Adri is back to business and as busy as ever with her wedding planning, and of course mystery sleuthing. She just can't help but in the center of everything murder and mayhem. Honestly, it's not her fault. She just is this magnet for it. I laughed so many times throughout this series when everyone (ok maybe not everyone, but her family, Tony the cop, other cops, and Luke) would look at Adri and be like, seriously, you're in the middle of this...AGAIN? Yeah, it was pretty humorous. I loved it!

Proposals and Poison is book 3 in the Wedding Planner Mysteries. It is another fun episode of Adri Pyper's life. With Luke, Tony and Lorea all involved.

The story has a murder that everyone has a theory about. The gossips are going wild with rumors of who is inheriting a fortune from the untimely death of a friend. Adri is asked by Tony and Luke to stay out of this one. Of course Adri can't help but finding herself in the middle of the danger.

All the while is love brewing? I have been following

Rachelle is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors for a good mystery. I love her WEDDING PLANNER MYSTERY series. I look forward to each book. PROPOSALS AND POISONS does not disappoint. The mystery had me guessing with every turn of the page. I didn't know who to trust and the suspects were convincing. Rachelle writes her characters well. Adri especially is great character. I love how organized and meticulous she is. I also really like Luke. Something exciting happens between them and it is ...more

Wedding planner extraordinaire Adri Pyper has been back from Hawaii for a few months and she and her business partner are getting ready for a busy wedding season in Idaho, oh and she's dating divorce attorney Luke Stetson! When her neighbor and client, Lily Rowan, is found dead and it's determined to be murder by poisoning you know Adri is going to find it hard not to get involved in figuring out who the murderer is.

There's so much more to this book than figuring out who murdered Lily. Adri and

Each book can stand alone, but the reader will miss out on the relationship development between the main characters and her love interest if they're not read in order.

Adri is a great wedding planner in Sun Valley, Idaho. This book takes place in town and I love the quirky weddings and brides that show up throughout the story. Adri gets the couples married and Luke, her love interest, divorces them. As with the other stories in the series, a potential bride dies mysteriously and Adri finds hersel

Proposals and Poison is a wonderful addition to Rachelle J. Christensen's Wedding Planner Mysteries. This is the third book in the series. You can follow along and read this book without reading the first two, but there is a lot of history between Adri and her love interest, Luke. This book had me wanting to read more about them and to see where their relationship is headed.

This is a wonderful mystery book. Adri is a wedding planner who finds herself in the middle of murder mysteries. She doesn'

I loved this suspenseful and romantic conclusion to a fabulous series, but at the same time I was so sad to know this is the last book. I'd highly recommend all the Wedding Planner Mystery series.

This is the third book in this Wedding Planner series featuring Adri Pyper. If you love cozy mysteries, you will love this one. Well, the whole series, really. This series reminds me of the culinary cozy mystery series by Josi Kilpack starring Sadie Hoffmiller. Instead of recipes for food (although there are some of those too), this one provides ideas for weddings and other helpful crafty ideas.

It's true. Adri cannot keep herself away from trouble. She finds it. It finds her. Murders su

This is the third book in this series that I have read and our girl Adri Pyper sure gets herself in a lot of difficult situations, and maybe you shouldn’t be friends with her, because murder seems to follow her.
Adri is still dating uncommitted Luke, a divorce attorney that is like oil and water to her wedding planning business. There are a few cute happening in this story, a dog themed wedding for one, but when one friend, neighbor, client is murdered Adri doesn’t believe they arrested the right

I have been loving this great series by Rachelle J Christensen. I love the setting, Sun Valley, Idaho has lots of fond memories from my high school days.

I love Adri's business, she's always helping her clients find their happily ever after by planning the best wedding possible for each person. And her assistant Lorea is so fun!

I love that Adri is always thrust into murder investigations not by her own choice, but how her friend and police officer, Tony, is always trying to get her to stay out
I read the first book in this series when it first came out. Then I skipped the second book and just jumped into this book, which is the third in the series. I didn't have any problems catching up with the story or the characters. I think any of these books could be read as as stand-alone.

The big difference with this book, compared to the other two in the series, is the romance. Our two main characters, Adri and Luke, come out of the friendship zone here with some great kissing. I felt like the

This is the third book of the series, and I enjoy each one more than the last. Who knew that being a wedding planner could put someone in the middle of so many murder investigations?

All of the characters are written so well that we easily care about each of them. Rachelle writes them into situations which make the reader smile, even though the characters may not see the humor in the situation at the time. And they deal with issues which are believable and real to life (except maybe for all the m

Adri Pyper's neighbor and client, Lily Rowan is murdered. The fiancee, Tim is the prime suspect but Adri thinks he is innocent. She is told not to get involved but finds that difficult when people approach her with information. Her assistant, Lorea also gets involved with he case.

I didn't think the mystery was as strong in this book as it was in the last book. I felt the focus was more on her job and romance with Luke Stetson. I really liked the characters and their story but I would have liked

This is the 3rd book in the Wedding Planner Mystery series and I enjoyed writing more of Adri's story. This one has a lot of things that readers have been begging for, plenty of mystery, humor, and a return to the setting of beautiful Sun Valley/Hailey, Idaho. I love the way the cover turned out on this book and I hope readers enjoy the twists and turns in this mystery.
I listened to this latest cozy mystery from Rachelle Christensen. I liked it, but the problem was that the narrator sounded too old for the main character. She also made the character sound annoying and she grated on my nerves. I have read the previous books and liked them though they were a little cheesy, but listening to the book made the book sound even more cheesy. I really liked the development of the relationship between Adri and Luke finally! The mystery was even semi interesting. I would ...more

This is the 3rd book in the Wedding Planner Mysteries. It can be read as a stand alone. But, you will want to read all of these fabulous books! Andri is busy planning a wedding when her client is mysteriously murdered. Looking at all the possible suspects, preparing for a craft festival, working on a relationship with Luke and planning other weddings, Andri is very busy. Also, the book includes some wonderful recipes! I made the Chicken Enchalida's, delicious! (no mushrooms for me). I really hav ...more

Another really good read in the mystery suspense and romance filled wedding planner series by Rachelle Christensen. This time around, both Adrielle Pyper and her wedding business partner, Lorea, have their hands full with wedding drama and a new client who turns up poisoned. If murder isn't enough to keep these gals busy, they're both juggling all the feelings and butterflies that come with falling in love.
I highly recommend this author!

Another good addition to this series. It was nice to see the ladies personal relationships grow and develop, as well as to get to know Adri's family better. I find the mysteries intriguing and usually cannot resolve them to the end. I hope to find more in this series or by this author.

In complete honesty I preferred the first two books in this series than this, in terms of the crime and the conclusion but I truly loved the relationships between Adri and Luke and Lorea and Tony. The mundane parts of this book made me happy.

3rd book in the Wedding Planner Mysteries.
This series is not exceptional but it is definitely a fun and nice reading.

By this point it's impossible not to grow attached to the characters.

Written nicely, worth reading for a light and pleasurable read.

It was super cheesy, sometimes suffocatingly so, but I expected that. I wanted a nice, fluffy read and that is what I got. Also, like all mysteries, I want to know who did it and why. It was kind of predictable.

Adri is at it again in spectacular fashion. she is home and working a few weddings when one turns to be lost due to the bride being murdered. This time she gets involved without meaning to. this town is a mecca for gossip and it seems to land in her shop. Once again we are treated to a fun loving and entertaining book. What I liked the most is the growth of Luke and how his work ended up entwined in Adri’s and a murder. Except Luke doesn’t accidentally ge

Adri is back in Idaho and work is in full swing with all the summer and fall weddings she's planning. After all the excitement during a client's destination wedding in Hawaii (book 2, Veils and Vengeance), Adri is ready to settle down, work for a while and figure out her relationship with Luke. Unfortunately, Adri can't seem to catch a break. When one of her clients is murdered, Adri can't seem to stay out of the investigation.

I can't believe I wanted so long to read this installment in the Wedding Planner series. I really enjoy Rachelle's books and try to picture the scenery in Idaho because it is very different from where I live in Texas.

The mystery portion was well written. I suspected a few people, not for any real clues that were revealed but because I didn't like the characters and thought they needed to be guilty! Luckily I was right on a few occasions for different reasons.

I am not sure what to say about this book. I first read Christensen when I read her Veils and Vengeance. I LOVED it. It was quick-witted, suspenseful and romantic. I remember not being able to put it down. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about this one. I got about 45% of the way through and just couldn’t take it anymore. I had a guess as to the culprit and the story was just getting toooooo ddrrraaaaaawwwwnnn ooouuuutttt. I literally, skimmed to the

I really enjoyed the first two books in the series and have been looking forward to this one. I love the romance going on with Luke and Adri and was glad this one gave us some more swoon-worthy moments!

If you haven't read this series, you should. Adri Pyper is a wedding planner, but murder and mayhem seem to follow her wherever she goes. This time, her client is murdered and Adri is pretty sure the police are looking at the wrong guy. She's asked to stay out of it, but clues just keep falling in
This is the third book in this series and I enjoyed it as much as the first two! Adri just can't seem to keep away from the action. This time, one of her clients died, and the police believed she was poisoned. Adri couldn't believe where the evidence was leading and wanted to help clear the name of another friend.

Adri is a wedding planner and Luke is a divorce attorney. They met in the first book and haven't always gotten along. There is an attraction there, though, and they start to explore it
