Marriage Is Pure Murder
by Staci McLaughlin
This is a well thought out cozy murder mystery … I enjoyed the supporting cast and family who, against their better judgement, help Dana discover clues.
This book had the perfect mix of suspense, mystery, and humor. I had a hard time putting the book down so I could get other things done.
This was a fast-paced and enjoyable cozy.
Oh goodness Marriage Is Pure Murder was charmingly delightful…This was a super fun cozy mystery to read.
~The Journey Back
I adored the dynamic between the sisters and loved getting smacked by the subtly of the relationship.
~I Read What You Write
The theme of the murder was well done. The book eased into the murder, not rushing or having the instant death like others have. I enjoy both styles but this seems to really fit the book, and characters.
I really liked the writing style because it made the story flow really well.

It definitely was fun to read and I’m happy to say a very well written ending to a story that I loved.
This is a book I recommend if you like to have a good time while you are reading a mystery…

Wedding bells are ringing at the O’Connell Organic Farm and Spa in California’s postcard-perfect Blossom Valley. The entire staff is pitching in to send one of their own down the aisle. But no one knew the nuptials could turn up so many secrets—or that marriage and murder could go hand in hand . . .
Dana Lewis is marrying Jason Forrester, a talented reporter and the love of her life. She couldn’t dream of a better venue than the farm where she works, and her friends are determined to give her the wedding of her dreams. Even her florist, Bethany Lancaster, is making sure she has just the right flowers. But Dana’s happiness wilts when she finds Bethany shot dead—and discovers her friend was a busybody with a blackmail list longer than a cathedral veil. With so many enemies, finding Bethany’s killer seems all but impossible. And when Dana herself is eyed as a suspect, she’ll have to chase down the culprit faster than she can say, “I do”—or she’ll be trading in her wedding dress for prison stripes . .
