A Wedding Tail by Casey Griffin

She's a wedding planner and she makes a point of always being in control  This wedding isn't going well though.  The bride has gained weight and the dress doesn't fit, the parents are having a cake fight with bridal cake in the middle, and the organist is sick.  The horse the bride wants to ride away from the wedding on got sick.  And the flower girl is letting all the doves out of their cages too early.  Then the best man objects to the wedding and says he loves the bride...

St. Martin's Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 1st.

Zoe was left at the altar by her fiance, so she works hard to make everyone's wedding happen perfectly.  She can't save that one, though.  And her troubles are just beginning.

She has someone trying to kill her.  She has a man she lusts for.  Her assistant is stealing her clients.  And her competitor is playing dirty.  What a mess!

She and her adopted puppy almost get blown up.  She has suspects but no way to prove anything.  When she figures out what's going on, it looks like she might die for it...

This story has humor, embarrassing situations, and lots of sex in it.  Zoe sells sex toys as a second business.  It was a bit much for me.  I'm old fashioned would rather imagine than be told.  The killer was no one I would have imagined, so the mystery held together.  And somehow, so did Zoe and her new love.  Life might settle down for her yet.
