For Whom the Wedding Bell Tolls

Author: Nancy Mehl
Publisher: Heartsong Presents Mysteries
ISBN: 978-1-60260-132-1
Genre: Inspirational/cozy mystery

Ivy Towers is finally getting married! But before she can walk down the aisle she has to plan the wedding of her dreams. Doing that isn’t as easy as she dreams, especially since she is trying to run a rare bookstore, and help the town get a jump-start on a new library.

When new resident Delaphine Shackleford steps in and offers to be Ivy’s wedding planner. Seeing this as the answer to her prayers, Ivy accepts. But Delaphine’s ideas are so off the wall wacky that Ivy doesn’t know quite what to do.

Hiring Delaphine not only drives Ivy to the brink of madness, but it also plunges her into the middle of a bizarre murder mystery.

FOR WHOM THE WEDDING BELL TOLLS is the third book in the Ivy Towers Mystery series. Readers will want to read the books in order so they won’t miss a delightful part of this story set in Winter Break, Kansas, but it is not necessary to read them all in order to understand what is happening in FOR WHOM THE WEDDING BELL TOLLS. It easily stands alone.

I enjoyed the faith message in this book, it spoke truths that I really needed to hear as I read the book. I appreciate how God sometimes uses fiction to convey to the reader what He wants them to hear. I thoroughly enjoyed FOR WHOM THE WEDDING TOLLS and the entire series. Don’t miss this cozy mysteries trio or this talented author. A recipe is included at the end. $6.95. 245 pages.
