Summary from GoodReads:
Maddie Springer is finally walking down the aisle with the man of her dreams. And she's got the perfect wedding planner to pull it all off in style. Well, perfect, that is, until the woman winds up dead - murdered in buttercream icing. Suddenly Maddie's hope of a dream wedding melts faster than an ice sculpture at an outdoor buffet. And when her groom-to-be is assigned the detective in charge of the case, there goes any chance of a honeymoon. Unless, of course, Maddie can find the murderer before her big day. With the help of her fellow fashionista friends, Maddie vows to unveil the cold-blooded killer. Is it the powerful ex-husband, the hot young boy toy, a secret lover from the past, or a billionaire bridezilla on the warpath? As the wedding day grows closer, tempers flare, old flames return, and Maddie's race to the altar turns into a race against time.

My Review:
Another great installment in the series. The characters are at the peak of entertainment, from Maddie’s side of the family, Ramirez’s side of the family, and all the others in between. Maddie’s daddy is so excited to attend the wedding and he is planning on wearing his very best. And you won’t believe what the groom’s side has planned for the event as well as far as dress. Luckily Maddie is so involved with the murder, she doesn’t seem to mind. Or does she?

Maddie is able to get Felix, the reporter, to help her investigate the case again. Of course, she’s trying to do this without the knowledge of her fiance (Ramirez) who is the lead detective on the case. Wait until you find out the deal she makes with him concerning her involvement in investigating the case.

Another fun read!!
