Sherrill Cameron is all a-flutter about her special day. Everything seems perfect, her dress, her veil, the bouquet of flowers, and even the new wardrobe she has purchased for the honeymoon voyage. Then why does she feel like something is wrong when she looks at herself in the mirror? Was it fear, or doubt? She felt so lucky to be marrying Carter McArthur…until she catches him with another woman and finds that his love for her is based on lies and greed. In a last minute switch she sends the other woman down the aisle to marry her bridegroom. Was she doing the right thing? Would she have regrets for not fighting for this man she loved? How long would this aching in her heart last?
Graham Copeland had just arrived in town when he was swept up in a very strange wedding drama. Who knew that this woman that he caught as she fell from her car near the church would become the center of his life so fast? They knew nothing about each other, except what had taken place at the church when Graham helped Sherrill up to the choir balcony, but Graham was quickly swept up with this lovely woman. He’d help her through to the end of the reception no matter what it took. Could Sherrill really trust him? Was he connected to the missing emerald necklace that was a gift from Sherrill’s Aunt Pat Catherwood? Once the wedding was over, would Sherrill ever see her “Beloved Stranger” again?
Carter McArthur was shocked and quite stunned when he saw Arla Prentiss walking towards him in the white bridal gown, instead of Sherrill Cameron. A mixture of fear and anger rose inside him, knowing he had been found out and that he was never going to have a chance at the Catherwood fortune. Why was Arla the bride instead of Sherrill? How would he pay off his many creditors? Would he really lose his business over this misfortunate marriage?
