Movies. Muffins. Murder.

Maggie Doyle moved to Ireland to escape her cheating ex and crumbling career in the San Francisco PD. When the most hated woman on Whisper Island is poisoned at her aunt’s Movie Theater Cafe, Maggie and her rock-hard muffins are hurled into the investigation.

With the help of her UFO-enthusiast  friend, a nun, and a feral puppy, Maggie is determined to clear her aunt’s name. Can she catch the murderer before they strike again? Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the cafe first?


About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Zara Keane grew up in Dublin, Ireland, and spent her summers in a small town similar to the fictional Smuggler’s Cove, the setting of her new cozy mystery series.

She currently lives in Switzerland with her family. When she’s not writing or wrestling small people, she drinks far too much coffee, and tries – with occasional success – to resist the siren call of Swiss chocolate.





Review Dial P for Poison

(Review 5 Stars):  Dial P for Poison was a charming mystery with a lovable heroine, a perfect mystery setting and recipes to die for.  Maggie has moved to live with her Aunt Noreen in Ireland after a breakup and take a job as a waitress at her Movie Theater Cafe.  Just when she starts getting in the groove of life on Whisper Island, she finds the body of a local woman after a Hitchcock movie night at the cafe.  Now, she must clear her aunt’s name for a crime she didn’t commit or her dreams of starting a new life may soon become a nightmare.

This is the first book in the Movie Club mysteries and I loved these characters and the community of Whisper Island.  Maggie was a delightful heroine and I enjoyed reading about the movie theater that was renovated into a cafe.  This mystery was fun, light-hearted and the perfect start to a brand new series.  I’m already a huge fan of the Movie Theater Cafe and I can’t wait to visit Maggie and Noreen again for a yummy scone and a little dose of murder in the future.
