About the Book:
In this latest Mac Faraday Mystery from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers will embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the love birds to the altar!
With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.

With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!

Mac Faraday, a retired homicide detective received a picture of his fiancé, with a man standing beside her. The man Russell Dooley, sent two simple sentences on a note along with the picture, that made Mac's blood run cold. Russell was someone from Mac's past, he was the man that he had angered some time ago when he put his wife behind bars.
The man still blamed Mac for her suicide. With his fiancé now in danger Mac decides he is going to need some help. Mac decides to incorporate several to help him and with all involved the solving of this case looks promising.
The author did an amazing job! The story is very exciting and to describe it as a roller coaster ride is barely the tip of the iceberg. She was able to describe everything in such detail, I felt like I was there during some of the scenes in the book. The characters are very in depth and real, a definite page turner!
