Publisher's Summary

Someone old, someone cruel.

Debutante dropout Andrea Kendricks is beyond done with big hair, big gowns, and big egos - so being dragged to a high-society Texas wedding by her socialite mama, Cissy, gives her a bad case of déjà vu. As does running into her old prep-school bully, Olivia La Belle, the wedding planner, who's graduated to berating people for a living on her reality TV show. But for all the times Andy wished her dead, nobody deserves Olivia's fate: lying in a pool of blood, a cake knife in her throat - but did the angry baker do it?

Millicent Draper, the grandmotherly owner of Millie's Cakes, swears she's innocent, and Andy believes her. Unfortunately, the cops don't. Though Andy's fiancé, lawyer Brian Malone, is handling Millie's case, she's determined to spring Millie herself. But where to start? "La Belle from Hell" had enemies galore. Good thing Andy has a BFF who's a reporter - and a blue-blood mother who likes to pull strings.

Debutante Rebel

I love this Series! And the narrator-Oh my gosh! She has the perfect voice! I wish we were best friends! Seriously she is just perfect as Andy Kendricks. I really like Andy. She seems so real, and you really feel that she deeply cares about people. Her mom, Cissy, might be from another generation, but she really isn't as shallow as one might think. She cares for people in her own way. And even though Andy doesn't do things the way Cissy wants her to, she still loves her daughter and I suspect, is a little in awe of how Andy goes about living her life.

Lousy ending

These books will never win a Pulitzer- but this one ended on a big clunk.

Disappointed

I thought the story was good until Andrea broke her mother's heart by eloping. Very disappointed and the author should know she messed up.
