“It was the eve of Melanie and David’s wedding, and Melanie was the happiest she’s ever been. But something went terribly wrong that night. Melanie was late to her own engagement party. She was found murdered in her cottage, located behind the estate. Her handsome fiancé, David, went to find her. He became the murderer’s next victim.
