day is coming for Tori Sinclair and her fiancé, Milo
Wentworth. They are to be married in just days and there are
a lot of details to tend to. There's dissent amongst the ranks
of the Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle, however,
after Leona makes some terribly mean comments about Rose -
and she does it on her TV show. Will the bridesmaids be able
to mend things before the wedding? What else could go wrong?
for starters, there is a murder. A nanny who has moved to
Sweet Briar from England was pushed down a flight of stairs.
It is deemed an accident, just a fall, but there are indications
that she was killed, although the police aren't investigating.
Then, Leona falls and breaks her hip, and with no one else
speaking to her, it's up to Tori to make sure she has a caretaker,
and try to reunite her with the others, including her twin
sister Margaret Louise.
Tori can't let a murderer go free, and with the help of Margaret
Louise, she starts her own investigation. Will she be able
to stitch together the clues in time to solve the killing
before her big day?
an interesting array of clues, and a twisty path to follow,
"Wedding Duress," kept me riveted and reading chapter
after chapter. As usual with this series, I didn't want the
book to end, but ultimately the conclusion was satisfying,
and I can't wait for the next installment.
is something inherently welcoming about Sweet Briar and the
lovely ladies of the sewing circle. The characters are believable
and warm, yet just quirky enough to keep things lively. If
you love a good southern mystery, featuring charm, romance,
humor, friendship, siblings and yes, murder, you won't want
to miss Wedding Duress.
