Three Days to Forever by Lauren Carr - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: January 16, 2015
Number of pages: 438
Genre: Mystery
Series: Mac Faraday Mystery #9

Synopsis:
In this latest Mac Faraday Mystery from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers will embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the love birds to the altar!

With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.

But droopy flowers and guests who failed to RSVP are the least of Mac’s and Archie’s problems when a professional hit squad hits Spencer Manor to send the groom, Joshua Thornton, Archie’s mother, and Gnarly running for their lives.

With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!

What did I think about this book:
I have enjoyed reading this book. This book is a part of a series and I have not read any of the others in the series. I would recommend reading them in order. I am able to read this as a stand alone but think it would be even better in order. One thing that helps is that there is a character list in the front of the book. I like the author's writing style and how she can keep me guessing throughout the story line. There are plenty of twists and turns in this book which makes it read that much faster and add in a little romance for good measure. It is fun getting to know the characters. This was different than most of the mysteries that I read but I have to say it was a nice change.
