EPIC and Global Finalist
Best Mystery Fiction 2012.
A groom arrested for murder can put a crimp in anybody’s wedding. So when the nuptials of Lee’s best friend are threatened, thirty-four-year old Lee Alvarez—a combination of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovitch’s Stephanie Plum—heads to Mexico in search of the real killer. Not only is this half Latina, half WASP, and 100% detective thrown into the well-organized world of plundered Mesoamerican relics, but finds herself eating the best-tasting tamales ever.
With the help of the rest of the Alvarez Family, Never-Had-A-Bad-Hair-Day blueblood mother, Lila Hamilton Alvarez, brother and computer genius, Richard; favorite uncle, “Tío” Mateo; and Tugger, her energetic orange and white cat, Lee stumbles across the man of her dreams. But is he too good to be true? Probably. So Lee tries to follow her own sage advice, “when Cupid’s wings start flapping, take cover.” Good luck to her.
A Wedding To Die For is the second novel in a series of humorous murder mysteries involving the Alvarez Family, owners of Silicon Valley’s successful Discretionary Inquiries.
Praise for A Wedding to Die For
“I love this series. The family situation adds depth to a murder mystery and the characters are warm and endearing. Even mom has qualities that make her special. This takes place only 40 miles away from where I’ve spent most of my life and makes the story even more appealing. Heather has a wonderful talent. I can’t wait for the next one to come out.”
