Book Tour, Review & Giveaway: DIAL P FOR POISON BY ZARA KEANE (Irish Cozy Mystery)

Today is my stop on the Dial P for Poison virtual book tour.  I loved this book and my review is below, together with a fantastic giveaway

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Number in Series: 1
Publisher: Beaverstone Press
Number of Pages: 352


Movies. Muffins. Murder.
Maggie Doyle moved to Ireland to escape her cheating ex and crumbling career in the San Francisco PD. When the most hated woman on Whisper Island is poisoned at her aunt’s Movie Theater Café, Maggie and her rock-hard muffins are hurled into the investigation.
With the help of her UFO-enthusiast friend, a nun, and a feral puppy, Maggie is determined to clear her aunt’s name. Can she catch the murderer before they strike again? Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the café first?
Cozy, quirky, and fun, this tongue-in-cheek mystery is a delicious introduction to the Movie Club Mysteries Series. Grab a cocktail and join Maggie as she takes her detective skills across the pond in Dial P For Poison.

Dial P for Poison is the first in the Movie Club Mysteries Series and is set on a small island called Whisper Island near the coast of Ireland.
Maggie hadn't set foot on Whisper Island for over ten years, her father had been born there and she had spent many happy childhood summers visiting her relatives, especially her aunt Noreen who's cafe she would be helping in while Noreen recovered from surgery.  It was a perfect idea ..... what could possibly go wrong?

The local newspaper columnist Sandra Walker is not well liked on the island due to her nasty gossip column but who would hate her enough to kill her?  Actually, there's no shortage of suspects whose lives she could ruin and when Aunt Noreen is wrongly arrested by the bungling local police it's up to Maggie to find out the real killer.

This was such a fun and light-hearted read, I liked Maggie and her inept baking skills when she nearly burned down the cafe.  With an assortment of island characters, including alien spotters, buried treasure, and a little flirting, this is a great start to a new series and I look forward to more of Maggie's sleuthing on Whisper Island!
