Pastry chef Kate McGuire is loving life on the laid-back island of Coral Cay, Florida. As junior partner in a bakery renowned for luscious desserts--especially her cookies--life is pretty sweet. So when an old friend arrives and announces a spur-of-the-moment beach wedding, that's just the icing on the wedding cake.
But the groom vanishes right as a television crew descends on the town to film a hot, new realty show. Is there a connection? Is her friend Desiree somehow involved? Or did groom Judson simply get cold feet? The bride and groom were paired better than warm cookies and cold milk, so Kate doesn't buy it.
As the show's cast runs amok on the island and the investigation into Judson's disappearance heats up, Kate and her pal Maxi, along with town dog Oliver, will brave the rambunctious world of reality TV and a wedding weekend gone awry, in an all-out effort to find the missing groom.
This is the third book in the A Cookie House mystery series by Eve Calder.
This was a fun and fascinating book to follow.
Kate’s friend is getting married on the beach but when the groom doesn’t show for the wedding, they begin to think something may haver happened to him. There are all kinds of twists and turns in this that you won’t see coming. I was surprised so many times reading this that I couldn’t figure out what was really going on. It was almost as if the bride was being catfished since her opinion of the groom and his motivations didn’t go along the same thoughts as his business parter and kids.
Well-plotterd, well cast and filled with all the things I like to follow in a mystery story. I definitely recommend this one highly.
Definitely pick this up if you are a cozy mystery lover.
