Can senior sleuths Carrie and Henry make it to the altar? Jan 4, 2007
Senior sleuths Carrie McCrite and Henry King are going to get married. Carrie is concerned what a senior bride would wear, so she enlists the help of her two friends, only they start taking over the planning. Since they suggested The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs for the wedding, Carrie gets Henry to go check it out with her. While there, Carrie sees a ghost bride wearing red. Their caterers are shot at while talking to them.
Then they find out someone has been attacking their florists. It appears another florist in town has targeted them. After there is a murder and their florists shop is bombed, Carrie and Henry decide to try to locate the culprit behind all these acts. Can they do so without putting themselves or anyone else in danger?
In the meantime, Carrie has invited Henry's half-sister to the wedding without Henry's knowledge. Will he be upset if she shows up?
This is the first book in this series that I've read. I can assure you it won't be the last. I really enjoyed Carrie and Henry. They are great senior sleuths. Henry is a former cop so he has a lot of knowledge about investigations. Carrie just wants to help and gets into many situations.
I also like that Carrie has good morals and isn't another twenty-something sleuth. She also has a good head on her shoulders which comes in handy in investigations.
I can't wait to read more in this series. I highly recommend this book.
A clever tale displaying the hallmarks of Nehring's mystery franchise Jul 3, 2006
Radine Trees Nehring has made a name for herself as both a journalist and an award-winning author. Her favorite location is Arkansas, and her Something to Die For Mysteries capture the finer points of Arkansas and its unique population.
Carrie McCrite and Henry King are the silver-haired super sleuths of Ms. Nehring's series, and in this episode they have decided to get married. Carrie is busy trying to reconnect Henry with a long-lost half sister; plan a wedding amidst senior citizen status and insecurity about her aging body; and include her favorite friends, Eleanor Stack and Shirley Booth. At a gathering her friends suggest the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, and Carrie decides to drag Henry over there to check out their wedding offerings. What she doesn't count on is a ghost in a red wedding dress; a feud between two flower shops; and a murder:
"A quick scan with the flashlight told him the woman was most certainly dead. The body lay on its stomach, but her face was turned to the side. It looked like something irregular had been smashed into the head, a furious attack. Her wrists and ankles were bound with thin green wire wrapped at least five or six times around, then twisted tightly enough to cut the flesh. He saw blood there, too, so her heart had been beating when she was bound."
A WEDDING TO DIE FOR is a clever tale displaying the hallmarks of Nehring's mystery franchise: a strong belief in God, helping neighbors in distress, and the deep love that is developing and growing between Carrie McCrite and Henry King. Nehring has her finger on the pulse of what makes senior citizens tick, and she weaves an action-filled plot with interesting and yet completely ordinary people to produce a mystery that is cozy and fascinating at the same time. McCrite's writing can take the reader from laughter to tears in short order, and her tale of Carrie and Henry's wedding plans and the resultant murder is fresh and inspiring. Nehring has produced another winner!
