Ellie Quicke, although comfortably re-married to her best friend Thomas, is still inclined to act hastily. When she took in a young rape victim, she was aware that the commitment might become a burden, but she didn’t expect it to become an invitation to murder. Although Mia’s step-family are in prison, violence still seems to dog her every move . . . and now Ellie’s too.
Mia’s best friend Ursula is eager to help, but is distracted by her upcoming wedding – as is Ellie’s ambitious daughter Diana. Both want Ellie to stage their wedding receptions.
Which of the men from Mia’s past is responsible for terrorising her now? And if one wedding can turn a household upside down, what havoc will two do to Ellie’s quiet home life? Most important of all, can she wear the same outfit for both?
