Caravaning around the country with her husband, taking jobs as a marriage celebrant along the way sounds like a lovely way to live, I know part of me would love to be able to do that. But for Daphne and her husband John, their current stop is not looking like a very relaxing stay.
When Daph meets the bride and groom and their family, she is not too excited about working with them, but she will do her very best to give them a wedding they will remember. And it certainly is that, when not minutes after the ceremony, the new husband is found murdered in the pool.
From here on Daph and her husband become embroiled in finding out who killed the groom and why, as they uncover secrets from the families past, they find themselves in danger too. But nothing will stop Daph from finding out the truth. There were plenty of twists and turns along the way to discovering the culprit.
This was a fun read, I think if I were getting married, I’d want Daph to be my celebrant as she puts a lot of work into finding the perfect thing to say. And if anything were to go wrong, Daph would be sure to sniff out the mystery. I hope their next stop is less exciting. This is the first book in the Daphne Jones Mysteries, so I imagine Daph will have plenty of more crimes to solve.
