Maggie Crozat, inexplicably tasked with being Vanessa's maid of honor, quickly discovers why everyone else refused the assignment when the bridezilla hands her a long list of duties - the most important of which is entertaining Vanessa's cousin, Ginger Fleer-Starke, a mysterious woman with dangerous secrets. But just days before the wedding, Ginger's lifeless body is found on the bayou behind Crozat Plantation. Now the Pelican PD and the Crozats have another murder mystery on their hands.
There's a gumbo pot full of suspects, including an ex-marine with PTSD, an annoying local newspaper reporter, and Vanessa's own spark plug of a mother. But when it looks like the investigation is zeroing in on Vanessa as the prime suspect, Maggie reluctantly adds keeping the bride-to-be out of jail to her list of maid-of-honor responsibilities.

Fun not noir!

What fun! The impending bride and her mother are nutz, the bride's cousin makes the mob look honest, Maggie is worried about problems with her boyfriend, and then there's the murders. The characters certainly are, the setting is marvelous, the plot twists are unexpected, and the herrings are all red. There is no problem for a reader who dives into this one without reading the other, and no problem should you also discover that you bought this one a while ago but it got legs and walked off before you even read it!
Well this time I got the audio. Meredith Mitchell does a fantastic narration.

Stereotypes and doormats
Not a few of my favourite things
Maggie is a doormat. There's polite, and there's being a doormat. Van is a bundle of negative stereotypes.
The other characters are a lot more enjoyable than Van and Maggie. The storyline is good, I think. I can't be sure because Maggie's annoying behaviour interferes. Was she this drippy in Plantation Shudders? Give her some strength and make Van less cartoonish, and I believe the story could be 4-star.
