A society wedding photographer falls under suspicion in this “charming and exciting new tale of romance and suspense” (RT Book Reviews).
In Lake Hope and other posh suburbs of Chicago, the services of photographer Keely O’Brien are in high demand, especially for all the theme weddings that are the current rage among the socially elite. But after Keely works two weddings from which the gifts are stolen, suspicion starts to fall on her, as well as on caterer Max Summers. Local gossip columnist Flo Netherton insinuates that Keely and Max may be playing some role in the thievery.
Putting aside her pride and her distrust of Max, Keely convinces him to help her uncover the real inside contact for the robbers. Together they set out to explore the grimy underside of the lace and tulle world of society weddings, but once-friendly business colleagues are suddenly too busy—or too afraid—to talk. Overnight, Max and Keely become pariahs, and something more sinister than rumor may be responsible for the wall of silence.
Then Flo Netherton’s body is found in Keely’s ransacked studio—and the stakes are higher than the survival of her business . . .

Ms. Arness shows us, again, how an intriguing mystery is to be written. I found myself awashed in visual images so brightly drawn by her use of words.
This book kept me guessing all the way thru!
Ms. Arness did a wonderful job with this story. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for her next to be published.
Christine Arness has produced another fascinating mystery. This time she takes us from the world of up-scale weddings, yellow journalism and posh catering into the darkenss of theft, murder and betrayal. Christine's snappy dialoge is peppered with humor and laced with romance. Wedding Chimes, Assorted Crimes is must for mystery fans and romance addicts.
