"Love the way Agatha quietly draws you into the story and then, bam, changes the direction!"

Julia and Barker have finally set a date for the wedding, but that doesn't mean Julia has jumped straight into the planning, even though it's only three months away. With their daughter, Jessie, backpacking around Australia for the month, Julia has no excuse not to start the preparations, but she can't bring herself to dive into the huge task.

An old school friend of Julia's moves into the cottage across the lane, and she is over the moon when she finds out that Leah happens to be a wedding planner. Julia feels like fate has delivered Leah to her, but things soon turn sour when it seems not everyone in the village is happy to have Leah back after two decades away. When Leah vanishes under suspicious circumstances days into the wedding planning, Julia quickly learns that her old friend isn't quite what she thought.

With Julia's other best friends, Roxy and Johnny, in the frame for Leah's disappearance, Julia must get to the bottom of the case. Where has Leah gone, why are Roxy and Johnny so involved, and what did Leah do that was so terrible twenty years ago?

4.5 stars

This is the fourteenth book in the Peridale Cafe mystery series by Agatha Frost.

Julia and Barker have decided on a wedding date. Then one of Julia’s old friends shows up in town and just happens to be a wedding planner. She has barely agreed to plan her wedding before going missing and believed to be dead. And there are no shortage of suspects. Two of Julia’s good friends don’t have such good memories of Leah that she does.

Really liked how this one turned out. The entire town practically hated this gal from something that happened twenty years earlier. The wrap up is one you don’t want to miss.  All the characters just keep getting better and better. It is like visiting a real hometown and seeing all your favorite people.


Loved so much about it. If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
