Josie’s wedding almost doesn’t happen. Lenore, her future mother-in-law, flies in from Boca to help with (i.e. control) Josie and Ted’s wedding. Josie wishes someone would lock up her meddling mother-in-law. She gets that wish. Boy, does she. Lenore is arrested for murder and Josie has to find the real killer before she can walk down the aisle. The county jail is a comedown from the Ritz, where Lenore usually stays.
I describe Josie’s wedding in "Murder Is a Piece of Cake," but I wanted you to see those places, too. My hometown of St. Louis is beautiful, and many of its showcases are affordable – even for newlyweds like Josie and Ted.
Ted proposed to Josie at Tower Grove Park in South St. Louis, on a fall day when the park was ablaze with color. Tower Grove is a Victorian walking park, a gift to the city in 1868 by millionaire Henry Shaw. Josie had just seen a wedding at this bandstand and hoped Ted would propose.
After the wedding, Josie and Ted go to Tower Grove Park, a Victorian walking park, for their wedding pictures. Here's a detail from the Grand Avenue entrance, which really is grand.
