I'm sad to say it, but this is probably one of the worst books I've ever read. The plot is non existent, the characters thin, and it is full of inconsistencies. I think this will be my last Churchill. I don't know what happened to her.

Jane and Mel get married!!!!! Finally. Quite honestly, this book was very light on mystery. It almost felt like the author felt she had to tie up loose ends before she felt comfortable moving aways from this group of characters.

Even without all the mystery, I found this book to be enthralling. Things that I wanted to happen books ago did. But it also meant that some sad things had to happen as well. I've come to love this family, so it was a little sad to think this might be the end. If there is never another book in this series, I feel satisfied. If there is another book in this series, I will be delighted. But I wonder if the author will do some spin offs....

I have like all of Jill Churchill's Jane Jeffry's mysteries but I am disappointed in this one. It just isn't up to the rest of them. I think maybe she should just wait a bit for the next one to really get back to the fun of these stories.

Although I've really enjoyed previous Jane Jeffry "mysteries," this was a disappointment. The mystery element was almost completely absent while the book focused on extraneous matters, Jane's book, wedding, and family relationships. While these are part and parcel of her life, as a mystery series, I expect more mystery and in this book, it seemed like an afterthought and certainly wasn't compelling.

Jane is finally getting married to detective Van Dyne, and she and Shelly spend a lot of time finding the right fabrics, hats and flowers for the fake wedding to be thrown by Mel's mother. Meanwhile her deceased husband's mother tries to play havoc with the whole thing. Jane's children are almost all grown, so we have seen their development, and we get to meet her parents, too. It is more of a Jane story than a mystery.

I started reading the Jane Jeffry books when the very first one was published. And although I always enjoyed dipping into the Jane and Shelly world - the mysteries have been getting less and less compelling.

Unfortunately, this last installment, did not truly have a mystery that Jane was involved in at all. While it was nice to have the story of Jane come to some closure, the book was pretty much devoid of plot, contained MANY inconsistencies with things established earlier in the series and felt like Jill Churchill was writing out of contractual obligation rather than because she had a story to tell.
