And finally, will Annie and Nate's upcoming nuptials be derailed by their attempts to track down a killer?

This book was a little slower than the rest of the series, but still a good read
Another enjoyable read/listen by M. Louisa Locke. The audio version by Alexandra Haag helped bring this story to life. A very good joint effort by two very talented artistes.
I especially liked all the twists and turns that kept me guessing and I will admit to being quite surprised in the end as to who the murderer really was.
In addition to this, the love and mutual respect building up between Anne and Nate was lovely to read about.
It seems that Nate's younger sister is getting up to a bit of mischief in this story which is quite refreshing.
This is the third stand-alone story in the series that I have read so far and I can quite happily recommend each one of them.
I loved it! This was a great book and was very hard to put down.
"Kept you guessing"
Interesting and thought-provoking. The author offered many different lines of thought and suspects, although there wasn't a lot of time offered before the final conclusion was reached. The book itself wasn't too short, but the time between the suggestion of the murder and the conclusion kind of was. It would have been pleasant to have had more time to savor the possibilities. But overall, it was a pleasant book, complete with a happy ending :-)
