Trouble Looking For a Place to Happen

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.
