A dead Best Man. A high profile crime. And a murder charge against the wedding planner.
Things never seem to go right in Buckingham Downs, a quaint coastal resort town in California, where when the rich get married, it’s a billion-dollar business. Things certainly aren’t going right for Valerie Masters, her clingy Yorkie, Buttons, and her wedding planning business. It’s a new wedding and a new batch of clients: a meek bride, a reluctant groom, a controlling mother of the bride, a young step-father, and a whole bunch of secrets.
But before anyone can walk down the aisle, Val is accused of murder. Murder of a man she only met once and barely talked to. The police are throwing crazy theories at Val, trying to get her to confess. Her only hope is her best friend Sebastian’s rich uncle, Wellington Brown, a famous hot shot L.A. lawyer. With so many accusations against her, Val has to find the real murderer before she ends up in jail. But her options are limited, and the detective whom she hoped would always be at her side seems ready to betray her as well.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Dying Before “I Do” is the seventh in The Jennifer Marsh Mystery Series. Readers asked me to write another in this cozy mystery series, and I was very happy to once again find myself in Jennifer Marsh’s world. Jennifer is an unpublished mystery writer with a group of zany writer friends who are always willing to jump into the fray to help Jennifer solve whatever crime she’s currently involved in. In this book Jennifer and long time beau are finally getting married. The mystery part of the book, which involves an old kidnapping case, started out with my usual “what if” inspiration. Why are people suddenly dying and in danger over something that was over and done with four years ago? What if the kidnapping was more complicated than it at first appeared? I love mysteries that challenge me to write them and this was one of them.
