You will get all of these in Kate Sweeney's book Crosse My Heart. 2)If you are like me and read numerous books by her including her Kate Ryan series, you maybe a little disappointed. So, I like the book, really I did. Sydney Crosse is a telecommunications mogul. She has loads of cash, a playgirl status, and instincts like no other. Where I got hung up was that I felt like I was reading a book I had already read.

AbeBooks In the sequel to Residual Moon, Grayson MacCarthaigh stays in Ireland, struggling with her destiny as the true descendant chosen to protect th. . As Grayson comes to grips with all this, someone or something is doing his or her best to see that she fails in her role of protector of the ancients.

Two young women are found dead on the Chicago lakefront in as many weeks, each murdered in the same fashion. Detective Sergeant Grayson MacCarthaigh is at her wit's end trying to solve the grisly mess before the murderer claims another victim.

Her only common thread is Dr. Neala Rourke, the curator of the famous National Museum in Dublin, Ireland. She is in Chicago with her archaeological exhibit at the Field Museum, which suspiciously coincides with the two murders.

With a strange and eerie turn of events, things start unraveling. Grayson now is compelled to return to her birthplace and follows Dr. Rourke back to Ireland where ancient Celtic beliefs and mythology are thrown into the mix, turning the detective's logical world upside-down.

However, one fact remains for the determined Detective MacCarthaigh: Someone killed those two women and whether real or mythological - he or she will kill again.

This was so different from Kate Sweeney other series which I enjoy. It kept me enthralled.

Det. Sgt. Grayson MacCarthaigh is heading an investigation into the murders of two young women. Chicago has its share of murders, but these are different and appear to be the beginning of something serial. But it's weird, vicious, and strange. Grayson is in search of anything or anyone who can assist her with how the women were killed and it's driving her crazy. Her main suspect is Dr. Neala Rourke a visiting curator from the National Museum in Dublin, Ireland. She is in Chicago with an archeological exhibit, but must return. So Grayson follows her to Ireland where Celtic mythology is thrown at her and she doesn't understand what she can't see, touch, or hear.

Were the women sacrifices to the gods? Neala and Grayson are entrenched in the mystery as well with each other.

I love reading Kate Sweeney's books! Interesting and intriguing.
This book will keep you up late & get you up early in the morning to be able to read more before work.

I am a huge Kate Sweeney fan. Her romances are great, but this book blew me away. I'm already reading the second book in the series. I really can't get enough of her stories.

Druid mysteries and Irish folklore permeate Residual Moon and weave their own type of magic.

Detective Sergeant Grayson MacCarthaigh (pronounced McCarthy) is still trying to recover from a personal tragedy that occurred two years ago and burying herself in her work seems to help. At the moment she has a case involving a serial killer that uses ritualistic aspects in his murders. The situation becomes increasingly unsettling to Gray as she realizes that her family is somehow involved in what is happening. A chance meeting with Dr. Neala Rourke, curator of the National Museum in Dublin, and the mysterious Phelan Tynan, who have accompanied a mysterious ancient stone for a tour of the US, indicates that the crime is farther reaching than had been thought. Then Maeve, Gray's mother, reveals that she is a friend of Neala Rourke and that they all belong to an ancient society pledged to save the world from great evil, with Gray being the most important part of the plan. Though Gray has serious doubts about all of this, she allows her mother and Neala to take her to Ireland, where she is swept up in Druid beliefs, ancient stories of gods and goddesses and prophecies of what is to come. Gray begins to realize that the paths in her life, the intuitions she's always felt, the tragedies she's endured and the visions she's begun to experience are coming together for one purpose. Her only question is if she'll have the strength to overcome the force that is coming against her and to claim her true heritage.

Anyone who likes books that are steeped in ancient history and beliefs, especially those of Ireland, will like this book. It combines a compelling story with terrific characters to create a really enjoyable story to read. Kate Sweeney has produced a cast of extremely strong and well defined individuals. Each one contributes to the story in important ways creating a story that is rich in content and form. The reader can feel the grief that grips Grayson MacCarthaigh's soul and the evil of Phelan Tynan rolls off of the pages. Even minor characters are given a development that isn't the usual in many books. Sweeney's knowledge of Irish history and culture give the story depth. It's also a tight book. There are no wasted scenes. This is the type of book that draws you from page to page and then you're sorry when it's finished.

First novel I've read by Kate Sweeney.

Centered around a Chicago Detective and two murdered women this story draws you into a world of Wicca and Druids and Irish history.

And boy does it ever, the author must really know her Irish history to be able to present it in such a manner.

The characters are fun, the novel is well written, the writing is tight, every scene moves the story along in some way. The mystery it builds moves along at a fast pace, in the middle section of the book I felt like I could not read fast enough to figure out what was going on. Unfortunately that pace slowed down towards the end because the suspense could not be held to the last page. Once I had figured out what was going on I kind of lost interest. I'm not sure what went on there, what should have been the high point of the book, plot wise, felt flat because the outcome was clear. I have no idea how that could have been avoided.

Another good thing about this book: Almost no romance. ;)

I'm really torn about how to rate the book though. The middle part was great, but in the end the feeling that it ran out of steam prevails. So it's close to 4 stars, but not quite. Despite the fact that it was a really good read, it's a book that doesn't leave a lasting impression on me, I don't have the feeling that I will want to re-read it somewhere down the road, but I sure had a good time reading it once.

Detective Sergeant Grayson MacCarthaigh is in the middle of trying to solve what looks like a serial killing. Two women have been found dead, both murdered in the same way. Dr Neala Rourke, a prominent archaeologist and museum curator appears to be the only suspect. As the case develops, Grayson finds herself drawn to Neala. She doesn't want to get close to anyone though as she is still suffering a personal loss.
Maeve, Grayson's mother, knows Neala and events lead up to the three of them going to Ireland, where Grayson finds herself being part of a bigger mystery to be solved.
Kate Sweeney is a brilliant story teller. This book is full of history, with Kate's usual touch of humor that is........ well, just Kate.
I read this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. There is a sequel planned called Liars Moon. It can't be published quick enough for me.

Kamick
This is a modern urban fantasy centering around Grayson MacCarthaigh - who stumbles into her personal adventure and discovers that fate has more in store for her than being a Detective in Chicago. She needs to go back to Ireland and there all the old Irish lore hits her and the reader in a very enjoyable way. Bad guys, good guys, interesting twist and turns abound -- and "guys" is to be taken very loosely because not everyone is who or what it seems.
