I imagine myself as one of Pepper Pomeroy,'s Perfect Proposals clients. Perfect Proposals is a business where Pepper organizes and sets up the perfect proposal for a soon to be engaged couple, Pepper tries to suit the perfect wedding proposal to the couple by their likes and personality. This second book in this series had me dreaming of my own wedding proposal, mine was special but paled in comparison to one of Pepper's Perfect Proposals.

Pepper's sister, Felicity is getting married and Felicity and Pepper and their mother are on the search for the perfect wedding dress. After visiting the fourth and final Bridal shop, Pepper with her mother and sister in toe walk in to a empty bridal shop. Pepper soon ventures though out the shop and finds the back door open to an alley and a dumpster. Pepper is shocked to discover the owner of the Bridal shop, Eva Sitting against the dumpster stabbed with a knife.

So shocked by the sight of another murder Pepper vows to help find who killed Eva and with the theft of valuable wedding dresses from the bridal shop. All the while Pepper's business is booming with many "Perfect Proposals" in the works and a budding new relationship with Gage. She needs to needs to watch her back, while on the search for the perfect wedding gown for her sister Pepper soon discovers that the killer is a lot closer than she thinks.

This was a very quick read, with a action packed story that hooked me in from the cover of  this book, it hooked me in so much that I  finished it in only a day, a first for me. That's how much this story hooked me in and that is owed to the talent of the writer, Nancy.J.Parra. A one of a kind mystery series with a wedding theme chalked with proposals that a girl can only dream of.It's easy to imagine yourself as one of Pepper's Perfect Proposals minus the murder. I loved the relationship between Detective Murphy and Pepper, one of the first times in a cozy mystery where a detective and ameteur sleuth seems to have a father-daughter relationship. A fun filled edge of your seat mystery with a almost perfect murder if not for Pepper of Perfect Proposals to save the day and find the killer.

  16. With having to go Wedding Dress shopping for not only my own two daughters but also two future daughter in laws... I know exactly how stressful it can be. Add to that a dead body and I'm sure all of my girls would have just said the heck with it, we'll wear jeans. LOL

    I'd love to add this book to my home library. NoraAdrienne (at) gmail (dot) com
