Five years ago Amanda Pierce was excitedly preparing to marry her college sweetheart. She and Jeffrey had already battled through sickness and health, although their lives were certainly more richer than poorer as Amanda was set to inherit her father’s successful garment company.
Then Amanda disappeared the night of her bachelorette party.
In present-day New York City, Laurie Moran realizes a missing bride is the perfect cold case for her ‘Under Suspicion’ television series to investigate. By recreating the night of the disappearance at the wedding’s Florida resort with Amanda’s friends and family, Laurie hopes to find the same success solving the cases featured in the series’ first episodes. With Amanda’s former fiancé now married to a bridesmaid, and a jealous sister, playboy groomsmen, and rumors about the “beloved” bride herself, Laurie and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley quickly realize everyone has their own theory about why Amanda disappeared into thin air.
One thing is certain, whoever was behind Amanda’s vanishing plans to keep the truth hidden “til death do they part”…
This was a book club read. Apparently, it is part of a series and we didn’t know it until after we finished it which may explain why I felt the way that I did. It was a decent read. Not much of a thrilling mystery though. The writing was good, however, the story line was not that intriguing. The characters lacked depth beyond the superficial. It was really hard to connect with any of them. Lastly, the ending seemed far fetched and was not surprising; it was more reaching than anything. Again, though it may have helped if I had read the previous book in the series, but I’m not that interested.
