Halliday resumes the story of Maddie Springer, shoe designer and amateur sleuth, a week before her marriage to hunky Los Angeles police detective Jack Ramirez. When she finds her wedding planner facedown in frosting with a knife sticking out of her back, she knows that to leave on time for their honeymoon, she needs to help Jack solve the case. Her two best friends step in not only to help find the killer but also to serve as her new wedding planners. In between dress fittings and pedicures, Maddie and her crew visit everyone associated with the victim’s personal and professional life. Meanwhile, the guest list grows longer, and a tropical-themed ceremony coalesces, complete with giant tiki heads. As every lead turns into a dead end, Maddie’s big day seems doomed. Funny and appealing, Halliday’s hapless detective is a pleasure to watch as she somehow manages to solve another mystery. --Maria Hatton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

And I agree about the guest list. On the same page, it's mentioned the invitations have gone out--then she starts cutting the list. Certainly her own mother knows she can't afford 400 guests. Yes, I know this is a humorous novel, but the reader stops to wonder because the humor isn't grounded and has little motivation. Also, I couldn't believe the wedding was so soon--and she hasn't tasted the cake or chosen place cards or had the final fitting of her wedding dress? And certanly her friends know what she wants for her wedding, so when they completely change the bridesmaids' dresses--WHAT?
All in all, Ms. Halliday has stretched for the humor that seemed to flow so easily (and I know humor isn't easy)in the earlier books. This felt like the last in a series, as if the author is looking ahead, anxious to start something new.
