Summary

Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and chief superintendent for Scotland Yard, will marry Kate Wakefield in three weeks. It's inevitable - the invitations are out, the flowers are ordered, the cake is chosen. But murder waits for no man - and no wedding.

In London's prestigious West End, a disgraced CEO has been murdered at Hotel Nonpareil, an exclusive destination. No one, it seems, liked Michael Martin Hughes. Not his estranged wife, Thora, or his defiant son, Griffin. Not Hotel Nonpareil's manager, its head of security, or perhaps even the two most important women in Hughes' life: his future bride, Arianna; and his secret girlfriend, Riley. And before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of none other than Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Paul Bhar.

Good English Scotland Yard Mystery

Very upper " Lord" voice is the narrator. But...Lady Hetheridge's voice just did not fit!
The story was good. A little tongue in cheek.
The murderer was a very smarmy fellow!

Good series

I really like this series. The stories are clever and the characters well developed. The narrator is great for all the character EXCEPT Kate. I know she's supposed to be from the poor side of town but she sounds like Betty Boop or Minnie Mouse.

Barely made it to the end

I wanted to like this book and there were moments when I enjoyed some of the humor but overall just did not enjoy the narration at all. It might be more enjoyable in print. The plot was not that intriguing. Sorry!
