Summary
Wedding bells are ringing in the latest page-turning Library Lover's Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Word to the Wise .

Love is in the air in Briar Creek as library director Lindsey Norris and boat captain Mike (Sully) Sullivan are finally tying the knot. The entire town is excited for the happy day, and Lindsey and Sully's plan for a small wedding evaporates as more and more people insist upon attending the event of the year.

When Lindsey and her crafternoon pals head out to Bell Island to see if it can accommodate the ever-expanding guest list, they are horrified to discover a body washed up on the rocky shore. Even worse, Lindsey recognizes the man as the justice of the peace who was supposed to officiate her wedding ceremony. When it becomes clear he was murdered, Lindsey can't help but wonder if it had to do with the wedding. Now she has to book it to solve the mystery before it ends her happily ever after before it's even begun....
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lindsey and Sully are finally getting married. Their plan was to have a small gathering at the home of Sully's parents on one of the islands offshore from Briar Creek, the small town on the Connecticut coast where Lindsey is the librarian and Sully is a tour-boat captain. But Lindsey gave the printer the wrong invitation list, and most of the town will be in attendance! Visiting the island, the day after a Christmas party at the home of Steve Briggs, a corporate attorney and local justice of the peace, Lindsey and Sully find Briggs' body on the beach. They try to leave any investigating to the police chief, focusing instead on their wedding, which now requires finding someone to officiate in place of Briggs. But it's a small town, and the locals know that Sully and Briggs were childhood friends, so they share recollections of overheard conversations at the fateful party, each expanding the suspect pool. Fans of this series will love the scenes leading up to the wedding ceremony and the myriad ways the incidental characters have knit themselves into a supportive community."
