9781933084541: Cold Feet: A Stella Lavender Mystery

Special Agent Stella Lavender is looking forward to an elegant outdoor wedding, a much-needed change of pace from her adrenaline-fueled work as an undercover drug agent. On the grassy lawn of the Rosscairn Castle B&B, she waits with the couple’s family and friends for the ceremony to begin. But one of them has other plans, and as the guests grow restive, the satin-clad bride is dying most horribly. When the sheriff asks for Stella’s assistance, she’s energized by the opportunity to prove herself. But why would someone kill Justine, the bride, on her wedding day? Even as a paranoid drug dealer seeks to silence her, Stella must unravel a complex knot of obsession, grief and secrets before Justine’s murderer claims another victim.

From Booklist:

Stella Lavender of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is a guest at a wedding where the bride, Justine Bradley, is poisoned just before the ceremony is to begin. The local detective, Anselmo Morales, requests Stella’s help in the investigation. Hoping for a transfer to homicide, Stella is happy to get the experience but must also continue to work undercover as a drug buyer. When it’s learned Justine was born a boy and underwent a sex-change operation, numerous avenues of investigation are opened. Was the murderer the groom, his ultraconservative parents, or his jilted former girlfriend? The fast pace; multiple plot strands, which work together nicely; and the well-drawn characters, including strong-willed, intelligent Stella, distinguish this promising new series. --Sue OBrien
