Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows that planning a wedding can be murder, but when top D.C. wedding planner Annabelle Archer finds an old nemesis hanging by a bridal veil in a hotel ballroom, she's shocked to discover that wedding planners can be murdered as well! Carolyn McCrabe was D.C.'s grande dame of wedding planning and made more than a few enemies in her day, but because many of the hotel staff saw Carolyn and Annabelle arguing only minutes before the aging diva's demise, Annabelle is immediately pegged as the prime suspect. Determined to shake the suspicion from their beloved colleague and friend, Annabelle's flirtatious assistant Kate, flamboyant caterer Richard, and the always–fabulous hairdresser Fern team up to investigate other suspects. But when another wedding planner is found murdered––strangled by a curling iron cord at an industry party––Annabelle realizes that she might not only be a suspect, but a crazed killer's next victim as well.

Synopsis:

An up-and-comer in the cutthroat world of Washington, D.C., wedding planning, Annabelle Archer always keeps her cool when dealing with hot-tempered bridezillas. The same can't be said for Carolyn Crabbe, D.C.'s grande dame of bridal blowouts, who takes the cake in the “Big Day Diva” category. So Annabelle's shocked but not totally surprised when she finds the professional wedding world's reigning Queen of Mean strangled to death with a bridal veil in a hotel ballroom.

Unfortunately, Annabelle was seen arguing with the deceased just moments before her demise—which makes the still-breathing wedding planner a prime suspect. But when a second industry pro is done in, Annabelle realizes she needs to unveil a killer and fast—with an able assist from her fabulous best friend and caterer extraordinaire Richard—before the life she loves and cherishes is abruptly cut short.

Synopsis:

Someone is murdering Washington, D.C.Us, top wedding planners. Annabelle Archer may be next in this third delightful and hilarious installment from Agatha Award-winner Durham. Original.

About the Author

Laura Durham has been named Washington, D.C.'s top wedding planner for the past three years by Washingtonian magazine, has been featured in numerous national wedding magazines, and is the author of a wedding planning guide. After graduating from Duke University and stumbling into wedding planning nearly ten years ago, she's lost count of the number of weddings she's planned.

She is the author of two previous mysteries featuring Annabelle Archer: Better Off Wed, which won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel, and For Better or Hearse.
