Part 1 of the Kelsey McKenna Destination Wedding Mysteries series.

							Wedding planner Kelsey McKenna is just a few hours away from wrapping up her  latest job: a destination wedding in San Miguel de Allende. But just as the  priest is about to pronounce them husband and wife, one of the bridesmaids  collapses into a floral arrangement. Worst of all, Kelsey discovers that she  hasn't just fainted- she's dead. Mrs. Abernathy demands that Kelsey fix the  matter, and although she's pretty sure investigating a murder isn't in her  contract, crossing the well-connected mother of the bride could be a  career-killer. Before she can leave Mexico and get back to planning weddings,  Kelsey must deal with stubborn detectives, another dead body, and a rekindled  romance in this smart, funny and cozy debut.

"Drop your plans and read this new series starring Kelsey McKenna, witty and resourceful wedding planner extraordinaire. This wedding planner will win you over!" - Janet Cantrell, bestselling author of the Fat Cat Mystery series

"Filled with quirky characters and plenty of action, Terror in Taffeta kept me coming back for more. Marla Cooper's writing is fresh and upbeat. I look forward to reading many more of Kelsey's adventures in Weddingland." - Jacklyn Brady, national bestselling author of Rebel Without a Cake

"Romy Nordlinger exudes pep and professionalism as the voice of wedding-consultant-turned-sleuth Kelsey McKenna. When a bridesmaid collapses during her vows and is pronounced dead, Kelsey's problems as a wedding planner for a destination wedding escalate quickly. Her challenges range from how to cure a tequila hangover to how to get the bride's sister out of a Mexican jail. Nordlinger expertly handles the transitions as Kelsey moves from explaining wedding etiquette to managing a high-maintenance mother of the bride, with hilarious asides meant for Kelsey's photographer bestie and the listener. Nordlinger excels with the mother of the bride's posh clipped cadence and makes the groom and his buddies sound believably masculine. Overall, Nordlinger takes this campy mystery to a place of anticipation that listeners will savor." - AudioFile Magazine

"The book is smart and witty, and respectable as a whodunit, but theater and television actress Nordlinger turns Kelsey's self-deprecating narration into something even more delightful, a stand-up routine that is entertaining and often hilarious." - Publishers Weekly
