From the Back Cover
Five years ago Amanda Pierce was excitedly preparing to marry her college sweetheart. She and Jeffrey had already battled through sickness and health, although their lives were certainly more richer than poorer as Amanda was set to inherit her father’s successful garment company. Then Amanda disappeared the night of her bachelorette party.
In present-day New York City, Laurie Moran realizes a missing bride is the perfect cold case for her ‘Under Suspicion’ television series to investigate. By recreating the night of the disappearance at the wedding’s Florida resort with Amanda’s friends and family, Laurie hopes to find the same success solving the cases featured in the series’ first episodes. With Amanda’s former fiancé now married to a bridesmaid, and a jealous sister, playboy groomsmen, and rumors about the “beloved” bride herself, Laurie and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley quickly realize everyone has their own theory about why Amanda disappeared into thin air. One thing is certain, whoever was behind Amanda’s vanishing plans to keep the truth hidden “til death do they part”…
This was Liberty’s book for February as part of the #12booksin12months reading challenge.
Why did you choose to read this book?: It had an exciting back cover. Murder mystery, but a little bit ‘Hollywood’. It gave the lure of suspense but without being too hard hitting. Also, really short chapters….so an easy one to pick up and put down!
What did you like most about this book?: Lots of characters, lots of potential suspects. It follows a rich family so it’s a little bit fantastical. It was a nice light read…took me a while to get into it, but then I flew through the last third.
Anything you didn’t like about this book?: Not really, it was fun, with young characters. It was a nice light read after a previous heavy, scary book!
