Publisher's Summary

The devil is in the details....

Cletus Byron Winston wishes to marry Jennifer Anne Donner-Sylvester (aka The Banana Cake Queen) posthaste! He’s spent the last year wanting nothing more than for the celebrations to be brief, libations flowing, and BYOB (bring your own blueberries). His future mother-in-law has other plans - plans his intended has been willing to indulge, much to Cletus’s chagrin. Therefore, so must he. To a point. But truth be told, he wouldn’t mind if the meddlesome matriarch disappeared, at least until the nuptials are over. 

On the night of Cletus and Jenn’s long-awaited engagement party, just when the surly schemer is of a mind to take matters into his own hands, a shocking event upends everyone’s best-laid plans and sends the small hamlet of Green Valley into complete disarray. The final months leading up to Cletus and Jenn’s matrimonial bliss are plagued with chaos and uncertainty. Will Cletus and Jenn finally make it to the altar? Or will murder and mayhem derail their happily-ever-after? And most importantly, who done it? 

Marriage and Murder is the second book in the cozy mystery series Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries. It is best enjoyed after the third book in the Winston Brothers series, Beard Science (which can be enjoyed as a stand-alone), and the first book in Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries series, Engagement and Espionage.

Do I even have the words?

Do I even have the words to express how much I loved this installment of Jen and Cletus’ story? I didn’t want it to end. I absolutely couldn’t get enough.
1) the humor is wonderful
2) these characters, as crazy as they are, feel like family
3) Reid mixes so much wisdom with the humor.
4) the mystery was pretty great, too.
5) OMG, she took the “grown up scenes” to a whole new level. 🌶

Good plot for the story. It kept me guessing.

This story seemed a bit wordy @ times and Jen was a bit too naive for her age.
The story line was excellent. Looking forward to the next one. What happens with Jason and Diane? Diane is at the wedding , where is Jason? What happened with him?

Getting better and better

I didn't think Jennifer and Cletus's story could get better but I was mistaken. There's plenty of steamy love ❤ as well as intrigue which kept me enthralled right down to the epilogue.
All the Winston family and townsfolk play their part to make this one fabulous story.
Highly recommend especially for the great job of the narrators ❤❤ Chris has a wonderful gruff voice that sends shivers down my spine!!💕💕💕💕💕

Great listen

The perfect mix of love story, mystery, heartfelt emotion and humour. The voice actors are incredible and bring the story to life vividly. Makes me want to put a visit to Tennessee on my to do list! Thoroughly enjoyed it.
