Discussion Questions for your Book Club

I hope your book club will read Secrets and Shamrocks. Here are some questions to consider:

  1. Is it realistic to think that everyone at Shepherd’s Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast has secrets? Which secrets, when revealed, are the most surprising?
  2. People confide in Jordan, even almost-strangers. What are her qualities that make people feel that they can tell her their secrets?
  3. Prescription medications play a role in the story on several levels. How does Alex’s situation parallel the others that involve meds?
  4. Do you think Magdala’s cottage is the same cottage that Ian wrote about in the legend of the man who hid the priest? Why or why not?
  5. What does Paul Broussard’s appearance add to the story? What does the scene in the Dublin restaurant reveal about Jordan?
  6. What do the clips of Irish history add to the story?
  7. Does Grace’s letter, after Jordan and Alex have returned to Savannah, provide a satisfying ending? What is left unresolved?
