But there's something in the air besides festive cheer: the town's doctor and nurses have been bludgeoned to death, and Lily's detective boyfriend has followed an eight-year-old kidnapping case straight to Bartley. It just might have something to do with the murders ...and with her sister's fiance. With only three days to the wedding, Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister promises to love, hour and obey a killer.
