Wedding bells are heard in the Castro!
Despite the black cloud known as Proposition 8, many folks in the Castro are excited about upcoming weddings, including that of Aunt Ruth and her boyfriend Sam. The marriage madness cranks up when the owners of the Arts restaurant, where Ruth works part-time as a bartender, learn that local overbearing TV personality Rosa Rivera wants to sponsor a gay wedding contest there, with the winner to receive a televised ceremony in the restaurant, plus a free honeymoon. Ruth's nephew Tim, a waiter at the restaurant, is pressured by his partner Nick to consider entering the contest, while Tim's psychic dreams bring up some disturbing memories of his abusive mother, whom he hasn't seen in years.
Fifth in the "Beach Reading" series of well-written light mysteries, this one is especially interesting in that it provides considerable background information on Tim's childhood, and it delightfully illustrates the "extended family" of Tim and Ruth's friends, co-workers and neighbors, who band together to teach someone a rather amusing lesson. Don't miss it ... five stars out of five!
