From Minotaur Books

terror in taffetaKelsey McKenna has planned out every last detail of her client’s destination wedding in San Miguel de Allende. But what she didn’t plan on was one of the bridesmaids dropping dead in the middle of the ceremony.

When the bride’s sister is arrested for murder, the mother of the bride demands that Kelsey fix the matter at once. Although Kelsey is pretty sure investigating a murder isn’t in her contract, crossing the well-connected Mrs. Abernathy could be a career-killer.

Before she can leave Mexico and get back to planning weddings, Kelsey will have to deal with stubborn detectives, another dead body, late-night death threats—and guests who didn’t even RSVP.
