Dr. David Wells is more than willing to taste wedding cakes, sample reception menus, and even help the bride in and out of wedding dresses, if it means spending time with her. Soon enough, she’ll be his best friend Alan’s wife… and thus off limits forever.
But when the groom says 'I don't', and runs off with the maid-of-honor, his best man is left to pick up the pieces of the bride's heart. David is more than willing, and as Jane turns to him for support, their friendship blossoms into something much more.
Until Jane's old fears get in the way, and David realizes that to keep her, he must fight not only her hostile family, but ghosts from her past.
