    One thought on “Too Close for Comfort”

    1. I enjoyed this until the ending. I thought it was a bit far fetched and I felt like I lost the plot completely.

    2. Clunky writing, stilted dialogue, cliched characterisation, unbelievable plotting. Apart from that it's awful.

    3. Niamh O’Connor’s new release Too Close for Comfort is the third in a series of books featuring DI Jo Birmingham. I have read the previous two books and enjoyed them and was looking forward to this one. Jo Birmingham is a brilliant character and she does stand out in my mind amongst other female leads in books. I think the reason for this is that she is so normal. She makes some serious mistakes, constantly has to juggle her work and personal life (not always succeeding) and is an ordinary wo [...]

    4. PROTAGONIST: Chief Superintendent Jo BirminghamSETTING: Dublin, IrelandSERIES: #3 of 3RATING: 3.0A reporter receiving a telephone tip alerts the police to the fact that a woman’s body is located in an area of the Dublin mountains known as “the Vanishing Triangle”. It is assumed that a serial killer is at work, which was the only reasonable explanation for the fact that six women disappeared in that area in a 6-year period. The original police investigation under the direction of Dan Mason [...]

    5. The author gets one added star from me right away for writing about Ireland; having a female lead in a position of responsibility; and addressing serious modern issues like house repossession, crooked solicitors and special needs children.Here's what I liked about the book: As I saw in earlier books about this main character, Jo Bermingham, she is bull-headed, disorganised in her home life with kids, and keen to keep working on a case. Therefore Jo is true to herself by continuing those characte [...]

    6. Loved reading more from Jo Birmingham - she's a character that will appeal to every female reader. Fighting to get to the top of her profession, juggling everything, she doesn't get it right every time but when she does, her intelligence shines. This novel has all the pace of Taken, with masses of intriguing plot strands. This is the blurb:The Vanishing TriangleA woman's body is found in Ireland's most notorious body dump zone, an area in the Dublin mountains where a number of women disappeared [...]

    7. Another brilliant highly addictive book by Niamh O'Connor and the third book in the Jo Birmingham series.Like the first two I love the character of Jo and her feisty strong character,her battle with home and work life and her ongoing drama with her husband Dan are my favourite parts.Full of many differing characters and with no real idea who the killer is draws you in to the very end.As always for me it's a slow start but once the story picks up pace I'm immersed in the plot.The only reason I co [...]

    8. I'm sorry but did someone rip out the last chapter? Surely this can't be the end. So disappointed. I was so engrossed, then It's like it ended in the middle of a chapter. There's a month of reading in bed I'll never get back!

    9. Like all of Niamh O'Connor's books about Jo Birmingham the detective in Dublin this was a very good read. Great characters and interesting story tied in with the girls that went missing in Leinster in the 1990's. Well worth a read.

    10. Couldnt even finish this book - too many characters and just a boring plot, couldnt care less about how it ended. Disappointed to say the least.
