Publisher's Summary

The seaside town of Fethering, home to Carole Seddon and her friend Jude, is a place rife with foul play, as evidenced in this sixth mystery in the series. Carole is thrilled with the coming wedding of her once-estranged son, Stephen. She finds it odd, though, that the parents of the bride have no interest in arranging the wedding, and seem terrified at the prospect of publicizing it. Things turn deadly intriguing when the father of the bride disappears at the engagement party, only to be found brutally murdered the following morn. Now, Carole elicits Jude's help in sifting through the guest list, including Gaby's nefarious brother and her uncle, a justice of the peace, before the festivities become completely funereal.

The best yet!!!

This is quite possibly the best book in the series. Carole and Jude are at their inquisitive best as they get into everyone's business. The family dynamics between Carole's family and Gabby's family are great. Most importantly the story is great. There is also more action in this book than in the other books. I have finally gotten used to a male narrator although I think a woman would be a better choice. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries.

Not my cup of tea.

The writing is excellent. The plot is transparent and holds little surprise. But, the most disappointing of all, are the characters. I'm not sure what the purpose of Carol and her friend is in the story. They are hardly sleuths, and Carol is a pain one's anatomy. Not likable, and jealous and somewhat uptight, she has moments of insight into her own small mindedness, but is definitely not someone this reader would want to spend more than a handful of hours with at a reception, and then avoid later at nearly all costs.
