Blog Tour & Book Review: CANCELLED VOWS by Lauren Carr

Book Description for Cancelled Vows:
Police Chief David O’Callaghan and Chelsea Adams’ wedding day is fast approaching. Unfortunately, at the last minute, David discovers that there is one small problem to be taken care of before he can tie the knot—divorce his first wife!

Lauren Carr takes fans of the Mac Faraday mysteries to the Big Apple in this nail biting adventure. In Cancelled Vows, David, Mac, and Gnarly, too, rush to New York City to dissolve David’s marriage to an old girlfriend—and he’s got five days to get it done. When murder throws up a road block, it is up to David’s best man, Mac Faraday, and Gnarly, K9-in-waiting, to sort through the clues to get David to the church in time!

Mac Faraday takes his role as best man seriously and he is determined to get David divorced and back home to marry Chelsea, while Archie as matron of honor is working to keep Chelsea on track. First Gnarly swallows the rings, then the ex-wife may not want to be an ex-wife, and just when it looks like David might get that signature, Gnarly does his thing and finds a body in the wall. 

The story moves at a rapid pace and has a bit of everything - romance, humor, and suspense with several other murders after the body is discovered. A few surprises along with the tension both at home and in New York. Carr does an excellent job of developing her characters and providing back story while maintaining a quick pace. Well worth the sleep I gave up to get to the end.
