The Bride Wore Black is a "who dunit" murder mystery with a nice balance of suspense, romance, great dialog, subtle humor and adventure. The author has successfully incorporated her skin diving and photography background, along with her creative mystery writing talent, to make this Cinnamon Green Mystery not only interesting but informative. The scuba diving experiences included in this story are wonderful and add additional excitement.
She excels in developing fascinating, believable characters. Her detailed descriptions of each character are so well done that I think I could pick them out in a crowd.
In this mystery, we learn early on that a "jilted lover" plans the perfect murder. The author then manages to supply several characters with motive and opportunity which keeps the reader guessing who will commit the crime.
Cinnamon Green is so likeable, that I didn't want this book to end. Happy to learn this will be a series. I do hope several of the characters return. I am especially anxious to see if her romance with Danny continues to develop and I look forward to more of the father/daughter storyline.

I really enjoyed this well-written, well-paced mystery. Cinnamon Greene moves back to her coastal California hometown, and encounters a murder mystery. The town is filled with well-drawn, realistic characters, and enough of them are suspects to keep you guessing until the end. I especially liked the relationship between Cinnamon and her father, whose business she helps run when she moves back to town. While you don't need to be a diver or a photographer to enjoy this story, those of you who are will especially appreciate the author's expertise in these two areas; no tiger shark attacks or giant clams snapping shut (unrealistic undersea "adventures" encountered in another book I recently read). Instead, Cardone includes realistic descriptions of California diving and the ebb and flow of a day on a dive boat. These short episodes, while not the focus of the book, really added to character development and verisimilitude for me. I'm looking forward to reading Cinnamon Greene's next adventure!

The Bride Wore Black has a variety of interesting characters with some snappy dialogue. It is a quick read with a murder mystery that keeps you guessing to the final pages. The main character, Cinnamon Greene is quite likable, with an independent spirit and a sardonic wit that comes across when she runs into some of the other female characters in the story, especially her first meeting with Cat. There are several murder suspects and at various times, it seems the evidence points to one of them, then another, then another, so you are kept guessing. As an avid scuba diver herself and former editor of Skin Diver Magazine, author Bonnie Cardone brings an authenticity to the scuba diving segments. I enjoyed reading the story and look forward to more from the author.

After being publically humiliated by her cheating husband, Cinnamon Greene decides to file for divorce and head back to her home town. So many things have changed and so many things are still the same. Her father's photography and camera shop has moved to a new location. Her dad hires her in her old position.

The biggest news in her small hometown is the wedding of Cat Callahan. She's a vile human being, who has chased after every woman's boyfriend in town. Her only redeeming factor are her captivating good looks. The only people who shed a tear when she dies on her wedding night are her parents.

Apparently, an allergic reaction to something in the wedding cake is what killed the bride. The bakers are suspected of purposely adding peanuts to the cake.

Cinnamon and her father know that the bakers wouldn't hurt anyone, even though the daughter has suddenly become very secretive. They go out of their way to find out who made the poisoned cake.

The book is a quick read. I read it in less than two days.

I liked this book a lot. The victim wasn't very well liked by a lot of people in the town, so her death was really no surprise. The actual killer surprised me, though. There are thoughts of the killer sprinkled throughout the book, but that led me to the wrong conclusion, which I know was the author's intent. All in all, I'm glad to see this is the first of a series, and I'm looking forward to more by Ms. Cardone.

Wonderful read. I generally don't read murder mysteries but this one was so riveting I could not put.it down until 3:35AM. The easy way Bonnie creates all the scenes in one's mind is superb. My next read is Bonnie's "Murder dives the Caribbean".
