Book Review for Murder at the Charity Ball by @NellDixon

Days before he's to walk her down the aisle, Kitty's father is arrested for murder. Can Kitty clear his name?

The wedding bells are scheduled to ring for Kitty and Matt in mere days, but as the day draws closer they become a little sidetracked. Kitty's father is in town for the wedding and was invited to stay at Villa Lamora by a wealthy and worldly woman. But when she turns up dead--murdered in her bedroom--suspicion falls to Kitty's dad.

Kitty is determined to believe in her father's innocence. After all, it's not like he was the only one in the house. There is the help, the victim's sister, a young teen and her caregiver, the victim's investor, and her assistant. But who had motive?

The victim had been worth a lot of money. Could it be as simple as someone wanting to get their hands on it? As the crime is investigated, secrets and hidden agendas are revealed. When more lives are threatened, Kitty is even more determined to figure out the puzzle once and for all. But will that come too late? And will it jeopardize her upcoming nuptials? You'll need to read the book for yourself to find out.
