by Nikki Stern
A dead brunette dressed like a bride shows up in Pickett County, Tennessee, the latest victim of an elusive killer known as the Wedding Crasher. Sam Tate is Pickett County’s poker-playing, yoga-loving new sheriff, a woman with a troubled past and an uncertain future. Even as she tracks the predator, she wonders: Who can she trust? Why is she a target? Can she stop more people from dying on her watch?
“Stern weaves a suspenseful and intriguing story, and surprising revelations will keep readers guessing about the murderer’s identity. An absorbing and surprising mystery tale.”
“An exceptionally well-done story . . . lingers on the palate like a fine wine.”
--D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review.
“Nikki Stern’s The Wedding Crasher possesses the claustrophobic menace that makes small-town crime so terrifying, with an ending you won’t forget. In Sam Tate she’s created a bona fide 21st century heroine with a wound as big as the city she left behind and a heart as genuine as the town she’s come to protect."
--David Corbett, award-winning author, The Long Lost Love Letters of Doc Holliday
