When a washed-up pop star inherits a wedding planning business, it’s all bouquets and bliss until a bride turns up dead.

Paisley Sutton shot to stardom as a teenage rock sensation, but ten years later that star has fizzled out, just like her bank account. When she unexpectedly inherits her aunt’s wedding planning business, Paisley leaves the glamour of Los Angeles for a charming small town in Arkansas. Thinking she’ll arrive in Sugar Creek and liquidate the moldly property, Paisley’s shocked to find Enchanted Events has experienced a major makeover and is now the place for brides. She’s got two months to keep Enchanted Events afloat if she wants to sell and rekindle her music career with the profits.

Paisley’s tossed into a world of vows and venues, but her most difficult challenge comes in the form of one demanding bride. When this Bridezilla’s found facedown in her cake, all fingers point to Paisley as the prime murder suspect. And she does not look good in prison orange.

This former pop princess will need the help of her gun-toting, ex-CIA grandmother and her handsome neighbor, Beau Hudson, to unravel the mystery and clear her good name. As she and her unruly posse dig into Bridezilla’s life, she discovers the woman had a long list of enemies. The closer Paisley gets to the truth, the more her own life is in danger.

Love is in the air this wedding season, but before Paisley can help the ladies of Sugar Creek say, “I do,” she’s got to unveil a killer. Or find herself the next target.

Engaged in Trouble is the first book in the long-awaited Enchanted Events cozy mystery series by award-winning author Jenny B. Jones. If you like laugh-out-loud adventures, small-town romance, unforgettable, sassy characters, and a mystery to keep you guessing, then you’ll love this new page-turning series.

My Review

Sugar Creek, Arkansas is exactly where Paisley Sutton does NOT want to be. However, her pop star singing career has come to an abrupt end and she inherits an event planning business, Enchanted Events, which is located in her old hometown of Sugar Creek. She figures the business is going down the tubes, so she’ll sell it and use the money to start over again in the music business.

Things don’t go quite as Paisley plans. She discovers that Enchanted Events is actually doing quite well. According to her inheritance, she must stay with the company for two months and keep it a success. Only then can she sell it.

Enchanted Events is known for fulfilling every bride’s dream wedding, but Paisley has no experience and doesn’t have a cluet what to do. To make it worse, her first client is a real Bridezilla. After a particularly heated argument with her client, the bride-to-be is found dead at Enchanted Events. The number one suspect is Paisley. The police seem set on making her the guilty party, so Paisley has no choice but to look into matters on her own.

With the help of her handsome neighbor and her former spy grandmother, this is a wacky adventure to catch a killer. This book is a combo of chick lit and cozy mystery. Humor is spread throughout the book with mystery and a touch of romance. It’s a quick read with “laugh-out-loud” fun.

The killer was someone I hadn’t even suspected, although the clues were all there. I love when I can’t figure it out and am kept guessing until the end. The author did a great job with it.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but won’t be my last. I’m looking forward to the second story in this series.
