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.

The fifth Cait Morgan mystery will have you stumbling to catch up to Cait's brilliant mind, and keep you guessing until its shocking conclusion.

Born, raised and educated in Wales, Cathy Ace enjoyed a successful career in marketing and training across Europe for twenty years before migrating to Vancouver. The author of the bestselling Cait Morgan Mysteries, featuring a Welsh Canadian foodie criminologist sleuth, Cathy enjoys living the author's life on rural acreage where she and her husband are helped out in the garden by their two green-pawed chocolate Labradors.
