‘full of twists and turns which makes the book a real page turner’
A Love Affair… A Secret… A Murder…
Haddley, a quiet English village in the Midlands. Kelly Evans — a sixteen year old girl — is brutally murdered. Her body is discovered by a neighbour, and the police are called in to investigate. Kelly was young and beautiful, and her untimely death comes as a shock to all who knew her … or does it really?
The dark side of Kelly’s personality soon comes to light. She was ruthless and promiscuous, and stopped at nothing to get what she wanted, even if it meant wrecking other people’s lives. She made quite a few enemies, and among close friends and neighbours are some who might have had a very good reason for wanting to get rid of her.
The investigation takes a new and unexpected turn when a locket goes missing, and a connection is made with the twenty-year-old murder of a wartime movie star. As the police search the past for answers and gradually piece the mystery together, the respectable veneer starts cracking exposing a web of jealousy, sexual intrigue and deceit.
I have only one complaint on this book – it was confusing and jumped around a lot.
When I first started it, I was very confused. It jumped from character to character and I wasn’t sure who was who or who I was following. I had to go back and re-read things to make sure I had the correct people matched with the correct names and situations.
Once I was past that (by the end of chapter one), I was good to go and could not put this book down.
This book was intertwined with a ton of characters and two different murders, along with some mixed in drama among characters.
I loved reading it and trying to solve the murders on my own, but just when I thought I had it figured out, I was proven wrong. Just when the Inspectors had it (or I thought they did), they were proven wrong.
I love a good mystery that I can’t figure out and this one was 100% surprise! I had no clue. Not even a hint of a clue!
This was a fantastic murder mystery that once you get past the character confusion, it was most difficult to put down. (And to be honest, I’m not sure there really is a way to solve the character confusion. In hindsight, I think it adds to the mystery!)
If you like a good mystery, I highly recommend The Bridesmaid!

“The real gem of this particular novel is the excellent characters that have been created and each one of them you will know in your own life. The insight of how these people think and react to each other is first class. A true reflection of life in suburbia.” – Beck Valley Books
“If you are looking for a book full of twists and turns, then you need to check out The Bridesmaid: A Mystery. It will keep you guessing until the end. It is full of surprises. You think you know who is guilty one moment, and the next you think it is someone else. In fact, you will probably find yourself thinking that each character is guilty at some point in the book.” – Kelli R. Guilbeau
“I just couldn’t put this book down. I felt hooked into the story from the first page. I really liked that most of the characters in the book had a reason for why they could have been the killer but that there wasn’t one that was an outright frontrunner. I was left guessing to the end.” – taken from Amazon.com
