Overview

The hilarious Lucille Mazzarella is back and planning a wedding. But even the worst Bridezilla can't create the wedding drama she's about to face in this second book in the series.

Desperate to see her pregnant daughter Bernadette married before the baby comes, Lucille is engrossed in all things wedding. Nothing will distract her from planning this Mazzarella main event. Nothing, that is, except for the murder of the mother of the groom.

Just when things couldn't possibly get any worse, Lucille is named as the prime suspect, and it's a race against time as she and her best friend Flo struggle with shady financial dealings, a family that isn't at all what it seems, a groom that might not be all man, and a little bundle of joy that might make an appearance before the mother can say I do.

"If you want a very funny murder mystery, then this book is for you. I've never laughed so hard while reading before." --Goodreads

"A delightfully funny cozy. The characters were well developed and the reader quickly comes to care about them. The dialogue was refreshingly witty and at times laugh-out-loud funny." --Goodreads

Title: Unholy Matrimony - Lucille Mystery 2 Author: Peg Cochran Published: 3-24-2014 Publisher: Beyond the Page Publishing Pages: 188 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense Sub Genre: Amateur Sleuths; Cozy Mystery; Women Sleuth ISBN: 9781940846125 ASIN: B00J7SGI2A Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 Stars . Lucille's belligerent (and in my opinion spoiled) daughter Bernadette is pregnant without the benefit of marriage. Tony, Flo's son is the father who does not want to get married and is presently in the service out of the country. Lucille is determined to rectify the little detail of no husband. Since Tony refuses to make an honest woman out her daughter she has lined up Taylor to marry Bernadette before the baby is born and give the baby his name. Unfortunately Taylor is the son of Lucille's least liked person from childhood Donna. The night before the wedding Donna and Lucille got into a fight and when Donna is found dead just before the wedding suspicion falls on Lucille. With her usual panache Peg Cochran has written another witty Lucille mystery filled with love of church and family as Lucille prays to her patron saints for guidance and tries to save her daughter's reputation and future, unfortunately in the way things were done in her day. When she is up against the wall there is not anything she will not do to help her family. Luckily her family and friends are willing to do the same for her. There are plenty of clues and red herrings hidden in the story to keep the identity of the killer from the reader until the final reveal. Add in a developed plot, a large helping of humor and some interesting characters and you have a series you will want to enjoy thoroughly. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

4 STARS 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.
