Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Annabelle Archer series special?

A - The Annabelle Archer wedding planner mysteries are based on my 20 plus years of planning society weddings in Washington, DC. That means I've seen tons of crazy things happen, and I've worked with lots of colorful characters. I bring that light-hearted sense of fun and zany characters into the novels. A lot of the humorous details I include in my books actually happened at my weddings! And since the books are about weddings, there is plenty of food, décor, and behind the scenes details.

The Annabelle Archer books are fast-paced cozy mysteries featuring a female protagonist with a little romance and comedy thrown in. You'll find the series focuses on the murder mystery and amateur sleuth genre overall, with a jewelry heist caper and ghost story in the mix to keep things interesting. Plus, Richard acquired a Yorkie in Review To A Kill, so the latest books are also for fans of animal or dog mysteries.

I'm working on an Annabelle cookbook to share the recipes for all the culinary treats mentioned in the books. Richard is a caterer, after all, and he loves food and cooking! So, in a way these books are also culinary mysteries. I'm working on another "between the brides" novella set during the Christmas holidays, and soon the series will take Annabelle and her team overseas!

Q - In what order should I read the books?

A - You won't be lost if you read the books in this cozy mystery series out of order but if you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the following sequence:

- Better Off Wed
- For Better Or Hearse
- Dead Ringer-A Novella
- Review To A Kill
- Death on the Aisle
- Night of the Living Wed-A Novella

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?

A - Because the Annabelle Archer cozy mystery series is fun, light, and the perfect escape or beach reading. Better Off Wed has hit number one in the Kindle store and the series has hit the top ten bestsellers list on Kindle for Cozy Mysteries, Amateur Sleuths, and Women Sleuths. Plus, the first book in the series won the Agatha Award for the Best First Novel.

Thanks for reading!

This was a cute story but it wasn't as attention grabbing as the othrr books. I think it was too short to develop a good story.

DELIGHTFUL! Wonderful cleverly written novella starring the fabulous Wedding Belles crew (meaning Annabelle, Kate & their associates who work with them on every wedding) we’ve grown to love! Great mystery that will keep your attention from start to finish with lots of action & fun along the way. Excellent entertainment!

STORY-LINE NIGHT OF THE LIVING WED BY LAURA DURHAM: Annabelle and her crew received a gift stay at a luxurious resort. Ready for a relaxing vacation after a summer of weddings, they are ready to relax and rejuvenate. Beautiful with luxury galore, the only draw back: it seems haunted; and some of the ghosts are not so nice. Determined to discover the cause of the moans, groans, gun shots, and many nightly activities, Annabelle takes on another mystery. With the resort manager and staff worried the resort will close due to deceased reservations, and an on-line blog exploiting the ghostly activity, Annabelle thinks someone's trying to close the resort. Come along with Annabelle and the gang as they investigate the ghostly happenings. My mystery book review of Night Of The Living Wed follows. CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT: Laura Durham filled Night Of The Living Wed with ghosts, mystery, suspense, snarky repartee, humor, and fun galore. With a cast of wonderfully funny characters, I laughed out loud as they investigated the activity. It's hard for me to pick my favorite character; Annabelle's team's filled with people who are from all walks of life. Including the dog was a wonderful stroke, what a pampered cutie. Every good mystery must have an antagonist; Durham gave us two in this funny tale of mystery and ghosts. The web blogger who's exploiting the ghostly visitations on the internet and Brianna, rival wedding planner; you will love to hate Brianna. How did she and the blogger happen to be at the same resort as Annabelle? Including two very large leather and chain garbed male florist, who are Christians, was a stroke of genius. I laughed until tears ran as I pictured them in pajamas covered in wedding rings. Along with the feminine Fern who's more feminine than most women, the droll Richard, and the ready for anything Kate, this crew's hilarious. I love a well-written mystery which includes humor; this book fits the bill. Who is the person instigating the ghostly happenings; is it an employee, the owner, the blogger, the wedding planning rival, or someone else? Then again, it may all be real! The only way to find out is to read Night Of The Living Wed. MY OPINION: I found Night Of The Living Wed funny, entertaining, and a joy to read. As well as, characters which are well-developed, prose skillfully written, hilarious comedy, and entertaining intrigue. The pace is just fast enough to keep the reader wondering what is really going on at the resort. As well as, revealing all the answers in a timely manner, Durham's scenes transition smoothly without starts and stops. Her descriptions of the resort and ghostly visitations are so vivid, I could see the resort and activity in my mind's eye. In Night Of The Living Wed, I found Durham's writing clear and easy to follow. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend. NIGHT OF THE LIVING WED RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4 FINALLY, PLEASE NOTE: Additionally, I received this book from the author and chose to voluntarily review the book with an honest mystery suspense book review. Lastly, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinions.
