Madison Mandelbaum is on top of the world. She's got a loving -- though totally neurotic -- family, two fabulous girlfriends, and best of all, she's head-over-heels in love with Colin Darcy, an investigative reporter for NBC, a distant relation to the Queen, and-most importantly-Maddie's fiance. "Be careful what you wish for "her mother's always fond of saying, but with Colin on her arm, Maddie is certain that everything will finally go right.
With one week to go before the wedding, Maddie receives an anonymous email that suggests that her fiance may not be the man she thinks he is. Is this someone's idea of a pre-wedding joke? Yet as sinister phone calls, text messages, and disturbing clues turn up, all linking Colin to the murder of a sexy callgirl, Maddie realizes that she must get to the bottom of this. "Fast."
As the clock counts down towards what was to be the ceremony of her dreams, Maddie's life is turned into a wild race to find the truth. Between frantic dress fittings, entertaining future in-laws, and putting on a brave face, she and her best friends are propelled into an undercover investigation that plunges them into a seedy underworld of anonymous sex and backroom politics.
As her search brings her ever closer to the knowledge she desperately seeks, Maddie finds her heart being tested in ways she's never dreamed. Determined to take back her life, she discovers just how far someone in love will go to cover up the truth. And along the way, she stumbles upon a shocking secret she "never "saw coming.
