Secrets. It all begins with secrets. A long-held secret is about to implode with potentially catastrophic results.

It’s St. Paddy’s Day, and Shay O’Hanlon is finishing her shift at the Rabbit Hole, anticipating the grand reopening of her father’s bar, the Leprechaun. Two suspicious-looking strangers show up at the Hole demanding to speak to Eddy Quartermaine, the closest person Shay has to a mother. That visit sparks a firestorm spanning twenty-five years in a deadly mix of love gone wrong, stolen money, murder, and betrayal.

Will Shay and her sister Lisa pay the ultimate price for Eddy’s sins, or will Eddy confront her twenty-five year secret head-on before time runs out?

Blood Money Murder is the fifth installment in the Shay O’Hanlon Caper series.

My View:

Best in the series
Jessie Chandler is back again with another of her wonderful Shay O’Hanlon murder mysteries. This time Eddy’s past comes back to haunt her. Long held painful secrets are pushed into the open. What lengths will the villains go to in order to make Eddy obey their demands? When these secrets come to life nothing will ever be the same again. Are Eddy and Shay strong enough to weather this storm together or…

I LOVE the Shay O’Hanlon series and this one was no different. Actually it is different. Its better. I felt like this one was more intense, more dramatic, more personal and there was more at risk for the character’s. This book focused not just on the crime but also the relationships between Shay and Eddy and Shay and JT. All the others in this wacky cast are back but these three women have the starring roles. Ms Chandler lets us see much more of who Eddy and Shay are and what they have been through together. JT also played a much bigger role in this saga. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see more of her and her relationship with Shay. The ending was a complete surprise and totally perfect, you will love it! Thanks so much for this this memorable story Ms Chandler, I can not wait for another!
