Bossy, impulsive, yet hopelessly romantic, Agatha is dreading the upcoming marriage of her ex-husband, James Lacey. Although she has set her sights on a handsome and beguiling new Frenchman, she can't quite stop obsessing about James. Her best intentions to move on with her life are put on hold when James's young bride is shot to death just minutes before saying "I do" and Agatha is named the prime suspect.

Agatha's sleuthing sidekick Toni stands ready to help find the real killer, but the case proves trickier than ever. Will her name be cleared, or has the outrageous Agatha finally had her last romp?

Twenty books into the series, and I still can’t get enough!

This book focuses on James Lacey’s wedding to Felicity Bross-Tilkington (where does Beaton come up with these names? They are always a mouthful!).

I loved seeing James get his come-uppance! Even before his young fiancée was killed, he already realized that he had made a mistake and admitted same to Agatha. I think James and Agatha will never get each other out of their systems. Unfortunately, this gives Agatha a motive for murder and she has to clear her name. I really enjoyed how Toni worked alongside Agatha to solve the case.

Agatha wouldn’t be Agatha unless she was man-hungry, and here she is in this one all gaga over a dashing Frenchman, Sylvan Dubois. It was amusing at the beginning of the story when James thought that Agatha was following him and Felicity on their holiday. Agatha also battles her inner demons: her jealousy of Toni’s youth and beauty, and being down at James moving on. The mystery itself was a little over the top and a bit convoluted. However, as always, I find this series a fun escape and still really enjoyed it. And the ending? I can’t wait to see what happens next!
