The 5th book in the Chintz & China series and, in my opinion, the best one so far. This one takes place in the 2 weeks prior to Emerald's wedding. At time which should be full of joy, but instead is filled with danger and chaos. The otherworldly/paranormal events were not overblown as in some of the previous books, but focused more on psychic feelings and the sense of a nasty energy hovering around Murray. Very well done.
I'm honestly not sure why I liked this fifth book in the Chintz & China series as much as I did - I knew who the "bad guy" was before they were even mentioned, there wasn't a murder, it was chock full of character development driven by disaster followed by disaster after disaster. In short, everything was technically done completely wrong - and I still enjoyed it. The previous book in the series was stronger, but I'm looking forward to the next installment and don't feel a bit cheated.

Emerald O'Brien's wedding is as chaoic as the rest of her life. Her ex shows up at her engagement party and starts a brawl, a day later her fiance is shot and the ex becomes a suspect. And someone is stalking her maid of honor. Is her marriage cursed?
If I didn't have so many other books to read, I'd be even more disappointed that I've caught up with this series. I don't know if more are planned, since this was published several years ago and still has no sequel, but I hope the author revives it.
I thought that this was another wonderful story and I was glued to the pages. The author has definitely taken a place in my favorites list.
