Over protective mothers can be a scary thing, especially to grooms who have just jilted their daughters. An excellent and hilarious read.

I Take This Man Synopsis

When Jersey Girl Penny Bracket is left standing at the alter by fiancé Bram Shriaz she doesn’t quite know how to react. Her mother, Ester, on the other hand knows exactly what to do – track Bram down, knock him unconscious with a bottle of Dom Perignon and imprison him in the attic of her mansion.

Now this may seem a tad extreme. But Ester’s got some serious questions for the fugitive groom…plus she needs someone to write all the return labels for the wedding gifts. But can she find out why Bram got cold feet before everyone else discovers what she’s done?
