When writer-for-hire Jaine Austen signs on to script vows
for the ultimate Bridezilla, "I do's" soon become "I wish I
hadn't's"--and curtains for the bride spell a veil of woes
for Jaine. . .
Jaine's accepted her share of lame gigs to pay the bills,
but rewriting Shakespeare's got to be an all-time low. The
fiasco begins with a call from Jaine's high-school nemesis,

Jaine's determined to learn the truth--if only to end the
hideous walk down memory lane kicked off by her association
Between fending off advances from the nerd of her high
school nightmares and figuring out ways to stop Prozac the
cat from corrupting the victim's pet Poodle, Jaine's
involvement in this case keeps veering between comedy and
tragedy. That is, until another body is discovered--and the
killer starts laying plot for a final act--starring Jaine. . .
