Everyone loves a good wedding--and a good mystery. Combine the two and what do you get? Malice, Matrimony, and Murder!

Over two dozen authors have teamed up to offer you this wedding-themed collection of brand-new cozy mystery and cozy crime fiction stories that will keep you wondering whodunit and what's next from the first page to the last. Between bad bridesmaids, conniving caterers, greedy guests, ill-mannered in-laws, savvy sleuths, and vengeful villains, this anthology has it all! All of the stories are clean and fun, with a general feel-good tone. If you read to be entertained, surprised, and uplifted, then this collection is for you!

Plus, the anthology as a whole contains an overarching wedding whodunit woven throughout. As you're reading, collect the clues, identify whodunit, and access a special ebook filled with bonuses and extras. Inside you'll find recipes, character interviews, bonus stories, and more!

If you're drawn to shorter mysteries that are light on gore and language, and high on humor, entertainment, and happy endings, then you don't want to miss out on Malice, Matrimony, and Murder. But this collection is only available for a limited-time, so grab it now before it's gone forever!

5 stars!

This clever and clue-filled collection is certain to entertain and amuse! 

Malice, Matrimony, and Murder is the latest cozy mystery anthology put together by author/publisher Marla Bradean, and its variety in characters, settings, means, and motives is as clever and entertaining as it can get. With its stories of wedding parties under suspicion, beautiful destinations, and series sleuths left to their own devices to round up the killers, this delightful collection is certain to entertain and amuse. 

As the title indicates, there are 25 mysteries to consider, with the authors’ amateur investigators ranging from disc jockeys to fictional mystery writers and crimes occurring all over the globe. But besides the wedding theme tying the individual stories together, the collection features a “Wedding Whodunit” with clues to the identity of its murderer sprinkled throughout the book, one or more appearing in each of the separate tales. Readers should put their thinking caps on because there are directions on submitting your solution to Buddy’s death online, with a prize for those who successfully crack the case! 

I recommend MALICE, MATRIMONY, AND MURDER to cozy mystery readers and lovers of all things wedding.
