At a murder mystery–themed wedding reception on Georgia’s picturesque Peach Cove Island, the bride is doing an awfully good job playing dead . . .

Marygene Brown always figured she’d marry her childhood sweetheart, Alex Myers, not cater his wedding. But the Peach Diner could use the exposure. Most of the island is showing up—although more for the role-playing murder game at the reception than for the widely loathed bridezilla, Lucy Carmichael. Marygene may have to smile through the festivities, but Mama doesn’t have to hold her peace—especially since only Marygene can hear her mother’s ghost. Mama says she sees an aura of darkness around the wedding.

So when Marygene finds Lucy lying beside the wedding cake, buried in batter, with no pulse, it looks like Mama called it. This is no game. And when the bride’s body simply vanishes, it’s up to Marygene and her best friend Betsy (cousin to the groom and no fan of the bride) to solve a real-life mystery—with a little help from Mama’s sassy spirit . . .

Includes Seven Recipes from Marygene’s Kitchen!

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Oh boy talk about being a suspect! Marygene is determined to be a better person when she is asked to cater the wedding of her childhood sweetheart. The bride is totally awful and most cannot stand her but due to their love for Alex they go along. Part of the reception is supposed to be a murder mystery game so when the bride is found lying dead in front of the cake at first they think its part of the game. Then they cannot find a pulse. As if that is not bad enough the body goes missing. Reeling from this turn of events Marygene and Betsy are finally allowed to leave only to wreck on the way after an attempt is made on Marygene's life landing them in the hospital. The clues just grow from there mixed in with lots of emotions as it all plays out. Makes for a great cozy once it all combines keeping you hooked until the very end. A highly recommended read. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
