The Shamrock Case is about the most gentle, easy going mystery that I've ever read. Cozy is a great word to describe it. To me, this book felt less like an actual mystery and more like a family history discovery trip to Ireland. Amelia takes along her hunky, handsome (can do no wrong, knight in shining armor, rescuer of small children) partner, Rick. It's all set up like the perfect vacation.
For me, this book was sweet and clean. There was nothing to get worked up about at all. I enjoyed reading it but was never invested emotionally. I was missing that depth and richness that pull me in as a reader and make me a part of the book. The story was told in a very straight forward manner. I wanted to be wrapped up in growing tension and swirling feelings but I didn't get that. However, this was a good book. It was a simple story, easy to read and had a happily ever after ending. And did I mention it was clean? I really appreciated that.
This is the second book in the Amelia Moore Detective Series. I haven't read the first book but I didn't feel like was missing too much picking up the second book to begin with. The main events from the first books were mentioned in this book and I felt up to speed.
