THE DATE IS BOOKED. CAN THE WEDDING BE SAVED? Save the Date is a delightfully charming novel from New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews.

Floral designer Cara Kryzik is about to score the wedding of a lifetime—one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for Savannah society nuptials. But trouble comes when you least expect it, and in one awful morning, it all rains down on Cara. Her most faithful companion, Poppy, has either run away or been dognapped. Her refrigerator is on the blink, turning twelve thousand dollars’ worth of gorgeous blooms into roadkill. And if that’s not enough, the supposed dognapper, Jack Finnerty, turns up at her latest wedding, refusing to admit he has her dog.

But if Cara can pull off the lavish Trapnell-Strayhorn wedding, the payday will solve all her problems—even the looming one involving celebrated florist Cullen Kane, who is moving into her turf. The nuptials are in six weeks but the bride, Brooke Trapnell, is acting strangely (even for a bride), and Brooke’s stepmother is becoming Cara’s biggest headache. What Cara needs is to focus—which is not easy when Jack Finnerty keeps turning up with Cara in his sights…and seduction on his mind. Then, just when Cara thinks she’s getting it together, the bride spirals into a shocking crisis. Will this event end in happily ever after—or does fate have something else in store?
