From USA Today bestselling author Kelly Rey comes the next hilarious Jamie Winters Mystery …
Legal secretary and sometimes-sleuth Jamie Winters thought she'd seen it all... until now.
When Oxnard Thorpe, the Adult Diaper King of New Jersey and one of Parker, Dennis’s most important clients, is found dead in the swimming pool of his sprawling mansion on his wedding night, his bride gives Jamie and her teenaged sidekick, Maizy, the green light to find the killer. Could it be the faded society maven, the bridesmaid for hire, the harried housekeeper, Oxnard’s embittered twin siblings, the surly wedding planner, the groom’s sketchy colleague, or even the not-so-blushing bride herself? Just when it seems things couldn’t possibly get more confusing, they get an assist from Eunice Kublinski, the firm’s timid new attorney with a morbid fear of public speaking—which makes things much, much worse! If Jamie doesn't unravel the truth quickly, she may just be next on the killer's list!

Legal secretary Jaimie Winters once again finds herself in the midst of chaos at the behest of her law firm. Bribed into attending a wedding for a client, Jaimie discovers that not only is she now the new maid of honor. None of the bridal party seems interested in either the wedding or the bride, who is intent on being the latest wife of the much older Adult Diaper King. A murder just after the hasty ceremony lands Sybil in the hot seat, and only the lure of more fees and possibly getting fired from her job keep Jaimie involved. Aided by her teenaged neighbor and a barely competent atttorney, the trio hilariously investigate the murder. G"edy heirs, a surprisingly number of exes, and disgruntled business partners all make for a vast suspect list. The humor level is high, but it's never too absurd or completely over the top. Eunice, a new attorney skilled at...it's yet to be determined, pops in and out at just the right amount of times to never be too irritating. Teen Maizy is fun and never obnoxious, despite her enviable collection of cars and inability to drive. Thoroughly enjoyable and fun, this is another delightful mystery series.
Love the Jamie Winters series! The diaper king gets married and Jamie is thrown into the midst of the chaotic wedding of the firms biggest client' and endures the bridal party duties only to find the groom dead within minutes of the reception. Now she and her young sidekick have their work cut out for them to find the murderer! As always , you will be in suspense till the end!
The fourth book in the Jamie Winter mystery series continues with her still working at what is now the Parker, Dennis law firm. While at work one day, Jamie is conned into appearing at a wedding as a bride’s maid for the future wife of one of the firm’s best (meaning richest) clients. Of course, at the wedding a murder happens and once again Jamie is in the middle of the chaos that ensues. I truly enjoy Ms. Rey’s characters and writing. The dialog is quick and witty and keeps you laughing as you follow along to try to solve the murder. I received a copy of this book in order to give an honest review. Since I have read the other books in the series and enjoyed each one, this was a review that I very much looked forward to – an entertaining and fun mystery! (by paytonpuppy)
