When Belfast (Bel for short) was in high school, her best friend went missing after a party on the river.
The investigation was long and intense, but Amy Mitchell was never found.
Now, many years later, after a scandalous mistake ended her career as a New York City chef, Bel is working as a caterer at her parents’ wedding hall back in her hometown. But Bel’s new life is turned upside down when some of Amy’s belongings surface in the river, and the investigation into her disappearance is reopened. Bel knows just who to ask for help finding Amy after all this time—the groom in the wedding she’s currently planning is a private detective. But when he mysteriously dies at his own wedding, Bel realizes that if she’s ever going to find the truth, she’ll have to do it herself.
What I Thought:
This was the first Belfast McGrath mystery that I have read and even though I haven't read the first in the series I was not lost, as this can be read a standalone. This was a fast paced read that kept my attention from the beginning till the end. It was well written which made it flow well and made it a fast read. I enjoyed the characters and the setting of this story and I look forward to reading more in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
