Publisher's Summary

Police Chief David O'Callaghan and Chelsea Adams' wedding day is fast approaching. Unfortunately, at the last minute, David discovers that there is one small problem to be taken care of before he can walk down the aisle - divorce his first wife!

Lauren Carr takes fans of the Mac Faraday mysteries to the Big Apple in this nail-biting adventure. In Cancelled Vows, David, Mac, and Gnarly, too, rush to New York City to dissolve David's marriage to an old girlfriend - and he's got five days to get it done. When murder throws up a road block, it is up to David's best man, Mac Faraday, and Gnarly, K9-in-waiting, to sort through the clues to get David to the church in time!

Fun, light listen

Cancelled Vows is an interesting murder mystery complimented by delayed wedding vows. Cozy mysteries are really not to my taste. There are very strong elements of romance. I do not recommend it.

Cancelled Vows ~ Review

Cancelled Vows
A Mac Faraday Mystery #11
By Lauren Carr
Narrated by James C. Lewis

With six days until their wedding, David O'Callaghan and Chelsa Adams are finally getting their wedding license. At least that was the plan until a small bump threw off their plans. David is already married. And the worst part is he was and is completely in the dark about it.

But as they say, the wedding must go on. He just has to divorce his first wife before the marriage can take place. So it is off to the Big Apple for David, Mac Faraday, and Gnarly (a K-9 with military duty in his resume). With 5 days to get a divorce, the clock is against them.

But time is the least of their worries once they find David's wife - murder is. And David soon finds himself caught in a dangerous game with some who are no longer New York's finest and his life, along with that of research assistant Ali Harding, is on the line.

As the story progresses, one has to wonder will David make it back to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. And if he does can he heal the hurt that he has caused Chelsa? And more than one person is hiding a secret that could have a bearing on this case.

This is an action packed book that opens with the moment of peak action before delving into the back story that found David in an unexpected situation that makes him public enemy #1 in New York City and on the run. But with Mac and Gnarly on his side, the odds are in his favor that he may actually make it out of New York alive. And this is about to be a wedding not to be forgotten in Deep Creek Lake anytime soon. And with Gnarly around it is never boring.

The writing style is steady with no drag and the narration is well suited to the story. The narrator's voice is not grating and he does a fairly good Gnarly growl - not that my dogs felt threatened but one can believe that it is a growl.

At 10 hours and 14 minutes, this is an audiobook that is a good length perfect for long commutes or not even not so long (mine is normally 15 minutes) It is also a good listen for an easy on the eyes book. If you are looking for a mystery that will keep you in suspense give this one a try.

I was provided a free copy of this book by the author with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Exciting mixture of romance and suspense

Where does Cancelled Vows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is among the best of the mystery books I have listened to, including others by this author

What did you like best about this story?

It is exciting and fast paced. Even when you think things are being wrapped up, there are more details to disclose and the mysteries run very deep. Exceptionally well thought out.

Which character – as performed by James C. Lewis – was your favorite?

I admit I had to laugh out loud to the voice he gave Dallas as a Jersey accent.<br/>Initially my thoughts on Yvonne's voice was 20 year old attitude in 80 year old's voice.<br/>Dallas is wonderful throughout but I feel he did Mac's voice best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this several hours at a time.
