Overview

Spring in the South Carolina Low Country, the azaleas are in full bloom, and the tourists are flocking to Pinckney Plantation.

But so is trouble. Ex-beauty queen and wannabe actress Mary Mar (nee Mary Martha Futch) has returned to Indigo Island to play a starring role in a relative's wedding. But she claims that someone is trying to kill her.

Cousins Lindsey and Margaret Ann don't have time for a diva receiving death threats. After all, Margaret Ann's directing the wedding of the year at Pinckney, where Lindsey's temporarily in charge.

But when a dead body turns up at the Gatortorium, the island's newest attraction, and Mary Mar goes missing, the cousins once again don their sleuthing caps. Margaret Ann's younger sister Bonnie, who is back home for spring break, is also happy to help, as long as she can eat lunch first.

The engaging detective trio returns in another tale of Southern mystery and manners. Secrets from the past compete with present-day perils as the cousins contend with tourists, termites, kidnappers, and killers-as well as another ghost at Pinckney Plantation.

Author Bio: Caroline Cousins is a pseudonym for Meg Herndon, her sister Gail Greer, and Nancy Pate, their one-and-a-half first cousin (their mamas are sisters and their daddies are first cousins).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the pseudonymous Cousins's fizzy second adventure (after 2003's Fiddle Dee Death), South Carolina cousins Lindsey Fox, Margaret Ann ("Mam") Matthew and Bonnie Lynn Tyler get together for a grand wedding at Pinckney Plantation on Indigo Island. When one of the bridesmaids, aspiring actress MaryMar Futch, goes missing and her look-alike assistant is found unconscious, the three amateur sleuths soon find themselves tangled in a kudzu-like mystery. The pace quickens after the assistant dies and someone steals Mam's identity. When MaryMar shows up claiming she's being stalked, Lindsey's not-so-secret beau, Maj. Will McLeod, hides MaryMar at Lindsey's for safekeeping. As Mam goes overboard on the wedding floral arrangements, MaryMar tries to seduce Will and puts on beauty queen airs. Lindsey tries to keep life on an even keel, but is plagued by jealousy and insecurity. Full of Southern charm, Low Country imagery, snappy humor and the requisite secrets and lies, this cozy shows that three heroines aren't too many; they are a triple treat.

    Be prepared

    This book reads as though manuscript pages got all mixed up. For example, I 'm sure the rustling of the ghost gator was the actual epilogue, but all of a sudden we were back at the rescue by Marietta. There were many of these through out the book. It was very confusing. Does no one edit these books. The story was light, but cute.
