Say Yes to Death is about as light and airy as butter cream frosting and was a sweet break from the pulse pounding, hard hitting murder mysteries.

Every bit as good as its predecessors, McBrides creativity and knack for story telling are about as captivating as the bride and groom’s first dance. A fast read, you’ll quickly devour this novel. Ladies who enjoy a good gossip, or crave a front seat to a murder mystery will enjoy this one. You might not want to read this one during wedding season though!
