Wedding Plot
by Munier, Paula

During the four-day wedding extravaganza of her grandmother and her longtime beau, Mercy and Elvis, while trying to find the inn's missing spa director, discover a dead body instead, and they, with families and festivities under threat, must save the bride and groom-before death do they part. 30,000 first printing.

PAULA MUNIER is a literary agent and the USA TODAY bestselling author of the Mercy Carr mysteries. A Borrowing of Bones, the first in the series, was nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark Award and named the Dogwise Book of the Year. Blind Search was inspired by the real-life rescue of a little boy with autism who got lost in the woods. The Hiding Place debuted in March 2021. Paula credits the hero dogs of Mission K9 Rescue, her own rescue dogs, and a deep love of New England as her series' major influences. Paula has also written the popular books on writing: Plot Perfect, The Writer's Guide to Beginnings, and Writing with Quiet Hands, as well as Fixing Freddie and Happier Every Day. She lives in New England with her family and Bear the Newfoundland-retriever rescue, Bliss the Great Pyrenees-Australian cattle dog rescue, pandemic puppy Blondie, a Malinois rescue (much like Elvis in her books), and Ursula The Cat, a rescue torbie tabby who does not think much of the dogs.

Mercy Carr, former U.S. Army MP in Afghanistan and sometime amateur sleuth, returns in another charmingly madcap adventure that encompasses everything from romance and family dynamics to missing persons and murder-and let's not forget goats and gourmet cheese-making. Mercy's grandmother, Patience, is getting married at the exclusive Lady's Slipper Estate in Vermont, and Mercy's mother, Grace, and Aunt Prudence are planning the wedding. Patience is marrying millionaire Claude Renault, and Grace and Prudence are determined to make the event something special. So when the director of well-being at the Lady's Slipper, Bodhi St. George, disappears just before the wedding, it's a calamity-he was supposed to give massages and otherwise ensure the, yes, well-being of the wedding guests. Of course, Mercy can't help but get involved in finding St. George, but her search uncovers more than she bargained for: St. George isn't who he claimed he was, and finding his real identity involves rogue Special Service soldiers, a decades-old murder, and a family torn apart by greed. This offbeat tale will appeal to a wide range of mystery readers. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
