Chelsea, Aunt May, who was a formidable former NYC lawyer, and Teeny, who owns the diner, decide to tackle the investigation themselves and bring the killer to justice before someone else dies and also so they can prove cousin Maggie’s innocence! As a distraction from heartache, this incident works pretty well for Chelsea! Will they catch the killer? Will this open a whole new line of work for Chelsea as an amateur detective? Can the hottie Detective Wayne Hudson take her mind off her troubles?
This is the start of a new series that promises to be fun! You’ll meet some of the characters – and I’m sure you’ll be seeing others in books to come. There is just enough here to peak your interest, get you laughing, and prepare you for the next one!
Especially for Chelsea Rae Thomas who made it to the vows before her intended made a run for it. Life Lesson: Let your partner speak first.
Six months of self pity later, Chelsea is offered (or rather dragged into) a new life and opportunity by the irrepressible Miss May. Unfortunately, part of this opportunity involves another wedding, one Chelsea can not avoid. This time the groom does NOT walk away.
Miss May and her best friend Teeny are fascinating, in a horrible train wreck sort of way. You can not stop watching to see what they will get up to next or whose lives they will tamper with.
This book has all the elements cozy mystery readers adore quirky characters, nosy neighbors, an interfering amateur sleuth, handsome law man, and plenty of persons with motive and opportunity. In this case, the means was conveniently right at hand.
The authors of this series, yes, plural, have experience writing screenplays. That means they are well versed in show not tell. A cozy mystery, especially a character driven story, depends upon dialogue. In my opinion they have done an excellent job not only using dialogue to move the story forward but to give depth to characters and increase the readers` curiosity and experience.
I look forward to see where they take us next.

When a death unexpectedly occurs during rehearsals for the town wedding, Chelsea is floundering. (And empty-headed as soon as she sees the cliché of the handsome cop.) She's a mere observer as May tugs her along to investigate whether a murder occurred and if so, which of their friends and relatives could have committed the crime.
By the end however, Chelsea is starting to pick up, act with strength and she has gained a whole new reputation about town.
I'd be interested in seeing if Chelsea can maintain this progress and act with more self-determination in the next books. The mystery is nicely worked out and clues are provided mostly through conversation.
This is an unbiased review.
This book is no exception. I really enjoyed it even though you can work out who did the murder before the end.
