The Bridesmaid
The Bridesmaid - A Mystery
by Jenny Scotti

A Love Affair... A Secret... A Murder...

Haddley, a quiet English village in the Midlands. Kelly Evans -- a sixteen year old girl -- is brutally murdered. Her body is discovered by a neighbour, and the police are called in to investigate. Kelly was young and beautiful, and her untimely death comes as a shock to all who knew her … or does it really?

The dark side of Kelly’s personality soon comes to light. She was ruthless and promiscuous, and stopped at nothing to get what she wanted, even if it meant wrecking other people’s lives. She made quite a few enemies, and among close friends and neighbours are some who might have had a very good reason for wanting to get rid of her.

The investigation takes a new and unexpected turn when a locket goes missing, and a connection is made with the twenty-year-old murder of a wartime movie star. As the police search the past for answers and gradually piece the mystery together, the respectable veneer starts cracking exposing a web of jealousy, sexual intrigue and deceit.


If  you are looking for a book full of twists and turns, then you need to check out The Bridesmaid: A Mystery.  It will keep you guessing until the end.  It is full of surprises.  You think you know who is guilty one moment, and the next you think it is someone else.  In fact, you will probably find yourself thinking that each character is guilty at some point in the book.

The only problem I really had with this book was the skipping around at the beginning of the book.  I had a difficult time trying to keep all of the characters straight.  There are so many and you really don't get a chance to keep them all straight in your head, well, at least in the beginning.  I found myself having to go back to make sure I had everyone straight.

While this is primarily geared towards women, I'm sure that most people will like this book.  I recommend this for high school students and older, due to some situations.  I give this 4 out of 5 stars.  If I hadn't gotten so confused with the characters, I would've given this a higher star rating.  Of course, maybe it was just me.  I was a little preoccupied and I tend to read a little too fast at times.

Some Americans may have to get used to some of the language or really British names for things.  It really isn't much.  I just know that some people might get a little confused because they aren't used to it.

Believe me this one will keep you guessing until the end.  You might think you have it figured out but I doubt you get it all figured out correctly.
