A mystery for anyone who has ever hated a friend's boyfriend

Rachel Benjamin and her friends aren't looking forward to Emma's wedding. The groom is a rat, and nobody can understand what Emma sees in him. So when he turns up dead on the morning of the ceremony no one is all that upset. Not even Emma.

Rachel, who had the good fortune to find Richard floating facedown in the pool, is feeling as if she's woken up in an Agatha Christie novel. It doesn't help that everyone around her seems to have a motive for murder. So, while the cops detain Emma's family and friends, Rachel makes the 'Miss Marple' (minus the grey hair and sensible shoes, of course) and does some digging of her own

Her investigation gets especially tricky when Peter Forrest, the too–good–to–be–true best man, turns out to be both her number–one love interest and her number–one suspect. Yet Rachel can't help remembering the solemn pact she and her friends made back in college–a promise to rescue each other from bad relationships by any means necessary.

Has someone taken the pact too far?
