The Walled Flower by Lorraine Bartlett
Katie Bonner has a full plate - not only does she manage the Artisan Alley, but she's been tapped by an acquaintance to step in as the Maid of Honor (the wedding is a week away) with all the accompanying duties (favors, shower, etc.) but she also has to move and she hasn't found a new apartment yet.
When making a courtesy call on new neighbors who bought an old mansion that Katie had wanted to buy and turn into a B&B, she is allowed to help with the renovations and a smack with a mallet on the wall reveals a skeleton within.
The ensuing escapades related to the apartment search, wedding preparations and interviews with suspects carry the reader on a bumpy ride that entertains thoroughly.
