Image of Footprints in the Sand (Piper Donovan Mysteries)

Chalk up another hit for Clark and her Piper Donovan series, featuring wedding finery, romantic beaches ... and murder. For a girl who isn’t looking for trouble, sometime actress Piper sure knows how to turn up bodies. With mystery, murder and a charming cast of characters who become more lovable with each visit, Footprints is a delightfully devious entry in an ever-improving series.

A wedding in beautiful, romantic Sarasota, Fla., is just the ticket out of New Jersey’s winter weather, and Piper and her family head out to her cousin’s wedding. Not only is she the maid of honor, Piper is going to be creating the sugar sand dollar-festooned wedding cake. With a little luck, her sexy FBI agent boyfriend will be able to get away to join them for a few days. Who knows? He might get some ideas of his own. Too bad things start to go wrong before the big day: a bridesmaid disappears, a neighbor’s car is run off the road and the witness is told to keep quiet. Then a body turns up on the wedding site. As Piper closes in on the answers she puts herself in the sights of a killer who has no compunction about killing her to hide his deadly secrets. (MORROW, Jan., 320 pp., $25.00)
