Is she a runaway bride?

Nita has chosen "The Cold Light of Mourning" by Elizabeth J. Duncan, the first book in the Penny Brannigan series. 

On her wedding day, Meg Wynne Thompson disappears between having a manicure and getting her hair done. The quiet Welsh town of Llanelen is stunned by a full police investigation, the arrest of Meg's fiancé, and the death of his father. But manicurist Penny Brannigan, an expatriate Canadian, realizes the woman who came to her salon was an imposter and seeks to find the truth. Duncan, the first Canadian winner of the Minotaur/Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Mystery Novel competition, lulls readers with her soothing prose and depiction of small-town life in Wales and then startles them with a shocker of a denouement. Readers who enjoy Louise Penny, another Canadian mystery author of note, and Charlaine Harris's Aurora Teagarden mysteries will love this one.

    I'm sorry not to be able to be there, but I've just been blown sideways by news that a close friend died yesterday. Good news about Victor [drugs seem to be working] and now this. I've heard about "into each life some rain must fall" but I feel like I've wandered into a monsoon.

    I love the book! But my packing for the move to the new house is behind schedule, so I may not make it tonight. Heading back for another Home Depot run for packing supplies...I hate moving!

    Annie, I am so sorry for your loss! I had a similar shock about two months ago...nothing prepares you for the sudden passing of a dear friend. I am glad to hear Victor's treatment is going well, though. Let me know if I can help in any way.
