9780330426961: Witness at the Wedding

In the seaside town of Fethering, Carole Seddon's son is getting married to a wonderful girl - with rather odd parents. Not only do they have no interest in meddling with wedding preparations, but the mere thought of publicizing the affair frightens them beyond words. And when the father of the bride is found brutally murdered, Carole enlists Jude's help in finding an uninvited guest before the festivities become completely funereal.

From AudioFile:

"I didn't tell you there's a history of murder in my fiancée's family." An offhand remark from Carole Seddon's son before his wedding provides the perfect opening to this British mystery. Simon Brett reads that line, and many others, with a droll humor that emphasizes the comic observations in his writing. The murders are seen from the perspective of Carole Seddon, a slightly snobbish Home Office retiree who is fascinated by crime. Brett's voices reveal the edges of his characters, as Carole sourly recalls her failed marriage or an ex-con twists under questioning by Carole and her friend Jude. His voices are especially effective considering that most of his main characters are female. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
