The wedding that takes place in the ballroom of the 5-star Palm Tree Hotel in Key West is upended when Flora, the bride, is murdered in the bridal suite. The groom, Mark Morris, a physical therapist, is arrested by the sheriff. Meanwhile, Lloyd, the bartender, and Lori, his wife and concierge, set out to clear Mark, who is in deeper trouble than he’s ever known. Lloyd and Lori suspect that the killer may be one of the people who visited Flora after the wedding—maybe the stepmother, or one or both of her twin sisters, or her first cousin, or, possibly, the chambermaid. Mark is prosecuted in a lengthy courtroom trial for the murder of his wife. Lloyd and Lori race against time to identify the killer before the jury would render a guilty decision for a crime the defendant didn’t commit.
