Wedding planner Kelsey McKenna is just a few hours away from wrapping up her latest job: a destination wedding in the charming, colonial Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende. The reception is all set up, the tequila donkey is waiting outside, and the bride and groom are standing on the altar, pledging their eternal love. But just as the priest is about to pronounce them husband and wife, one of the bridesmaids upstages the couple by collapsing into a floral arrangement, a definite wedding “don’t.” Kelsey soon discovers that the girl hasn’t just fainted–she’s dead.
Losing a bridesmaid is bad enough, but when the bride’s sister is arrested for murder, the demanding mother of the bride insists that Kelsey fix the matter at once. And although Kelsey is pretty sure investigating a murder isn’t in her contract, crossing the well-connected Mrs. Abernathy could be a career-killer.

Before she can leave Mexico and get back to planning weddings, Kelsey must deal with stubborn detectives, a rekindled romance, and late-night death threats in this smart, funny cozy mystery debut.

Author Bio:
Anna Scott is an author of erotic and romantic books and novellas. The books Anna loves to write are erotic in nature. They swirl around an underlying theme of love, challenge, imminent heartbreak and always end with at least the possibility of a Happily Ever After.
In her youth, Anna would frequently stay awake into the early hours of the morning, typing on an old typewriter. Horrific stories of blood, murder and suicide plagued her young mind until they had to be released onto the page. Her love of writing started at this early age, but over the years, her work has moved from the twisted and morbid to the more lascivious and pleasurable.
Anna attended college in Northern California, after growing up in the Midwest. She worked as an executive in the Finance Industry, until eventually abandoning the suits for a cup of coffee and her laptop.
Today, Anna can be found in her comfortable, red armchair, coffee in hand, staring out at the surrounding fields, dreaming up new and decadent stories. Her love of reading, nature and history has her mind in constant motion, conjuring up new ideas.
That love of reading romantic and erotic books, certainly stemmed from two amazing women. Anna's great-grandmothers one on each side of her family. They were both extremely strong women, with a hidden penchant for sexy romance novels. One of these old books has survived, and was handed down to Anna.
She shares her life with an alpha male of her own, a family and many animals. Anna is known to stop everything at the drop of a hat to rescue an animal. Often driving long distances, she will gather, protect and love them back to enjoying a wonderful life.
Anna began to publish her books, thanks to the encouragement of a dear friend. This special person is always a support, encouraging Anna at every turn. She helps to focus Anna's mind when the many facets of writing get to be too much.
