A Wedding and A Killing ~ Review

A Wedding and A Killing
A Mac Faraday Mystery 8
By Lauren Carr

Mac Faraday and Archie Monday are prepared to have a secret wedding one without crowds and fuss, but a murder in the church puts everything on hold.

As the investigation progresses long held secrets are brought to light - secrets that raise more questions.  As rumors swirl about the victim Mac is determined to solve this case and return to the altar and say I do!

A Wedding and A Killing is perfect for fans of a good mystery. And as an added bonus there is A Gnarly Mystery Short - The Gnarly Rehabilitation Program.  This short is just too funny.  Gnarly (Mac's German Shepherd) is dognapped.  And Gnarly has the dognappers begging Mac to come get Gnarly.

I totally love Gnarly in both the short and the feature book.  Gnarly is the one who discovered the victim and he really keeps the story interesting with his antics.

I was provided a copy of this book through PUYB in exchange for my honest review and my participation in this tour.

About A Wedding and a Killing:
When Mac Faraday decides to do something, there’s no stopping him … even murder!

Not wanting to wait until their big day to start their life of wedded bliss, Mac Faraday and his lady love, Archie Monday, decide to elope to the little church where his ancestors had all married—along the tranquil shore of Deep Creek Lake. However, before they can say, “I do,” the sanctuary erupts into chaos when Gnarly finds a dead body in the church office.

As they dive into the investigation, Mac and his team discover more questions than answers. What kind of person walks into a church and shoots a man for no apparent reason? How do you solve the murder of a man who has no enemies in the world? Which of the seemingly kind-hearted church members is really a cold-blooded killer?

Then, there is the all-important question, how long do Mac Faraday and his lady love have to wait to get married?
