Publisher's Summary

The peach taffeta Bridesmaid dress- that should be Sophie’s problem. Not attempted murder.

Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin. But then Dena—best friend, bridesmaid, and all-around vixen—is mysteriously shot just after the announcement. Leave this to the authorities? No way. Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

Problem is, the number of suspects is off the charts—from jaded lovers to anti-free-lovers to just plain old haters. Dena’s made plenty of enemies thanks to her popular sex shop—and, yes, she’s no saint—but really, who deserves to be shot?

With an überlogical almost boyfriend condemning her vigilante quest, and a wedding planner going vicariously bridezilla over the dream princess wedding, Sophie’s barely thinking straight. But if she can keep her cool (and avoid all errant taffeta), she just might nab her man and save the (wedding) day.

Big if.

    "horrible story teller"

    The overall story was good. But the reader's voices were painful to listen to. She sounded corny and unbelievable.

    "good summer read"
    If you could sum up Vows, Vendettas, and a Little Black Dress in three words, what would they be?

    Great light mystery read. Romance is not over the top and it was a great listen driving to and from work. My work reading is so heavy that I need light-weight pleasure reading that is still intelligent and mature and this hit the spot.

    I enjoyed this book because I like the entire series. I would not recommend reading this book without reading the earlier books. I am looking forward to the next one!

    "Fantastic Series"

    I always look forward to the Sophie Katz series. These are such fun stories! Great characters, all with different personalities that make you love them, or want to strangle them. Hilarious situations when they come together, and often clash with each other. I love everything about these books. I can't wait til the next one comes out!

    "Loved It"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved this plot. It had Kyra Davis' usual wit that had me laughing out loud. Gabra Zackman does such a good job with the characters. When I reread Kyra Davis' first two books in the series I instinctively heard Gabra's voice in my head. I just couldn't stand the cliff-hanger. The other books in the series had a definate ending, but this one left me unsatisfied. Now I have to wait till next year for the results and conclusions. But, I'm hooked on Kyra Davis, so I will wait impatiently for it. If you haven't read the other books in her series you should read those first just to get some background on the characters but the plot does stand alone from the other books.

    "Not what I expected"

    I decided to read this book having not read any of the other books in the series and not really knowing what to expect. Parts of the writing of this book disappointed me, some bored me, while others made me laugh out loud. The gay friend, Marcus, I found to be hilarious, sort of the comic relief. I was turned off by the mix of this story being a mystery and romance novel. The main character reminded me of a grown-up Nancy Drew but the relationship with the Ned Nickerson character was not purely innocent (the way I feel it should be). I just didn't expect to be reading about the strong female protagonist's sex life.
