Ashley Stockingdale is about to marry the God-fearing man of her dreams, who "looks like Hugh Jackman on a good day." Unfortunately, her wedding planner is determined to turn Ashley's fairy tale into a fright fest. Worse, Ashley can't even fire her—she's her future sister-in-law.

Turmoil on the job and problems with her housemate erase all sanity in Ashley's life. Are a lively sense of humor (and fashion) and her faith in God enough to work a miracle and get her to the altar in her Vera Wang gown? Or is she doomed to don a swoopy-hoopy take-off on Scarlett O'Hara?

Chick lit fans will giggle and grit their teeth along with Ashley as she romps in high style across the pages of Billerbeck's latest. The plot overflows with the endearing, madcap absurdity expected of the genre while exploring questions more serious than which shoes to wear to dinner. (Jun., 288 pp., $13.99)
