The irresistible story of a summer New England wedding weekend gone awry--a deliciously biting satirical glimpse into the lives of the well-bred and ill-behaved.

"Beneath the surface of this summery romp lie animosities, well-paced sexual suspense and a clash between appearances and authenticity." --The New York Times Book Review

The Van Meters have gathered at their family retreat on the island of Waskeke to celebrate the marriage of daughter Daphne--seven months pregnant--to the impeccably appropriate Greyson Duff. The weekend is full of champagne, salt air and practiced bonhomie, but long-buried discontent and simmering lust stir beneath the surface.

Winn Van Meter, father of the bride, is not having a good time. Barred from the exclusive social club hes been eyeing since birth, hes also tormented by an inappropriate crush on Daphnes beguiling bridesmaid, Agatha, and the fear that his daughter, Livia--recently heartbroken by the son of his greatest rival--is a too-ready target for the wiles of Greysons best man. When old resentments, a beached whale and an escaped lobster are added to the mix, the wedding that should have gone off with military precision threatens to become a spectacle of misbehavior.
