My Review
3 out of 5 Stars

The premise of a murder mystery solved by a wedding planner is very interesting. I found the main character's quirky personality fun and engaging. Her unique way at looking at the crazy events around her lead to the believable resolution of the plot. The various twists and layers in the plot itself kept me reading and waiting to see how everything could possible be resolved. The conclusion definitely had my heart pounding.

Cons:

I found the book sometimes read like a long advertisement for mashedpotatoesandcrafts.com. This website was referenced--repeatedly. Also, I found it a little hard to get into the novel at first since it took a while to get a good grasp on what the main character's motivations were. The romance between the characters was a little flat sometimes, but sweet and cute at the same time.

Overall, I would recommend this book for those who like light-hearted mysteries and are into crafts. The ideas for different wedding planning items at the beginning of each chapter would be very enjoyable for those who are a lot more talented than me.

Enjoy!
