A diva wedding planner found strangled with a veil. A list of suspects longer than a cathedral-length train. Being a wedding planner has never been so deadly . . .

When tragedy befalls more of the city's wedding planners, Annabelle realizes her colleagues have tangled pasts and motives that stack up higher than a celebrity wedding cake. Can Annabelle unveil the killer before she or her sassy assistant, Kate, are the next on the wedding planner hit list?

I am a cozy fan but this is not just another cozy. This was so funny and I loved the characters so much! I had not read this author previously but I am now a big-time fan, especially this series. While murder is not funny, the characters involved in finding the body and in solving the mystery were believable and hilarious.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
To Love and To Perish (An Annabelle Archer Mystery) is another ACTION PACKED ADVENTURE in Wedding Tales! This novel deals with a Texas sized Wedding (and everyone knows EVERYTHING is bigger and better when you’re dealing with Texans a Wedding is colossal!) Being a Wedding Planner is not for the faint of heart. Consider the hours and working every weekend. Some clients are wonderful and continue to hire Wedding Belles for other monumental occasions. Then there are the Bridezillas and the Momzillas. Sometimes they are not even in the same Wedding Party. In this novel, Durham has presented Archer with a serious problem of the teetotaling Bride’s Family & the drunken Priest flown in from Ireland just for the purpose of presiding over the nuptials. When he asks to stop off at a pub between the airport and the Rehearsal, Archer knew she might be in trouble. She had no idea just how ugly things would get ... . To make things even worse, there’s been a murder, or two, or three - maybe it’s four. It’s difficult to keep up as Wedding Planners keep dropping like flies! What’s the common denominator? And the bigger question is WHO WILL BE NEXT? I was provided an ARC of this book by the author. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence. I have preordered a copy of this book for my own personal library.
Will leave you wanting more!
