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.

The narration of this book is off character from the previous books, which I loved. Gabra Zackman was excellent as Sophie Katz in the first three books but lost the spunk on this one.
The story was still good, the reading should have a retake, as a couple voices and tone are off.
Kyra Davis and her Sophie Katz character didn't let me down with this installment, because once again I was laughing out loud and guessing "who did it" right up 'til the end. I've been a fan of this series since the beginning and this book has only made me long for the next installment. She's really developing the depth of the characters as she goes along. I would definitely recommend this book if you're a fan of romance with a light mystery. I just LOVED it!
If you like the other Kyra Davis books, than you will LOVE this one! All the witty characters are back for another mystery, I laughed out loud several times. I could not stop listening to it. I have to say the hardest thing is that there is a cliff hanger at the end and I can not wait till the next book comes out!!!
I am a great fan of audio books. Audible is definitely one of my best friends. So many books, so little time!
Gabra Zackman is perfect for the narration to the Sophie Katz books. I choose my recording as much for the narrator as for the author. I have read all the Sophie books, and this is my least favorite. It's not bad, but it goes on and drags a little in the last quarter. Also, I thought there was a little gratuitous sex that wasn't really that interesting nor did it contribute much to the plot. The plot itself was good, but it took longer than necessary to develop ad solve. I'm not sorry I invested the time in it, but don't think I would recommend this very strongly. And not nearly as highly as the other Sophie books.
Loved it! Sophie with a new twist. Gabra Zackman is wonderful as always! Congrats Kyra on another fun read!
I like this series alot...Its fun and entertaining. I really like Deenas character- shes bold and Brash and we should all be more like her!! LOL!
I just can't trudge through this book I've tried 3X
It's just not the book for me.
I think she tried to be edgy and it came through as cheesy. No suspense at all.
Mail voices are wimpy, female voices sound like they have colds.
This was a waste of time. I should have dumped it but I stuck it out.

This is another great book in a fun series - don't try to read them out of order - it will just confuse you. But DO read them if you like funky, fun mysteries with great characters.
This is the first book of this series that I have read and it was so well done that I didn't realize it was the 5th book in the series. The past was mentioned, but you didn't need to have read the other books to understand everything and follow along or to totally fall in love with the series. The characters are quirky, entertaining, and well developed. The story kept you guessing and switching between potentially guilty parties. The narrator was nice to listen to and read at a good pace. When I finished this one, it made me want to reach for the next! Overall, it was a really pleasant and fast listen!
