A few days before her wedding, Annie receives devastating news. After
her mother was murdered when she was young, Annie was raised by
her Aunt Faye and her cousin Clary. The man who killed her mother has
been in jail all these years, but he has a new lawyer who believes the
accused murderer did not do it.
Kenny, Annie's best friend since high school, has always been in love
with her, but she's in love with her fiancé, Scott. No one else knows,
but Kenny and Annie have been meeting in secret for weeks, just to
talk. Now, Annie is missing and Kenny was the last person to her, but he
refuses to go to the police.
With everyone looking for her, no one knows what to think. Maybe
Annie was nervous about the wedding and just needed to get away
from everyone. Or, are all the secrets about to come out?
