“There is actually a mystery within a mystery in Carr’s new book. It’s a tangled, twisting adventure that adds more dead bodies along the way. Carr’s characters are lively, her plots complex, there is always just enough humor to set a lighter tone.” – Review by Allene Reynolds, Mystery and Me

Book Description:

When Mac Faraday decides to do something, there’s no stopping him … even murder!

Not wanting to wait until their big day to start their life of wedded bliss, Mac Faraday and his lady love, Archie Monday, decide to elope to the little church where his ancestors had all married—along the tranquil shore of Deep Creek Lake. However, before they can say, “I do,” the sanctuary erupts into chaos when Gnarly finds a dead body in the church office.

As they dive into the investigation, Mac and his team discover more questions than answers. What kind of person walks into a church and shoots a man for no apparent reason? How do you solve the murder of a man who has no enemies in the world? Which of the seemingly kind-hearted church members is really a cold-blooded killer?

Then, there is the all-important question, how long do Mac Faraday and his lady love have to wait to get married?

PLUS: SPECIAL BONUS FEATURE: THE GNARLY REHABILITATION PROGRAM (A Gnarly Mystery Short): Bert and Ernie learn the hard way that crime does not pay when they dog nap Gnarly.

Review By LAWonder10:

Once again, Lauren Carr has created a suspenseful mystery within a mystery formula to keep her readers/listeners on the “edge of their seats” yet adds in a bit of romance, plus a bit of humor.

Mac and Archie are finally going to “tie the knot”. Mac cannot stand to wait any longer. However, it is to be kept very secret because Archie’s mother insisted on a big wedding affair in a few months. She would be very upset if she knew they secretly got married first. There are only to be five people and one canine in attendance. Of course, nothing ever seems to go as planned in Mac’s life.

Havac breaks out at the church and one event after another unfolds. Will Mac and Archie succeed in their wedding plans?

This is so fun, suspenseful, sad, enraging, hilarious, and intriguing, all in one.

I offer a Five Stars rating.

*This book ws gifted me with no pressure to post  a positive review. This is my honest review.
