She makes wedding dreams come true. But when a dead body crashes the ceremony, she'll show off a whole new set of skills...

Annabelle Archer is an expert at wedding day disaster control. With preparations underway for her latest lavish ceremony, she knew it was only a matter of time before the groomzilla had a breakdown. But when the drag queen officiant is found strangled to death with her own boa, even Annabelle admits there are some things not even wedding planners can prevent.

Determined to sniff out the killer, she attends the memorial service to probe for clues and catwalk rivalries. After a second queen drops dead and Annabelle's go-to hairstylist is named the prime suspect, she fears there's something more dangerous at play than a dressing room feud. With her friends in jeopardy, Annabelle must track down the murderer before another queen struts her stuff for the last time.

Groomed for Murder is the eighth standalone book in the hilarious Annabelle Archer Wedding Planner Mystery series. If you like larger-than-life characters, hare-brained whodunits, and an insider's look at glamorous high-society weddings, then you'll love Laura Durham's award-winning series.

STORY-LNE: Annabelle Archer, the wedding planner to the rich, latest wedding, includes a gay groomzilla who would put the worse bridezilla to shame; as well as groomsmaids, and a drag queen officiant. Finding the officiant strangled just tops off her day. When the deaths keep coming, Annabelle and friends must try to solve the mystery before the next body falls. My book reviews follow. CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT As always Laura Durham created an intriguing storyline, fascinating characters, and a unique "whodunit." Her characters are wonderfully original and interesting as she gives us a glimpse into the world of wedding planning, murder solving, and the gay and drag queen world. Annabelle's gang of friends reappear in each novel as Laura Durham enlarges their personalities and traits. I think it would be a toss-up to name my favorite character; they are all "over the top" and hoots. Durham's plotting is excellent, and as always, the storyline has a lot of action from a gay wedding, suspense, the drag scene, to Annabelle's romance with the "hunky hot cop." She had me continuously laughing as I raced through this tale. With scenes which transition smoothly and writing which flowed well, Durham created an entertaining storyline. By holding the identity of the culprit close to her chest, Durham's dramatic ending to this hilarious tale is a huge surprise. MY OPINION: Every time I pick up an Annabelle Archer novel, I know I am in store for snarky comments, a fast pace, laughs galore, and a mystery which will keep me enthralled from start to finish. Each book keeps getting better and better as Durham creates the story of Annabelle and her gay friends solving murder after murder. Annabelle's love life has expanded as have the storylines. I love each character; I feel I have come to know them personally and have become involved in their lives. I look forward to the next Annabelle Archer mystery novel and would not hesitate to buy this tale of murder and mayhem for myself or a friend. GROOMED FOR MURDER RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4 ALSO, PLEASE NOTE: Additionally, I received a copy from the author. I chose to review with honest romance book reviews voluntarily. Lastly, reviews of any novel are dependent on the author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews online and under my name, are my opinions.

I love watching this cast of characters grow. I'm a little mad at Richard right now, but I know we'll make up and I love the romance storyline

Seriously, can I give this one ten gold stars? I love this author, and I love this series! The Wedding Belles never disappoint! This time the wedding has a sweet groom and a groomzilla and a Cher impersonator for a justice of the peace. When a member of the wedding party turns up dead Annabelle and her team are once again thrust into a murder mystery. The book had me hooked in the first ten words! I couldn’t put it down...and couldn’t stop laughing! Truly a great read!

Annabelle and her sidekick Kate have a big wedding with 2 grooms, 1 of whom is a groomzilla. During setup Annabelle discovers a body. Fortunately they can move the venue quickly. But who killed the officiant? I enjoy the characters in this series. They’re unique and amusing but hard workers. I proofed and read an early copy of the book.

I received a free book for an honest review. Annabelle had almost finished setting up for an elaborate wedding when a body necessitated a quick move – to the mansion next door. The body belonged to the drag queen officiant for the wedding. Boy did they move quickly to keep the wedding from dissolving into tears and tantrums. Join Annabelle and her zany crew as they try to solve the murder before too many more bodies pile up. This book will NOT DISAPPOINT if you are looking for light reading and more than a few laughs.

I've read all of the books in this series and I think this was my favorite yet! I loved reading about the team working with a Groomzilla for a change of pace, and that the officiant was the one to end up murdered this time. Also love seeing the progression of Annabelle and the Detective's relationship!
