Dark and Twisted Secrets Emerge in the Wake of a Deadly Wedding
Daniel Richardson and his best friend, Hugh Ashley-Hunt, both rising British actors, are in love with the same woman, the free-spirited Tamsyn Burke. Daniel reluctantly steps aside when Tamsyn decides to marry Hugh, but right before the wedding ceremony, Tamsyn is murdered. Suspicion falls on the family, friends, and associates in attendance.
Motivated by both Hugh's grief and his own, Daniel joins forces with Tamsyn's younger sister, Carey, to find the killer. As he digs into Tamsyn's past, Daniel unearths secrets she was hiding, and begins to discover why someone wanted her silenced forever.

So many books today are gin milled. This is a good story with great characters written for the person looking for adult entertainment.
The murder mystery is my favorite genre and I particularly enjoy British murder mysteries, which is why I purchased this book. Overall I enjoyed it. It was well written and a good puzzle I didn't figure out immediately. I'm only giving it 3 stars because of one event near the end of the book that made no sense. I won't go into detail and thus ruin it for anyone but it nearly ruined the book for me. I don't mind a good twist but this twist didn't enhance the story, it detracted from it. I've thought about it quite a bit since finishing the book and I just can't reconcile what happens with everything else in the book. Very disappointing!
