Unholy Matrimony is a fun cozy mystery. The characters are likable, funny and human. The drama is good. Don't see to much of the police work. is a clean read.
This is the second book of the series. I felt it was fine as a stand alone story. It is entertaining cozy.
Lucille Mazzarella is determined her daughter Bernadette, gets married before she has her baby. She does not give up easy. She is a middle age mother. She does work part time for the church.
Frankie has been turning away from Lucille. Two of his relatives are living with them after their house burned down.
Flo is Lucille good friend. She is single and her son is Bernadette's baby's father.
Taylor is the groom. His parents are wealthy and want him married.
The suspense of the story was good. Really did not know who killed them till the reveal. I still have a couple of questions not answered but not that big of deal.
Some of the scenes you just have to laugh at. Especially the car chase to the airport. It makes for a fun light read.
I have not read Peg Cochran book before, but I would pick up another of her books now.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give honest review of it. Received the ebook through Net Galley.

Imagine, if you will, you are the mother of the bride, who happens to be 9 months pregnant and due any second. Not such a big day today, right? It is if you’re Lucille Mazzarella and still living in the past, and can’t quite accept the fact that this is pretty much a common thing. Bernadette, the pregnant bride, has thrown another wrench into the mix, the baby daddy is not even in the states but serving our country overseas. Taylor Grabowski may not be the best choice as the groom. But he is in the country and is willing to wed Bernadette, even knowing that he is not the baby daddy.
At the rehearsal dinner Lucille and Donna, the groom’s mother, have words that almost results in fisticuffs. The next day, Lucille finds Donna dead, in a pew in the front of the church. Of course, with Lucille being Lucille, she can’t seem to keep her nose out of the case, even though the new detective in town, Richie Sambucco, who happened to have lived and gone to school in town, and whom Lucille had a crush on as a teenager, tells her to mind her own business. Although Lucille is coming up with several suspects, she soon finds herself as the 1st suspect in Richie’s mind. Even though Donna’s husband is missing, and the groom seems to have gotten himself lost, how can anyone suspect Lucille?
I found this book very amusing, and it took me back to the days when we had neighbors like Lucille. I can almost see and hear her hanging out of a window screaming at the top of her lungs, and then Lucille wonders how everyone in the neighborhood knows her business.
