Image of Veil of Night: A Novel

Master storyteller Howard alternates between darkly intense romantic suspense tales and humorous ones. In this case, the humor is back in full force as a wedding planner is suspected of murdering a bridezilla. Howard’s ability to invoke laughter from both characterization and situations make her stories mood-lifting gems. Another certified Howard hit!

Jaclyn Wilde and her mother run an event planning business. In one crazy week, they have five different weddings to coordinate. The biggest problem comes from politically connected bride Carrie Edwards, aka “bridezilla.” Carrie is driving Jaclyn to drink, literally, and it is at a cop bar that Jaclyn hooks up with the sexy detective she crashed into earlier in the day. Her night with Det. Eric Wilder is spectacular. The next day, however, Jaclyn becomes the prime suspect in the “kabobing” of Carrie, and the killer thinks Jaclyn can identify him.
