  • Josie Marcus is getting married.  And her boss has given her a 'present':  mystery shopping jobs with wedding-related stores.  In one she meets Molly, who is also getting married to a man named Ted.  Only she later finds out that Molly is a very crazy stalker when she show's up at Josie's Fiance', Ted's vet clinic in full bridal gown expecting him to marry her.  And if that isn't insane enough, Molly is later shot and killed by Ted's mother's pearl-handled revolver.

    So not wanting her own wedding halted, Josie sets out to prove who really did kill Molly.

    I love Josie and her dilemma, and was really happy that she didn't doubt Ted's fidelity for one moment. Her investigations of a strange situation in an already strange industry were often amusing.  Weddings can indeed bring out the worst in people.  A very fun read.
