      What I like about Widow’ Wreath is the way the author painted the perfect villain. There are a fair amount of unusual characters and situations to keep the reader interested. There are two victims in this book, increasing the suspense factor. The story takes place on an island, which really piqued my interest. I generally find islands and weddings interesting settings for cozy mysteries. However, it didn’t quite feel like a cozy mystery to me and some of the dialogue seemed a bit stilted at [...]

      Widow’s Wreath is a departure from the previous Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries. Victoria finds herself the reluctant host to a wedding extravaganza for a young relative.

      It's always a pleasure to read a new Martha Vineyard's Mystery. But here, the action is a little different - there's much less Victoria and many more outsiders in the cast of characters. All of these outsiders are deeply unlikeable, which didn't make this story as delightful as others in the series.

      I am a bit bewildered. This should be a cozy mystery but the cozy part is somewhat lacking and the mystery is a bit confused.There is no heroine asking questions but a set of scenes and different stories. Being a bit confused I don't know if I liked or not :(Many thanks to Crooked Lane Books and Netgalley

      Who is the dead body in the basement? Why does no one know who he is? Is he tied to the wealthy groom? Victoria is out to solve the murder since the body was found in her basement.I received an advanced copy from Netgalley for an honest review

      This book started out with an interesting plot and characters. However, I found it got quite confusing and repetitive in various places. Victoria was my favorite character and I enjoyed her part in the book. I have not read any other books in this series by this author.
