  • The Dinner Club Murder Mysteries

    The Gourmet Dinner Club travels to Ireland to enjoy Irish cuisine while staying at a medieval, ivy-covered castle. Jane Marsh hopes Dale Capricorn will ask her to marry him at this romantic dream destination. But her plans are put on hold when the elderly castle owner becomes violent, a club member restrains him, and he collapses and dies.

    The police believe the mysterious death is murder and begin to suspect one of the club’s members. Dale leaves for home on a business emergency, and as the lone single gal in the club full of couples, Jane is thrown into the company of Griffin O’Doherty, the handsome Irishman who stands to inherit the castle.

    Jane must prove her friend’s innocence by solving the crime. Which of the sweet-tempered Irish could be a callous killer?

    “I guess you’ll need to trust me.”

    Griff’s blue eyes danced in his handsome face. The moment was suspended in the air for a few heartbeats. Then he leaned over and put his lips on hers. She smelled his scent, like the salty sea and the smoldering peat and the burning malt of the Guinness. His lips tasted like Guinness, too.

    Had she fallen asleep into a dream? She murmured, “The Irish are certainly a friendly people.” She turned to stare out the window, aware that Dale might be waiting for his connecting flight from Boston to Denver.

    As if reading her mind, Griff asked. “Are you upset about Dale leaving? How serious are you two, anyway?”

    Jane lowered her seat back to recline and closed her eyes. “I thought he was going to ask me to marry him on this trip.” Were they even together anymore? They were likely on the outs.

    “There’s something you should know.” He was silent for a few seconds as he inspected the steering wheel. “I overheard Dale’s telephone conversation, while I was at the receptionist desk, while you were having breakfast. He was talking to someone called Polly.”


    “He was standing right next to me. I couldn’t help hearing it.” Griff turned the ignition switch and pulled out into the traffic. “Dale told Polly he loved her.”

    Her breath caught in her throat. “What else did he say?” She wrestled her seat back up, wide awake now.
