Banais eile, prèasantan a bharrachd, agus cosgais mhòr nan lùib. Tha Anna seachd sgìth dheth, is i aig bòrd nan singilteach a-rithist. Ach an turas seo tha fireannach ann a tha den aon bharail mu bhainnsean, agus moladh dàna aige. Carson nach pòs iadsan? Gheibh iad airgead agus prèasantan mìorbhaileach, agus an uair sin dh’fhaodadh iad dealachadh bho chèile. Dè an cron? Cha deigheadh càil ceàrr.
Relegated to the singletons’ table at yet another wedding, Anna is fed up with forking out for her friends’ extravagant presents. Newlyweds won’t settle for a toaster and a set of towels; they want balloon trips across the Serengeti. If only there was a way for her to enjoy all the treats she’s been lavishing on her friends. And then she meets Donald – equally cynical about weddings and totally up for a charade that will deceive everyone they know.
