The Wedding Caper

The Wedding Caper
By: Janice A Thompson

I really liked the theory of this book, but got bogged down with how it was done. You are put into the mind of this woman who decides she needs to figure out who committed a crime at the local bank. Her first suspect is her husband, which adds a lot of drama to the Peterson household. Annie Peterson considers everyone a suspect until proven otherwise. Along the way she meets some great people and learns some very important lessons.

While there is a great story-line, her constant worry and self-talk are a bit of a bummer at times. Janice Thompson did a great job with the 'who done it?'. I really didn't have it figured out completely until she revealed it at the end.

Back of the Book:

When a $25,000 night deposit mysteriously disappears from the Clark County Savings and Loan, Annie Peterson has reason to be concerned - and to assume the role of amateur sleuth. Her husband's job at the bank makes him a potential suspect, but knowing him to be a godly man, she can't imagine him guilty of a misdemeanor, much less a felony. Then again, there is that matter of the weddings to factor in.

Twin daughters Brandi and Candy have just received proposals, and two weddings are pending. Sure, Warren occasionally jokes about robbing the bank to pay for the ceremonies, but Annie knows him better than, doesn't she?

Just about the time Annie things she can wriggle Warren off the suspect hook, he shows up with enough cash to cover the cost of both weddings.

Annie dives into the investigation, and the suspects pile up. One by one they fall, leaving her with only one logical choice. Who will it be: a somber-faced loan officer, a security guard with a shady past, a drifter with local ties - or the man she loves.

Hey Julie,
Thanks for visiting my blog. You have a HUGE list of authors on your page. Do you have a few that are your favorites? I'm inclined to read more humor than drama, but I can handle a really good drama now and again :-)

I read mostly drama. Favorites of mine are Beverly Lewis, Lori Wick (haven't read any of hers recently so there aren't reviews) ML Tyndall...

The reason there are so many authors is b/c I read a lot of novellas. Those usually have more humor in them. Take a look at some old posts and see what you think!
