Review:How to Murder a Millionaire (Movie Club Mysteries, Book 3): An Irish Cozy Mystery by Zara Keane

how to murder a millionaire cover

Armed with her newly issued private investigator's license, Maggie Doyle is on the case…of a sheep that went missing twenty-two years ago. When she trips over a dead body on the first day of the investigation, Maggie realizes there’s more to this cold case than a fight over lamb chops.

An invitation to spend the weekend with her grandmother’s oldest friend and her family, the super wealthy Huffingtons, gives Maggie the perfect excuse to sniff out the killer. After the family patriarch is electrocuted in the swimming pool, Maggie finds herself embroiled in yet another murder inquiry. With the body count rising, can Maggie catch the killer before they strike again?

What I thought about How to Murder a Millionaire

A crotchless mankini, puffy chicken balls, and a missing sheep investigation.  Maggie Doyle has her hands full again in How to Murder a Millionaire.

While investigating a twenty two year old case of a missing sheep, Maggie finds another dead body and so begins a mystery that will end with another murder. When the Huffingtons of chicken ball fame come to visit, it's more of a case of who didn't kill the family patriarch.

I really like this series. There's a nice dose of humor in all of the stories, and the growing romance between Maggie and Sargeant Liam Reynolds is so adorable. (Although I'm hoping they get to the good stuff soon!)   Maggie is a likable character too as she stands on the threshold of starting a new relationship while still grieving the ending of her marriage.  She loves her job on Whisper Island.

Lenny is a terrific sidekick for Maggie, and I'm glad to see he's worming his way into working for her because they are terrific sleuths together. And Zara Keane does the awesome job as always of making the setting as interesting as the characters.
