Katie Ray is due to marry Joe Lyons in just two weeks. She can't wait for her best friend Leslie to arrive from Boston to help her with the wedding. Everything is going great, until Katie gets a case of the nerves and flushes her $8,000 engagement ring down the toilet by accident. With the wedding just weeks away, Katie starts to wonder if it really is true love and meant to be. Does she really love Joe Lyons or is she just anxious to live the married life with just anyone?
Carl Hades is an ex cop, turned Private Investigator, since he was shot in the shoulder in a bust gone wrong. He's still wounded over his ex girlfriend leaving him and the last thing he wants is a serious relationship.
Carl receives a call from a wedding planner named Tabitha Jones offering him a job. One by one brides are turning up dead and they all have something in common. Tabitha was their wedding planner and she suggested the same DJ, florist, photographer, and baker for all of the brides. Tabitha suspects that one of them is the killer, so she calls Carl to work the case since the police aren't being very helpful.
When Tabitha ends up dead with Katie and Carl as the only witnesses, fate pushes the two of them together. Sparks immediately fly between Carl and Katie and destiny takes over. Maybe Joe isn't the man for her after all. What will happen to Katie's engagement to Joe? Will Carl fall for Katie and make her realize true love does exist? Will Katie go through with her wedding or cancel it?
WEDDINGS CAN BE MURDER is a fun romantic suspense type story that kept me intrigued from start to finish. There is humor, romance, mystery, suspense, and a great storyline that will leave readers glued to the pages. I adored Christie Craig's writing and enjoyed this story as much as her previous novel DIVORCED, DESPERATE & DELICIOUS. The romance scenes were sexy and I laughed out loud over several scenes in this story. If you want a sexy romance that will put a smile on your face, a Christie Craig book is the way to go! I highly recommend WEDDINGS CAN BE MURDER to romance readers who enjoy a good mystery along with their romance.
Who knew getting married could get you murdered?
What happens when you realize you're about to marry a man you don't love-a man who doesn't love you? When accidentally flushing her $8,000 engagement ring down the toilet isn't enough of a sign for Katie Ray to call off the big day, fate gets busy. Will seeing her wedding planner murdered and getting herself locked in the dark with a sexy PI do the trick?
Hired by Houston's elite wedding planner to investigate some missing brides, the last thing bad-boy Carl Hades wants is to be shackled with another man's soon-to-be wife. Especially when the gorgeous redhead stirred emotions he'd avoided for years. Now, avoiding her sounds like a genius plan, especially when her future wedding goes the same the way as her engagement ring-down the toilet-making Katie available. . . and a hell of a lot more tempting. But when the missing brides come up dead, Carl suspects that Katie might be next, which makes avoiding her impossible and improbably, especially when being with her is a whole lot of fun.
