I've heard of bride zilla but mom zilla, That is what you have in store when you read Matrimony Meltdown. Zoe, animal lover and rescuer and owner of her new business Zoe's Zoo where she and a few dedicated employee's rescue stray animals and Zak a software developer who is in deep water when someone is out to get him and sneaking into his office when his family and wedding planners are staying at their home before Zoe and Zak's wedding day.

Mother Zimmerman, Zak's mother has turned into momzilla, taking over with the planning of their wedding by inviting everyone to the house two weeks before the nuptials. The assistant to the wedding planner, Julianna is  found floating dead in the pool. The police think it's accidental but Zoe has other ideas. Meanwhile Zoe is about to pull her hair out with her soon to be mother-in-law and her only escape seems to be her best friend Ellie's boathouse, where Ellie tries to reassure Zoe that everything will be okay and at the same time having struggles of her own.

Zoe soon has the clues to point to that it was indeed murder and with the amount of people that are staying in the house it could be anyone of them and Zoe along with the police talk to everyone of them to try to reveal a killer in her midst. But looks can be deceiving and things are not always as they seem as Zoe soon finds out and escape from the killers clutches is the first order of business before Zoe finds herself in hot water.

My favorite of the Zoe Donovan Mysteries I have read so far. A must for any fan of  wedding themed cozy mysteries like myself.   Edge of your seat thrills. Kathi's writing is like a breath of fresh air and before you know it your finished reading. Action packed and full of suspense and with a unexpected turn of events when the killer is revealed. Not knowing or not suspecting who a killer is is so refreshing to me and the the element of surprise had me loving this book even more. Spend the day reading Matrimony Meltdown and you won't be disappointed.
