Terror in Taffeta: A Mystery

Marla Cooper (Author) Romy Nordlinger (Narrated by)


Wedding planner Kelsey McKenna is just a few hours away from wrapping up her latest job: a destination wedding in San Miguel de Allende. But just as the priest is about to pronounce them husband and wife, one of the bridesmaids collapses into a floral arrangement. Worst of all, Kelsey discovers that she hasn't just fainted- she's dead. Mrs. Abernathy demands that Kelsey fix the matter, and although she's pretty sure investigating a murder isn't in her contract, crossing the well-connected mother of the bride could be a career-killer. Before she can leave Mexico and get back to planning weddings, Kelsey must deal with stubborn detectives, another dead body, and a rekindled romance in this smart, funny and cozy debut.

About the Author

Marla Cooper was astonished when, at the age of 18, she realized people could actually get paid to write things. So she switched her major from business to advertising much to the relief of her accounting professor and began her career as an advertising copywriter. After moving to San Francisco, she became a freelancer so she could take advantage of perks like working in her pajamas, and now she writes a little bit of everything, including travel writing, web copy, and even the occasional haiku. While ghostwriting a book on destination weddings, she found inspiration for her first novel, Terror in Taffeta-the first in a series about a destination wedding planner.
Romy Nordlinger is a New York City-based actress whose TV credits include roles on Law & Order, All My Children, and One Life to Live. As an audiobook narrator, she has lent her talents to over two hundred titles ranging in genres from romance and self-help to sci-fi and mystery.
