Summary

Summary

Sometimes the best man isn’t even in the wedding party.

Gavin Greene is a hopeless romantic. He’s also a professional one: he writes the wedding column for a Pulitzer Prize–winning newspaper, covering spectacular parties from coast to coast. But there’s a thin line between being a hotshot reporter on assignment and being a single guy alone on a Saturday night at someone else’s wedding.

Everything changes on New Year’s when Gavin meets Melinda, a travel writer with enchanting dimples. A moonlit stroll across a Manhattan rooftop seals the deal—until an Aussie with an attitude swoops in and whisks her away before Gavin gets her number.

Gavin crisscrosses New York City to find her again and learns that there’s something worse than losing the woman of his dreams: having to write an article about her wedding.
