Overview

During the 1940's the women attending Regina College insisted a beautiful young woman wearing a 'fancy dress' haunted the halls near the chapel. Many claimed to see the apparition often entering, sitting, and softly crooning a mournful melody. Stories of the 'Rosary Bride' continue from generation to generation.
Fifty years later, during the renovation of the college library, workers expose a skeleton. Grace Marsden, present at the discovery is drawn into the search for the victim's identity, fearing the remains will lead to skeletons in her own family closet. Against her husband, her best friend, and her own common sense Grace determines to find the truth. Her involvement grows beyond her control when the dead woman reaches out to her.

Complications arise when the investigating police inspector dredges up more old secrets and betrayal. Ignoring her husband's theory that the Inspector's motives are less than honorable, Grace continues her quest to solve the decades old homicide. Desperate to know the truth, Grace enlists the help of Sister Andrew, a nun who lived at Rosary during the 40's and has chronicled the college's history. But all too soon the treachery of the past meets the future and once again lives are lost.

Can Grace name the 'Rosary Bride' before her killer strikes again?

Editorial Reviews

Barbara D'Amato
"My favorite kind of book - old sins cast long shadows. When a long-dead woman is found behind the fireplace at Regina College, new crimes begin to happen. The Rosary Bride is suspenseful and poignant."
Carolyn G. Hart
"Luisa Buehler's debut mystery, The Rosary Bride, is a twisty, taut, compelling story of love gone wrong, a fascinating, haunting tale."

With her debut novel, she has realized a dream put on hold while raising her son and running her company. Luisa lives in Lisle, Illinois with her husband, Gerry, their son, Christopher, and the family cat, Martin Marmalade. In her free time, Luisa loves to garden and wishes she could play golf better.

This intriguing story has ghosts, murder, romance and more! A definite for the avid reader! Even better for people from the Chicagoland area. Keep up the great work Luisa!
