Weddings always make Marla Shore shed a tear of joy, and she’s elated to attend her friend Jill’s reception. Marla’s own nuptials are weeks away, and she’s busy following her frenetic to-do list. Her plans go awry when she discovers Jill’s matron of honor dead under the cake table, a knife embedded in her chest. Lots of folks aren’t sorry to see Torrie go, especially since the bride’s sister knew their deepest secrets. But when suspicion falls upon Jill, Marla wonders if her dear friend is truly innocent. She’d better untangle the snarl of suspects and iron out the clues before the killer highlights her as the next victim.
How did you decide to create a trailer and what was your experience?
I used Window Movie Maker. You can go to my blog on the topic at http://nancyjcohen.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/how-to-make-a-book-trailer/
It was really fun picking out people who looked like my suspects on the royalty-free image sites. It’s important to purchase your photos and music with the proper rights.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Shear Murder, the tenth book in my Bad Hair Day mystery series, finds hairdresser Marla Shore as a bridesmaid at her friend Jill’s ceremony. Things go terribly wrong when Marla finds the matron of honor—Jill’s sister—dead under the cake table.
What is it about weddings that can bring out the worst in people? Is it that their passions are aroused? That they’re reminded of their own disappointments? That their envy of the happy couple’s joy drives them to despair? Certainly, weddings are a popular setting for murder mysteries, often becoming the theme for an entire series.
My Bad Hair Day series has been building up to a wedding, and what better place to stage another murder? Will Marla and Dalton make it up the altar, or will the killer get to her first?
