Publisher's Summary

Meg Langslow's summer is not going swimmingly. In her small Virginia hometown, she's the maid of honor at the nuptials of three loved ones - each of whom has dumped the planning in her hands. One bride is set on including a Native American herbal purification ceremony while another wants live peacocks on the lawn. Only help from the town's drop-dead gorgeous hunk keeps Meg afloat in a sea of relatives and outrageous neighbors. 

But when an offensive newcomer, who hints at skeletons in the guests' closets, is found dead under suspicious circumstances, level-headed Meg's to-do list extends from flower arrangements and bridal registries to catching a killer - before the next event is her own funeral.

Why did I wait so long

Finding new authors in cozy mysteries can be difficult. Everyone's tastes are dramatically different as they should be. I hesitated to read Donna Andrews even with all the great reviews and awards due to the comments always on "Wacky" or "Kooky" characters. Generally those have no depth. I ran out of my regular and plunged into the painful depths of finding a new author for the summer with more than 3 titles. I have a rule about established series. I don't want to waste my time with 1 and done. This was a pleasant surprise for a first book. Characters of a small town, with some quirks but I have Kentucky relatives so it seemed normal. Best part I took me a bit to figure out for sure who did it and even at the end I thought maybe I was wrong Those are the best kind. I'm thrilled there are 25 in the series. If at book 3 I'm still intrigued. She is a keeper for an author.

I love funny cosy mysteries!

This book reminds me of the zany romantic comedies from the 30s & 40s. Bizarre situations, odd people, unlikely occurrences and hilarious! When you're in the mood for s good listen that is light and funny, this series is for you.

Where it all begins...

A romp to remember. Meg and her zany family and friends find weddings are a risky pastime.

Mother Made Me

Not sure how old the main character Meg was supposed to be, but no female over the age of ten would allow her mother to totally rule her world.

Of course, that's only when Meg wasn't allowing friends and other family members to run her raged. Why this talented author believed her readers would be entertained by Meg's martyred life, I can't imagine.

I forced myself to listen until the end, hoping Meg would grow a backbone but she never did. If Meg has been more interesting and assertive, this could have been a good book.

For the romance lover.

Dreadful and boring. I bought this because the reviews said it was 'Hilarious!' and 'I couldn't stop laughing!' but it is not funny. It was so boring and dreadful that I couldn't continue listening after the first hour. This is just not my cup of tea. For anyone not wanting to get stuck with romance-- run away!! This book seems to go on more about the lead character's love life and swooning over some man than the mystery you may crave. The narrator does a fine job.

Pathetic protagonist and predictable ending

I can not believe I made it through this book. This character was doormat of a person and a very predictable ending.

Tried to be funny but was just whingeing

The main character needs some serious psychological intervention. She was mean spirited and whingey. Awful. At one point she states that people are not interested in hearing about other people's weddings and we are subjected to inane complaining about 3 weddings. The murder mystery is a minor part of the story. The narrator is awful too i'm afraid only heightening the feeling of being trapped listening to someone listening to an endless tirade of complaints. Just towards the end there are finally some funny sections. The book also wavers between bigotry and political correctness... seemed like it was trying to please both sides of the fence.
