Publisher's Summary

While her rehab counselor’s advice replays in her mind, Ansley Boone takes on the role of dutiful bridesmaid in her little sister’s wedding at an isolated resort in the middle of hill country, a place where cell reception is virtually nonexistent and everyone else there seems a stranger primed to spring. 

Tensions are already high between the Boones and their withdrawal-suffering eldest, who has since become the family embarrassment, but when the wedding reception takes a vicious turn, Ansley and her sister must work together to fight for survival and escape the resort, before the groom’s cannibalistic family adds them to the post-wedding menu.

Exciting and heartfelt alongside the gore

I absolutely loved this book! I loved the writing and though some people said it starts slow, I really enjoyed how the author took time to set up the story and give you a relationship to the characters before all of the gore commenced. This was my first "extreme horror" book and I have to say, as horrific as it was it was tolerable and a really fun ride!

Get a prenup, sis

Another wild ride from Kenzie Jennings . A wedding at a resort where something nefarious is going on. I love how this story starts out as an atmospheric slow burn, but ends up going full throttle until the jaw dropping ending. This book begs the question as to why there isn't more wedding related horror!

A gory, imaginative tale

What a unique story! Lots of funny parts even amidst the carnage. Horror comedy is tough to get right, but the author has done it. Excellent narration.

Served Raw

With a sort of "Ready or Not" vibe, this cannibalistic run-down is a well paced, original story with superb little twist. Kenzie Jennings is a great writer!

RECEPTION

A young woman who has had issues chooses to enter rehab to avoid jail time. When her sister has a wedding planned she is released from rehab to attend her younger sisters special day. The reception does not go as planned. A fantastic first novel from author Kenzie Jennings with very professional production from Fireside Horror.
