Publisher Comments:

Wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid attempts to track down a killer hidden among the star-studded guests in this fourth mystery in Donnelly's acclaimed series. Original.

Review:

"In Donnelly's latest mystery featuring sassy and sarcastic Seattle wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid (after 2003's May the Best Man Die), Carnegie is reluctant to return home to Sun Valley, Idaho, to attend the nuptials of her glamorous pal Tracy, now a Hollywood star, who's managed to snag the object of Carnegie's long ago (and current) desire, Jack 'the Knack' Packard. But when Carnegie's least favorite cousin, Brian, dies in a smoke-jumper accident, Carnegie heads for beautiful Sun Valley, where she gets hooked into last-minute planning for the giant shindig as well as helping investigate Brian's mysterious death. Because the wedding relates only peripherally to the world of smoke jumping and thus the crime, the novel can be bumpy, focusing on orange tiramisu cake at one moment and covert visits to the smoke jumpers' base at the next. Additionally, unlike the larger-than-life characters involved in the wedding (i.e., the quivering mother-of-the-bride and Boris, the exuberant Russian florist), those with motive to do Brian in never develop in their own right. This, plus a pat denouement, stunt the mystery, though some readers may still enjoy this cozy's comic moments. Agent, Laura Blake Peterson. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

You are cordially invited. . . . Don’t miss amateur detective Carnegie Kincaid, expert in all things matrimony and murder, in the Hallmark original movie Wedding Planner Mystery on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

TO SURVIVE THE WEDDING OF THE SEASON . . .

Wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid can feel the heat when she reunites with an old flame in the wealthy resort community of Sun Valley—but handsome smoke jumper Jack Packard is about to marry Carnegie’s former best friend, now a famous TV actress. With a star-studded ceremony to pull off, a noncommittal boyfriend back in Seattle, and a supercilious Frenchman barking orders, Carnegie has no time for carnal urges. Especially once murder joins the party.

YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE THE PLUNGE.

The victim was a local hero who leapt from planes to fight fire. But was his impromptu skydive a smoke screen for something sinister? With her florist going AWOL, her bride going ballistically Hollywood, and her curiosity running wild, Carnegie may be in over her head: Someone in Sun Valley is a killer—and it’s up to Carnegie to grill the guests and unmask the villain . . . or watch her glitzy job go up in flames.
