Izzy is at a hen night when one of the guests is killed in a bizarre incident involving concrete. She is convinced it is murder and together with her cousin Penny embarks upon an investigation into the death…
Izzy and Penny find themselves investigating another murder when one of Izzy’s old friends is killed during a hen party. There are several suspects and potential motives to explore. Meanwhile they are also trying to construct a guest’s dress based on Bjork’s infamous swan dress.
Penmy and Izzy and ably assisted in their murder investigation by Dr Denise and Aubrey so the murder side of the plot felt more prominent in this book than in the previous ones. The dress making still plays a key role and I enjoyed the backdrop of the wedding to underpin the plot. On the romantic side, Izzy is enjoying her new relationship whilst Penny is still torn between two men.
The Swan Dress Murders was another hugely enjoyable book in a fab series. The tone is wonderfully warm and quirky. Little instances of humour make this series such an enjoyable read. The fifth instament comes out next month and I will be first in the queue!

A wedding is a cause for celebration. Not only do dressmakers Penny and Izzy get an invite to the big day but they have an unusual dress commission to complete for one of the guests.
It seems Penny’s only problem is deciding which potential boyfriend to take as her plus-one guest — practical handyman Aubrey or cultured fabric expert Oscar.
But bigger problems arise when the maker of the wedding cake is found dead in the grounds of the stately home where the wedding is to take place.
And when another key individual in the wedding plans is also murdered, it seems like someone has deadly plans to prevent this marriage.
Can Penny and Izzy unravel the mystery and solve this crime before the big day is fatally ruined?
