This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A killer intends to turn a wedding into a wake in the third mystery in Toni L. P. Kelner’s warm and witty Southern series.

Bells are ringing in Byerly, and fifth time might be the charm for Aunt Ruby Lee. Laura Fleming and her husband are back in town to celebrate Ruby Lee remarrying her ex, Roger, though the run up to the big day is fraught with complications. Aunt Nellie’s triplets are all feuding over the same man. Then there’s Ruby Lee and Roger’s rebellious teenage daughter, Ilene, who’s dating a notorious bad boy. 

When Ilene runs off to take part in the neighboring town’s country music Jamboree, Ruby Lee begs Laura to intervene. Before Laura can bring her errant kin home, Ilene’s beau, Tom Honeywell, is found dead on a tour bus. Laura is sure that Ilene’s only crime is bad taste in boyfriends, and Tom had enough enemies to fill the whole parking lot. But with Ilene in jail, Ruby Lee frantic, and the police chief sticking to his guns, it’ll take quick sleuthing for Laura to shine a spotlight on the real culprit in time for Ruby Lee and Roger to say “I do” again.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 27, 1995 – Down-home mores and country humor inform this ebullient debut. Boston computer programmer Laura and her husband, Richard, visit Byerly, N.C., to see Laura's Aunt Ruby Lee remarry Roger, a country musician. The young people arrive in the midst of a family brouhaha centering around Ruby Lee and Roger's teenage daughter, Ilene, who has announced her plan to enter the novice-performer contest at the Rocky Shoals Memorial Country Music Jamboree, much against Roger's wishes. Ilene is also keeping company with Tom Honeywell, the local behavior problem. Later, after Roger makes a scene during her performance, Ilene argues with Tom and runs away. When Tom's body is discovered on the bus belonging to Roger and his band, Ilene is arrested for the murder, and the family prevails upon levelheaded Laura to prove the girl's innocence. With stalwart, Shakespeare-quoting Richard in tow, Laura delves into Tom's past to come up with the killer. A lively, lighthearted cozy.
