Beth McKenzie, owner of the Dixie Dew Bed and Breakfast, is enjoying an exciting affair with her new love, Scott. Meanwhile, the town of Littleboro, North Carolina is abuzz with gossip about Crazy Reba's upcoming nuptials. Most brides go crazy at some point, but Littleboro's resident homeless lady has had a head start: she's beloved, indulged, and most of all, eccentric. But at almost 60 or thereabouts her marriage seems a little peculiar. Sure, she's sporting a diamond big enough to choke a horse, but no one can tell if it's real, or just a Cracker Jack prize she pilfered from a yard sale.
Crazy Reba's wedding plans go confirmedly awry when the bride-to-be is arrested for her fiance's murder. Beth, determined to clear Reba's name, gets in over her head when a lady wrestler who threatened to kill her books a room at the Dixie Dew, and Robert Redford, her neighbor's white rabbit, disappears.
Then Littleboro's First Annual Green Bean Festival gets up and running, a famous food writer becomes deathly ill, and Beth must battle through madcap mayhem to apprehend the culprit and save the day.
Wedding Bell Blues is Ruth Moose's sequel to her winning debut, featuring her colorful array of characters and more laughs and hilarity."

At the start of Moose’s busy, sometimes disjointed sequel to 2014’s Doing It at the Dixie Dew, Beth McKenzie, proprietor of the Dixie Dew B and B in Littleboro, N.C., receives an urgent call from homeless lady Crazy Reba, who claims she’s killed God. Meanwhile, the wife of missing Butch Rigsbee roars into town, determined to find Butch and whatever floozy he’s taken up with. Victims and suspects abound as Littleboro’s mayor, Calista Moss, tries to carry on with their First Annual Green Bean Festival, and Beth prepares for the wedding of her friend Juanita and Littleboro’s new police chief, Ossie DelGardo. In addition, a firebug appears to be on the loose. Stir in a little snooping and a hint of romance with musician-turned-handyman Scott Smith, whose ex has become a big-time singing star, and Beth has an overfull plate. Too much action in too many directions makes the plot difficult to follow, though the variety of personalities makes for a fun cast of characters. Agent: Gail Fortune, Talbot Fortune Agency. (Aug.)
