Series: Iris House B&B
Wedding bells will soon be tolling for Tess Darcy, who is finally to tie the knot with longtime love Luke Fredrik. To celebrate the much anticipated occasion, Tess's Aunt Dahlia and Cousin Cinny are hosting a bridal shower at the Victoria Springs Country Club, the sacred domain of Julian Walker, superchef extraordinaire, who is as thoroughly despised as his culinary masterpieces are adored. So it is not a complete surprise when the dictatorial kitchen artiste is found filleted with one of his own carving knives. The real shock is when Iris House cook Gertie Bogart is fingered as the prime suspect.
This lethal brouhaha could easily ruin Tess's upcoming wedding — and land Gertie in the slammer for a crime Tess is certain her friend did not commit. To rescue both, Tess will have to temporarily exchange her wedding veil for a sleuthing hat. But by doing so, she risks raising the ire of a killer — which, in turn, raises the likelihood of Tess winding up dead before wed.
