This is the first book in the Regan Reilly Mystery series that I have read and I found it a fun and amusing caper set in Ireland. Laced is not a traditional whodunit mystery where a detective patiently sorts through a bevy of clues and suspects in order to solve crime; rather Jack and Regan are trying to catch two disguised and hidden jewel thieves whom they are already familiar with from their work in America. The point of view changes a lot in this novel which allows you to learn more about the thieves and other characters in the book. There is also a minor ghostly element in that the valuable, antique lace tablecloth that the thieves steal from Hennessy castle was made by May Reilly who supposedly haunts the castle because she was cheated and never paid for that tablecloth. Apparently this ghost is angered when this tablecloth is stolen. Short chapters, lots of action, and plenty of situational humor made this an enjoyable read and I'll certainly be looking for the next book in the series. ( )

It was a good book. In this book Reagan Reilly is on her honeymoon with her husband Jack in Ireland. The next morning after arriving in Ireland, someone steals a valuable lace tablecloth that was made many years previous to this date. Come to find out, the people that stole the tablecloth have been on the run from Jack (he's a cop) for the past year. Reagan and Jack decide to investigate this crime and hopefully find the two who stole the tablecloth and find the tablecloth in good condition. ( )
