It's June, which means weddings, which means big trouble. At least it does for Jaine Austen, my favorite super-sleuth and the handiwork of my wife, Laura Levine. All right, it's a shameless plug - so what? "Killing Bridezilla," a stirring saga of murder, mayhem and bridesmaids out for revenge, is just out and the notices have been nifty. Laura will be signing books this Saturday at 2 p.m. at Mysteries to Die For in Thousand Oaks, and the following Saturday (June 21) at noon at the Westwood Public Library. She’ll be joined in Westwood by fellow mystery author Richard Jordan.
