Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Cozy Mystery I enjoyed this cozy mystery. I really liked the characters Nikki and Dean and the mystery was good too. Nikki and Dean are Private Investigators trying to solve the disappearance of a groom on his wedding day. I did figure out the killer but it was not obvious. I did not read the first in this series and this book does mention the previous mystery but I did not feel like I was missing anything in this one. I also liked Nikki's best friend Kenna. I look forword to reading the next one and following Nikki and Dean's relationship. There is a gross health issue in this book that may make you queasy. Along with the mystery there are some laugh out loud scenes. This was a quick enjoyable read. Enjoy. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
