3.5 Daniel and Hugh have long been friends, both successful actors they are starring in the same movie form the first time. Daniel meets Tamsyn first, they become friend though secretly Daniels wants to be more. Alas, High gets the girl, he and Tamsyn become engaged much to Daniels sorrow. They are to be married at The Abbey, but before Tamsyn can walk down the aisle she is stabbed to death. Who would kill a bride on her wedding day and why?

Daniels and the bride's sister Carey set off to investigate on their own. We learn of Tamsyn and Daniel's friendship from his backstory, meet some of the characters from her past. It isn't until the last third of the book that we learn some things about Tamsyn and if you read this you will see why. Now the pieces begin to fall in place. This authors strength is in her characterizations, especially Daniel who we come to know fairly well.

Quite a good début novel, and it has the added draw of NOT being compared to Gone Girl or Girl on a Train. Two comparisons of which I am very tired. Will definitely watch form this authors next book, my guess is she will get better and better.
