The wedding between two extraordinary people with their even odder relatives is arranged to be in Finnish Lappland. The set-up is peculiar enough, but then there is the first body and the vanishing of the groom and the reappearance of the bride's father's ghost! The mystery is pretty good, but the hilarity played out in deadpan caused me to only read while in the kitchen in case I laughed out my beverage. Totally surprising!

Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in return for an honest review. I DNFd this book approximately 15% in.
First, this book is number 4 in a series. I don't think this is a series that you can pick up anywhere. I was very confused and lost.
But secondly, I don't think this writing style is for me. I had a hard time following the train of thought. It was told in first person but she would refer to multiple timelines (I met him last week.. he wrote to me 11 months after we first met). I was also confused if this was supposed to be lighthearted or dark. It just wasn't for me.… (mere)

It opens with a scene that induces gales of laughter and the fun never stops! The mystery is pretty good, but the hilarity played out in deadpan caused me to only read while in the kitchen in case I laughed out my beverage. Too bad for me that I hadn't read the others in series, but the author did make sure to give backstories so I could catch up for now and want to go back and binge read. I really want to know more about Ursula's father's ghost that is with her at all times!
