BOOK REVIEW: BRIDE AND DOOM
When Gordo Guitierrez, player for the Seattle Navigators baseball team, decided to marry a goth rocker called Honeysuckle Hell, and the Navigators owners decided to foot the bill for the wedding, wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid is working on a wedding that will be different than any wedding that has come before or will come afterwards. The wedding would be open-to-the public taking place on the baseball diamond. The engagement party is a media event with batting practice as one of the party games. Carnegie who owns Made In Heaven (Elegant Weddings with an Original Flair) is working as a temporary employee of Beau Paliere, celebrity-wedding planner, and had just assured Beau that she had Honeysuckle under control. That is when Honeysuckle a/k/a Rose McKinney who had a little too much to drink decided to make a mad dash across the baseball field attempting to catch the wind. This is just a small example of some of the problems Carnegie had to face in her employment with Beau.
Next problem is a murder. Digger Duvall, a sports commentator is found dead. The murder weapon just happens to be a baseball bat. Carnegie's florist is arrested for the murder.
Carnegie has also just become engaged to Aaron Gold and trying to make her own wedding plans. Now she has to worry about how to get Boris the florist out of jail, be sure Honeysuckle's wedding runs smoothly and try to decide on her own plans.
Bride and Doom is a fast read and full of interesting characters. Bride and Doom is different from the type of book I normally read but I very much enjoyed the characters and the mystery.
