Heather Haven about this book: The 2nd book of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, A Wedding to Die For, came about after reading a story – so bazaar I could hardly believe it was true – in the New York times. Sixty-plus members of an Egyptian Family were arrested for pilfering from a lesser known Egyptian king's tomb and had been for generations! This large family would take one article, sell it on the black market, and spread the wealth, educating and bettering themselves. After several decades, many of them came into positions of importance, in museums and customs, thereby ensuring even greater success. They only got caught after years of staying below the radar, when one of them got greedy and substituted a fake for an antiquity in a museum in which he was the assistant curator. It blew the whole thing wide open. I was mesmerized by this story! I transferred the renegade family to Mexico, threw in a wedding gone awry and a falsely accused groom in the States, and was off and away! It was a lot of fun!!
