It’s something I never get to do and welcome the opportunity when I can.
While trying to look for new work, I’ve taken up the activity again.
After arguing with her live-in boyfriend about his inability to commit, Peggy Adams flies to a friend's bachelorette party in Las Vegas, and wakes up next to a man she can't remember.
Hung-over and miserable, she sneaks out of the sleeping man's hotel room and returns home to New York, where her boyfriend apologizes for the fight and gives her a Tiffany box containing a pre-engagement ring. The next day she receives a phone call from the Las Vegas one-night stand, Luke, claiming she's already married to him¬-and he faxes her the license for proof!
When Peggy drives up to New Nineveh to get the marriage annulled, Luke’s Great Aunt refuses to let this happen.
She tells the couple they are to stay married one year (seeing each other only on weekends, since Peggy had a store to run) and if they then choose to end the marriage at that time, they can sell the family house (a sprawling mansion that is falling apart) and split the money. The book outlines the major events of the next year and how Peggy and Luke struggled to keep how they married a secret from the town of New Nineveh, how Peggy struggled to fit in as a WASP, as well as how to keep her own love life together without telling her on again/off again boyfriend she was already married; and ultimately, how the two struggled, separately, to keep themselves from coming out with their true feelings for one another.
But check this one out of the library or I'll send you mine.
