Book Review - Killer Wedding by Jerrilyn Farmer
I think this catches me up on all the prior Madeline Bean novels by Jerrilyn Farmer... Killer Wedding, the 3rd in the series. Once again, a fun read but rather hard to follow towards the end...
In this installment, Bean's new event business is on hold due to a lawsuit over a non-competing clause from the company that bought their old enterprise. While she's marking time waiting for that to clear, a legendary wedding planner in the city decides that she wants Bean to buy her out and take over. Only problem is, Bean doesn't want to do that. She gets roped into "helping out" on one wedding for the planner, and as usual a dead body shows up at the exclusive wedding... that of the wedding planner. To top it off, the groom has completely disappeared and no one knows where he's at. There's a number of people who could easily be suspects, as the planner wasn't well liked. Bean decides to help figure out who dun it, just so she can close this chapter of her life and make sure she doesn't end up with the planning business (or get killed over it).
Like the rest of her books, Farmer writes a great story. I really enjoy the characters and dialogue, as well as the pacing of the action. This one was a little more difficult to follow towards the end, as there were some character interactions that weren't obvious at the start and didn't seem to fit together very well at the end. Still well worth reading, however... a great deal of fun.
