Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Amateur Sleuth
When writer-for-hire Jaine Austen signs on to script vows
for the ultimate Bridezilla, "I do's" soon become "I wish
I hadn't's"--and curtains for the bride spell a veil of
woes for Jaine...
Jaine's accepted her share of lame
gigs to pay the bills, but rewriting Shakespeare's got to
be an all-time low. The fiasco begins with a call from
Jaine's high-school nemesis, uber rich uber witch Patti
Devane. It seems Patti will soon be sashaying down the
aisle with another former classmate from Hermosa High, and
she'd like the exchange of vows to evoke Romeo and
Juliet...except without the "downer" of an ending.
Even worse than the assignment itself is dealing with
Patti as a client. At least Jaine's not alone, as nobody
can stand the demanding, spoiled, and incredibly rude
Bridezilla from Hell. Patti's managed to rack up an
amazingly long list of enemies in a short time, not the
least of whom include her prospective mother-in-law, the
soon-to-be ex-wife of Patti's stolen soon-to-be groom, and
just about everyone involved in the wedding preparations.
So it isn't a complete surprise when the erstwhile Juliet
plunges to her death during her balcony scene.
loosened bolts that brought down the bride were clearly an
act of sabotage--what's not so obvious is whom, among
Patti's numerous haters, committed this murder most foul.
Was it the caterer she threatened to ruin? The bridesmaid
tossed out of the wedding party for being too chubby?
Jaine's determined to learn the truth--if only to end the
hideous walk down memory lane kicked off by her
association with Patti.
Between fending off
advances from the nerd of her high school nightmares and
figuring out ways to stop Prozac the cat from corrupting
the victim's pet Poodle, Jaine's involvement in this case
keeps veering between comedy and tragedy. That is, until
another body is discovered--and the killer starts laying
plot for a final act--starring Jaine...
