Pretty funny. 2nd book in series. I guessed the identity of the murderer pretty early on. Some of the characters were amusing, but some were just annoying. But the hysterical brides from hell were really great.CMB

Washington DC wedding planner Annabelle Archer is hosing a wedding at the Fairmont Hotel but she is having a problem with one of the chefs. Chef Henri came after her with a knife when she went into his kitchen to talk about changing the serving of an appetizer. Working around the problem, Annabelle awaits for the newly married couple to arrive from the church at the reception from the church when she sees Chef Henri impaled on the ice tiger. --- Georgia Rhodes, the catering executive at the Fairmont for years is afraid the general manager, who hates her, will use the murder as an attempt to fire her. Nobody is more surprised than Annabelle when Georgia is arrested because the police have evidence, a motive (they argued just before he was killed) and plenty of opportunity. She asks Annabelle to help clear her name. In the course of the investigation evidence Annabelle collects and give to he police mysteriously disappears two more employees of the Fairmont are killed and her car disappears in the valet parking lot. --- FOR BETTER OR HEARSE is an awesome Annabelle Archer mystery because everyone who knew the victim hated him so there are a lot of suspects for the heroine to eliminate. The plot is filled with humor especially during scenes when the newlyweds decide on wedding details. Annabelle¿s loyalty to Georgia is strong because her friend helped her when she first started her company even if it means putting her own life in danger. Laura Durham has a hit series on her hands. --- Harriet Klausner

For the second time Annabelle Archer has found trouble. Annabelle is a top D.C. wedding planner with the reputation of pulling off beautiful weddings among high-society. This time the wedding is at the elegant Fairmont Hotel. All falls into chaos when the widely-despised Chef Henri is found dead, impaled on the claw of a tiger ice carving. ............................ The police believe Georgia Rhodes, Fairmont's catering executive, is the culprit. Annabelle disagrees. Of course this means Annabelle is going to do some 'investigating' on her own, much to Detective Reese's dismay. And her suspect lists just keeps on growing! Anyone who has EVER met Chef Henri is glad that the man is dead. .............................. **** This story is full of vivid and colorful characters guaranteed to please one and all mystery fans. I would never have guessed that there was so much stress involved in planning someone else's wedding. But Annabelle gives us just a taste of the crazy clients that wedding planners seem to get. Readers will find this story to be fast paced and highly entertaining. I am looking forward to learning what kind of trouble the future hold for Annabelle and her quirky friends. ****
