Investigating the murder of a reverend from a local wedding chapel, zookeeper Teddy Bentley discovers that the victim was actually an escaped convict and that every wedding he has performed is invalid, a case the implicates Teddy's mother and Teddy herself.
Zookeeper Teddy Bentley takes Alejandro, the Gunn Zoo llama, to a Monterey Bay-area Renaissance Faire. When she discovers the body of the Reverend Victor Emerson, owner of the local wedding chapel, dressed in his royal robes as Henry the Eighth, it appears as if Aljandro stomped the man to death, but a closer look reveals a crossbow dart in the man's back. And the "reverend" is really an escaped convict, and every marriage he's performed in the past twenty years is null and void! When Teddy's mother Caro becomes the chief suspect, Teddy puts her crime solving skills to work.
