Synopsis: After a year and a half of on again off again relationship status, Zak and Zoe are finally getting married. Not only has her own mother morphed into Momzilla, but Zak’s mother shows up a month before the wedding with plans to stay until the big day. When the mom’s gang up to undo all of Zoe’s wedding plans, things become tense. When Zak has to go out of town two weeks before the wedding, things get even worse. But when the assistant to the wedding planner Mother Zimmerman hired ends up dead in the pool, things become outright hilarious. Zoe struggles to maintain her sanity while dealing with a media circus, mom’s gone crazy, and a killer on the loose?
Thoughts: Zoe and Zak thought they had their wedding plans under control, but that was before his mother--and hers--decided they knew best and began to make plans of their own. A wedding planner, his entourage, and numerous members of Zak's extended family are suddenly staying in their home, and to make things worse for Zoe, Zak is out of town for the week. When the wedding planner's assistant turns up dead in the swimming pool, things get even more stressful. Ellie, Zoe's best friend, and her boyfriend, Levi, are having their own relationship issues due to Levi's new job offer, four hundred miles away from Ashton Falls. Will Zoe survive the moms, the unwanted houseguests, and the murder investigation? Will she be able to help Ellie and Levi through their crisis? And will there actually be a wedding for Zoe and Zak?
This book is the first I've actually read in this series, and it's not necessary to have read the rest to enjoy and understand this one, but I think I will go back and read the others in order to get the background on everyone. And I can't wait for the next book in the series, to find out how the wedding turns out!
