Review by Booklist Reviews

Lindsey and Sully are finally getting married. Their plan was to have a small gathering at the home of Sully's parents on one of the islands offshore from Briar Creek, the small town on the Connecticut coast where Lindsey is the librarian and Sully is a tour-boat captain. But Lindsey gave the printer the wrong invitation list, and most of the town will be in attendance! Visiting the island, the day after a Christmas party at the home of Steve Briggs, a corporate attorney and local justice of the peace, Lindsey and Sully find Briggs' body on the beach. They try to leave any investigating to the police chief, focusing instead on their wedding, which now requires finding someone to officiate in place of Briggs. But it's a small town, and the locals know that Sully and Briggs were childhood friends, so they share recollections of overheard conversations at the fateful party, each expanding the suspect pool. Fans of this series will love the scenes leading up to the wedding ceremony and the myriad ways the incidental characters have knit themselves into a supportive community.
