Regan, Nora and Kit head into the city to the exclusive bridal designers Alfred & Charisse to pick up Regan's gown. When they arrive at the apartment building that the designers work from, they quickly discover a mess with a shredded bridal gown covered with drops of blood and no other gowns hangin on the rack. Regan heads into the back to Alfred and Charisse's quarters to find them tied up and gagged in their bedroom with their safe standing broken and empty!! Besides money ($20,000) and jewelry, the thieves have stolen 4 bridal gowns and shredded one so now 5 brides including Regan have no gowns!! Alfred quickly hires Regan to work on the case and Regan also calls Jack to report it to the police as well as 911.

How Regan meets the other 4 brides and what they and their fiances are like as well as their reactions to the missing gowns is intriguing and hilarious!! The reader also gets to know WHO did the robbery and has the gowns and that pair of thieves ineptness is amazing!! A fun read with the usual Carol Higgins Clark happy endings!!
