Publisher's Summary

Edgar Allan "Poe" Rutherford's life has never been better. He's just relocated to Maui and moved in with his best friend, Foxx. And he's dating the beautiful and sexy Detective, Alana Hu. But Alana's ex-boyfriend just came back to town. He's charming, good-looking, and wealthy, and worst of all, he's driving a serious wedge between Poe and Alana. To make matters more annoying, Poe's stuck attending a wedding he desperately doesn't want to go to.
Then a member of the wedding party is stabbed to death, and Poe gets dragged back into another murder investigation. This time, though, he's one of the prime suspects. Can Poe discover the identity of the killer before he gets arrested, and can he repair his broken relationship with Alana?
Wedding Day Dead is an intriguing murder mystery filled with an eccentric cast of characters and plot twists you'll never see coming. It's the sequel to Aloha Means Goodbye.

My Review
This book didn't really live up to the blurb, so as a result, this is a short review. I was expecting more excitement, more tension, but it never really happened for me. To start with, the characters didn't behave in a believable way, in particular the two sisters. I also found it to be quite strange behaviour on Alanas part, I couldn't understand why she would bother to conceal a past relationship from Poe. The murder was of the obvious victim, and I will say, the author did leave the reader enough clues to solve the mystery.

Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more had I read the first book, however, I don't think I will be following any more of Poes adventures.

R.C. Bray is an ward winning narrator, and quality shines through. I thought he nailed the characterisations without going overboard, a good, laid back story telling style. I enjoyed listening to him.

Really enjoyed it

Would you listen to Wedding Day Dead again? Why?

Yes. The story was great. The narrator was great.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely. There were lots of scenarios built up as to how the murder had occurred. Poe was a great character who easily keep me going as well.

What about R.C. Bray’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed the characterisations that occurred through the use of the narrator's voice.

Any additional comments?

Wedding Day Dead was a murder mystery set on the island of Maui. I liked the idea of Poe who had just moved to Maui to lived with his friend Foxx and to maintain his new relationship with Alana. Poe is frank and honest and has great instincts. He was fun to listen to and kept me engaged in the story. The whole book is from his point of view which is a refreshing change from other authors who have taken to splitting their books across characters. This was the second book of the series and I found it easy to follow despite not having read the first. I enjoyed the mystery of the book, having absolutely no idea about the killer until all was revealed. There were a few possibilities and the author built up a few scenarios well enough to keep me guessing. I definitely recommend this book to others.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
