Wed, Read & Dead

This installment in V.M. Burns' Mystery Bookshop series is centered around the Christmas holidays and family.  This book that focuses around the wedding of Sam's mother, Grace, as the name implies.  This book picks up where the last left off with a rush to plan the wedding in just 3 weeks.  Enter an overbearing Wedding Planner and some pretentious relatives.  The death of one of these annoying interlopers to the North Harbor group is not too heartbreaking but leads to Harold, the groom to be, being a prime suspect.

Of course Sam, Nana Jo and the ladies from Shady Acres have their hands full investigating this in addition to planning the wedding.  It ends up being an all hands on deck and we get to catch up with Sam's nephews, Dawson, the MISU girls as well as meet some new characters who tug at your heart strings.  The book definitively examines the concept that family is not only about blood and DNA.
There are plenty of comical moments to help offset the sad ones.

The series continues to be a fun read and I look forward to reading the next installment in the series.
