Murder, With PeacocksBook - 1999
The eccentric preparations that Meg must endure as she returns home to assume the duties of being a bridesmaid at three different weddings in one summer suddenly become much more complicated when a visitor gets himself murdered in her small Virginia hometown. A first novel.
Blackwell North Amer
When Meg Langslow is roped into being a bridesmaid for the nuptials of her mother, her brother's fiancee, and her own best friend, she is apprehensive. Getting the brides to choose their outfits and those of their bridesmaids (and not change their minds three days later), trying to capture the principals long enough to work out details, and even finding peacocks to strut around the garden during the ceremony - these are things Meg can handle. She can brush off the unfortunate oaf who is smitten with her, and take philosophically her disappointment when she learns that the only eligible man in her small Virginia town (and a delightful hunk he is) is of questionable sexual preference. But even Meg is taken aback when the unpleasant former sister-in-law of Meg's soon-to-be stepfather disappears and is later found dead.
While trying to manage being the maid of honor in three weddings, Meg Langslow finds herself in the midst of a mystery when her soon-to-be stepfather's former sister-in-law is found dead

I’m not. If I ever get married, I shall elope. That has now become my prime requirement in a husband. Willingness to elope.
" Only three of them have tails," mother pointed out. " That's because only three of them are peacocks, Mother. The rest are peahens." " Well what do we need them for ? " Mother asked. "They don't add anything to the impression. They're not very attractive." " Maybe not to you, but apparently they are to the peacocks. If we didn't have them around, the peacocks would sulk and wouldn't spread their tails. You know how men are." Mother digested that in silence.
