What would you do if your husband came home with $25,000 in cash for your twin daughter’s weddings with no explanation as to where it came from, nothing except a suspicious little smile? What of the small fact that the police are looking for a suspect in the robbery of a $25,000 cash deposit at the very same bank he works for? Such is the situation Annie Peterson faces in the opening pages of The Wedding Caper.
After spending a little time in “Dear-Lord,-please-show-me-if-my-husband-robbed-the-bank” prayer, Annie begins searching the Internet for information on crime solving. She soon stumbles on an amazing little course from InvestigativeSkills.com for the bargain price of $150. “What was $150.00 in the grand scheme of things? This money – albeit borrowed at 21 percent interest would buy my husband’s freedom.”
And so, with her daily scripture and her daily crime-solving lesson, Annie begins her investigation to prove her husband’s innocence and solve the Clark County Savings and Loan robbery, or was it burglary? That would be the first thing on her list to figure out. In the midst of the investigation, she discovers and nurtures unlikely relationships, gets carried away with suspicions, and discovers just how tough all this investigative work can become. With two daughters needing her attention for wedding details, a puppy developing separation anxiety, and the suspicion sitting between Annie and her husband, will she be able to focus on solving the crime or will it all just become too overwhelming to deal with?
