GoodReads Summary:
Adrielle Pyper knows how to plan a wedding, and she's especially good at pleasing bridezillas. But when her biggest client and best friend is murdered just three days before the wedding, Adri's world falls apart. She moves to the resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho, and starts from scratch. Thanks to Adri's impeccable taste and unique style, she lands two celebrity clients, and her business seems headed for success—until someone vandalizes the specialty wedding dresses she imported from overseas. Adri must race to uncover the secret hidden within the yards of satin and lace before she becomes the next victim.
With a delightful blend of mystery, toe-curling kisses, humor, and spine-tingling thrills, Diamond Rings are Deadly Things will keep you turning pages long into the night.

My Review:
5-stars! This was an exciting and fast-paced cozy mystery! Adrielle and Lorea are trying so hard to get their businesses going well. They have two big weddings to handle on the books. One has to stay a secret and one looks to be a huge blow-out with the worst Bridezilla of them all. Everything depends on these weddings going off well or their businesses are going down the drain. Financially, it all hinges on the designer wedding gowns they got on the cheap!

The gowns are gorgeous, but then several gowns disappear, including Bridezilla's gown! Adrielle's best friend is murdered. Diamonds are missing. And Adri is hiding a gown under a quilt. One thing after another. Try to keep up! Highly recommended for readers who like the crazy pace and zany goings-on of the cozy mystery.

I had one small beef with this book. Adri had a neighbor who was mentioned in passing named Lily Rowan. That is the name of a major character from Rex Stout's Nero Wolf series of mysteries. It bothered me that Ms. Christensen used the name. It was just sort of thrown in there, too.

This was a BookBub acquisition. My honest review is offered without compensation of any kind. All opinions are fully my own.
