This was a short story I thoroughly enjoyed reading, and is set in 1800s. Ella is a very determined bride to be. When she stumbles upon a body on the morning of her wedding. It turns out the body belongs to her maid of honour. Her boss insists she has to investigate the case, given that the evidence points to her soon to be husband. And she has only two hours before her wedding to find the murderer, clear her fiancée of all the charges and get married. Besides being a determined bride, I found Ella’s character to be witty through her thoughts and dialogue. Ms. Oberth wrote a very satisfying end of the story, with an unexpected turn of events.
I highly recommend this short story, and I’m looking forward to read more of Ms. Oberth’s stories.
