Baker & Taylor
Arriving late at a wedding she was hired to cater, Jane Lawless discovers that the guests have been drugged and that the groom has died, a situation for which she realizes she will be blamed unless she can identify the responsible party. By the author of Hallowed Murder. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
Restaurateur Jane Lawless is thrilled to be catering the wedding of some family friends, Nick and Lauren Clifford, but when Jane arrives at the reception, she's in for a shock of a lifetime-and one that could jeopardize her career. The food has been spiked with hallucinogenic mushrooms and the drug-hazed guests are engaged in dangerously reckless behavior.

When the groom takes a near fatal dive into an empty pool, an investigation begins and Jane turns to her best friend Cordelia Thorn for help in clearing her name. But when Cordelia's sister, Octavia, suddenly deserts her infant daughter on Cordelia's doorstep, Jane is on her own. Events take a turn for the worse when the father of the groom comes up against shocking accusations, and it's up to Jane to uncover the truth.

Once again, Ellen Hart has woven intriguing characters and surprising twists into a complex and absorbing story.

Another in the Jane Lawless continuum and a good one. Jane has finally recovered from her injuries sustained the last few books and feels and acts stronger. Someone uses her catering business to get back at a client for an unrelated crime many years ago. Ms. Hart pulls all the seemingly unrelated threads together to form a good mystery story interwoven with Cordelia and another possible love interest for Jane. All in all, the series just keeps getting better. It's also a plus that it happens here in Minneapolis so you have that hometown feel behind it. I'm only 12 years behind in reading. Hope I catch up soon. I enjoy these stories.
