Two elderly spinster sisters––Florence and Lorraine––have lived together ever since the death of their wealthy father, living on generous stipends provided in his will that continue until one of them marries––at which time that sister is cut off financially. The sisters’ family is shaken up when Florence invites them to her wedding. The morning after the wedding, Florence is found dead in her bed. Was it an asthma attack as her new husband and the police believe or did someone enter her room in the middle of the night and suffocate the old woman with a pillow? Local amateur sleuth Rabbi Jacob Kappelmacher is brought in to investigate the suspicious death. He soon discovers that all of the sisters’ relatives stayed overnight following the wedding and could have strangled the old woman in her sleep. So could have the bridegroom. But who did it? And why? With no money and no motive, why would anyone kill the old woman? Rabbi Kappelmacher begins his investigation by interviewing all of the interested parties, intent on figuring out the convoluted and devious crime––and the sinister culprit behind it.

Review:

"The well-paced plot neither plods nor races to the finish as some other whodunits do, and the final resolution is both surprising and refreshing.  A rousing religious mystery--pastrami not included." -- Kirkus Review

"Wedding Wipeout," a Rabbi Kappelmacher mystery, was nothing short of hilarious. And interesting. And edge-of-your-seat....So, why would anyone kill an old woman on her wedding day? You'll have to read the book." -- Maayan Jaffe, Baltimore Jewish Times.
