Bailey Weggins, a journalist at a glitzy magazine in NYC, found herself involved in the wedding of college roommate Peyton Cross as a bridesmaid a couple of years ago. There she found out just what an hysterical control freak Peyton was, berating any and all for anything she perceived as deviating from her plan. Now to the present, she gets a frantic call from a fellow bridesmaid Ashley, who informs Bailey that two of the bridesmaids have died in accidents that are a bit too convenient. Is there someone bent of killing all of the bridesmaids?
Bailey is concerned enough to head off to Peyton’s catering empire in Conn to try to find answers. Peyton, staying completely in character, is none too thrilled, worrying that her “brand” will be sullied with an association with inexplicable murders. Bailey soon discovers that the wedding was not “perfect.” One of the dead girls has unexplained evidence; others overheard private conversations; and others were disgruntled with the proceedings. And Bailey, herself, has come under some threatening actions. She is making someone very uncomfortable.
The book is an easy read, mildly interesting, but can’t say it was all that compelling. The characters are pretty much cutouts. Even Weggins could do with more subtlety. She seems a little tone deaf.
