The seaside town of Fethering, home to Carole Seddon and her friend Jude, is a place rife with foul play, as evidenced in this sixth mystery in the series.

Carole is thrilled with the coming wedding of her once-estranged son, Stephen. She finds it odd, though, that the parents of the bride have no interest in arranging the wedding and seem terrified at the prospect of publicizing it. Things turn deadly intriguing when the father of the bride disappears at the engagement party, only to be found brutally murdered the following morn. Now, Carole elicits Jude’s help in sifting through the guest list, including Gaby’s nefarious brother and her uncle, a justice of the peace, before the festivities become completely funereal.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 12/29/2013

    " One of the better books in this series. These books aren't classics, but they are a fun read. Carol Seddon's son is getting married and her daughter-in-law to be is ignorant of the skeletons in the family closet. It's a fun read, if a bit predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 May | 7/15/2013

    " Easy to read but extremely predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 5/23/2013

    " This one might not be my favorite of Simon Brett's Feathering Series, but it's up there near the top. These books are always very enjoyable, and Witness at the Wedding is a thoroughly good read. Highly recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Jones | 11/23/2012

    " I listened to this as an audiobook, so my review could be influenced by the reader on the tape. It wasn't a bad book but slow in the beginning, and then gave away too much so that I had the entire mystery solved when there were still 2 of the 7 CDs to go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 5/26/2012

    " This was the best of the series to date. It will be interesting to see if Simon and Gabby are principles in future books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/11/2012

    " I started reading this series years ago. I may not remember the plot, but I recall the series having likeable characters if little mystery. I enjoyed the titles well enough that I read the new releases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne C. | 8/28/2011

    " My favorite of the Fethering series so far, since the structure of the mystery didn't follow the usual pattern. Excellent book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne Byrne | 7/31/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 4/11/2011

    " I liked this more than I sometimes do this series (still nowhere near as good as Brett's Charles Paris series), even though I was pretty sure I'd spotted the real villain early on (and I was right). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 3/10/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 9/14/2010

    " Jumped around a lot at the beginning, settled in the middle which is where I figured it out and then it moved pretty quickly to the end. Okay...not the best but a good light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale | 12/21/2009

    " ill Bk was fun to see Carole and her daughter-in-law and granddaughter grow closer- Jude and Carole are a great pair of amateur British sleuths "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 12/14/2009

    " This is a nice light amusing read - a detective story with added humour and warmth and without callousness or cynicism on the author's part. I worked in a couple of bookies' when a student so can say he has the milleu spot on! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leanna | 11/20/2008

    " This is the latest in the Fethering Mysteries. The series is about two old broads who are neighbors and amateur sleuths. It takes place in England. They are great on tape or to read. "
