This book (along with several others in the series) has been languishing on my over-full TBR pile for quite a long time, and now that I've finally read it, I'm sorry I took so long!

Meg Langslow has been pressed into service as Maid of Honor in three different weddings, and she's up to her eyeballs in wedding preparations for all three. When an out-of-town guest shows up dead, it's up to Meg to make sure the murder doesn't stand in the way of wedded bliss ...

I enjoyed Meg as a character. She is smart, strong and sassy. And she's surrounded by mad-cap neighbors and relatives. Although the summer as a whole was pretty much a comical farce, no one situation was so eye-rollingly unbelievable as to make me want to throw the book across the room (which happens oh-so-often when some authors try to write "comedy").

The writing style was quick and snappy ... with very visual descriptions, comfortable dialog, and enough "movement" to keep you from losing interest. I'm looking forward to my next adventure with Meg ....
