haunting past when young Jonno Fitzgerald disappeared back in 1946. A fairy fort stands nearby, a strange place rumored to be the cause of several disappearances over the years.

Miranda finds herself in the middle of the mysticism, inexplicably connected to the ghost of a little boy. An obsession forms, tearing apart her marriage in an effort to do whatever it takes to set Jonno's spirit free.

A West Cork Mystery is McCarthy's fourth novel and also his best. If you want to be whisked away to Ireland and kick back with a magical read, I suggest you pick this one up.

Author Bio

Roy McCarthy

My day job is Finance Manager for a legal firm in the beautiful island of Jersey, Channel Islands. After returning to the Island after a couple of years away I found myself with a little time on my hands. Accordingly my first novel 'Barry' was born - a real vanity project but one which I thoroughly enjoyed completing.

Whilst running around my home island I got the idea of writing a local historical novel with a parallel story set in modern times. The result was A Jersey Midsummer Tale set on two Midsummer days eighty years apart.

If not working or writing you'll find me coaching adult beginner runners and young track and field athletes.
