Hat designer Missy DuBois caters to the sophisticated Southern bride at her hat shop, Crowning Glory, on Louisiana's Great River Road. Hired to craft a veil for a socialite getting married at Morningside Plantation means Missy can bask in the height of antebellum atmosphere. But when the bride is found dead in a women's bathroom, Missy finds herself entangled in one unceremonious murder.
The list of suspects includes a gaggle of bridesmaids shedding nary a tear and a family with no shortage of enemies. It seems anyone at the mansion may have done away with the bride-to-be. While Missy has Southern charm to spare, she's going to need more than manners and a manicure to put a hat pin on this murderous affair.
