For fifteen years the award-winning author of The Thin Woman, The Widow's Club, and Down the Garden Path has enchanted readers across the country. Her latest, Bridemaids Revisited, secures her place as the doyenne of malice domestic. With handsome husband Bentley spending quality father-and-twins time away at a jolly holiday camp, Ellie Haskell plans on some quiet redecorating at Merlin's Court. But she's spooked by a letter from three friends of her maternal grandmother, Sophia--half remembered as "the bridesmaids"--who say her grandmother is anxious to get in touch with her. The only problem is that Sophia has been dead for decades. Ellie sets off for the village where these old ladies all live together: a hearty outdoorswoman, a mousy veteran of three marriages, and the bosom pal who abetted Sophia's secret trysts with an unsuitable gentleman.
There, the bridesmaids hold a seance that spurs Ellie into piecing together Sophia's romantic entanglements, their tragic outcome, and a dark and deadly truth surrounding Ellie's own origins. Cannell adds to her "wonderfully dotty cast of characters" (The Denver Post) in a mystery to die for.
