Residual Danger Angel Crawford is getting married! Justus Morgan, her pastor, asked and she said yes. She’s not certain if she’s experiencing feelings for Maxim West, the U.S. Marshall who is also her PI instructor, or if she’s still pondering whether or not her baby daddy/fiancé’ Gabriel Hwang is still amongst the living. Either way, Angel is already carrying a load as she’s burying relatives, mending fences, planning a wedding, and chasing bad guys. Can she really handle anything else? CAN’T KEEP A BAD BRIDE DOWN is the third book in the Angel Crawford series. Unfortunately for readers, as well as the literary world, Miranda Parker passed away, so a lot of unanswered questions will be just that, unanswered. While I’m a FAN of the series, I was a little disappointed in this book. As always, Parker’s descriptions of Georgia are on point. You feel as if Georgia is actually a character. This book, however, felt incomplete. I don’t know if this book was actually completed prior to her passing, but the story is jumbled with parts of the story that just make no sense. I would like to thank Miranda Parker for creating such an exciting and original African American character, and I pray that she is resting in peace. Reviewed by: Crystal 3.5
