Pippa McGee is a bridesmaid. Again. Taking a weekend break from her freewheeling life as a travel writer and toxic bachelorette, Pippa returns to her hometown to serve as yet another bridesmaid at yet another wedding. From the moment she gets off the plane, it`s a disaster. Jet-lagged and behind schedule, Pippa makes a spectacle of herself, downing martinis and hitting on men. She struggles home tipsy, only to discover that her widowed tyrannical, publishing mogul father has had a heart attack. Lying frail in his hospital bed, he has only one thing on his mind: he needs an editor for one of his magazines. Pippa volunteers, excited. What’s the magazine? Travel? Politics? No. He needs her to run Wedding Bells. How can Pippa McGee adapt to a 9-to-5 life? Write about puffy dresses after hiking in Bali? Deal with being reminded on a daily basis that she is 29 years old and completely, utterly single? In a cruel twist of fate, her dad assigns her a publishing mentor. Ian Gray is both her father’s vice-president, and the man she’d hit on unsuccessfully at her friend`s wedding.
