ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.
A good start to a New series.
Missy DuBois, a hat designer with her own boutique, Crowning Glory on the Louisiana’s Great River Road and her clothes designer friend Ambrose, who owns Allure Couture the shop next door to hers. Are invited to attend the wedding that they both designed for at Morningside Plantation.
Only to have the bride-to-be drop down dead before reaching the alter!
And Missy decides that she need to find answers.
I enjoyed this first outing of Missy DuBois, and can’t wait to sample the next book that is due out.
A light, entertaining mystery. Well written. With a set of characters that you would like to see more of.
Hat designer Missy DuBois opened her shop, Crowning Glory, along Louisiana’s Great River Road to cater to the sophisticated Southern bride. But bless her heart, who knew creating stylish wedding veils would lead to murder?
Hired to craft a veil for a socialite getting married at Morningside Plantation means Missy can bask in the height of antebellum atmosphere. But when the bride is found dead in a women’s bathroom, Missy the milliner finds herself entangled in one unfashionable murder. With the list of suspects thicker than the sweltering Louisiana heat, including a gaggle of bridesmaids shedding nary a tear and a family with no shortage of enemies, it seems anyone at the mansion may have done away with the bride-to-be. While Missy has Southern charm to spare, she’s going to need more than manners and a manicure to put a hat pin on this murderous affair . . .
