Summary

After many trials and tribulations, eternal bachelor Detective Inspector Harry Falconer has finally decided to get hitched. His bride - the delectable Dr Honey Dubois!
 
 With his trusty sergeant Carmichael as best man, Falconer is in remarkably good spirits as the big day closes in. OK, so the normally lugubrious Carmichael is having trouble getting his words out, and there's the unenlightened Mrs Falconer senior to deal with. But surely nothing serious can go wrong?
 
 With impeccable timing, it does - will bride and groom last long enough to cut the cake, or will it all be over before it even begins?

 
The final instalment in the much-loved Falconer Files series by acclaimed author Andrea Frazer.

With dating horror story anecdotes and advice about online dating, self-esteem, sex, money, and freezing your eggs, Andrea Bain takes the edge off being single and encourages women to never settle.

    A witty volume for anyone who’s ever asked, “Is it wrong that I’m smiling?” The Germans may have come up with the word for it, but schadenfreude—the taking of pleasure in someone else’s misery—is a pretty universal human tendency. This book takes a look at the phenomenon with numerous examples, both historical and more recent, from the worlds of art and entertainment, sports, politics, and more. It also explores the roots of schadenfreude—and its connections to everything from psychology to religion to slapstick comedy. From the author of The Snark Handbook, it’s a smart, funny look at the sometimes not-so-noble side of human nature.

    “An entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.” 
    –My Train of Thoughts 
     
    There’s no time for a vote… 
     
    Sean and Sara’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany PD. But it’s not until a local television interview in which they meet Reanne Mable that they end up finding themselves involved with a truly high-profile investigation. 
     
    Reanne is the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport, and his daughter, Halie, has gone missing from her university campus. With his desire to keep the matter out of the media spotlight, Davenport turns to Sean and Sara to find her. But with the police already investigating the matter, taking this case would pit them against their friends from the police department, including their former sergeant Jimmy Voigt. 
     
    As time goes on, though, the fate of the girl is not up for debate, and the McKinleys set out to discover what really happened. With the mayor taking the heat for a recently passed zoning bylaw, maybe an enraged small-business owner is behind Halie’s disappearance. Or did she simply grow tired of living in her father’s limelight and run away? 
     
    To get the answers, Sean and Sara will need to use all the resources at their disposal and may have to call upon their good friend Jimmy for help.
