Murder of the Bride

Murder of the Bride by C.S. Challinor

Why I chose this book:

A great modern cozy. Well, developed, well–plotted ending rather than a usual, dull (and dated) last chapter roundup.

Scottish Barrister Rex Graves and his fiancée Helen have traveled to Aston–on–Trent in Derbyshire, England to attend the wedding ceremony of one of Helen’s former students. The dreary gray skies and bickering families underscore Rex’s private reservations about the unlikely couple’s long–term prospects. But when people connected to the ill–fated wedding start falling faster than the gloomy May rain, Rex must determine who among the sniping wedding guests is the killer in this traditional locked–room mystery. “Murder of the Bride” is book 5 in the Rex Graves Mystery series.

“This is a well–crafted read and unlike other books that have a final reveal, Challinor gets Rex to explain his thoughts at regular intervals until we reach a logical and well–plotted conclusion.” –Crime Fiction Lover’s Top Five Books of 2011
