About the book:
Summer weddings in Barton Farm’s picturesque church are standard procedure for museum director Kelsey Cambridge. At least they were until the Cherry Foundation, which supports the museum, orders Kelsey to host her ex-husband’s wedding on Farm grounds.
Ambitious wedding planner Vianna Pine is determined to make the bride’s Civil War-themed wedding perfect. But each time Vianna’s vision threatens the integrity and safety of the Farm, Kelsey has to intervene.
When Kelsey finds Vianna’s dead body at the foot of the church steps, everyone’s plans fall apart. With both the wedding and Barton Farm at risk of being permanently shut down, Kelsey has to work hard to save her own happily ever after
My review (5-stars)
This is the third book in A Living History Museum Mystery and my favorite of the series.
In true Amanda Flower fashion, this book is infused with humor throughout.
I know that there’s nothing even remotely amusing about a murder, but the characters dialogue and scrambling to put the perfect wedding together for
Bridezilla Krissie really did make me chuckle a few times. Krissie is determined to have everything she wants for her special day, no matter what!
Poor Kelsey, as the museum director has her hands full with the daily operations of Barton Farm and now she’s dealing with Krissie and her wedding planner, Vianna. Things go from bad to worse when Krissie
decides- demands to have twinkle lights in the church steeple. It’s a safety hazard which Kesley tells them, but Vianna sides with Krissie which as it turns out was a really bad idea leading to Vianna’s untimely demise and a crime scene.
There’s also a slightly inebriated Abraham Lincoln, some stolen artifacts and a few animals wandering around in the visitor center for Kelsey to contend with in addition to raising her young son (and Krissie’s soon to be step-son)
I enjoyed returning to the farm and reconnecting with the characters that I’ve come to love.
I recommend reading the first two books in the series first and I’m sure you will like them as much as I did.
I received a complimentary copy of The Final Vow through Netgalley and have given my honest opinion.
