THREE DAYS TO FOREVER does come with a warning notice.  "The key job of a fiction writer is to look at a situation, make observations about how things are and how they work, and then ask, "What if...:  This is what I have done with THREE DAYS TO FOREVER."
(from Ms. Carr)
Three Days to Forever 3

 Author: Lauren Carr
Publisher: Acorn Book Services
Pages: 466, Genre: Mystery
Format: Paperback/Kindle
In this latest Mac Faraday Mystery from best-selling mystery author Lauren Carr, readers will embark on a rollercoaster adventure with old friends (including the Lovers in Crime team of Prosecutor Joshua Thornton and Homicide Detective Cameron Gates), but also meet new ones as Mac Faraday’s daughter Jessica Faraday and Joshua Thornton’s son Murphy Thornton join the team in the race to get the love birds to the altar!
With three days left to the year, Deep Creek Lake is hopping with holiday vacationers and wedding guests pouring into the Spencer Inn for Mac Faraday and Archie Monday’s huge wedding ceremony which is being touted as the social event of the year.
But droopy flowers and guests who failed to RSVP are the least of Mac’s and Archie’s problems when a professional hit squad hits Spencer Manor to send the groom, Joshua Thornton, Archie’s mother, and Gnarly running for their lives.
With time running out to the big day, Mac Faraday and Spencer’s small police force have to sort through the clues to figure out not only who has been targeted for assassination, but also who is determined to stop everything … FOREVER!

 The author writes a chilling spy thriller mystery .   There's dealing with terrorists.  The book covers all kinds of emotions,  romance, drama, lots of action, humor and mystery.   You may find yourself staying up to all hours reading this book to finish it.   It doesn't take long since it is fast paced.
A marriage is to take place 18 months later between Mac and Archie.  Then, of all thing, an assassination team hits Mac's house.   This included Mac's future Mother -in-law Agnes Douglas, Joshua Thornton and Gnarly, of course. On top of that, Mack had put a  murder suspect behind bars and now is getting threats from the husband.Some of the characters from previous Mac Faraday Mysteries and Lovers in Crime series, we meet again.  A real treat is that Mac's two children, for t he first time, we get to meet.  The problem being, so many people make good targets for murder.
After his divorce, Mac Faraday came into 270 million dollars.  This came from his birth mother.  Since Faraday is a retired homicide detective, you'd think he'd become the rich, flaunt it around type, but he didn't.  Even though he is retired he still helps out at the station working murder cases.  Poor Mac, he also became the proud owner of Gnarly, the dog.  not your typical dog. Gnarly likes fun. He got a dishonorable discharge from the Military because he has a problem.  I'll let you figure out what that is.  The wonderful books that Ms. Lauren Carr writes are fun loving and will make you smile, laugh and not want to put the book down.  This is a book you may want to keep to re-read at a later date.

I received a complimentary copy of THREE DAYS TO FOREVER from the author, Lauren Carr and Pump Up Your Book for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
