Cover Price: $5.99 Kindle

Bridesmaids Revisited is the ninth novel in the Ellie Haskell Mystery series by Dorothy Cannell. In this installment, Ellie receives a letter from her Grandmother Sophia’s childhood friends telling her that Sophia wants to get in touch with her. That would be great, except for the fact that Sophia is long dead. Against her better judgment, Ellie decides to visit her Grandmother’s old friends and ends up uncovering long-buried family secrets, and the identification of a murderer. These accomplishments are not without some peril, however, and Ellie and the Bridesmaids are put in danger throughout.

Cannell is a good storyteller, and makes her characters come alive. The storyline, however, is a bit hard to relate to, especially for readers who shun the paranormal and laugh at séances and other similar goings-on. It’s all in fun, though, and this cozy novel is fast-moving, easy to read, and suitable for all ages. Even though Bridesmaids Revisited is on the light side, there is building suspense, and, since Ellie is likeable, readers will likely not put down the novel until the good characters are safely out of imminent danger that occurs in several scenarios. The writing is good, and the story is laced with plenty of humor.

Bridesmaids Revisited is not the best book in the series (there are 13 so far), but fans won’t want to miss any of the installments that include Ellie and her adventures. Since the novel is short and can be read in a minimum amount of time, it’s perfect to take on an airplane ride or camping trip.
