Charming, unpredictable, and wise.' Marjan Kamali, author of The Stationery Shop
When Larisa Pearl returns to her small seaside home town to manage her beloved great aunt's estate, she's an emotional mess. Larisa has just lost her job and her boyfriend and she's struggling to cope with her mother's failing health. But as she walks past the bridal shop window, a beautiful ivory satin wedding gown catches her eye...
Now, to the delight of everyone in town, Larisa is planning her wedding. She's bought the dress, made floral arrangements and set the date. The only thing she doesn't have is the groom. How did this happen? All she did was try on a dress and let her fantasy take flight.
Lost in a web of her own lies, Larisa must first face some difficult truths, including her mother's fragile future, before she can embrace her family, straighten out her life and open her heart to finding love.
