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.

Enough already

I wanted to like this book. I really did. I liked the first two books, hated the third, and skipped the fourth, since I had gotten this one on a special deal. I really liked the characters in the first two books. This book, well, I have no idea why Anatoly is still taking the crap Sophie dishes out constantly; Sophie has turned into a self-righteous shrew, and Mary Ann is starting to seem like the only sane and smart one in the bunch. The joke about peach taffeta was so overused as to become painful. Sigh. I won't be coming back for more, even if another one is written. I'll stick to C.E. Murphy for my Gabra Zackman fix.

Thoroughly unlikable characters

What's meant to be smart, hip, funny and clever turns out to be flat, disagreeable and completey boring. What is this story's ultimate downfall isn't the mediocre reading, but the fact that it's simply not well-written. The main character, Sophie, in particular is hypocritical, judgmental and downright stupid, all the while the author tries to make the audience believe, Sophie, is smart, funny and likable. In fact most of the characters in the book are thoroughly unpleasant and the ones who aren't are woefully underdeveloped. I'm glad I bought this while it was on sale, but unfortunately, unlike a book, I can't give it away even to a charity. I'm stuck with the dud.

This was a laugh out loud listen

Loved the comments from the book written by Sophie, the main character, at the beginning of every chapter. Darn right belly laughs. Title fits well. I will never be able to look at a peach dress without cracking up. Best of the series, highly recommend.

Gotta Love Sophie!!! Four Star!

I'm a fan of Sophie, Anatoly, and the gang. There is not much Kyra can do with these characters that I probably would not like since I've gotten to know them throughout this series...that being said, while I thoroughly enjoyed the story...I found myself missing Anatoly. If you are a fan of the series, you will enjoy this story...but you might find yourself asking what's missing like I did...

I'm pleased with the set up for the next book, because after this one I'm looking forward to lots of interaction/conflicts between Sophie and Anatoly.

Would definitely recommend.

Kyra's Most Avid Las Vegas Fan

Once again Kyra has kept me in suspense and laughter until the very end. Once I start to listen to one of her books, I can't wait to hear it all and yet, I don't want it to end. It's like she can't write books fast enough for me to listen to.

I LOVED this book and I love the fact she brings back all the main characters each time giving her books continuity.

Please keep writing, Kyra. Thanks for using your talent so well.

Not worth your time or credit

I guess I did not expect much, but I at least hoped it would be a little fun. It was boring and not worth the time. Little plot and shallow characters.

The story continues and if you love Kyra

... then you will love this one as well. It is as if so many things get tied together. Will the story go on? or is this the last of the series? Kyra and Gabra as so good together as author and reader... they could write a book together, perhaps.

Great Fun and Mystery

I have yet to disocover a writer that combines murder and fun so deftly. I cannot wait for her next one. Best when narrated by Grabra.

More Katz to Love!

I really enjoy the Sophie Katz series and this one does not disappoint. Interesting storylines and a wonderful narrator. (Gabra Zackman) If you love this series, it's a must read!
