Wedding Bell Blues
Beth McKenzie, owner of the Dixie Dew Bed and Breakfast, is enjoying an exciting affair with her new love, Scott. Meanwhile, the town of Littleboro, North Carolina is abuzz with gossip about Crazy Reba's upcoming nuptials. Most brides go crazy at some point, but Littleboro's resident homeless lady has had a head start: she's beloved, indulged, and most of all, eccentric. But at almost 60—or thereabouts—her marriage seems a little peculiar. Sure, she's sporting a diamond big enough to choke a horse, but no one can tell if it's real, or just a Cracker Jack prize she pilfered from a yard sale.
Crazy Reba's wedding plans go confirmedly awry when the bride-to-be is arrested for her fiancé's murder. Beth, determined to clear Reba's name, gets in over her head when a lady wrestler who threatened to kill her books a room at the Dixie Dew, and Robert Redford, her neighbor's white rabbit, disappears.
This was a hard book for me to get into. Beth owns the Dixie Dew a bed and breakfast in Littleboro North Carolina. The police chief in town sees Beth as always in the wrong place at the wrong time. There has already been one death in the Dixie Dew and Beth is going to do her best to make sure there aren't any more. Crazy Reba is the towns resident homeless lady that everyone keeps an eye on. When she starts talking about getting married to God the women in town do everything to make the day one Reba won't ever forget. Will there be a wedding in June?
