My Lady Judge (Book #104)

My Lady Judge (Cora Harrison, 2007) is a cozy mystery, likely the first in a series, about a woman judge in the Burren, an Irish region still free of English dominance and following Celtic traditional law in the early 16th century. I don't know the history well enough to know if a woman really could've played the role, but Harrison makes it seem rare but plausible.

Anyway, it's a very cozy mystery, as sweet as a story can possibly be and still involve the investigation of a rather grisly murder. It's not my usual taste, but worked well as a palate cleanser.
