Veil of Night Paperback
by Linda Howard
Jaclyn Wilde is a wedding planner who loves her job - until the bride whose wedding she is organising is brutally killed, with everyone involved pointing fingers at everyone else.
Jaclyn, at least, isn't a suspect, but only because she has an alibi.
The others, from the cake-maker to the florist to the wedding-gown seller, are practically dancing in the streets because Carrie Edwards, a bridezilla of mythic nastiness, has met her end. Eric Wilder is the detective assigned to the case. There's too much evidence implicating too many people and compounding his problems is Jaclyn Wilde who keeps interfering with him, distracting him and somehow fouling up everything.
To top things off, somehow she becomes the focus of the killer, and he finds himself with a completely different problem.

Review by wyvernfriend
This one was nearly a 4, the couple in this story sparked off each other well, but in some ways it felt a bit rushed, still a good story.Jaclyn Wilde is an event planner, mostly weddings and one of her weddings is with a bride who isn't much liked, when that bride turns up dead after an argument Jaclyn is one of the suspects, and Jacob Wilder, the detective has to investigate her thoroughly, to keep everything above board, he probably shouldn't be investigating but the other detective in the area is on holidays. The intrusion into her life irritates Jaclyn, but Jacob is getting under her skin and she's not sure she wants to run away.Things get complicated when the killer turns his attention on Jaclyn.I liked it, the two were great fun and I appreciated why Jacob had to be so thorough. An enjoyable romance with thriller aspects.
