Can you have your (wedding) cake and eat it, too?

Betsy Blessing is about to have it all–the chance to be senior minister of Church of the Shepherd and a long-awaited first date with her best-friend-turned-love-interest, David Swenson. But David’s unexpected marriage proposal and a developer’s surprise offer to buy the dying downtown church building thrust Betsy into a whirlwind of decisions. Betsy’s future mother-in-law, editor of Budget Bride magazine, plans to feature the nuptials in an upcoming issue, but is Betsy ready to buy her wedding gown at Goodwill and register for china at Chips-n-Dings? And not everyone at Church of the Shepherd thinks relocating to the suburbs is a great idea. Can Betsy persuade the naysayers that she can lead them to the Promised Land?

Factor in a homeless man named Booger, a demanding parishioner with a broken hip, and David’s clandestine meetings with his former fiancée, and Betsy has more than she can handle. Is happily ever after out of reach for the fabulous Reverend Blessing?
