Book Description

A killer intends to turn a wedding into a wake in the third mystery in Toni L. P. Kelner’s warm and witty Southern series.

Bells are ringing in Byerly, and fifth time might be the charm for Aunt Ruby Lee. Laura Fleming and her husband are back in town to celebrate Ruby Lee remarrying her ex, Roger, though the run up to the big day is fraught with complications. Aunt Nellie’s triplets are all feuding over the same man. Then there’s Ruby Lee and Roger’s rebellious teenage daughter, Ilene, who’s dating a notorious bad boy.

When Ilene runs off to take part in the neighboring town’s country music Jamboree, Ruby Lee begs Laura to intervene. Before Laura can bring her errant kin home, Ilene’s beau, Tom Honeywell, is found dead on a tour bus. Laura is sure that Ilene’s only crime is bad taste in boyfriends, and Tom had enough enemies to fill the whole parking lot. But with Ilene in jail, Ruby Lee frantic, and the police chief sticking to his guns, it’ll take quick sleuthing for Laura to shine a spotlight on the real culprit in time for Ruby Lee and Roger to say “I do” again.

4.0 out of 5 stars No murder until after page 100 1 Oct. 2000
By D. P. Birkett - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is such a warm and cosy book I feel bad saying anythingnegative about it. I have to warn the squeamish that somebody says "rats", that one character might like men instead of girls, and someone appears on stage in a mini-skirt with a bare midriff (but her father drags her off). A married couple unplug the phone for a hour to do something. There's a lot of nailbiting tension about the plans for Aunt Ruby Lee's wedding. If you can stand all that sex and suspense the mystery is quite well plotted with fairly placed clues. It's set in North Carolina with thick local atmosphere but no mention of race problems (everybody seems to be white if their physical appearance is described). A good-humored blend of "Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood" and Agatha Christie. A neat joke in the acknowledgements.

5.0 out of 5 stars I did it! 14 Sept. 2006

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I figured this one out way before the end! I'm so proud of myself!! Good luck to you!

This is another installment of Kelner's Southern series. There is a lot of humor in this book. The Burnette family themselves could make a book! I tend to get involved with the characters as much as the mystery, so this matters to me. Laurie Anne and Richard even have really cute quote contest going on throughout this one. I think this is a series for you if you really like good characters with lots of little quirks.

So what's the story this time? Well, Laurie Anne and Richard are in town for her Aunt Ruby Lee's marriage (the fifth) when Tom Honeywell gets murdered at the big country music Jamboree. Laurie Anne's cousin, Illene, is accused of the murder and so in come Laurie Anne and Richard to try to get Illene off. Lots of twists and turns to get the final conclusion. Definitely one to get your mind working.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laura and Richard Return to Byerly for a Wedding 30 Dec. 2001
By Moe811 - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Aunt Ruby Lee is getting married for the fifth time. Second time around to Roger of Rogers Ramblers. Their daughter Ilene is rebelling big time. She wants a career in music, but her father thinks it is no place for his daughter. She enters the local Music Jamboree with the assistance of her sleazeball boyfriend. The boyfriend ends up dead on the Rambler's bus and Ilene is accused of murder.
This is a good addition to the series. Laura and Richard have to use their wits and Laura's pack of relatives to solve the crime and the reader has alot of fun in the meantime. A mystery from the past is solved also, which adds some dimension to the plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick, fun read with one real annoyance. 28 Sept. 2008
By G&M - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first novel I've read by Toni Kelner and so this was my intruduction to Laura Fleming. This book was very fast and puts me in mind of Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy series.

Being a southerner myself and having a larger family than the main character there are times in the book when I completely laughed out loud because of the the "been there, done that" factor. But then you get to Laura's inability to say "no" to anyone in her family and completely insert herself into every dysfunctional element that exists therein - I have to draw the line. That was probably the one element of the entire book which absolutely frustrated me and will make me not read any of the other Laura Fleming books.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Laura and her husband & I thought more than once while reading it that he must be the most patient husband ever - especially when it comes to in-laws!

I first picked up Toni L.P. Kelner's more recent "Where are They Now?" mysteries after reading some of her short stores in her anthologies with Charlaine Harris. Kelner's stories were always some of my favorite in the books, so I was eager for more. After blazing through the three WATN books, I needed more, so I tracked down these, which I believe are her first series.

I couldn't find a copy of the second book in this series for less than $10, so I skipped to the third. (Later, I went back and got a copy of Dead Ringer (A Laura Fleming Mystery) on paperbackswap.) Each book in this series is fairly standalone, so I wasn't confused, nor were there any spoilers as to what really happened in the second book, so that was nice.

This one was a little slow-going as far as the mystery plot went, but all the Burnette family drama was in full force, so it never felt like the book was sluggish or lagging in anyway. I enjoyed Laura and Richard's Shakespeare vs. Southernism contest, even though I felt like the Southernism won out every time. I might be a little biased. I liked the way the current mystery tied into a cold-case mystery, and felt that had I been paying attention more, I would have figured out who did it without just guessing.
