Special Agent Stella Lavender has a stressful‚ adrenaline-fueled job: buying drugs undercover from paranoid drug dealers.

So one afternoon she’s grateful to be relaxing at an elegant outdoor wedding. But as the guests wait‚ then grow restive‚ the satin-clad bride is dying most horribly. Who would kill a bride—an “angel” according to the groom—just minutes before her nuptials?

Joining the investigation‚ Stella discovers the bride’s surprising history and that jealousy‚ depression‚ and grief colored her relationships.

In Cold Feet‚ Karen Pullen draws the reader into a riveting story that alternates between Stella’s life as a drug agent and her determination to untangle a complex knot of secrets‚ harmful emotions‚ and questions of identity in order to find a killer.
