Halliday resumes the story of Maddie Springer, shoe designer and amateur sleuth, a week before her marriage to hunky Los Angeles police detective Jack Ramirez. When she finds her wedding planner face down in frosting with a knife sticking out of her back, she knows that to leave on time for their honeymoon, she needs to help Jack solve the case. Her two best friends step in, not only to help find the killer, but also to serve as her new wedding planners.
In between dress fittings and pedicures, Maddie and her crew visit everyone associated with the victim’s personal and professional life. Meanwhile, the guest list grows longer, and a tropical-themed ceremony coalesces, complete with giant tiki heads. As every lead turns into a dead end, Maddie’s big day seems doomed.
It's driving me nuts that in a mystery novel where one of the two main characters is a homicide detective, she keeps saying "home-o-side"
Not my favorite of the series, but still lively and entertaining.

Great continuation of the story and I really enjoy the performance of the narrator. Love this series and can't wait to move on to the next book!
Would you try another book from Gemma Halliday and/or Caroline Shaffer?
Its the same as all her other books but in short form!
Has Mayhem in High Heels turned you off from other books in this genre?
What didn’t you like about Caroline Shaffer’s performance?
was not her, it was the story that she had to read!
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
BOOO THIS BOOK!!!
I just loove this series. The narrator is fantastic! Gemma does a great job explaining details from earlier in the series without it being redundant; allowing any person to pick up new at any point in the series.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I guess, maybe. Entertaining, but nothing special
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
No special reaction
Did Caroline Shaffer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
She really doesn't use different voices
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
