This book to me felt rushed, and the characters were way under developed. It read like a script to a daytime soap. This author seems to have excellent ideas for her stories but doesnt take the time to pull you into the book and let you fall in love with the characters - they are to busy falling in love with each other in the first 5mins, I wish she spent the time (and pages) to really let the story play out instead of skimming it and everything being done in fast forward.

Marci Turner who I absolutely adored was marrying Paul Pendergrass of the Charlton, South Carolina Pendergrass family. Or was he?? Marc’s Cinderella wedding turned into a nightmare when her groom ran off with the pastor and his best man before saying “I Do”, leaving her behind to take the rap for his scamming old people out of their retirement money. Good-looking detective Cade Muller is out to prove she was involved up to her voluptuous ahhh….neck. Except it’s pretty hard to prove something whe ...more
*** 3.5 stars ***

There were some editing mistakes that kind of interrupted the flow of the story but other than that it was pretty good.

I love just about anything I can get my hands on by this author. Silly me, read this out of order. So now I need to go back and read the first one. This worked great as a stand alone book, but about half way through I figured out this was the next in a series. Instead of stopping to get the previous book I went ahead and finished it. Now I can't wait to read the previous one.

Good work yet again Ms. Rita! Bring on some more!

OMG this book was hilarious. Also it was so overly out there I had no idea what was going to happen. I finished in one sitting and couldn't stop laughing. Some of the sentences were weird though and had repeating words in places but that could just be the kindle version regardless I was tickled by it.

Marci Turner wasn't always the “bright” twin but she’s the pretty one.... She's finally getting her life together and celebrating with the biggest, Cinderella-style wedding of the century...

Read the rest at my book blog.

The thought process is lacking, the detectives are not to inteligent and they dont use a decoy when thats an obvious solution. But the idea is wonderful.

Two-haiku review:

She is arrested
At her wedding--groom escapes
She tries to help cops

More farce than romance
Zany, melodramatic
Lots of crazy twists

3.5 stars. Great story. The ending was a little too "nice and tidy." Overall it was an entertaining read.

Cute book, a few errors that I noted, though. (Some just spelling or grammar, a few story line issues that just had me going, "Huh?").

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. Although she wanted to be a writer then and actually scrawled her first novel at age twelve, she didn’t think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a kindergarten teacher instead. Ten years ago, she traded her classroom storytelling a ...more
