Bernadette and Libby Simmons have been working twelve-hour days at their store, A Taste of Heaven. And in between whipping up sweet treats and catering high school graduation parties, the sisters have to fit one more event into their busy schedule: catering a high-society wedding that takes a very low turn. . . Leeza Sharp is getting ready to have the wedding of her dreams. She's got a $25,000 dress (gorgeous and made to order), a rich Estonian fiancé (head of a multimillion dollar caviar empire) and a four-star menu (planned by none other than Bernadette and Libby Simmons). Never mind that she's not really in love with her boring, bland groom-to-be. But the dream wedding quickly turns into a nightmare. Just hours before she's scheduled to walk down the aisle, Leeza takes an arrow to the chest--and drops dead. Now Libby and Bernadette have more on their minds than pouring Cristal and cutting up wedding cake: they've got an archery-inclined killer to find. . . Includes 6 Delectable Recipes for You to Try! "The sisters' playful rivalry, clever dialogue and an eccentric supporting cast make for plenty of cozy fun." --Publishers Weekly "Frequent humor, a couple of little-old-lady Marxists, and several delicious recipes complete the cozy picture.
