Murder Between the Lines by Radha Vatsal | A Solve-the-Mystery Blog Tour, Clue #2

The White House Wedding

A Solve-the-Mystery Blog Tour by Radha Vatsal


At 8:30 PM on Saturday, December 1915, President Woodrow Wilson married Mrs. Edith Bolling Galt. The new Mrs. Wilson would go on to become one of the 20th Century’s most powerful first ladies and shepherd the United States through turbulent times. 

 In the course of this week-long blog tour, I describe four different aspects of their wedding plan: The Location, Guest List and Attendants, Ceremony and Officiants, Dress and Flowers. The wedding went off as arranged, except for one significant last-minute change — which provides an insight into the future First Lady’s personality. 

Your mission is to guess what changed and why. The answer will be revealed in the final blog post. 

For more on the president and Edith Bolling/Wilson’s relationship, see the Introduction on Katherine’s Chronicle

A Staged Murder by Jo A. Hiestand | Blog Tour with Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway


The Blurb

Bonfire Night! The four hundred-year-old tradition of burning the straw effigy is beginning in Upper Kingsleigh, England. The torch extends… But it’s no mock figure at the end of the rope; it’s the body of a man, an American tourist. Brenna Taylor, Derbyshire C.I.D., is assigned to the case on a team of detectives under Detective-Chief Inspector Geoffrey Graham. It is the chance Brenna has been waiting for, and she is anxious to impress him.

Most villagers suspect an outsider as the killer. But when the frost-covered body of a resident is discovered, apprehension shifts and suspects multiply. Among them are the American's brother-in-law, still angry over his sister's death; the husband, who fears his wife will desert him for the American; the inebriated, penniless uncle, who clings to his nephew's fortune tighter than a cork in a wine bottle. Then Brenna becomes the target of a series of frightening pranks — the work of a harassing male colleague, or a deadly warning to leave the case? Her hunt is personal now.


A Staged Murder is the newly rewritten/edited edition of Death of an Ordinary Guy
(A Taylor & Graham Mystery #1), first published in 2004.
