From the Publisher
Annotation Hard-working investigating judge of the Burren, Mara, is in the midst of preparations for her wedding to the kingdom's ruler, King O'Brien on Christmas. But just as it seems Mara might have an undisrupted day of celebration, a murder in the church puts her back to work. The intended victim was Mara's husband-to-be, although his cousin suffered in his stead. This is the fourth installment in Cora Harrison's popular and critically lauded historical Irish mystery series.
