Welcome to Normal where nothing is normal.

In the heart of the charming town of Normal, Kentucky, Mae West has patiently awaited her wedding day to Hank Sharp. Friends and family gather, the crisp autumn air carries the scent of fallen leaves, and laughter dances through the warm Southern breeze. Everything is set for a picture-perfect day, a celebration of love in a town nestled by the serene Daniel Boone National Forest.

But in the South, they say, "Mishaps at weddings are like the rain in April—unexpected but not unusual." Just as Mae is about to say her vows, a bolt of lightning struck. The news hit like a tornado—literally—a young girl had been murdered, and a tornado has torn through the town, turning everything upside down, including the carefully laid wedding plans.

In a town where mysteries were as common as fireflies on an autumn night, Mae West and the Laundry Club ladies venture where others fear to tread, unearthing long-buried secrets and confronting a darkness that threatened to shatter the tranquility of their beloved Normal.

Another question is on everyone minds, will Mae and Hank finally tie the knot?


I am out of breath running around with Mae and her big binder getting ready for the biggest day of her life. Everyone has been waiting for Mae and Hank to tie the knot and here it is a mere forty-eight hours away. I’m tired just watching Mae drag her oversize  binder around checking off her to do list. The question is , will the wedding take place? 

Mother Nature certainly doesn’t care about a wedding and is threatening Normal, Kentucky with a big storm. Really? On the biggest day of Mae’s life a storm has to come through? To top it off Hank is deep in an investigation of a missing person. It is imperative that he meet Mae today  to get their marriage license. I sure hope his investigation doesn’t hold him up. Can you feel the tension in the air? 

Chaos is everywhere as Mae and Hanks’s upcoming wedding is falling apart. I loved how the town comes together when everything starts to shatter before the bride and groom’s eyes. Poor Mae is beside herself as her dream of a perfect wedding starts to crumble around her. Someone very wise told Mae, “In the midst of a storm, they reveal our strengths and the bonds that hold us together.”  

Mae has once again inserted herself into  another investigation right in the middle of wedding  plans. She and her group have decided that the case must be solved and they are perfect for the task. I laughed and cried throughout the story as the author delivers another great book in this series. Do Hank and Mae get married? Is the guilty person caught in the death of a young woman? Grab a copy and get ready to read the most anticipated story in this fun series. 

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The review is my own opinion.
