Margot just wants to plan her wedding to Adam in peace, however, one day she gets an e-mail about Julian’s death. With Adam out of town, she goes to the meeting alone only to find the body of the man she was going you meet. Together, Adam and Margot work together to try and figure out who wants to kill the reporter, and how it’s connected to Julian. Maybe Margot can finally lay this mystery to rest.

Yes!!!! I have been waiting for this story for the last 10 books. I always felt like there was more to Julian’s story than we were given, and now we know what happened. Until this book, Julian’s death seemed out of place and an arch that needed to be cleared up before Margot and Adam’s wedding. The mystery was a little obvious once the character was introduced, however, it was an interesting story that really pulled you in.

Margot and Adam’s relationship really expanded this book and they felt like the perfect pair. Julian’s past was blown wide open and the reader finally understands what happened in Margot’s past and how similar Adam and Julian truly are. Though Dexter was in the book he played a secondary role, it was nice to see bake Dexter completely on display.

This book was so fun and interesting like all the books in this series.

Felicity lands the biggest party to hit town, the party for the actors who play in the locally shoot zombie show. It’s all fun and games until a dead body turns up at the party, all made up in zombie makeup. When the producer finds out the Felicity has worked on cases before he hires her to work this one. Suddenly she is fighting back her memories while trying to move forward.

The story was interesting and not as straightforward as I would have expected. The story kept me guessing until the very end, which is rare for me. I enjoyed how everything fell into place in the end and it all made sense. The ending didn’t feel forced at all and came together very well.  It was also very interesting how they incorporated the local TV show into the mystery. There was a lot more to the store than simply just throwing together a bunch of misunderstood actors.

Sadly Jack wasn’t really in this book, though that might be a good thing, as he always seems to get into trouble when he looks into a case with Felicity. We also get to know more about Felicity’s parents in this book, as she does spend some time with her mother in this book. Her mother is really fun to get to know, and I can not see why Felicity is so skeptical of what people say to her. Jefferson was really supportive and though he could have been written to use the situation to his advantage he never does. It’s really nice to see someone who is romantically interested in someone not take advantage of the situation. Felicity is a little over the place however, it was understandable after what happened to her fiance in the last book.

I really enjoyed this book, I’m going to blame it on Brian not being in this book.

When Monte loses his job right before the wedding, he thought that it couldn’t get any worst. However, when he finds his boss murdered and is blamed them for the murder, things go from bad to worst. Felicity and Jefferson work hand in hand with same Dawn’s and Monte’s wedding. The only problem is to find a person that wanted to kill the victim and why.

I enjoyed seeing them trying to save Monte before the wedding. The group of friends work together to figure out who did it. Thought most of the time Jefferson and Felicity work together, we did get to be reminded how well Jack and Felicity work together. It wasn’t straightforward as I thought it would be at the beginning, however, it was very interesting.

We get two new characters in this book who are very cute. They are a couple, and we find out very quickly why they would have decided to work together at the party planning shop. I think due to the new additions, the book could be much more focused on the investigation rather than the parties. Though they were close before, we do get to see Jefferson and Felicity grow closer in this book which leads to an interesting turn of events at the end, after Dawn’s and Monte’s wedding of course.

I enjoyed this book, and can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out.
