Wedding Bell Blues is really set in Pittsboro called Littleboro in the book. You can read about the Phoenix Bakery, S & T Soda Shop, courthouse fire, the fairgrounds…..it’s all in the this book. ruth
Beth McKenzie returns with old friends from the first novel and some new acquaintances (spoiler: some of them don’t last long) for more murder, mystery, menagerie and marriage (maybe) in Littleboro, NC. Crazy Reba lands in jail, Robert Redford runs off, and passers-through cause trouble while the First Annual Green Bean Festival gets underway. Of course Beth is in the middle of everything, all while trying to nurture her blooming romance.
“Ruth Moose is at it again, using her considerable wit and humor to chronicle the lives of her small town Southerners, Wedding Bell Blues is a worthy successor to Doing It at the Dixie Dew.”
—New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash
