Sinister Weddings by Dorothy Eden is a three in one book bundle. This compilation of novels centers on weddings. In Bride by Candlelight, Julia is a bride to be; in Bridge of Fear, Abbey is a newly married woman; and in Cat’s Prey, Antonia is on her way to getting engaged. All three of these novels are gothic and hold a hint of suspense.

Bride by Candlelight
Julia moves to New Zealand to marry a man she met three years ago. During that three year gap she did not talk to Paul because he was badly hurt in the war. Her Uncle Jonathan pushed her to marry Paul because he was the grandson of his true love, Georgina who married another man. During Julia’s travels and her stay at Herriot Hills she gets anonymous letters warning her away from Paul with cryptic messages of his dead brother Harry. During her stay she is targeted and almost killed several times. Who can she trust? Who are these cryptic messages from? Why all the secrecy about Harry? (2.5/5 stars)

Bridge of Fear
Abbey moves to Australia from England to marry Luke. When she is married and living in her new house that Luke designed and built himself, she finds that Luke has changed. He is now very distant and cold towards her even though they have only been married a few weeks. She feels that she is constantly being watched by her neighbors and she feels uneasy about everyone being so secretive. Why the sudden change in Luke? Does everyone in Australia stare and watch their neighbors constantly? Why is everyone keeping secrets from her? (3.5/5 stars)

Cat’s Prey
When Antonia gets two letters, one from his cousin Simon and one from his soon-to-be wife Iris, imploring her to go to New Zealand after her Aunt Laura dies; she decides to go stay with them for awhile. Antonia is supposed to be inheriting some money from Aunt Laura, but she doesn’t know exactly how much, because her aunt stipulated that she not inherit it until she was at least 24 to deter fortune hunters. When strange things start to happen, such as a phone call when she first arrives that says they know what happened to her Aunt Laura and to meet him, as well as a strange crying noise that everyone seems to be covering up by telling her she’s hallucinating. What are these strange noises that she hears? Why is everyone trying to convince her something must be wrong with her? (3.5/5 stars)

Personally, I did not think any of these stories were anything special. They all seemed relatively the same to me and everything was tied up too neatly at a very quick pace at the end. I really did not like Bride by Candlelight at all, but once you get past that novel, the other two were fairly good. I can’t strongly recommend this bundle of books, but if you like a hint of the macabre you might like Sinister Weddings. ( )
