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.

Another good one!

It's a great story and the narrator was excellent. I have one criticism - there are not enough chapter points. I believe there is one for every five chapters of the book. I can understand this because the actual chapters are short, but since I like to listen to these rather light murder mysteries at night and often fall asleep listening, it is very hard to get back to the last thing I heard.

Fortunately the ones narrated by the author have a break at the end of each book chapter which makes it much easier to get back to where I was listening when I fell asleep. Both he and Geoffrey Howard do a fine job of narrating.

I don't know if this would matter to anyone else, but I thought it was worth mentioning in case it does.
