Wedding Plans

By Monica Albertson of 
Peg Cochran's Cranberry Cove Series

It’s snowing outside and Greg and I are curled up on the couch.  Did I tell you what my Christmas present was?  If you could see me, you’d see how much I’m smiling.  Let me show you.  See?  The ring finger of my left hand?  Isn’t it beautiful?  It was Greg’s grandmother’s and he wanted me to have it as an engagement ring.

We’re cuddled here talking about our wedding.

“How do you feel about late September or early October?” Greg said, getting up to peer out the window.

“That would be lovely.  The weather is usually gorgeous with the leaves beginning to turn color and the cranberry vines bursting with berries.”

“Since Lauren and Jeff plan to be married at the farm, I wondered how you’d feel about the Cranberry Cove Yacht Club?  Your stepmother said she can get us an ‘in’ to use their function room. The view out over Lake Michigan is spectacular.”

“That sounds perfect.  We can have the wedding early afternoon and do a champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception.”

“I like that idea.”  Greg sat back down and began nibbling on my ear.  “And maybe our wedding night at the Cranberry Cove Inn.  The Presidential Suite, of course.”

“I could go for that.”  I giggled and snuggled closer to Greg.

His kisses trailed down my neck.  “Let’s just hope we don’t encounter any dead bodies,” he said.

I laughed.  “I think I’ve come across my share of dead bodies already.”

Will there be a dead body?   

Monica and Greg request the pleasure of your company at the Cranberry Cove Yacht Club for their wedding reception this spring in book #4.

 Meanwhile, enjoy the latest adventures of Lucille and Flo!

The USA Today bestselling author of Unholy Matrimony is back with a new Lucille Mystery! This time Lucille must track down the killer of a diet guru who had a lot more to lose than just a few extra pounds.

With her best friend Flo’s wedding approaching, Lucille is desperate to trim down and joins Weigh to Lose, a weight-loss program led by a clipboard-wielding harridan who’s as unattractively thin as she is shrill. When the bossy woman turns up dead with her throat slashed and a tasty-looking cannoli stuffed in her mouth, Lucille figures she got her just desserts.

But when the local police come up empty-handed, Lucille sinks her teeth into the mystery and narrows the list of suspects to a husband with a wandering eye, a sexy young Swedish au pair, and a gambler deep in debt to the wrong people. Until one of the suspects becomes the victim of another gruesome murder.

Afraid she’s bitten off more than she can chew and worried that she might be next on the killer’s list, Lucille puts her own neck on the line with a wild plan to trap the culprit and tip the scales of justice.

“If you want a very funny murder mystery, then this book is for you. I’ve never laughed so hard while reading before.” —Goodreads, on Unholy Matrimony, Book 2 in the USA Today bestselling Lucille Mystery Series
