Lexy’s wedding becomes a crime scene when a murderer dares to strike on her big day in this superbly plotted and wickedly funny cozy.

Lexy Campbell is about to put her bridezilla tendencies to one side to tie the knot with her beau Taylor in Cuento. The Last Ditch crew and Lexy’s mum and dad are all in attendance. But just as the couple are about to exchange vows, wedding celebrant Sister Sunshine is discovered dead, strangled with the fairy light decorations.

Her wedding now a crime scene, Lexy vows not to get drawn into the investigation – until she learns about the bizarre going-on in nearby Cuento cemetery from its volunteers. Is there a link between Lexy’s wedding day carnage and a series of disturbing graveyard pranks? Will Lexy ever get her happily ever after? Forget the bride from hell, it’s the wedding from hell, and things are about to get a whole lot worse!

Fans of Janet Evanovitch and Sarah Strohmeyer will fall head over heels for this addictive mystery that’s full of twists and laugh out loud humour.
