My Review:Someone old, someone cruel
Debutante dropout Andrea Kendricks is beyond done with big hair, big gowns, and big egos—so being dragged to a high-society Texas wedding by her socialite mama, Cissy, gives her a bad case of déjà vu. As does running into her old prep-school bully, Olivia La Belle, the wedding planner, who's graduated to berating people for a living on her reality TV show. But for all the times Andy wished her dead, nobody deserves Olivia's fate: lying in a pool of blood, a cake knife in her throat—but did the angry baker do it?
Millicent Draper, the grandmotherly owner of Millie's Cakes, swears she's innocent, and Andy believes her. Unfortunately, the cops don't. Though Andy's fiancé, lawyer Brian Malone, is handling Millie's case, she's determined to spring Millie herself. But where to start? "La Belle from Hell" had enemies galore. Good thing Andy has a BFF who's a reporter— and a blue-blood mother who likes to pull strings.
I love this series! I was very excited when I heard that a sixth book was going to come out after the cliffhangers from book 5 and it didn't disappoint! I love the progression of the relationship between Andy and her mother, Cissy, throughout this series, too. This book not only progresses all the characters in the series but was fast-faced, fun, and included a great mystery. Everything is always bigger in Texas, including the weddings!
I definitely recommend this for anyone that likes murder mysteries with a comedic twist. This series and the Dead-End Job series by Elaine Viets are my two favorites -- they never disappoint!!
Say Yes to the Death came out today, September 29, 2015, and you can purchase HERE!
Dusk had fallen, and the fairy lights winked around me like lightning bugs. Candelabra centerpieces had been lit upon the tables, and there was a soft golden glow all around. I found myself wishing Malone were with me instead of my mother. The atmosphere was rather romantic, and I got a flutter in my chest, imagining what my big day would be like. I wasn't a girl who'd spent her life cutting pictures of frothy white gowns or floral arrangements out of magazines. I didn't know what I wanted in terms of guest, food, or flowers. I wasn't my mother. I didn't have a detailed plan for everything.
