Abby is also the bridesmaid in the wedding so her time is stretched pretty thin with no free moments for other activities like solving a homicide involving a member of the wedding party. However, if she wants the wedding to proceed as scheduled so she can collect the money for the floral arrangements, Abby needs to find the killer so she starts questioning the various members of the wedding party from the woman he jilted to the gay groomsman he outed. While she is following up leads, she finds herself trying to prove a prostitution ring is operating in her town and wants to get the evidence that will nab the culprits. These two investigations are linked but by the time Abby figures that out, she is in danger.
