'A very exciting read' Patricia Gibney


Winter brings more than fierce Atlantic storms to the tourist town of Kylebeggan, County Kerry. On a cold January night a woman is found murdered and laid out in her wedding dress. The town is shocked, but there's more to come. February brings a second murder. And when taxi driver Ellie Gillespie collects a bride-to-be from a hen party - and later discovers the woman has been killed in a similar way to the other women - Ellie decides to get involved.


The gardai, mayor, and tourist board are desperate to minimise the negative publicity. But with the Special Crime Squad drafted in from Dublin and international media in town, it's becoming harder and harder to manage the story.


Ellie has her suspicions about a possible killer. She shares her thoughts with local journalist Cormac Scully, prompting him to dig into past secrets of the town. Can Ellie and Cormac figure out who it is before the Bride Collector strikes again?
