Publisher's Summary

Regan Reilly and her fiance, Jack "no relation" Reilly, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, are getting married! Regan had the perfect dress made by two young designers on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Arriving at the bridal salon to pick up her gown, Regan discovers the shop has been broken into, the designers bound and gagged, and wedding dresses for four of the April brides (her dress included) are missing. A fifth dress is in shreds on the floor. Even though it's a week before her wedding, Regan gets on the case, and in the process she meets an unusual mix of brides and grooms-to-be, or, perhaps "not-to-be". Over at One Police Plaza, Regan's bridegroom, Jack, is trying to solve a perplexing series of bank robberies. The robber, nicknamed "The Drip" by the NYPD because he always strikes during rainstorms, has been eluding the police for months. Jack is determined to crack the case before his upcoming nuptials.
Carol Higgins Clark fuses the two seemingly unrelated mysteries with an ingenious twist, taking readers from the streets of New York City, to the casinos of Atlantic City, and finally to that most popular wedding spot, the one and only Las Vegas. She weaves a web of mystery around a charming, humorous tale of five April brides and the trials and tribulations they face planning their weddings.


What the Critics Say

"With her usual cast of quirky characters, Clark's lighthearted romp will keep readers guessing who will and who won't make it to the altar." (Publishers Weekly)

Nice Summertime Listen

A typical Carol Higgins Clark/Regan Reilly book - fast-paced, light-hearted and funny. I enjoyed all of the subplots that unfolded during the search for the wedding dress thieves. I'd love to have these characters as friends - life would NEVER be boring. This was the perfect audio book for a hot, sunny summer drive.
