An Irish Hostage
Wedding. The twelfth Bess Crawford mystery by the mother and son writing team called Charles Todd is a novel titled, An Irish Hostage. The First World War has ended, and Bess faces an uncertain future. She has agreed to attend the wedding of fellow nurse Eileen Flynn that’s taking place in the small Irish village where Eileen grew up. There’s peril in Ireland in this time after the Easter Rising in 1916 for the English, and for all who fought with the English in the war. The complex plot and ongoing suspense will delight all fans of this series, as well as any reader who enjoys mystery novels. It’s no spoiler to report that Bess is no closer to making decisions about her future at the end of this novel than she was at the beginning. Will there be big changes for Bess in the next installment? Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase An Irish Hostage from amazon.com.
