Valentine’s Day is approaching and a bridezilla wants Marcy to embellish her mother’s wedding gown with jewels from her future mother-in-law. When the mother-in-law is robbed and stabbed outside Marcy’s door, the jewels’ origins come into question. Would their value drive someone to murder? Marcy starts investigating and finds the woman’s former employer may have something to hide. Meanwhile, Marcy’s runaway ex-fiancé appears in Tallulah Falls, stirring up her emotions. Is his appearance a coincidence? (OBSIDIAN, Sep., 336 pp., $7.99)
