In a plot reminiscent of a Shakespearean romantic comedy, with mistaken identities and misunderstandings, Runaway Bride by Carl Weber starts with domestic chaos. Tia leaves Choir Director Aaron Mackie at the alter. Bishop TK Wilson is jealous of his wife First Lady Monique and she is running around behind his back hoping to become a movie star. Aaron think his life-long friend and manager Ross is double crossing him. The mysterious new church secretary Tia seem torn between sweet Pippie, church handyman, and military girlfriend.
But soon enough this strife among friend and spouses becomes dark, very dark ... rape and murder dark. The scenes with blissful sex are replaced with mystery and death.
In the end this is a murder mystery where the long line of corpses keeps the reader and everyone else lost among the possible motives and suspects. A fast read with enough twists and turns to satisfy any mystery reader.
