You’re invited! Bride’s or groom’s side? Dateline: London, Paris Antibes. It’s time to get down to nuptial nuts and bolts. But while heiress Penny’s distant relatives insist that the wedding be held in their native France, Jeremy’s kin won’t have it anywhere but England. And either choice might just reignite the Hundred Years’ War. Then, in a family chateau high above the perfume fields of Grasse, Penny’s French cousin offers her the loan of an ancient bridal tapestry. But Penny has barely begun to crack its perplexing imagery before a series of strange events unfolds, threatening to derail the wedding. From Lake Geneva, to a nostalgic stop at the opulent Train Bleu, to a winner-take-all gamble in Monte Carlo, Penny and Jeremy are off to another romp … while the clock is ticking down until they say “I do.” Download and start listening now!

    " Third in the Penny Nichols' series - the continuing characters are entertaining but the mysteries they involved are beginning to be stretched thin. "

    " This is the third in the series of Penny Nichols' adventures. The other two are A Rather Lovely Inheritance, and A Rather Curious Engagement. Each novel includes a mystery to be solved as well as some very old-fashioned romantic adventures. I enjoyed the story very much and look forward to the next installment. I hope that some of you are familiar with Penny and her family and friends. "

    " This is the third book in the adventures of American millionaire heiress Penny Nichols and her British fiance, the equally rich Jeremy Laidley. I adore this series! The series is referred to as "a return to the Golden Age of suspense". I agree, although the books are set in a thoroughly modern time period. The book starts slow, but you don't mind reading about the mundane details of Penny and Jeremy's life. The author, C.A.Belmond carefully crafted the background of the story in these inauspicious beginnings. In this book Penny and Jeremy are planning their wedding but everyone wants a part in making the plans. The warring factions include Jeremy's oh-so-proper British high society grandmother, Margery, and Penny's French cousins, "Tante" Leonora and "Oncle" Philippe. When a priceless ancient family tapestry, loaned to Penny by the French relatives to be used as the backdrop when she takes her wedding vows, is stolen, the action heats up. Like the other previous books in the series, a mad romp between France and England constantly takes place as Penny follows the clues in the tapestry, hoping to find the answer to a long-ago mystery and perhaps find the rumored treasure. Luckily Penny had taken many pictures of the tapestry so that she could both match the colors in it to her wedding colors and also because she just loves antiques and her previous profession was in the research of authentic props for doculmetaries. The clues in an antique clock help unravel the mystery. And of course there is a villain! Loved it, loved it, loved it! I highly recommend it- but start with the first book "A Rather Lovely Inheritance". "
