    When Aldo's Uncle Gus, a best selling reclusive mystery author learns that his beloved nephew whom he raised was getting married he concluded the fiancée was a gold-digger. He leaves his retreat in Crooked Possum, Missouri to challenge Bebe and learn her true motive. When he arrives in Kansas City at Cyd's home, he finds his inner mind thinking that Bebe's Aunt “Uncle” Cyd is beautiful. As he ends up with one injury after another, Gus and Cyd fall in love.

    MOTHER OF THE BRIDE is an amusing contemporary romance starring two pleasant lead characters whose respective “inner minds” hold delightfully entertaining soliloquies. The story line is amusing though why Cyd puts up with what she does from her family makes her more than a chump and a wimp. Lynn Michaels plays her tale totally for laughs so that the audience obtains a jocular tale that keeps everyone smiling throughout.
