My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the Wedding Planner series. This book could be read as a stand alone. The history of Adri Pyper is told in bits through the book so that you are able to understand who she is and why she behaves the way she does. But it is more fun to follow the series if possible.
The writing of the book is really well done. The mystery starts in the first chapter and I honestly did not know who the villain was until it was about to be revealed.
Adri is in Hawaii to prepare and execute a destination wedding for Luke’s cousin. Luke is the divorce Lawyer that was also in the first book, Diamond Rings Are Deadly Things.
While she is in Hawaii on her first day, trouble begins and a mystery is afoot. Adri is in danger throughout the entire book and it is unclear who is causing the problems for her. There are several candidates in the running for the worst villain.
When Luke arrives he is still taking one step forward towards Adri then a huge step back. There is several interesting opportunities for Adri and she is in mental battle with herself.
Rachelle J. Christensen has done a wonderful job of keeping the suspense alive while maintaining a cozy and clean story going. It is a refreshing change to see the sweetness of the sleuth in a good mystery.
Adri is not your typical gritty rough and tumble sleuth. She is cute. She is not a former detective with an angry heart. She is just a girl that has had so much happen in one year that she is skittish.
I do get frustrated with her flightiness with me, but she is young and she has been told to keep her options open.
I know who I am always pulling for her to commit to, but does she?
All of the side characters are well written, you get to know them and understand them. It is a great series. Now I am ready to read Proposals and Poison.
This book is available in Paperback and in KindleUnlimited on Amazon.
