Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid and the entourage of oddball characters introduced in Veiled Threats, Donnelly's debut, infuse this brisk, buoyant cozy with quirky humor and nonstop adventure. Struggling to keep Made in Heaven, her houseboat-based business, afloat, Carnegie accepts the large sums offered by Microsoft millionaire Elizabeth Lamott to plan her wedding as well as her Halloween engagement party at the Seattle Aquarium. The festivities turn decidedly fishy, however, when one bridesmaid is found floating unconscious in the harbor and another turns up dead in an aquarium exhibit, lying next to an inebriated guest in a leprechaun costume. Ever curious Carnegie takes it upon herself to investigate the murder, though her efforts tend to hamper rather than help the local police. Meanwhile, she agrees to fill the dead bridesmaid's shoes and tries to juggle two romantic interests-an amorous computer genius so young he makes her feel like a "cradle-robbing Mrs. Robinson" and a boyfriend who makes her crazy wondering if she should break up or jump in bed with him. Like a slide down the rabbit hole, this compulsively readable mystery gains speed with every turn of the page, culminating in a chaotic conclusion that leaves enough threads dangling to keep readers coming back for more.

From the Inside Flap

It was a wedding no one would forget…

Luke Skywalker was juggling martini glasses. Albert Einstein was dirty-dancing with Monica Lewinsky. And Zorro was arguing with Death himself. For wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid, it was just another night on the job: a coed bachelor party thrown by one of Seattle's hippest couples--the bride-to-be a hard-charging Microsoft millionaire, the groom a Seattle Sentinel news editor.

But what started as the perfect evening for the young, handsome, and politically correct ended in disaster. One beautiful bridesmaid was dead, and another had thrown herself into Elliott Bay. Now Carnegie has more than a cutting-edge wedding to save. All around her, secret liaisons are unraveling, dangerous decisions are coming to light, and at least one criminal is lurking. With families to please, dresses to hem, and headlines to grab, Carnegie is discovering the dark side of love and marriage amid high and low Seattle society--and that while some passions may be forever, some are a motive for murder....


More About the Author

Hello! I'm a sea captain's daughter who grew up in Panama, Cape Cod, and points in between. I attended Macalester College in St. Paul, and earned a masters in library science at the University of Washington. And I've been cooking up stories ever since I could think.

Over the years I've occupied myself with several occupations. I've been an academic librarian in Walla Walla, an executive speechwriter in Seattle, and a rather improbable nanny in Singapore. Along the way I wrote science fiction stories that appeared in Asimov's, F&SF, and Universe - not to mention reprints in Portuguese and Lithuanian!

Then my best friend and I got married (though not to each other) within the same few months. The fun of planning our weddings, combined with an evening course in mystery writing, led to the creation of Carnegie Kincaid, bridal consultant and amateur sleuth. VEILED THREATS, published by Bantam Dell in January 2001, was soon followed down the aisle by DIED TO MATCH, MAY THE BEST MAN DIE, DEATH TAKES A HONEYMOON, and now my latest, YOU MAY NOW KILL THE BRIDE.

I was long-time Seattleite, just like Carnegie, but I've been living in the sunshine and sagebrush of Idaho with my husband and our two Welsh corgis. Now we're in the process of moving to Portland, Oregon - a new adventure! I'm a gratefully healthy breast cancer survivor, and I love to go hiking in the mountains and to throw parties - though none quite as fancy as the show-stoppers that Carnegie puts on.

Some of the events in my books are inspired by real wedding stories that I hear from readers. So if you have a triumph, a disaster, or just a funny tale to tell, please email me via my website at www.deborahdonnelly.org. Thanks for reading!

It was just such a fun, summer read.

I think that it would be very easy to resort to trite, old wedding disasters - but Donnelly manages to avoid this.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved the first book in this series, Veiled Threats, so even though I was predisposed to like this book, as well, it exceeded my expectations in every regard. The author has created a terrific protagonist in Carnegie Kincaid, a six foot tall redhead, who lives on a houseboat on Lake Union just north of downtown Seattle. From there she also operates her struggling business, Made In Heaven Wedding Designs. Surrounded by a cadre of unique and very talented friends of the sort needed by a wedding planner, Carnegie not only knows Seattle like the palm of her hand, she provides the reader with a constantly entertaining travelogue. Seattle, of course, is the home of lots of water, the Space Needle, and the fairly new Experience Music Project on the grounds of the Seattle Center. The EMP would be a wonderful place for anything at all, considering it was designed by the world-famous architect, Frank Gehry, noted for his uniquely marvelous swooping and swirling buildings. Seattle is also the home of Microsoft. And millionaires.
It is one of these latter persons, Elizabeth Lamott, a 29 year-old female, now retired from Microsoft, who is the current bride. With tons of money at her disposal, she can ask for anything; getting it is sometimes the problem. Her groom is Paul Wheeler, news editor for the Seattle Sentinel.
The opening scene of their coed bachelor party at the Seattle Aquarium is delicious--the guests are all in masquerade, which of course, interferes greatly with trying to solve the murder of a bridesmaid that takes place during the party.
Several of Carnegie's friends from the first book appear in this one as well. Aaron Gold, a reporter who has a nose for gossip as well as news, seems to always pop up just when he shouldn't.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Carnegie Kincaid is a wedding planner who lives on a house boat in Seattle. Her business needs an infusion of cash so she agrees to coordinate the engagement party of Paul Wheeler and Elizabeth Lamott at the Seattle Aquarium. Since the party is on Halloween night, everyone is in costume having a good time and making merry. Just as Carnegie is about to call the party a success, she stumbles across the murdered body of one of the bridesmaids.

Another bridesmaid claims that somebody threw her into Elliot Bay even though because of her track record nobody takes her seriously except Carnegie. As the Lamott/Wheeler wedding approaches another bridesmaid is murdered leading Carnegie to think that somebody is stalking them. She conducts her independent investigation in the hope that the wedding day will be killer free.

Carnegie is an off-beat heroine that readers will adore and her wannabe lover goes through all sorts of emotional gyrations just to keep up with her. DIED TO MATCH is a humorous amateur sleuth novel with so many serpentine twists and turns that the audience will feel like they are on a roller coaster. Deborah Donnelly is a fresh new voice in the mystery genre.

This is the second book in the Carnegie Kincaid wedding planner mystery series and Deborah Donnelly just keeps getting better. I have to confess that although Carnegie Kincaid (6' and a redhead) looks nothing like J Lo - I can still see Jennifer Lopez as the Wedding Planner in this characterization.
Deborah Donnelly does a GREAT job with introducing very off-beat weddings and parties in this series AS WELL AS the various problems that her wedding planner encounters. I think that it would be very easy to resort to trite, old wedding disasters - but Donnelly manages to avoid this.
Other reviewers have mentioned that the novels were too long or characters weren't developed enough. Good grief. The plots are DEVELOPED and the characters' personalities are being revealed a little at a time as this is a series. With each book, another layer of the characters' personaes are exposed.
Keep it up Donnelly - this series is great!

I picked up this book as a lark and after the first few pages I was hooked. Carnegie Kincaid is like a grown-up Nancy Drew. This book was funny, entertaining, and had me anxiously awaiting Donnelly's next release.

Died to Match is enjoyable and humorous. Carnegie Kincaid is an unlikely heroine who skips from one adventure to another. If you like mysteries without all of the sex and gore, you will enjoy this book.

Carnegie Kincaid is planning the wedding of two of her on again off again boyfriend's coworkers. At the moment it is off. At a party at the aquarium, a bridesmaid is murdered and the best man assaulted. Another bridesmaid is allegedly pushed off the pier. The murdered bridesmaid had just hired Carnegie to arrange her wedding to the owner of the newspaper and mayoral candidate, Talbot. Over everyone's protests Carnegie investigates.
I enjoyed this novel, but I was a little confused by the relationship between Aaron and Carnegie, and I just didn't feel much sympathy for any of the characters except Tommy. It was a good mystery though, and I read it through in one sitting.
