Mini Review: Killing Bridezilla

Today's mini review is of Killing Bridezilla, the seventh in the Jaine Austen series by Laura Levine.

Freelance writer Jaine Austen has, unfortunately, taken on an assignment for high school nemesis Patti Marshall. Patti was a horrid person in high school, and she hasn't gotten any better since. So it's really no surprise when she plunges off a balcony to her death. But when the one decent girl in high school is accused of the crime, Jaine has to jump in and figure out who really did it.

This series is funny, but this book is the funniest. I was laughing out loud the entire way through. And it has one of the funniest scenes in the entire series. The characters are slightly over the top, but they work for the story.

The set up for the murder took a little while, but I was entertained the entire way through. And once the investigation got going, I was hooked. The ending was a surprise, but also made perfect sense.

This is my favorite book in the series so far.
