When her friend Sue asks her to help plan her daughter Sidra's wedding to Internet millionaire Ron Davitz, Lucy Stone, who is also dealing with her kids, a rowdy dog, an overly amorous husband, and her job, gladly offers her assistance, and as she delves into the world of white lace, caterers, and floral arrangements, she is confronted with murder when the groom is found floating next to his yacht.

From Publishers Weekly:

Tinker's Cove, Maine, is the cozily evoked setting of Meier's lighthearted Lucy Stone novels, which are usually set around holidays or significant life events. Here a harried Lucy is trying to juggle children, husband and a full-time job when her best friend, Sue Finch, asks for help in planning the wedding of Sue's mother, Sidra, and Internet millionaire Ron Davitz. Lucy agrees to let the ceremony take place in her backyard gazebo. When the groom and his social-climbing mother arrive on a large yacht, tempers start flaring among the townspeople. Local fishermen are being displaced from their moorings in the harbor to make way for summer visitors in an attempt to raise much-needed revenues for the town. Davitz proves to be a singularly graceless, stereotypical computer nerd, but when he's found floating dead in the water, suspicion quickly focuses on an old flame of the bride. Lucy once more finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, and at first she fears that Sue, or Sue's temperamental husband, might have done something drastic to get rid of a potential father-in-law he despised. In a leisurely paced investigation, Lucy perseveres through various irritations to dig up the truth. Despite the obvious pall cast by the murder of the groom, Meier manages to pull off a happy ending, replete with a charming wedding in which her fans will rejoice.

From Booklist:

On a summer morning, reporter Lucy Stone learns that her friend Sue's daughter will marry a dot-com millionaire at Sue's Maine home. Then the prospective in-laws appear and try to take over the wedding, the groom drowns, and Sue finds herself the leading suspect. Lucy rushes to the rescue. In this eighth Lucy Stone mystery, Meier takes well-worn plot elements-- small-town tensions, in-law troubles--and buffs them into a fresh yarn. Characters and their interactions are realistic and dryly humorous, the Maine coast provides an evocative backdrop, and the short course on dot-com business is enlightening on its own and seamlessly incorporated into the story. An amiable cozy for fans of the late Anne George. John Rowen
