In Seattle someone knifes wealthy Owen Winter shocking visiting wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid, who was soon to be his daughter-in-law when he married her mom. The San Juan Island, Washington cops assume the killer is a family member, business associate or friend with a grudge. --- Carnegie agrees with their assessment, but still ponders who the killer is even as she really knows no one except her best friend whose wedding she was working on and her mom. She rules both of them out as she could never love a killer. However, she considers Owen¿s obnoxious daughters or his former lover in between consoling her mom, working with a horde of unknown support players needed for a successful wedding, and pondering her future with boyfriend Aaron Gold (see DEATH TAKES A HONEYMOON). --- As usual the mystery tales a back seat to the zany cast especially the heroine whose diatribes are worth the price of admission even without some of the usual suspects performing in the fun story line. Carnegie competes with the police investigating the who-done-it with her as a stumbling bumpkin vs. their professionalism. That and her asides make for a terrific Puget Sound cozy. --- Harriet Klausner

Carnegie Kincaid has come to Puget Sound's San Juan Island both the help her best friend Lily with her wedding and to meet her mother's new fiancee's family. Owen Winter's daughters are not pleasant women and Owen himself seems a little odd, but all this is set aside after Carnegie finds the body of the Winter family's Houseman. The local police seem to believe that Carnegie has a hand in the crime so she is fighting for her life - again. This is an exciting, fastpaced and intelligent mystery, well worth reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
