Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is.
With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather's already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather's sure things can't get worse—until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather's long-lost mother shows up.
Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve. Instead of wedding bells, she might be hearing wedding bullets, but she's determined to bring the bad guys to justice if it's the last thing she does . . . and this time, it just might be.
I love audio books. In the author’s notes on the audio version of Joe Hill’s NOS4A2, he talks about how the first stories we learn are read to us. I listen to audio books when I’m in the car, shopping, and playing Candy Crush.
In typical book blogger fashion, I already have a tbr shelf just for audio books. Reviewing them is a bit more difficult, because I don’t take notes and I don’t always know how to spell the characters names. So these reviews will be a little different from my book reviews.
I don’t know if I’m ready to say goodby to Heather Wells, but I’m glad she and Cooper get their happily ever after… well, in their way.
This time instead of just solving a murder in Death Dorm, Heather is in the midst of planning her wedding to the scrumptious Cooper. In the way: her mother is back. The same mother who ran off with Heather’s former manager, and all of her money. Heather also has to deal with some over zealous body guards, Gavin trying one last time at her affection, helicopter parents, Cooper’s insane sisters, and the possibility that someone or someones want her dead.
So, not exactly new territory for the former pop star. 😉 And as usual, Heather is surrounded by her awesome friends and family. Such a good book, but man oh man, will I miss Heather Wells now that Cabot has ended the series (although really, she could pick it up anytime in the future!).
Sandy Rustin has narrated the other books in this series and I really love her voice. I’ve enjoyed listening to the last 2 of the Heather Wells books on audio, and I would definitely listen to more books narrated by Rustin!
