Shear Murder is a fast-paced humorous mystery that will have you rooting for Marla to walk down the aisle with her groom before another disaster befalls her.

Weddings always make Marla Shore shed a tear of joy‚ and she’s elated to attend her friend Jill’s reception. Marla’s own nuptials are weeks away‚ and she’s busy following her frenetic to-do list. Her plans go awry when she discovers Jill’s matron of honor dead under the cake table‚ a knife embedded in her chest. Lots of folks aren’t sorry to see Torrie go‚ especially since the bride’s sister knew their deepest secrets. But when suspicion falls upon Jill‚ Marla wonders if her dear friend is truly innocent. She’d better untangle the snarl of suspects and iron out the clues before the killer highlights her as the next victim.
