'Til death do us part" could be closer than the bride realizes in Victoria Gilbert's tantalizing fifth Blue Ridge Library mystery."

The pursuit to acquire a rare illustrated book turns deadly, and on the eve of her upcoming wedding, library director Amy Webber is drawn into a web of treachery and betrayal that could derail her happy day--and maybe just claim her life. 

Planning a wedding can be murder--sometimes literally. At a party celebrating their upcoming nuptials, Taylorsford, Virginia library director Amy Webber and her fiancé Richard Muir discover the body of art dealer Oscar Selvaggio--a bitter rival of their host, Kurt Kendrick.

Both had been in a heated battle to purchase a rare illustrated volume created by William Morris's Kelmscott Press, so suspicion immediately falls upon Kurt. Amy knows that Kurt has a closet-full of skeletons from his past--but she can't believe he's guilty of murder. 

Amidst an avalanche of wedding preparations, Amy begins an investigation with the help of her aunt Lydia Talbot and the new mayor of Taylorsford, Sunshine "Sunny" Fields. Much to Lydia's dismay, her boyfriend, art expert Hugh Chen, becomes convinced of Kurt's guilt and launches an investigation of his own. As the case hits painfully close to home, the stakes become impossibly high--and the danger all too real.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
I fell in love with this book!! It starts with an engagement party for Amy and Richard where she is attempting to get along with his parents. This comes with a surprise visit from her mysterious brother as well. The party is going well until the couple hear a noise outside and when they go to investigate find one of the guests dead in an old shed out back. As proven in the past Amy cannot ignore a good mystery so before it is even announced as a murder she starts her research. Wedding planning may derail her for moments at a time but her determination also sends her back to looking into things. This makes for a fun time following her clues while also getting closer and closer to the wedding. It becomes a question of whether she will solve it in time to walk down the aisle. A perfect blend of sleuthing, life, and wedding fun that will keep you captivated until the sweet end that will almost have you in tears of happiness. A must read for cozy fans. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
