Celebrant Sleuth: I do...or die

'I buried my father,married my sister and sorted the missing will.'

Quinn, a celebrant with style and a few obsessions, but a good heart,solves quirky problems,mysteries and the occasional murder at weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies in her country town.

Ex-actor with a great voice who writes eologies to die for! Not forgetting a few quotable 'Quinn's Laws of Relativity' . A romantic, but asexual , Quinn lives with her long term partner Art who runs community Channel Zero.

The workstyle of a celebrant is never routine. Fake I.D. Fraud. Fights, even to the death ,over wills and inheritance...Mislaid rings.Lost bride. Food poisoning. Clients of various ages  and cultures are well looked after.  Even vintage millionairess Flora with the much young lover who might be a con- artist.

Quinn solves most problems,but not always in the expected way.
