Publisher's Summary

Dark deeds in the Lighthouse Library threaten to send Lucy Richardson's soon-to-be-wed cousin Josie to an early "till death do us part".

Winter falls on North Carolina's Outer Banks as Lucy Richardson and her friends joyfully help her favorite cousin, Josie O'Malley, plan her wedding. The owner and head baker of Josie's Cozy Bakery and her fiance, Chef Jake Greenblatt, want a small, simple wedding.

But to their horror, Josie's imperious grandmother, Gloria, descends with the "Louisiana Mafia", a gaggle of aunts and cousins who intend to take control of the wedding plans. Gloria doesn't do small and simple, and cousin Mirabelle has her own ideas for Josie's wedding, something grand and lavish - and paid for by Josie's parents, of course - that will kick-start her fledgling event-planning business and get her work shown on the covers of wedding magazines. To make matters worse, Mirabelle focuses her full Southern charm on the prospective groom, and Jake doesn't seem entirely adverse to her attentions.

To smooth the waters, Lucy hosts a bridal shower at the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library. But it turns deadly when Mirabelle collapses - soon after eating the gluten-free treats Josie prepared specifically for her. Now, to save her favorite cousin from prison, Lucy will have to bring a crook to book.

Makes the Outer Banks come alive.

Love this series. Writer makes it real and the reader gives it life. Makes the Outer Banks a wanna-be-place and the characters become your friends and family. Can’t wait for next segment.

LONG AWAITED

I DO LOVE THE CHARACTERS IN THIS SERIES, AND LUCY MANAGES TO SOLVE NOT ONE BUT TWO CRIMES. NOW, CAN SHE SAVE JOSEY'S WEDDING, HER OWN RELATIONSHIP, AND HER BELOVED LIBRARY? THIS ONE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT.

The story is good but the characters are awful. They are either sickeningly sweet or self serving and self absorbed. Eva Gates is also very wordy. I found myself skipping ahead sometimes to move the story along.
