Hitched (Regan Reilly Mysteries)by Carol Higgins Clark
Synopses & Reviews
The date is Saturday, April 2. Five April brides discover their wedding dresses have been stolen. One of the brides is private investigator Regan Reilly. Her wedding is in seven days.
Regan Reilly and her fiancé, Jack "no relation" Reilly — head of the NYPD Major Case Squad — are getting married! Regan had the perfect dress made by two young designers on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Arriving at the bridal salon to pick up her gown, Regan discovers the shop has been broken into, the designers bound and gagged, and wedding dresses for four of the April brides (her dress included) are missing. A fifth dress is in shreds on the floor. Even though it's a week before her wedding, Regan gets on the case, and in the process she meets an unusual mix of brides and grooms-to-be, or — perhaps "not-to-be."
Over at One Police Plaza, Regan's bridegroom, Jack, is trying to solve a perplexing series of bank robberies. The robber, nicknamed "The Drip" by the NYPD because he always strikes during rainstorms, has been eluding the police for months. Jack is determined to crack the case before his upcoming nuptials.
Carol Higgins Clark fuses the two seemingly unrelated mysteries with an ingenious twist, taking readers from the streets of New York City, to the casinos of Atlantic City, and finally to that most popular wedding spot — the one and only Las Vegas. She weaves a web of mystery around a charming, humorous tale of five April brides and the trials and tribulations they face planning their weddings.
New York private investigator Regan Reilly and her fianc Jack Reilly (no relation) are finally getting married. But a string of robberies and two seemingly unrelated mysteries may wreak havoc on their upcoming nuptials. Abridged. 4 CDs.

Carol Higgins Clark fuses the two seemingly unrelated mysteries into a charming, humorous tale that takes listeners from the streets of New York and the casinos of Atlantic City to that most popular wedding spot, Las Vegas. A delightful addition to her popular mystery series, complete with the usual "eccentric character, all entertaining" (USA Today), Hitched will keep this literary star's ever-growing fan base laughing.
Private investigator Regan Reilly and her fiancee Jack "no relation" Reilly are finally getting married! Like brides everywhere, Regan discovers that all the planning for the big day is serious work. But unlike most brides, she can't even plan her wedding without getting involved in a mystery. This time it's a case of stolen wedding gowns that have several New York City brides — including Regan — very upset. An elite bridal shop on the Lower East Side, where gowns are still stitched by hand, was broken into and cleaned out of all its wedding finery. Regan investigates the robbery and tries to quickly recover the gowns.
Jack, the head of the Major Case Squad in New York City, is working to solve a series of bank robberies that seem to be committed by the same perp. Jack feels sure that the thief is about to strike again. What Jack doesn't know is that this bank robber has a connection to the bridal gown robberies. And the robber has a major heist planned that could wreak havoc on Jack and Regan's upcoming wedding. It takes the combined forces of Regan and Jack to stop the thief so they can get "Hitched" and get on with their lives as Mr. and Mrs. Reilly!
