Bee wanted the perfect wedding; she got the “Singles.”

Back in her single days—before she met the man of her dreams—Beth “Bee” Evans hated being forced to attend weddings solo. Determined to spare her friends the same humiliation, she invites everyone on her list with a guest. Much to her chagrin, however, Hannah, Vicki, Rob, Joe, and Nancy insist upon attending Bee’s lavish Chesapeake Bay nuptials alone. The frustrated bride dubs them the “Minus-Ones” and their collective decision wreaks unintended havoc on her otherwise perfectly planned wedding weekend.

One of today’s most popular relationship columnists, Meredith Goldstein, has penned a sparkling debut novel that chronicles the promises and disappointments of love and friendship with humor, compassion, and wisdom.

It would have been acceptable in a recession for Bee to invite singles to the wedding without a plus-one, but Bee wanted every guest to have the option of bringing a companion. But the Singles had chosen to come alone, and Bee just couldn't understand it. When she was a Single, Bee resented brides who didn't give her a plus-one simply because she didn't have a serious boyfriend. Bee vowed that when she got married, she'd grant plus-ones to everyone. No one would have to be alone. Almost everyone on the invite list had taken Bee up on her offer. Except for the Singles, who, in Bee's opinion, were adrift not only on her dry-erase board but also in life.
