Daphne Templeton's sister Piper is getting married--and their mother is getting carried away. She insists on hiring Sylvan Creek's top event planner, Abigail Sinclair, who proposes an Independence Day theme complete with Statue of Liberty-inspired bridesmaid dresses. With all the bickering among the families, Daphne's glad her only duty right now is pet-sitting for Abby's cat, Ms. Peebles. But there are some fireworks coming that aren't part of the ceremony. The Poconos will never be the same . . .
At a tension-filled dress fitting, the abrasive wedding planner is found strangled by a garter--a weapon both borrowed and blue. Now Daphne's services are required not just for organizing the big day, but for figuring out whether one of the in-laws is an outlaw . . .
Includes recipes for homemade pet treats! "Doggone charming from start to finish!"--Cleo Coyle, New York Times bestselling author on Death by Chocolate Lab
Here is what I thought
Though the main character was not my favorite person at the beginning of this series she has grown on me and this has become one of my favorite cozy series.
In this one Piper is getting married but the outrageous wedding planner gets murdered and things really start to fall apart for the wedding. Daphne wants to make sure Piper has a great day so she not only has to put up with the murder victim’s cat who has a way of getting into weird places and not being able to get out.
Everyone finds out it seems that Abigail was committing a lot of fraud with her wedding planning, double or even triple booking venues, etc., so lots of people could want her dead.
Also Jonathan has been working out of town and has news about a new job offer giving Daphne a bad vibe as they just started dating. So she is all thinking about their relationship while trying to salvage Piper’s wedding and figure out who killed the victim. Jonathan is not on the case because he is too close to things which is one of his problems since it seems like every time a murder happens he knows someone involved, mostly Daphne being in the thick of things. I didn’t think Jonathan was handling things very well throughout most of the book and it kind of made me upset a little.
I really love all the characters (now), I have wormed up to Daphne and now really like her, and also like her sister Piper, her best friend Moxie and all the rest.
I am so very proud of myself for figuring out who the murderer was before the MC did though this one was kind of tough and I thought I might not figure it out. It was a good mystery!
