Gown With the Wind by Stephanie Blackmoore-Great Escapes Tour

About the book
Professional wedding planner Mallory Shepard knows her job is challenging under any circumstances. But when the groom is your ex and someone invites murder, there may never be another tomorrow . . .
Mallory’s fine—really—handling the wedding arrangements for her ex, Keith. But his fiancĂ©e, Becca, has at the last minute decided to switch from a Japanese-cherry-blossom theme to a Gone with the Wind theme. She wants to honor her ailing grandmother, who owns an impressive collection of GWTW memorabilia—and who is fiercely at odds with the groom’s mother over the nuptial plans.
But among other complications, Becca gets into a fight with an old childhood rival over a replica Scarlett O’Hara wedding gown. She wins the dress—but soon becomes a murder suspect when the other woman is found dead in Becca’s swimming pool. And it’s up to Mallory to solve the mystery behind this unhappy occasion, before a different kind of civil war breaks out . . .
And a few others said
I LOVE these characters . . . They are so colorfully written and have such amazingly created personalities.
~The Montana Bookaholic
I so enjoyed the characters, lovely setting, and the twisting plot with so many unexpected surprises.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

The pace never lets up and kept me turning pages faster and faster as jaw dropping events filled the story.

And I thought
Who doesn't love a wedding?  But getting this one off without a hitch or murder will be quite the challenge.
 This was a fun read!

I really enjoyed the story/plot.  

Mallory and her sister Rachel are fun and dependable characters even with all the chaos going on with a couple of  brides.  One bride needing 'a quickie divorce' so she can get married.   All the while her soon to be ex is trying to get married as well.
And then there is a 1 year old murder. 
A baby shower to plan a along with a theatre opening and Mothers Day Brunch .
Just when things calm down a bit with all the Bride and
Future Mother In Law'zillas' a body is found in bride #1's
pool and she is wearing bride #1's Gone With Wind inspired wedding dress!  
Next on the agenda..find new dress..change the theme again and find the murderer!

So did bride #1 do the pushing, then again it might been anyone.  There is no shortage of folks with weird grudges  and attitudes and personal agendas.

Even with all the drama and chaos and crime this one
was a great read that is written as a stand alone.

If you love a good cozy check this one out especially if you like and enjoyed animals making mischief and being key 'players' in the plot.

I especially enjoyed 'Pickles' the Maine Coon Cat that 
appears on the cover.

I am looking forward to book 3!
