Cold Feet, by Karen Pullen
North Carolina Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Stella Lavender is stuck doing drug buys every night when her heart is in homicide. When the bride dies at a wedding Stella is attending with her grandmother, she has the good fortune to be pulled in to help Sheriff's Department Detective Anselmo Morales investigate the murder. Seems like Pullen is beginning a series, as there are many loose ends dangling about to be sorted out later. I'm hoping she decides to cut back on the characters in her next books. Cold Feet has at least 25 characters with speaking parts from the overlapping parts of Stella's life.
