About The Book
Professional wedding planner Mallory Shepard knows her job is challenging under any circumstances. But when the groom is your ex and someone invites murder, there may never be another tomorrow . . .
Mallory’s fine—really—handling the wedding arrangements for her ex, Keith. But his fiancée, Becca, has at the last minute decided to switch from a Japanese-cherry-blossom theme to a Gone with the Wind theme. She wants to honor her ailing grandmother, who owns an impressive collection of GWTW memorabilia—and who is fiercely at odds with the groom’s mother over the nuptial plans.
But among other complications, Becca gets into a fight with an old childhood rival over a replica Scarlett O’Hara wedding gown. She wins the dress—but soon becomes a murder suspect when the other woman is found dead in Becca’s swimming pool. And it’s up to Mallory to solve the mystery behind this unhappy occasion, before a different kind of civil war breaks out…
This is the story of Keith Pierce and Becca Cunningham and how they try to get married, sadly it seems that luck is not on their side, because there are not only crazy demands for the bride to be but a murder involved in the plannings, so the main question is not Who is the killer? but Will they get married?
In this adventure, Mallory (our brave main character) will not only have to arrange the marriage of her ex, but to discover the killer while treating with a bridezilla… I can only say, be prepared for some crazy situations and some very interesting characters.
This is the the fourth book of the series “A Wedding Planner Mystery” but you can read it as standalone; the characters are lovely and with some sweet pets, that will make every cozy mystery reader curl in the sofa and enjoy the read!
