Books by Sheila Connolly
Relatively Dead (2000)
language
English
3.62 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This was a rather innocuous book other than the main character, Abby, seeing ancestors after touching certain objects. She just about falls into what is for her the perfect job, and later her boss knows of a house that she could "sit" for the winter. Before that, she leaves her ...
Golden Malicious (2013)

review 1: It's about that time where I have to stop reading a series that I've read from the beginning. The last book was so boring and this one was no better. The premise focused around bugs. Bugs, really? It started off well until it turned into solving a mystery about a bug. I understan...
Scandal in Skibbereen (2014)

review 1: Connolly creates characters that are as clear as day. Buried in a Bog seemed like a simple setup to the series where Maura - an American with few ties to family or place - ends up as the owner of a bar in a small village in County cork Ireland. In the second book, Scandal in Skib...

review 1: I always like these books because Nell Pratt is such a practical and likable protagonist. The settings around Philadelphia are somewhat familiar to me, so I enjoy being able to picture the places she goes. My only complaint about this book is that the actual mystery part was so...

review 1: I read this on my flight to Boston a week or so ago. I like the main character, Meg Corey, and love Seth Chapin! Some heroines of mysteries start to bug me after a time, but so far, Meg is staying likeable. Interesting mystery, although I was practically shouting at the book (...
Let's Play Dead (2011)

review 1: The entire time I was reading this little mystery, I kept asking myself why all I was reading was bits about being too busy, bits about electricity, and meals. It seemed odd that the whole plot carried forward along these interludes. I was also pretty disappointed with the reso...

review 1: Meg Corey, out of a job and with no real home, has come to the town of Granford, Massachusetts to start renovations on an old home that her mother inherited from distant relatives. She intends to fix up the home and sell it quickly but immediately things don't go her way. The s...
Fundraising the Dead (2010)

English
series

review 1: I don't know whether I'm just having bad luck, or I'm fooling myself that I actually do occasionally enjoy cozies in the first place. I mostly finished this one because I find it hard to leave a book unfinished once I get a certain distance into it. Part of it was that, as someon...
Buried in a Bog (2013)

English
series
3.62 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Oh My! There are two reasons that I take my time with a book-either it is a long slog and I try to engage in it OR as in the case of Sheila Connolly's Buried in A Bog, I am smitten from the very start - and lucky for me that there is another 1- 2 punch with two follow up books wa...
Red Delicious Death (2010)

English

review 1: like the exploration of history for the Massachusetts vicinity and the description of the various types of apples, but the mystery proved to be mushy. The ending was bland and not what was expected. I felt out of the loop since I had not read the first book of the series set in...

review 1: Museum director Nell Pratt expects some of her board members and benefactors to die--just because they are usually up there in years. But her boyfriend, FBI investigator James Morrison, thinks that some of them are dying before their time. As he, Nell, and his cousin Marty look...
Sour Apples (2012)

review 1: If I could rate this more like 2.75 stars, I would. I found this to be the weakest book in the series thus far. Still well-written, don't get me wrong, but the ending came across a little rushed and a little too pat. I found myself wanting another chapter or two to flesh it out m...

review 1: I liked this one better than the last one on the series and I think that, as the story goes, the author is getting better too.I have thought Meg a little aloof and submissive, especially with Bree and Seth (they decide for her most of the time), but now I know why, since in this ...

review 1: This is the 5th book in Sheila Connolly's Orchard Mystery series. Meg and Bree are finished with the apple harvest, and can have some down time before getting ready for the next year's season. Only strange little acts of vandalism begin happening. At the same time Meg finds a 200...

review 1: I was trying to find another book by the author but this one was the only book by this writer at the library. I downloaded it and decided to read it right away. It is a very short story, but a very well written story. I enjoyed it so much. Now I can't wait to find the book I ...
