Read in August, 2011

A successful New York City fashion designer, Madeira Cutler, is asked to return to her small hometown of Mystick Falls in Connecticut to help her baby sister plan her upcoming wedding. When she arrives home, things aren’t going very well for her sister, Sherry. Her soon-to-be mother-in-law is taking over the wedding preparations and isn’t very concerned if the preparations are to Sherry’s liking or not. To make matters worse, her mother-in-law-to-be is seeking the advice and assistance of Sherry’s fiance’s former girlfriend, Jasmine. What a complete slap in the face! Madeira has not intentions of letting this slight against her sister go by without a fight.

When Jasmine continues to make nasty remarks and has a list of enemies a mile long, it’s no surprise when she’s found strangled to death. Unfortunately the murder weapon was the veil to Sherry’s wedding gown. All fingers point to Sherry as the prime suspect, but Madeira is not about to let her sister go to jail she didn’t commit. Along with her detective boyfriend, Nick, they conduct their own investigation.

Madeira has always had a love of fashion, but when an antique wedding gown gives her clues to the murder, she’s beyond shocked. Visions begin to take hold of Madeira as she uses them to learn the truth and clear her sister’s name.

This is the first book in Annette Blair’s “A Vintage Magic Mystery” series and I absolutely loved it. It was a quick, fast-paced, light, read that just left you smiling. It’s a sweet mystery and everything I want in my cozies – a little mystery, a little romance – all rolled up into one nice story.
