Jane Harris, a successful cartoon creator, is to be the bridesmaid for her best friend Holly who is eloping to Italy with Mark. Cal Langdon, an overseas newspaper reporter, is to be Mark's best man. For Jane and Cal it is hate at first sight, although Holly and Mark are sure the two will like each other.
As they travel through Italy, the reader observes Jane and Cal's battle through email messages, blackberry text messages and Jane's travel diary. But as they have to struggle with Italian bureaucracy in order to get a marriage licence and keep the news of the elopement from their families and friends at home who keep sending messages wondering what is going on, Jane and Cal find that despite their differences, they are having a really good time together. To their growing horror, they each begin to realize they are falling in love.
