The seaside town of Fethering is home to Carole Seddon and Jude and a place rife with foul play, as evidenced in the sixth mystery in the series.

Carole's son is getting married to a wonderful girl-with rather odd parents. Not only do they have no interest in meddling with wedding preparations, but the mere thought of publicizing the affair frightens them beyond words.

And when the father of the bride is found brutally murdered, Carole enlists Jude's help in finding an uninvited guest before the festivities become completely funereal.

Baker & Taylor
An engagement party for Carole Seddon's son takes a strange turn when the reclusive father of the bride mysteriously vanishes during the party, only to be found brutally murdered the following morning.

Blackwell North Amer
Carole's estranged relationship with her son Stephen has improved since he started seeing Gaby Martin, and she cannot be more pleased that they've decided to marry in Fethering. She does find it a bit odd, though, that Gaby's parents have no interest in arranging the wedding. Whatever happened to the tradition of the meddling mother-of-the-bride?
Upon finally meeting the Martins, Carole finds that the timid couple not only wishes to avoid the duties of a bride's parents, but that they are terrified at the prospect of publicizing the wedding. They are willing, however, to throw the couple an engagement party - affording Carole the less-than-pleasing prospect of spending time in the company of her ex-husband.
But the dull event turns dead intriguing when the father of the bride disappears - only to be found brutally murdered the following morn. Now, Carole elicits Jude's help in sifting through the guest list - including Gaby's nefarious brother and justice of the peace uncle - before her son marries into a family with a rather suspicious history.
