Commit a crime. Save a child.
Mercy Watts is off to Colorado for a ski trip with her boyfriend and his parents. She thinks her biggest problem will be pretending to be a normal girlfriend.

Mercy figures she can fit it in between trips up the lift and dips in the hot tub. Simple, right? Not quite. Before she has a chance to do much of anything a brutal crime is committed and Mercy becomes a suspect. Before she knows it she’s saddled with a pint-sized partner, a stalker, and a ticking clock. All she has to do is solve a crime in order to commit a crime. A child’s life hangs in the balance. No pressure.
The Fibonacci family saved Mercy Watts’ life and now she owes them a favor. Calpurnia Fibonacci calls on Mercy to make good. When you’re dealing with a powerful mafia family, refusing isn’t an option. So Mercy travels to Paris, home of the Louvre, catacombs, and secrets, to search for the identity of a woman glimpsed for just a moment on the fashionable Rue Cler and some answers to a few family mysteries of her own. To make matters worse, Chuck and Aaron tag along and they have agendas of their own. With the mafia and the shadowy Klinefeld Group involved, finding the wife of Riley will be much more dangerous than she ever expected.
Desperate to see her pregnant daughter Bernadette married before the baby comes, Lucille is engrossed in all things wedding. Nothing will distract her from planning this Mazzarella main event. Nothing, that is, except for the murder of the mother of the groom.
Just when things couldn’t possibly get any worse, Lucille is named as the prime suspect, and it’s a race against time as she and her best friend Flo struggle with shady financial dealings, a family that isn’t at all what it seems, a groom that might not be all man, and a little bundle of joy that might make an appearance before the mother can say I do.

“If you want a very funny murder mystery, then this book is for you. I've never laughed so hard while reading before.” —Goodreads
