The society wedding of the decade has everything: the blushing bride, beautiful flowers... and the groom arrested before he can walk down the aisle? Thank goodness Lady Swift is on the guest list
Lady Eleanor Swift isn't normally one for grand social occasions, but who can resist a wedding? Especially when it's her old friend, Constance Grainger, marrying the most eligible bachelor in town, Lord Peregrine Davencourt. Eleanor is taking Gladstone the bulldog as her plus one, with a smart new bowtie to match her bridesmaid's dress.
But the big day is ruined when the groom is arrested for murder before he makes it to the altar. In a baffling twist, it turns out he was already engaged to the lovely Daisy Balforth, who has been found dead at the local inn with Lord Davencourt kneeling over her. The gossip pages will have a field day
The distraught bride-to-be asks Eleanor to clear her fianc 's name, as she's certain he wouldn't hurt a fly. With help from handsome Detective Seldon, Eleanor examines the evidence. But she's barely had time to write down her suspect list before Constance's father is set upon by a bearded stranger on the golf course. Clearly there is more to this story than Eleanor first thought, but can she catch the real killer before the wedding turns into her wake?
A delightfully gripping historical cozy whodunnit full of intrigue and wit. Fans of T E Kinsey, Agatha Christie and Lee Strauss will be totally charmed.
