This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Gone With the Groom

FICTION MIRRORS REALITY IN GONE WITH THE GROOM
Thompson’s Bridal Mayhem Mystery Series Continues

It’s all over the news. Three company executives of the maker of the powerful painkiller Oxy-Contin pled guilty to misleading the public about the drug's risk of addiction, according to a federal prosecutor as well as a company representative. Was Janice A. Thompson listening from a closet when she penned Gone with the Groom?

The conflict of a big drug company deception is just one of the riveting themes interwoven through this novel — and could be why the groom is missing.
The best laid plans of brides and men go awry when Annie Peterson’s future son-inlaw Scott disappears. Have pre-wedding jitters caused Brandi’s fiancĂ© to take flight, or are more sinister forces at work? Annie puts her super-sleuth powers to work, feverishly racing against the wedding day clock to find her daughter’s missing fiancĂ©.
Has Scott been silenced by the big pharmaceutical company for which he works? Perhaps his disappearance is the handiwork of Otis, Scott’s sneaky dad. But then again it could be the shady wedding photographer or even a sideshow of the political campaign of Scott’s mother.

Will Annie solve the mystery and recover the missing groom in time for the couple to say their wedding vows? Find out in Gone with the Groom.

Author Janice A. Thompson lives in the Houston area. In 2004, her two oldest daughters both received proposals within weeks of each other. The weddings came off without a hitch! Janice has since coordinated weddings for friends and is thrilled to incorporate many of her adventures into her novels.

My wedding tip: Never, ever, go with a package deal...our limos broke down, the church flowers were dumped on the front pew, and the cake flowers never arrived.
BUT, we've been together for 27 years and are still best friends and lovers...so, I'd take a not-so-great wedding day over a not-so-great marriage any day :)

Here's a tip for weddings...something I wish I would have done, but I didn't think of it until later:

We didn't have dancing at our reception, but I still wanted someone to MC the event...but I also didn't want to ask a loved one to be taken away from all the festivities...so I hired a DJ. After the fact, I realized I wasted $500 and I should have burned a CD with some fun songs to play in the background, and gone ahead and asked a friend to announce the different events...the DJ didn't know us nearly as well as a friend would have, and a friend would have made it much more personal.

Sorry I messed up and deleted my last comments!

Sounds like a good book! My wedding went off without a hitch for the most part. One of my bridesmaid's sang at our wedding. During one of the songs the power flashed and the soundtrack she was singing to went dead. She continued to sing acappela beautifully. I didn't know what had caused the power to go out until several months after we were married. Apparently my husband was really nervous during the wedding and had to use the restroom, which was located behind the pulpit. As soon as he turned the bathroom light on, all the lights went out. He quickly turned the light back off and continued to do his business in the dark! The power outage was all his fault!

My post is at Scamp's Place.
