Publisher's Summary

After dumping her cheating fiancé and canceling the wedding, Mallory Shepard can't bear another disaster. So when the former bride-to-be unexpectedly inherits Thistle Park, a ramshackle mansion in her ex's hometown of Port Quincy, it's a problem she can't afford - literally. It’s full of stray cats, peeling wallpaper, and nosy neighbors, and Mallory is dying to sell it off - once she finally fixes up both the place and her messy life. 

Then it turns out that Thistle Park has its charms. But the honeymoon phase is abruptly cut short when an unwanted visitor is found dead on the front lawn. Enlisting the help of her sister Rachel, Mallory vows to unveil the killer before she herself becomes married to the suspect list.

Cozy with a bit of grit

Wow, the narrator is excellent. There are multiple story lines that keep the novel fresh and intriguing. The characters are varied and the main character's adjustment to the new town and it's inhabitants is well done and brings the reader along in a realistic way. Despite being a cozy the novel avoids a lot of cozy cliches which I appreciated. The main character has a brain and common sense.

escape reading

This cozy mystery is the first in a series, giving the foundation of the series' overall premise along with an interesting mystery story. The plot does get a bit convoluted and the resolution of multiple murders is not too realistic, but let's be honest: we don't really read cozies for their realism, do we? The main characters are very likable and the sub-genre of wedding-planning (while solving mysteries) added lots of fun and a bit of fluff and I'm sure this will continue; the wedding planning idea will also help set the stage for a core group of characters with room for unique sets of additional characters (and I would suppose, lots of murderers and murderees) in each individual story. This type of book is just perfect as a lighthearted mystery escape. I finished this book today and am already ordering the next one! The narrator for the Audible edition does a great job.
