Stop the Presents! Murder at Mary A. Felo's Bridal Shower.
Mary A. Felo is finally tying the knot with her high school sweetheart, Harry Iznace - a local proctologist in the tiny town of Mystical Falls. Ima Gudfrend is Mary's best pal since childhood and is hosting a bridal shower for Mary in her home.
Mary gave Ima a guest list full of women with intertwined histories and sordid pasts - but they are all friends &/or family of Mary, so Ima didn't have a choice but to write each of their names down on the invitations.
Ima has planned an exicting soiree in celebration of the bride and hopes that all goes well at the shower for her best friend's sake!
