Carnegie is planning the wedding of one of Seattle's most prominent families. Before she can get her bride into just the right dress, a murder and kidnapping plunge Carnegie into a mystery of extortion and violence
Cute first mystery about a wedding planner. I picked it up because I like female amateur detectives and used to live in Seattle (the setting for the series). The descriptions of the area were spot-on; just enough detail without spoiling the plotline. I'll be reading more of these; they are very enjoyable, easy reads with some predictability but still fun.
First in the series. IK plan to read the rest of the series. From FantasticFiction.com:
She thought she was planning a wedding.
What she got was ... Veiled Threats.
A wedding to die for....
When love is in the air, Carnegie Kincaid is not far behind. A wedding planner who works out of her Seattle houseboat, Carnegie makes magic — usually — with fractious families, brimming brides, and cantankerous caterers to give loving couples the wedding they’ve always wanted. So why is her dream job turning into a perfect nightmare?
It started when Carnegie agreed to plan the wedding of one of Seattle’s most prominent families — who happen to be going through a high-stakes, headline-grabbing legal war. Before she can get her bride-to-be into just the right dress, a murder and a kidnapping plunge Carnegie into a mystery of extortion and violence.
With a shadowy figure stalking her, a rich lawyer wooing her, and an annoying reporter pursuing her, Carnegie is putting all wedding plans on hold. In an explosion of sheer terror, she must hunt down a killer — till death do her part....
Wait for it...wait a little more...just a smidge more. Alright, now! There is a lot of background work in this book but when it finally gets going I could not put it down. I really wanted to know who all the bad guys were and it was quite a wild ride there toward the end.
I do have a little problem, I hate it when books are released and recommended like they are just brand new and were written and published in 2002. It does have the original cover and I guess had I paid closer attention I would have realized it was an old book re-released but it was recommended as one of the latest and greatest.
I will read the others in the series...I truly did enjoy this one.
