Synopsis (from Amazon): Ever since she was a little girl, Abby Wilkes has dreamed of her wedding, the day when she'd wear a pretty white dress and look like a princess. . . .
That was before her life fell apart in front of the whole world. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her—by changing his status to single on Facebook—while she was trying on the most gorgeous Vera Wang dress for the big day.
Worried, her best friend, Grace, devises the perfect plan to get Abby back on her game. The two of them are going to escape sweltering Boston and its constant reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. In a quaint rented cottage by the sea, Grace is confident the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men.
But Abby and Grace discover that in this era of social media there is no real escape. Dating has never been easy. But now that the rules have changed and the boundaries are blurred beyond recognition, will they ever find true love? And if they do, how can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click?
As the summer winds down to Labor Day, Abby will make some surprising discoveries—about love, men, friendship . . . and, most important, herself.
