Love can be a very dangerous thing.
At least it seems that way to Adri Pyper, the premier wedding planner in Sun Valley, Idaho. When one of her clients dies mysteriously, Adri takes the advice of the local detective and swears she will stay out of the investigation . . . this time. Luke Stetson's involvement in the case, along with the possibility of a kiss between the two, should be enough incentive to keep Adri out of trouble. But when a dog-themed wedding is almost ruined by a suspect, Adri and her assistant, Lorea, are thrust into private eye mode. When poison enters the picture, even a reluctant sleuth can’t steer clear of danger.


My Review: 4 Stars
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 herself semi-involved in the case, much to Luke's dismay.

Adri is a fun character. I love all the tips, crafts, and recipes that show up at the beginning of each chapter. She's a hardworking girl, determined to prove her worth in the business.She's friends with everyone. Luke is newer to town, but he's a great addition. He's smart and dedicated and I really enjoy getting to know his character bit by bit.

The build up of the chemistry between the two of them is really swoony, so of course I enjoyed that part of it. I also enjoyed the mystery elements. The way the mystery comes together is very entertaining and was hard for me to work out in my mind while reading it. I love it when that happens! This is a great series that always leaves me wondering what will happen next. There are a few loose ends that leave things open for future books, especially with characters and locations.

Content: no language or religious elements; mild romance (a few swoony kisses); mild violence (murders, attempted murders, etc--nothing graphic). Clean!
