Synopsis from Goodreads: Pastry chef Kate McGuire is loving life on the laid-back island of Coral Cay, Florida. As junior partner in a bakery renowned for luscious desserts--especially her cookies--life is pretty sweet. So when an old friend arrives and announces a spur-of-the-moment beach wedding, that's just the icing on the wedding cake.


But the groom vanishes right as a television crew descends on the town to film a hot, new realty show. Is there a connection? Is her friend Desiree somehow involved? Or did groom Judson simply get cold feet? The bride and groom were paired better than warm cookies and cold milk, so Kate doesn't buy it.


As the show's cast runs amok on the island and the investigation into Judson's disappearance heats up, Kate and her pal Maxi, along with town dog Oliver, will brave the rambunctious world of reality TV and a wedding weekend gone awry, in an all-out effort to find the missing groom.


My Review: Although this is the third book in the series, I was able to jump right in without having read the first two books. I will go back and read the first two though because I really enjoyed this one. I loved the setting, the main characters and how unique the mystery was! The story definitely kept me engaged and guessing until the end. The book did not turn out the way I thought it was going to go. Overall I really enjoyed this one and am looking forward to reading the first two books.
