It’s Cait and Bud’s wedding weekend and for the first time she feels like a bride—or at least, she’s supposed to. But then the rain won’t quit, the supposedly romantic Welsh castle feels creepy, and there’s a dead body on the stairs.
What first appears to have been the untimely, unfortunate, and accidental death of their wedding choirmaster quickly reveals itself to have been a murder. And when a series of mysterious events occur around the castle, Cait, Bud, and Cait’s sister Sian tackle the case of The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes, attempting to solve the mystery before another sinister event can ruin their destination wedding.
I have not read the other books in the series, but there was enough of the back stories to make this a stand alone. You will not be lost. Cait and Bud only have Cait’s sister as a wedding guest. When they find a corpse at the foot of the stairs and the weather not cooperating and taking out the bridge it prevents the marriage taking place as they can not arrive or any help for that matter.
I was taken in from the very beginning the clues that Cait finds keep you glued to the book you do not want to put it down. As they try to solve the murder and find treasure. you will not be disappointed in this book at all. The author does as great job. I will be checking out the other books in this series.
