Things are looking up for Lizzie Nichols. She loves her career, and the love of her life, Jean-Luc, has proposed. Life's become a dizzying whirl of wedding gown fittings as Lizzie prepares for her dream wedding in the south of France. But the dream soon becomes a nightmare as the best man, with whom Lizzie might once accidentally have slept - no, really, just slept - announces his lack of support for the couple; Lizzie's Midwestern family can't understand why she doesn't want to have her wedding in the family backyard; and her future French in-laws seem to be luring the groom away from medical school and into investment banking. Is Lizzie really ready to embrace her new role as wife and mistress of Chateau Mirac? Or is she destined to spend the rest of her life as a New York City spinster, in a two-room walk-up with no one for company but the cat from down the street?
