One of the brides is private investigator Regan Reilly. Her wedding is in seven days. Regan Reilly and her fiance, Jack "no relation" Reilly -- head of the NYPD Major Case Squad -- are getting married! Regan had the perfect dress made by two young designers on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Arriving at the bridal salon to pick up her gown, Regan discovers the shop has been broken into, the designers bound and gagged, and wedding dresses for four of the April brides (her dress included) are missing. A fifth dress is in shreds on the floor. Even though it's a week before her wedding, Regan gets on the case, and in the process she meets an unusual mix of brides and grooms-to-be, or -- perhaps "not-to-be." Over at One Police Plaza, Regan's bridegroom, Jack, is trying to solve a perplexing series of bank robberies.

Bubbly, hilarious, peachy, direct, witty, momentous, infectious. In short, it's a cozy mystery book that had humble ambitions but transcended its limitations to excel its own potential. But if you want to conduct a more detailed analysis, you might find it hard to pinpoint what made the book tick for you. The characters are two dimensional. Yet they work because the book wants to exude fun, not sleazy realism. The plot is engaging. You care sometimes for the victims (whose plight is serious but not life-threatening), but sometimes you care for one of the bad guys. In the end everyone gets what she deserves and others get their just desserts. I had a blast reading this book. Toodle-oo for now.

    I always enjoy this author. This book was a lot of fun, and although anything in it could have happened, taken altogether all of the events happening as they did would be highly unlikely. But that just made it more fun. I guess I like it best when no one has to get killed for there to be a mystery. And that's how it was in this book, where the crime is the theft of four wedding gowns, including Regen's, and the shredding of another along with the theft of the designer and his wife's cash and an I always enjoy this author.

Not only are some of the wedding gowns missing, but so are some of the grooms. The relationships between the about to be married couples get pretty complicated, and there are some hilarious plot twists that I can't give away here. Regan does, of course, find her wedding gown in time for her wedding, and we do see her happily married at the end of the book. This is no thriller, but that's the way I like my mysteries -- light and funny.

    I have always enjoyed books by Mary Higgins Clark and I am starting to like books by her daughter, Carol Higgins Clark as well. "Hitched" tells about a comedy of errors which begin when 4 wedding dresses are stolen and one destroyed. Carol weaves the lives of the five brides-to-be together with mystery and a light touch. If you like "fun" mysteries, this one is worth reading for sure.

    a great 'light crime' read with an unusual plot and great characters. Regan Reilly is a refreshing character amongst female detectives - she's tough and smart and definitely not easily intimidated, but lacks the self-righteous, preachy, I'm-so-awesome arrogance of the likes of VI Warshawski, and the ball-breaking bitchy attitude of countless other female detectives in crime fiction. Regan's family and friends are great characters too, and I especially liked her fiancé Jack 'no relation' Reilly an a great 'light crime' read with an unusual plot and great characters.

Regan's family and friends are great characters too, and I especially liked her fiancé Jack 'no relation' Reilly and her dad Luke, and her friend Kit. The 'Bridezilla' characters were funny, and like something off 'Don't Tell the Bride'. The only character I disliked was Alfred the dress designer. He was an over-dramatic, whiny little bitch. But that is recognised by the other characters, especially Regan, who often gets frustrated with Alfred's amateur dramatics. And I wouldn't be surprised if men who are 'something' in the fashion world in real life are sometimes just like Alfred! Good plot with several twists and turns, so that I really was wondering, as one review on the book cover also wondered 'just who would make it up the aisle'. It's like reading a combo of a good crime story (and surprisingly I didn't much mind the absence of a murder, which is the norm in crime fic) and those delightful stories from trashy mags, but given much more class because of the way the characters are written. Is it great, award winning crime fiction? No, it's just a fun, quick little read, and certainly much better written than the tosh turned out by the likes of James Patterson and his legion of co-writers. Jack and Regan were also nice together and their relationship and lead up to their wedding added nicely to the story without overtaking it.

    An enjoyable, light action mystery about bride-zillas and missing dresses. The audiobook is nicely read by the author. Not remarkable, but pleasant.

    I got this book on CD to listen to on a short trip that I took. I haven't read or listened to any other books in the series, but other than a few characters that were mentioned at the end of the book and a few previous incidents (enough detail was given for me to figure out what was going on), I didn't feel lost. I would consider this to be light, fun read. It had an interesting group of characters, many of whom were a little quirky, and a fun mystery.

    It's a cute but shallow and silly story. Just a fun light read, in the vain of Stephanie Plum, but not as good and not as racy. It would be better if there was more romance in the story. It's hard to take a mystery story about stolen wedding dresses seriously. Too many story lines going at once and then they magically intersect and are resolved.

The guys girlfriend gets abducted by an odd dog woman. One April bride and groom are freeloaders/con artists who are intent on robbing an elderly couple. One of the brides is the bank robber that Jack is hunting. She is robbing banks to afford the designer wedding dress in the dream wedding that she is visualizing without a potential groom. She hooks up with one of the other brides' grooms. Against all odds, there's a "happily ever after" type ending. (hide spoiler)] Dislikes: * Regan wasn't very upset with her wedding dress being missing a week before her wedding * The designer's voice and personality annoyed me, so I wasn't as sympathetic with his robbery and the resulting problems * Bridezillas are not my favorite sympathetic characters, so though I wished them beautiful weddings, I couldn't relate to their tantrums and rudeness * Jack is by far my favorite character and he is just a background character as Regan's beau. I think the book would be much better if it were about Jack and not Regan. Regan needs more depth and fire IMO. * Sadly unromantic wedding book I would like to know how Jack and Regan got together, so I may listen to that story. I just can't get excited about a mystery story without a body count.

There are a lot of people to keep track of and it’s easy to forget who is who. I wish the author had mentioned what happened to Hattie. She held Joyce against her will and nothing was done about it?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I did not enjoy the writing style of the author. I will not be reading anymore books from her. The story line was over the top and you find out "who did it" very early. The rest of the book seems extreme to keep the reader interested. It felt like the author tried too hard to make sure the book was exciting. The links between characters became ridiculous. Then the book seemed very rushed at the end. I would not reccomend this book.

    Private Investigator Regan Reilly is getting married to her soulmate Jack Reilly, a NYC cop. When her fancy bridal gown is stolen, along with several others from the same designer, Regan is on the tail of the thieves. Several subplots add to the action. Jack’s squad is after a bank robber – The Drip (so named because the heavily disguised crook always hits during rain, stormy weather). The book ends with their wedding party.

    A romantic/comic-crime caper is probably the nearest I can get to describing this book's style. It's an amusing enough read full of quirky characters but while it was a fun-enough at the time sadly it was also pretty much instantly forgettable...

    Hitched is the second book that I have read in the Regan Reilly series, and I must say that I enjoyed this one as much as the first. Clark delivers a delightful tale full of twists and turns as well as with some really colorful characters. The book begins with Regan going to pick up her wedding dress only to discover that it along with three others were stolen, one was destroyed, and her designer robbed. Regan is quickly on the case which puts her in the path of four other very different brides.

    With only a few weeks before the wedding, five brides-to-be are told that their fancy gowns have disappeared or shredded to pieces. Since the bridal boutique where they have ordered their dress is an exclusive New York shop, the media takes hold of the unusual event and invite the salon’s owners and the victims to appear in a popular show.
