Andy Kendricks doesn't want to attend a society wedding,
her mother drags her along. The
next thing she knows, Andy is roped into being a
bridesmaid. Things get even worse when she
learns the wedding planner is Olivia LaBelle.
Olivia made Andy's life a living hell in prep school.
Andy arrives at Olivia's office to find her dead
with Millicent Draper, a cake maker kneeling at her side
with the murder weapon in her hand. Andy has known Millie
for years and firmly believes her protestations of
innocence. The police are not so convinced.
Knowing her mother, Cissy, has the contacts she needs, Andy
tells her mother she is planning her marriage to Brian
for October. Cissy takes immediate action, and Andy is
walking a narrow line between her investigation and
preventing the wedding from becoming a disaster.
Susan McBride writes an entertaining story with some
fascinating characters. SAY YES TO THE DEATH is the sixth
book in the Debutante Dropout Mysteries. The
conflict between Andy and her mother, Cissy, gives the
reader a fascinating glimpse into a high society life.
This story especially highlights the differences between
the middle class and the very rich in lifestyle and
resources at their command. There is an interesting twist
in SAY YES TO
THE DEATH, and Ms. McBride keeps
the reader invested in the story as Andy seeks a killer.
