A groom arrested for murder can put a crimp in anybody's wedding, no matter who designed the bridal gown. So when the nuptials of her best friend are threatened, maid-of-honor Lee Alvarez -- the thirty-four-year old combination of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovitch's Stephanie Plum - heads south of the border in search of the real killer. Not only does this half Latina, half WASP, and 100% detective discover the well-organized world of plundered Mesoamerican relics, but stumbles across the man of her dreams. Is he too good to be true? Probably. But has she just tasted the best tamales ever? Absolutely. So the day can't be all bad. With the help of the rest of the Alvarez Family, Never-Had-A-Bad-Hair-Day blueblood mother, Lila Hamilton Alvarez, brother and computer genius, Richard; favorite uncle, "T o" Mateo; and Tugger, her energetic orange and white cat, Lee tries to follow her own sage advice, 'When Cupid's wings start flapping, take cover' because love and murder can't be far behind. Ol A Wedding To Die For is the second novel in a series of humorous murder mysteries involving the Alvarez Family, owners of Silicon Valley's successful Discretionary Inquiries.

About the Author
After studying drama at the University of Miami in Florida, Heather went to Manhattan to pursue a career. There she wrote short stories, novels, comedy acts, television treatments, ad copy, commercials, and two one-act plays, which were produced at several places, including Playwrights Horizon. Once, she even ghostwrote a book on how to run an employment agency. She was unemployed at the time. One of her first paying jobs was writing a love story for a book published by Bantam called Moments of Love. She had a deadline of one week but promptly came down with the flu. Heather wrote "The Sands of Time" with a raging temperature, and delivered some pretty hot stuff because of it. Her stint at New York City's No Soap Radio - where she wrote comedic ad copy - helped develop her long-time love affair with comedy. Her first novel of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, Murder is a Family Business, won the Single Titles Reviewers' Choice Award 2011, and the second, A Wedding to Die For, received the 2012 finalist nods from both Global and EPIC for Best eBook Mystery of the Year. The third of the series, Death Runs in the Family, has already received rave reviews. Stand-alone noir mystery, Death of a Clown, is steeped in Heather's family history. She is the daughter of real-life Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus folk. Her mother was a trapeze artist/performer and father, an elephant trainer. Heather brings the daily existence of the Big Top to life during World War II, embellished by her own murderous imagination. Death of a Clown is published by The Wives of Bath Press, March 1, 2013
