Then, The first chapter has Josie's intended, Dr. (Veterinarian,) Ted Scottsmeyer facing danger and his mother, Lenore comes to his aid packing a pistol. I would tell you more but honestly this scene has to be experienced first hand to get the full impact, and it does carry a wallop.
Lenore finds herself behind bars on a murder charge and Josie has to spring her before her wedding day in less than a month.
This novel takes place around Halloween and Thanksgiving. I laughed, weeped, and sat back remembering my own wedding. The murder mystery was strong and clever as well. I did find myself more wrapped up in the romance of the day though.
All in all a fine book. I look forward to the future of Josie, Amelia, and Ted.
I have two more of Josie's adventures on the shelf--I think it's time for a catch-up binge.
