La Fi wants to be done with the wedding from hell. The fact that it’s her own makes it worse.
Dreading the spotlight, she’s tempted to elope. But with their wedding only days away, that’s not an option for supernatural detectives, Thulu and La Fi.
Fortunately, a case comes along that helps distract them as the big day approaches. The client is a bride, dead for over ninety years, who wants to find the truth behind her murder.
Add to the mix a teenage ghost fixated on making La Fi his own bride, and since he can’t come back to life, he’s happy to bring her over to his side.
Juggling the case, her wedding and the sinister teenager, La Fi would like to enjoy what should be the happiest day of her life. That’s assuming the ghost boy doesn’t get his way and she actually makes it down the aisle.
“Wedding Ghost” is a prequel novelette in the Modern Magics series.

Thulu and La Fi do weddings right. The mysterious ghost adds some spice to the preparations. It's a short story, but it's as long as it needs to be to tell it.
