One wedding. Two feuding families. Three suspects.
Daphne Jones has travelled with her cute-as-a-button camper Bluebell to the outback town of Little Bridges to officiate a wedding at a beautiful rural home. Such a perfect setting. But not so perfect people are determined to stop the union and before the day is done, a member of the bridal party ends up face down in the swimming pool.
She's no detective nor a spring chicken, but Daphne does love a puzzle and her gut tells her this was no accident.
Amid old family feuds, resentful relatives, and missing money, there are plenty of suspects, and none of them appreciates Daphne snooping in their business, but with a heart of gold and a way with words, this celebrant sleuth is not giving up. Unless the killer finds her first...
The Daphne Jones Mysteries are later in life camping cozies with a travelling wedding officiant and a regional, small-town Aussie twist. A light and quirky story with a nosy main character.
They usually own a bakery or a bookstore after divorcing cheating husbands. The star of this cosy mystery is cut from a different cloth. Married to a caring man who she loves dearly, Daphne is a celebrant for weddings and other rites of passage. A gentle soul who is no pushover for anyone, she reasons her way to solutions with the help of her husband. A refreshing change from the typical cosy mystery plot.
