About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Fischetto comes the next hauntingly fun Gianna Mancini Mystery...


Reluctant ghost whisperer and newly hired party planner, Gianna Mancini, finds herself helping to plan an over-the-top wedding unlike any she’s ever seen—gaudy carnations, mermaid-inspired bridal party gowns, and a piña colada infused wedding cake. Whatever the client wants. But when Lexi, an author and the maid of honor, is found dead at the bridal shower, Gianna’s job becomes much more difficult. Especially when Lexi's ghost appears to Gianna, demanding answers.

Lexi is not all that happy she’s been killed before her latest book can be published—a scandalous drama not-so-loosely based on the secrets of those in her real life. She wants revenge for her death, but there are more suspects to the killing than Gianna can keep straight. On top of that, the bride-to-be asks Gianna to step into Lexi’s ridiculously high stilettos and become her new maid of honor. With only a week before the wedding, the clock is ticking down for Gianna to find a killer. Seven days of giggly women, angry relatives, and a ghost who is more vengeful than helpful. While Gianna keeps her attention on a houseful of suspects, a killer watches her every move...and if Gianna isn't careful, they just may strike again!

Stilettos, Bow Ties & Dead Guys is a twisty, funny, cozy mystery. Between the boss from a warm place and a bridezilla determined to not accept any of her mother's suggestions, Gianna has her hands full. Then at the bridal shower, the maid of honor's ghost walks through Gianna. These are fun mysteries enhanced with Gianna's family and their Sunday dinner expectations. I love the recurring characters. There are so many suspects for Lexi's murder and a variety of possible motives. The plot just keeps getting more convoluted. I loved that I could not possibly guess what had happened.

4.5 stars Gianna is at a bridal party when she walks through Lexi, the maid of honor, and they both realise she's dead. Lexi was writing a tell all book about the rich family and friends of the bride, but was it something worth killing over? Lexi doesn't want to cross over until her murder is solved, so Gianna is on the case! These books are always such fun to read! I really like the way Gianna investigates, without being too nosey or irritating, as some amateur sleuths in cozy mysteries are. I don't find myself wishing I could tell her not to do that, or face-palm in frustration. Her family is quirky but I love that, and I love her relationship with them. Especially with Enzo, and also the expectations of her, in regards to Sunday dinners. Hilarious! Another fun Gianna story. Can't wait for more!
