Description

Sometimes the best man isn't even in the wedding party.

Gavin Greene is a hopeless romantic. He's also a professional one: he writes the wedding column for a Pulitzer Prize–winning newspaper, covering spectacular parties from coast to coast. But there's a thin line between being a hotshot reporter on assignment and being a single guy alone on a Saturday night at someone else's wedding.

Everything changes on New Year's when Gavin meets Melinda, a travel writer with enchanting dimples. A moonlit stroll across a Manhattan rooftop seals the deal—until an Aussie with an attitude swoops in and whisks her away before Gavin gets her number.

Gavin crisscrosses New York City to find her again and learns that there's something worse than losing the woman of his dreams: having to write an article about her wedding.

        February 13, 2012
        New York Times “Vows” columnist Sipher balances idealism with journalistic cynicism in his loosely autobiographical debut. Wedding columnist Gavin Greene meets the marvelous Melinda at a party. Gavin is immediately smitten, but he fails to get any contact information. He uses the tidbits he gleaned during their conversation to try to track her down, leading to a series of encounters with women who aren’t Melinda—until he’s assigned to cover her wedding to a guy who obviously isn’t good enough for her. Family and career turmoil add to his introspection about his future, compounded by his obligatory interactions with couples who believe they have found their soul mates. Though somewhat marred by a too-pat ending, the light and witty tale is sure to find an audience among women seeking reassurance that men also carry emotional baggage about weddings and marriage. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider.
