Marriage Is Pure Murder--Book Review

About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
Wedding bells are ringing at the O’Connell Organic Farm and Spa in California’s postcard-perfect Blossom Valley. The entire staff is pitching in to send one of their own down the aisle. But no one knew the nuptials could turn up so many secrets—or that marriage and murder could go hand in hand . . .

Dana Lewis is marrying Jason Forrester, a talented reporter and the love of her life. She couldn’t dream of a better venue than the farm where she works, and her friends are determined to give her the wedding of her dreams. Even her florist, Bethany Lancaster, is making sure she has just the right flowers. But Dana’s happiness wilts when she finds Bethany shot dead—and discovers her friend was a busybody with a blackmail list longer than a cathedral veil. With so many enemies, finding Bethany’s killer seems all but impossible. And when Dana herself is eyed as a suspect, she’ll have to chase down the culprit faster than she can say, “I do”—or she’ll be trading in her wedding dress for prison stripes . .
And I thought
Oh goodness Marriage Is Pure Murder was charmingly delightful.  If the cover doesn't just 'get you' read on!

I couldn't help but wonder where I've been!  Getting in at book 6 was simple.  I didn't even really realize there were more books until I got ready to write this review.  Now I want to read them all!

This is definitely one you can jump into book 6 without feeling confused from having missed the others.  The author does a wonderful job of telling a story and pulling the reader in all the way to the end..  

The characters are delightfully fun.  Some are quirky,  some are a bit mysterious.  Some are cranky.  

I enjoyed following Dana's whirlwind ride to the alter.
Discovering a body just days before her wedding and then becoming a suspect or person of interest isn't a great start to wedding week.  Especially when the deceased is the florist!

The town of Blossom Valley is delightful.  Even though more than of few of it's residents just might be the culprit!  

Among the suspects are the victim's daughter that takes over running the floral shoppe.  The ice cream shoppe owner who is acting way too mysterious and wants to buy the floral shoppe to expand.  

And the list grows larger when Dana discovers that the deceased has a habit of being  snoopy and tends to blackmail a few of her customers.  

This was a super fun cozy mystery to read.  The were numerous characters that I would love to interview and maybe sit down to share a cup of coffee.   

Or maybe it would be more fun to have a chat with Wilbur the pig. He saves the day I wish I could tell you more'll have to read the book!
