Dying on the Vine
Kelsey McKenna has taken on new clients, Haley and Christopher, at her wedding planning business. The father of the bride fired the former wedding planner, Babs Norton. Now it's up to Kelsey to sort out all the details initially organized by Babs. When Kelsey sets up a meeting with Babs to smooth things over and to make sure she isn't upset about Kelsey taking over, she finds Babs dead in her office. If that weren't enough Babs's partner Stefan, openly accuses Kelsey of murdering Babs, leaving Kelsey feeling she has to clear her name if she wants to stay in business.
This cozy mystery set in California wine country will delight with its fun, bubbly charm, quirky characters, and twists and turns throughout. Kelsey is the perfect amateur sleuth, ready to take on weddings at a moments notice, not afraid of local gossip or secrets; she is intent on rooting out the murderer. She not only wants to clear her name but to find out why Babs Norton, the self-proclaimed Queen of Wine Country Weddings had to die.
