As a bride-to-be, Josie's latest assignment is absolutely fitting--investigating wedding flowers and wedding cakes. Josie can't wait to pick out the details to make her own wedding perfect, even as her fiance Ted's outrageous mother has plans to turn the celebration into an over-the-top extravaganza. Still, the pistol-packing Lenore does come in handy when she draws her gun on Molly--a homicidal bridezilla who threatens to kill Ted unless he agrees to marry her--and saves the day. Josie thinks the worst pre-wedding disaster is behind her--until Molly is shot and Lenore becomes the prime suspect. With her mother-in-law behind bars and her wedding on hold, Josie's about to become fully engaged in finding the bridezilla killer and getting her own wedding back on track...
