A Mourning Wedding

Carola Dunn: A Mourning Wedding (UK 2011)

From the Publisher:
Murders disturb a family wedding in this the thirteenth excellent mystery in the Daisy Dalrymple series.
The inimitable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher and her husband Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher seem to get a reprieve from their sleuthing duties when they are invited to the wedding of their friend, Lucy Fotheringay.

Lucy's grandfather is hosting the ceremony at his beautiful estate and so it promises to be a typical affair with hordes of gossipy aunts and other colourful, but not necessarily pleasant relatives. Daisy meets all these characters and observes the ensuing familial fraternization with a certain kind of amusing nonchalance. That is, until Lucy's great aunt is found strangled to death in her bed. Lucy, in the meantime, has arranged to meet her betrothed in the conservatory, but when she arrives she finds him trying to revive her uncle, who has died-or has he been murdered? And just like that a normally celebratory occasion turns suspicious.

Now Daisy must sift through a throng of relatives-aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents- once wedding guests and now murder suspects. And she must find the killer quickly before another family member becomes a corpse.

A Mourning Wedding

Carola Dunn: A Mourning Wedding (USA 2005)

From the Publisher:
Carola Dunn's inimitable sleuth, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, returns in another delightfully witty mystery set in 1920s England, where she must unearth a cunning adversary who views a wedding party as an invitation to murder...

Everyone loves a wedding, and not even a nasty bout of morning sickness could keep Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher away when the bride-to-be is her childhood friend, Lucy Fotheringay. But the nuptials take a somber turn when Lucy's great-aunt, Lady Eva Devenish, is strangled in her bed. There's no shortage of likely suspects: Lady Eva collected scandalous gossip on the upper crust, and then there are those who stand to benefit financially from Lady Eva's demise -- a list that includes Lucy. But Daisy's friend may have more to fear than unjust accusations. Before Detective Chief Inspector Alex Fletcher can get to the bottom of Lady Eva's death, Lucy's uncle dies in suspicious circumstances. Has one of the branches of the Fotheringay family tree turned poisonous, or is there a murderous stranger on the premises? Either way, Daisy and Alex will need to move quickly to stop a killer intent on turning a celebration into a funeral...
