The Pig Did It

How can you pass up a book with a title like that? And the best part, it's the first in a trilogy. I received my copy as an EPub from Netgalley, and I read it on my Nook. I was supposed to read and review it for St. Patrick's Day, but life got in the way. The book is so Irish, you don't need St. Patrick's Day to get the mood. The characters are so wonderful that you'll want to go down to the pub with them. Aaron has come to Ireland to contemplate is lost love, Aunt Kitty rewrites classic novels for a living, and the pig provides humour throughout. The Irish magical realism of old tales sort of reminded me of Sarah Addison Allen's NC mountain stories. Now I must go find copies of the next two books so I can find out what happens to the pig.
