Weddings Can Be Murder

Weddings Can Be Murder

Sometimes you do have to wonder whether the synopsis writer has actually read the book.  This was billed in the mystery category, someone is murdering brides-to-be and the wedding planner is suspicious but she is brutally killed in front of her client and the next of the killers list – Katie Ray.  Enter PI Carl, ex-cop, brother still in the force, with a strong fear of commitment and promises where the ladies are concerned.

Sadly somewhere after the first couple of chapters the author forgot the original plot and it became much more about the sexual tension and complications between Katie [trying to live up to her deceased parents impossible strive], Carl [the womanising, hard headed, A-typical toughie PI], Les [still grieving best friend of Kate and fiancé of Kate’s late brother] and Joe [the cold footed groom-to-be of Kate].

Yes, there was some hilarity in the beginning but the story got so overturned that the murder was sub-sub-plotted and practically inconsequential to what the author wrote.  You could see how the behaviour of one character would be mis-read by the second character and through out it all you knew that the killer would not make an appearance until the last chapter, so the hero could save the day.

Much more of a chick-lit beach read than a mystery thriller.

      The kindle version had some interesting proofing errors, “the dick as the knob turned” wad my favourite.

    The mental picture that conjures up is wondrous indeed…
