�Christie Craig is a must-read.� �New York Times bestselling author Nina Bangs

Till Deaths Do You Part . . .

Katie Ray was about to marry a man she didn�t love�and who didn�t love her. Even losing her $8,000 engagement ring wasn�t enough of a sign to call things off. What did it take? Being locked in the closet with a sexy PI, and being witness to murder.

. . . Or They Bring You Together

Carl Hades hardly wanted to be shackled with another man�s soon-to-be-wife, especially when the gorgeous redhead stirred emotions he�d avoided for years. He�d been hired by an elite Houston wedding planner to investigate some missing brides. When those brides turned up dead, Carl saw where the whole situation was headed: just like Katie�s wedding ring and her ceremony, right down the toilet. Because, while Katie was suddenly and delightfully available, he had a feeling she was next in line to die. And before he could ask her to say �I do,� he had to know who would say �I did it.�

The Weddings can be murder is definitely a must read. I have enjoyed reading this book from start to finish.

The book came with my Nook. I really tried to stick with it but could not stand it any more, and gave it up after 50 pages. It is a shame as the plot seemed promising and the author has some talent to be entertaining . BUT... all this is spoiled by constant irrevelent references to sex and idiotic physical descriptions of the characters (we got it: the women are beautiful , the men have bedroom eyes and are extra muscular....). The principal characters end up as looking like floozies and the book is as romantic as a porn movie with all its faked and contrived feelings and actions. A waste of my time, there are plenty better books out there.

a little mystery, a little romance. It had a few mistakes in it- but those did not detract from the story at all. Quite enjoyable and 300 pages.

I read this book because it was free, but I still overpaid for it because it cost me two hours of my life. The plot was predictable and more on the lines of porn than romance, the characters were self-centered and whiners, and in the end I found myself rooting for the serial killer. Do not waste you time with this book.

I thought the author spent way too much time trying to stimulate sexual feelings in the reader. The plot had a lot of potential, but it never rose to it fully and I believe it was because of the constant sexuality. I didn't like the language or the sex. I immediately archived the book after reading it, and will not download any more by this author.

I know why the author gave the book away, she was being paid by the products she endorsed in the book. The first page mentioned the "Verizon Cell Phone" and the "Victoria Secret Catalog". This theme carried thru the book. I found nothing redeeming about it. There was no character development, an elementary plot, and the writing style lacked any finesse. Please BN start putting quality writing out for Free Friday's.

I have never written a review before, but I hated this book enough to finally write my first. Whoever compared this book to the Stephanie Plum series should be ashamed.

I don't normally review a book but in this case I'll just post an opinion rather than a review ... This book is labeled as a murder mystery but I would label it as a soap opera romance with a murder or two thrown in for good measure. The plot was thin and it has had more to do with sex than an actually mystery. It has taken well over 180 of the 302 pages to become something of a real book and not a "Days of our Lives" saga. I'm just glad the book was free and I didn't buy it.

I figured what the heck. I enjoy a romance novel. Why not the the free ones? This was one fun read. I was smiling and even laughed out loud several times. Good characters. Snappy dialogue. Good resolution. Not serious literature, but when choosing Romance, that's not what I'm looking for. I will be looking for more Christie Craig novels. I'll admit the dedication page gave me a chuckle. This woman has a sense of humor.

I got this one some time ago as a Free Friday. I started reading it on a 6 hour car trip. Four hours later in downtown Chicago traffic, i am telling my SO to pull over and jump in the backseat with me! Holy Toledo what a scorcher! i just love her style.

This was a great mix between romance and mystery. I couldn't wait to read the next page.

Cute, very light quick reading that held my attention. I read the 300+ pages in a matter of days. Parts were funny. I could have done without the explicit sexual descriptions. The feelings and motivation of the main characters were well developed. The plot was a bit trite and predictable, but I still enjoyed the read. The fact that it is a free e-book is a plus.

If you are looking for a laugh-out-loud, spit-your-iced-tea all over yourself, than you've found it! The characters are real people, who talk and act and respond like everyday people. No overly mushy, whiny women; which I LOVE! No sickly sweet, let's talk about our deeper feelings men; which I also LOVE! This book was a fun and entertaining read, couldn't put it down! The plot was simple, the characters funny and real, the plot easy to follow, and the few sex scenes weren't crude or disgunting, but real. A must have for those times when a good laugh is all you need!

I really enjoyed this book. This was my first Christie Craig book but won't be my last. I can't wait to read another one.

Well, I liked this book. I'd say it is a romance with a mystery thrown in. I laughed out loud quite a few times and the sex/sexual tension didn't bother me. I actually quite liked it and I'm old enough to be someone's grandmother. This is the first book I've read of hers and can't wait to read more.

Unfortunately, the plot line was nothing but sexual tension. Since I'm not into bodice-ripping novels, wasn't worth the time.

I'm really glad I didn't have to pay for this piece of trash. It's just porn with a little bit of murder plot tossed in on the side.

I really expected this to be a murder mystery story but was disappointed. The bulk of the story was about lust and sexual desires. I found myself skipping over passages and pages in search of content dealing with the murders. Very disappointing

This book was just average for me. I love myself a romance and it filled my romance needs but I wasn't too impressed but neither was I disappointed. I did laugh out loud once or twice but it wasn't as well written as I like. There were also some odd spacing issues, but I'm not sure if it was the ebook itself or my nook.

I can't believe this was a free book! I have not yet finished the story, but it is incredibly hard to put down. This book keeps you on your toes, although beware there are some scenes that are not suitable for young readers. As a mixture of chick flick and mystery, this book is definitely worth downloading and reading.

There is more soft porn than excitement or intrigue in this book. She is a talented writer, but this is not the style of writing I prefer. There is not nearly enough mystery in this mystery; you know how it's going to turn out way too soon.

Mildly entertaining, easy read. I could have done without the graphic sex portions - I know how that stuff works. Characters were rather tired (everyone is so good-looking, yet carries emotional baggage). I was hoping the author would build more suspense into the whodunit aspect of the book, but this didn't happen. The characters went from having no idea who was the perpetrator to catching the guy.

Not a prude but this was way too graphic for my taste. Harlequin Romance on porn.
Granny-Lil More than 1 year ago
I was expecting a nice read - they really should put some kind of warning in the books info - such as "If you don't like to read about Sex & Foul Language - Don't read this!" I couldn't finish this book.
