When a member of the mob shows up on her elderly neighbor's wedding day, Annabelle is surprised. But she's even more surprised when she learns the truth about Leatrice's past. To add insult to injury, Annabelle is one of the bridesmaids and everyone keeps asking her about her wedding plans.

With wise guys on the loose, colorful hairdresser Fern dressed as a priest, and guests dropping from the heat, suddenly bridezillas don't seem so bad! Can Annabelle and her crew get the bride down the aisle before someone sleeps with the fishes?

About the Author

Laura Durham has been writing for as long as she can remember and has been plotting murders since she began planning weddings in Washington, DC over 20 years ago. The idea behind the Annabelle Archer Wedding Planner mysteries and the first book in the series, BETTER OFF WED, was born from the overwhelming desire to murder a particularly unpleasant mother of the bride (or MOB). Once Laura realized that killing her would be bad for business, she decided to do away with her on paper.

BETTER OFF WED won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel and two other novels in the series followed. After taking a hiatus from publishing to have two children and plan 500 or so weddings, Laura returned to the mystery world in 2017 with a new Annabelle novella, DEAD RINGER, as well as two new novels. Laura continues to plan a few weddings per year while working on more books in the Annabelle Archer Wedding Planner mystery series.

When she isn't writing or wrangling brides, Laura loves traveling with her family, stand up paddling, and reading obsessively. Visit me at www.lauradurham.com for the latest scoop!

Absolutely one of my favorite Annabelle Archer mysteries! Laura Durham never fails to entertain me with Annabelle and her zany friends. I absolutely devour each book in the Wedding Belles series. I am so excited that Annabelle’s wedding is sure to be the highlight of one of the upcoming books in the series. After all, anything can happen at a wedding when Annabelle and Kate are involved. :)

It was fun to read about the crew going through another wedding, but this one being a little more personal to all of them. I loved that all of them had a hand in the day, even with Hermes getting his hair done. It was short and sweet and left off in the perfect spot for Anna Belle to start planning her own day.

This is one of my favorite series! I love wedding planner Annabelle and the antics she gets involved in. Having a member of the wedding party that comes with a big mafia family is right up there with things to be dealt with carefully. I love the story and the series.

This novella was a quick, fun read. If you've ever read the other books in this series, you know what crazy antics Annabelle and her crew get up to at a wedding. Enjoyed it very much and can't wait for the next one.

Godfather of the Bride is a hilarious, laugh-out-loud, sweet cozy read. The characters are zany and fun, and Annabelle and Reese are wonderful together. This particular story has an unexpected guest from the mob and a secret past included in her friend Leatrice's wedding. I loved this book and cannot wait for the next book in the series. I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book that I received for no charge or obligation.

Read, laugh, read more, laugh more, read more, laugh harder and wipe tears from your eyes! Laura is a true master of storytelling. The reader can easily visualize the characters, the settings, and what is happening in the story. Her stories are chock full of those crazy, zany, outrageous characters we can’t get enough of and this story is no different! It is Leatrice’s wedding day and Annabelle, much to her chagrin, is not in charge! The story reveals a lot of Leatrice’s past...and it is crazier than she is! A wonderful read as always!

The only bad thing about this book is that the fun is over too quickly! Annabelle’s friend and neighbor, Leatrice is getting married and Annabelle is not in charge. She still has a schedule in her pocket and her hands full with all her off beat friends helping with and participating in the wedding. And how can one old acquaintance of Leatrice’s mess up this perfectly planned event? You will have to read to find out! If you aren’t a fan already, you will be by the end of this laugh out loud story. Join in the fun with Wedding Belles!
