I love a good mystery, so when I saw this novel at my local bookstore, I decided to pick it up. I confess though, my eye was drawn to the cover because of the corgi on the front–a cute puppy and a mystery? Sounds like an excellent idea to me!
The story starts with an introduction to the main character, Beatrice, who is set to marry the local minister, Wyatt. Of course, when preparing for a wedding, nothing goes according to plan. In fact, more events transpire for this couple than most you would ever know, because murder preceded their big day. If things were not complicated enough, family members are the immediate suspects, and many individuals in town are trying to help solve the case–including Beatrice. She just cannot seem to figure out who might be to blame, but then she does not know the victim’s family all that well. Just when things appear to make sense, another nightmare takes place.
There are so many characters to get to know within the pages of this book, and Beatrice’s life is very active. So much so that at times it made me tired! But her love and knowledge of the people that surround her is apparent, including her love for her fiancé. As Wyatt tries his best to care for the grieving family, can Beatrice help put their mind at ease by cracking the case?
If you enjoy mysteries, I recommend adding this book to your bookshelf. I was excited to see that Elizabeth Craig has ten books in her Southern Quilting Mystery series! Happy reading friends and stay safe!
