Planning weddings can be murder. But stumbling across dead bodies usually isn't on the itinerary. Can a wedding planner use her skills to discover who's killing her clients?

Society wedding planner Annabelle Archer is no stranger to wedding day stress, but a dead body at her latest fete takes the cake. When suspicion falls on her best friend and caterer Richard Gerard, she knows she must find the real culprit before his career is ruined along with her reputation for solving problems. But it's no easy feat since the slain mother-of-the-bride was the most hated socialite in the city. As Annabelle navigates DC's powerful social scene to unmask the culprit, there's no telling how many more victims the killer will claim or if Annabelle and her friends will be among them.

Better Off Wed is the first book in the Annabelle Archer cozy mystery series. If you like charming characters, fast-paced comedy, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the wild world of weddings, then you'll love Laura Durham's Agatha award-winning mystery.

  • Great read with humor!

    I loved how quickly the mystery moved along. I definitely had laughable moments where my husband would look at me funny from across the room. The jokes were great but not overly obvious to the point where it just isn't funny anymore. This is a book where it kept me in a good mood and would read again and again.
