Award Winning author A.C. Arthur shares her views on writing, books and everything else!
Good Sunday Morning!
“I’m so excited for you, Monica!” Cheyna exclaimed. “You and Alex are one of the greatest couples I know.”
“Thank you,” Monica replied. “And since you did such a fantastic job with the gallery anniversary party last month, I’d like to hire you to help me plan my wedding.”
Cheyna wanted to jump up and down, maybe do a few cartwheels, a back flip and then yell “Yes! Yes! Yes!” over and over again. But she refrained. She sat back in the guest chair and looked Monica Lakefield directly in the eye before responding, “I would be happy to help you, Monica. Have you and Alex set a date? When would you like to get started?”
Monica opened a side desk drawer. She pulled out two white binders. Handing one to Cheyna and keeping the other on her desk, she opened to the first page. Monica looked up to see Cheyna staring at her in anticipation of an answer to her questions, and raised one elegantly arched brow. Cheyna quickly opened the binder.
“The date is December 21st,” Monica stated. “It’s the first day of winter and will be the first day of our married life together.”
Cheyna had seen that printed in gold script on the white sheet of paper that marked the first page of the binder. She swallowed and looked up to Monica once more. “That’s two months from now.”
“Yes it is. Will that be a problem for you?”
“No,” Cheyna quickly replied. “No. That won’t be a problem at all.”
“Good. Then let’s get started. We have a lot to get done in a short period of time. And everything has to be perfect.” Monica flattened her hand on the book and for the first time since Cheyna had come into her office, Monica Lakefield smiled before saying, “I’m getting married.”

THE WINTER WEDDING
Premier event designer, Cheyna Dansfield, just landed the most talked about event of the year—the wedding of art mogul, Monica Lakefield and communications guru, Alexander Bennett. Hard work and dedication has brought Cheyna this far, now she refuses to let a gorgeous man and the risk of murder charges threaten her future.
Public relations dynamo, Logan Williams, was hired to create a family-friendly image for the Lakefield Galleries. The upcoming Lakefield/Bennett wedding could be a stellar media splash and add another feather to his professional cap—if he can keep his hands off the gorgeous and uptight wedding planner.
Logan and Cheyna attempt to keep their passionate affair a secret until the dead bodies turn up and Cheyna becomes the prime suspect.
