Jude Deveraux sets wedding bells ringing in idyllic Edilean, Virginia -- but long-hidden secrets may change love's course.
Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating their wedding, just weeks away. Every detail, down to her heirloom dress, is ready. But when Greg gets a phone call during the night and leaves without explanation, and a stranger suddenly appears in her apartment and refuses to leave, Sara realizes her fiancé was not who he claimed to be ... and that Mike Newland, her best friend's brother, has crashed into her life on an undercover mission to track a notorious criminal frighteningly close to Sara. Winning Sara's trust is the detective's first task, but Mike never counted on revealing his own intensely private ties to Edilean or sharing secrets he's never told anyone else. As the pair works together to solve two mysteries, their growing love begins to heal each of them in ways they never could have imagined.
