Publisher's Summary

School psychologist Skye Denison reluctantly agrees to act as maid of honor in her California cousin's over-the-top platinum-style wedding - and is also expected to assist the control-freak wedding planner. But when Skye discovers the planner dead, just one week before the big event, Skye is suddenly working double-duty. While overseeing every nuptial detail, she's also helping the police find out who hated the bridal consultant enough to kill her.

Can Skye get her cousin to the church on time - and save herself from a killer who may actually be on the guest list?

    "One of my favorite in the Scumble River Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder of a Wedding Belle to be better than the print version?

    I would not wish wedding planning on anyone especially for Skye's cousin Belle. As always Scumble River is full of great characters and I feel like I know them.

    "Not That Impressed"
    What was most disappointing about Denise Swanson???s story?

    Story was ok but the rudeness of everyone Skye talks to gets on my nerves.


    What about Christine Leto???s performance did you like?

    She was fine.

    Story
    "A Wedding of Nightmares"

    It wasn't terrible, it wasn't great. Pretty good for reading fluff. My problem with it were the characters and the resolution of the story. The main character, Skye, a school psychologist and also the police psychologist in a tiny town (not believable in itself), didn't seem to be able to think beyond high school ability in her relationships and problem solving. I didn't buy it for a woman who had traveled the world and was supposedly a respected adult. Also, the premise being that she ends up being the wedding planner for her Godzilla-bride cousin and allows herself and her relatives to be treated like garbage by the bride and groom and just about everyone else, made me ill. If the bride had received some sort of comeuppance from this woman at the end of the book, perhaps, but no, suddenly the bride turned out to be just fine and all was forgotten. Twaddle.

    Aside from that, this is the sort of book I could pick up and read in a hotel or on a trip and be OK with. It wasn't unreadable, simply unbelievable and unswallowable.

    "Another great hit"

    Skye Dennison is great in this book. There is so much going on but I never got lost. This is one of the best in the series.

    "Light Hearted Entertainment"

    An entertaining murder mystery not requiring a huge effort to enjoy. Light hearted plot that involves some zany characters

    "Miserable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know who would enjoy this book. Somebody may tolerate it but NOT enjoy it


    Has Murder of a Wedding Belle turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This book was my worst book purchase. It was very boring and didn't hold my interest. I stopped midway through as I couldn't invest any more time hoping the storyline would improve.

    "Nice Listen"

    I've always enjoyed this series. This book, though not the best in the bunch, was very enjoyable.

    The mystery was good. I didn't guess who did it until the very end. I'm not really able to relate to the door-mat mentality of our heroine when it comes to her family though.

    The narrator, as always, was excellent. She gives Ms. Swanson's sardonic humor the perfect emphasis.

    I enjoyed the book, and will continue with the series.
