THE FINAL VOW by Amanda Flower
The Third Living History Museum Mystery

With the fear of losing funding for the museum and custody of her son, Kelsey Cambridge has to put a smile on her face and play nice with her ex-husband's bridezilla and the wedding planner from hell. While she has to attempt to appease the women, Kelsey will not risk safety at Barton Farm and adamantly denies putting lights in the church's steeple. Yet Jason comes rushing to Kelsey's door saying he saw lights in the steeple and, when he went to check it out, a dead woman's body on the ground. Who was attempting to string lights after hours in defiance of Kelsey's edict? Was it an accident? Or did the shadow in the window indicate murder? 

The importance of family continues to be the prominent theme of the Living History Museum Family. Above all else, Hayden is Kelsey's primary concern. Her son's life and maintaining custody of him is what makes her do things she would never otherwise do-like host her ex-husband's wedding or investigate a murder. Yet, for better or worse, she is forced to do both.

THE FINAL VOW is a character driven mystery that explores the concept of family. A multitude of motives provide readers with several viable suspects and a variety of paths to explore as preparations for the wedding march on. With drama and humor Amanda Flowers provides readers with another enjoyable read.

  12. Bride's are under a lot of stress. I get that. But people so rude and out of control are disgusting. (To me anyway.) There really is no honest reason to be that way. Rudeness is never okay under any circumstances. It's called acting in a respectful manner, towards oneself. And towards others. Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com

    1. Meant to say it's acting in a disrespectful manner towards all involved. Doesn't say much for their chance of a lasing relationship with their intended either. My sister really likes watching bridezillas. Didn't even watch half of one. It was rather disgusting that people would be so out of control. There really is no excuse for such behavior

  13. Do appreciate the chance. Am so hoping Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com
