On Dawnya’s sixteenth birthday she officially became a citizen of South Dalron and received word of her great uncle’s death. In his will he left Dawnya a riddle with the hope of leaving IronSprings behind and traveling the world as the Captain of the legendary ship, The Sea Dryad.
This is the true story of Grace O’Malley, or Granuaile, who ruled on land and sea in Connaught over 400 years ago. A Pirate Queen and Chieftain, she became a legend. We meet Grace as a young girl on Ireland’s west coast. Her father is a strong chieftain and loves the sea. Despite her parents’ objections, Grace becomes a better sailor than any of her father’s crew and so the adventures of the Pirate Queen begin. We set sail on her galley to Spain where war with England affects Grace and Ireland. We meet her husbands, Donal of the Battles and Richard in Iron, and are on board ship for her son’s birth and pirate attacks. After many escapades we sail to London for her famous meeting with Queen Elizabeth I. And we stay with her in her castle at Rock Fleet where she dies in 1603. This non-fiction account is a must for children who love Irish history! Similar to: Michael Collins: Most Wanted Man by Vincent McDonnell and Tom Crean: Ice Man by Michael Smith.

This collection includes the first three books of the Mollie McGhie sailing mystery series. Check out this fun cozy mystery series with plenty of goofy humor, an adorable cat, and a reluctant sailor turned amateur sleuth. You’ll laugh out loud from start to finish following Mollie McGhie’s sailing adventures. Spoiler alert: You’ll seriously be craving chocolate by the time you finish reading! Book 1 – Murder at the Marina What would you do if your hubby got you the worst anniversary present ever? When Mollie’s husband, Scooter, presents her with a dilapidated sailboat for her anniversary, she’s less than impressed. When she discovers a dead body on board, things get even worse. Poking her nose in where it doesn't belong, Mollie finds herself drawn into the tight-knit community living at Palm Tree Marina in Coconut Cove, a small town on the Florida coast. She uncovers a crime ring dealing in stolen marine equipment, eats way too many chocolate bars, adopts a cat, and learns far more about sailing than she ever wanted to. Book 2 – Bodies in the Boatyard What would you do if your hubby announced that he wanted to sell your house, do some serious downsizing, and move onto a rundown sailboat? Scooter’s latest hare-brained scheme to move on-board their boat isn’t exactly Mollie’s dream come true. When someone is murdered in the boatyard, it becomes a total nightmare. Mollie takes matters into her own hands and investigates the mysterious death along with her adorable feline companion, Mrs. Moto. While she searches for clues, she meets more of the quirky characters who live in Coconut Cove, learns about sea turtles, overcomes her fear of public speaking, and, of course, eats way too many sugary treats. Book 3 – Poisoned by the Pier What would you do if your hubby decided that the two of you should go on an extreme diet? Mollie thought she had enough problems to deal with when her husband threw out all of her chocolate and junk food. But when someone is poisoned during a cake baking competition, she’s thrust into another murder investigation. While she tries to identify the killer, Coconut Cove’s annual boating festival is in full swing. In between getting ready for her first sailing race and cheating on her diet, Mollie and her cat, Mrs. Moto, uncover clues, interview suspects, and do their best to avoid rutabagas.
