When Mac Faraday decides to do something, there's no stopping him...even murder!
Not wanting to wait until their big day to start their life of wedded bliss, Mac Faraday and his lady love, Archie Monday, decide to elope to the little church where his ancestors had all married - along the tranquil shore of Deep Creek Lake. However, before they can say "I do", the sanctuary erupts into chaos when Gnarly finds a dead body in the church office.
As they dive into the investigation, Mac and his team discover more questions than answers. What kind of person walks into a church and shoots a man for no apparent reason? How do you solve the murder of a man who has no enemies in the world? Which of the seemingly kind-hearted church members is really a cold-blooded killer?
Then, there is the all-important question, how long do Mac Faraday and his lady love have to wait to get married?
Plus, a special bonus feature: "The Gnarly Rehabilitation Program (A Gnarly Mystery Short)". Bert and Ernie learn the hard way that crime does not pay when they dog-nap Gnarly.

... compared to the tongue of a gossip.
Mac Faraday and his fiancé, Archie, are tired of waiting for their big wedding day, still six months in the future so decide on a secret ceremony in a little nearby church. Taking only Gnarly, the great lumbering 'police' dog with them, their hopes of a quiet marriage are interrupted by the discovery of a body in the church. And the following investigations are unexpected and far from simple ...
This very humerous murder mystery by Lauren Carr once again revisits characters met in earlier books (although none need to have been previously read to fully enjoy this story). The people are well drawn to become fully three dimensional, the conversations are realistic, situations often funny and even the several dogs have real character. The plot itself, twisting and ingeneous, is almost secondary to meeting the protagonists, but still good. And as usual, narrator, C.J.MacCallister does an excellent job interpreting them all and giving each a distinctive and individual voice (although Carmine's Italian accent has to be a bit suspect) as well as flawlessly delivering the text in his deep and pleasant reading.
I very much enjoy these light-hearted stories and look forward to hearing another very soon. My only complaint? My copy seems to be missing the advertised bonus short about the big, boisterous dog, 'The Gnarly Rehabilitation Program'.
