Veils and Vengeance (Wedding Planner Mysteries #2)

Rachelle J

Wedding planner Adri Pyper has been looking forward to her trip to Hawaii for the destination wedding of her clients Malia and Kyle.  It’s not all leis and last-minute arrangements though, when she discovers the body of a murdered woman while out snorkeling. On top of this she has to deal with a threatening fellow hotel guest and then there’s Kyle’s gorgeous brother, Jon, who keeps persuading her into dates.  And last but not least Malia’s cousin, Luke Stetson, who has been angling for a date with Adri for the past year arrives…


Any reader who loves mysteries with a dose of romance, or romance with a dose of mystery, should not miss this book!  The author seamlessly combines both elements into a sweet, exciting story, excellently written from start to finish.  In fact, the beautiful Hawaiian setting is portrayed so well that one almost feels like one’s been on a tropical vacation by the end of the novel.  The characters are real and likeable (mainly), and Ms. Christensen will have her readers swooning over the two love interests and guessing as to the identity of the murderer until the last page.  And, as an extra rather unique bonus for crafty and foodie readers, at the beginning of each chapter there is either a craft idea or a recipe from Adri’s blog, which is actually a real live website as well.  What more could one ask for?  The next in the series?
