A Wedding and a Killing Review

A Wedding and a Killing Review
Mac Faraday and Archie Monday headed out to meet his half-brother Police Chief David O’Callaghan and Chelsea Adams at the Spencer Church for a special afternoon. Just as Mac and Archie were about to say “I do” Gnarly’s barking disrupted the nuptials.

When the men left the sanctuary to investigate, they found the body of a well-respected trustee of the church in the counting room. Later discussions led them to believe the murderer might be someone who had previously threatened the victim.

Later that same afternoon, on the other side of Spencer Mountain, two male bodies were found in a compromising position. One was Tina’s husband Chip Van Dorn, the suspect in the shooting of the church members.

Three violent deaths in one afternoon kept David and Mac busy trying to sort out clues to who was killing inhabitants of Spencer Mountain. Further complications occurred when a surprising number of honorable citizens turned themselves into the police department to give themselves up for the crime in support of a suspect many church members believed was innocent.

As Mac investigated one crime scene David continued to investigate the church shooting, and Archie Monday wondered if she and Mac would ever be able to finish their vows.

A Wedding and a Killing is the eighth novel in the popular Mac Faraday Mystery series written by Lauren Carr. The bestselling novelist is also the author of the Joshua Thornton Mysteries and the Lovers in Crime Mysteries featuring prosecutor Thornton and homicide detective Cameron Gates.

The author has created a strong sense of place on Spencer Mountain and Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. Each Mac Faraday story brings readers into Mac’s home and life as they visit recurring characters and are introduced to new men and women who populate the area, and add color to each tale.

The author’s stories are entertaining with well-rounded, appealing characters readers will wish to revisit with each installment in the series. Carr weaves humor into her mysteries and gives her main characters plenty of tender moments as they continue to bond. And bond they do; so much so that fans seeking to immerse themselves into the next story will feel like they have returned home.

A special thank you goes to the author and Acorn Book Services for providing us a complimentary copy of her book for our review. Lauren Carr’s mysteries are available on Amazon.com.
